What is Germany Express?

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

The easiest way to order from GearBest is Germany Express. Unfortunately, other german speaking countries like Austria or parts of Switzerland are not eligible to use this method. For customers from austria we found a trick explained here.

The shipping method is with 1-3€ price very inexpensive in comparison. It also is among the fastest with as little as 8 days delivery (for a 10.000km distance and customs clearance) while only using well known companies like Hermes as partners. This also makest it the safest method next to DHL Express.

During the checkout process you can choose a shipping method. Germany Express can often be find under “Standard Shipping” or “Priority Shipping.
Unfortunately the HK-2 Warehouse and certain products like Batteries do not support Germany Express yet.

How to track your germany Express order?

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

The easiest way to track your order is Sky56.cn. Alternatively you can hop over to the Hermes tracking page (in german) and check your order there. In general the chinese tracking provider is a wee bit faster and you can see changes earlier. Don’t be afraid, if the tracking updates slowly. GearBest is handling thousands of parcels and it may take a couple days for the airmail to arrive in the London sorting center.

[/fusion_text][fusion_imageframe image_id=”15251″ style_type=”none” hover_type=”none” align=”center” lightbox=”no” alt=”gearbest tracking sky56.cn” linktarget=”_self” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″]https://bestgear.me/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/germany-express-tracking.png[/fusion_imageframe][fusion_separator style_type=”none” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” bottom_margin=”15″ border_size=”0″ alignment=”center” /][fusion_text]

After arriving in London, the parcel will now be prepared for importing into the EU-zone. This process may take a little while and depends on the busy customs and the kind of goods you ordered. After a 2nd Review and obtaining the respective paperwork, it is Hermes turn to pick up the parcel and deliver it to your door in Germany.

The Otto Group owned logistic business is worldwide active and in GearBests case even faster than the DHL Shipping, which was used before. They deliver even in remote areas even though some smaller towns do not have a local Hermes business.

In this specific case it took roundabout the promised 15 days for the parcel to arrive in Germany. This is way faster than Netherland Post or other free shipping methods that take up to five weeks for the parcel to arrive. It also is just slightly slower than DHL Express, where it may take up to 7-10 days for any parcel to arrive. Definitely worth the low shipping costs.

Conclusion: why is Germany Express better?

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]

Ordering from China and specificaly GearBest can be frightening, but with Germany Express you have a shipping method at hand, that is moderately fast, cheap and more secure than any free shipping option.

Delivered by Hermes – a well known logistics company made in Germany – adds that little extra of trust on top. Also, if your order is paid via PayPal there is a 180 day buyers protection added on top of it. What else can go wrong?
