IMPORTANT information about delivery

Especially for Airbnb customer or customer living in JAPAN.

* IMPORTANT : PLEASE READ because you might not receive gear in some case.

  1. We cannot deliver to Capsule hotel and love hotels because they reject ANY delivery items and you cannot receive them at reception.
  2. If you are staying in an accommodation offered by Couch Surfing (eg. Airbnb), please contact to your host in advance that you would like to receive a package at your accommodation.

If you are staying in an accommodation offered by Couch Surfing (eg. Airbnb), please contact to your host in advance that you would like to receive a package at your accommodation. We had several troubles happened in these case with couch surfing customers. 
>>>Why delivery to Airbnb could be a reason of trouble? Read more by clicking the link.   

    Trouble example are below:

  • NOT delivered because host name was not written on the shipping label.
    (We could have be avoided this trouble if you communicate with your host in advance)
  • Address was completely WRONG.
    (Host might not tell you the correct address to keep their privacy)
  • Host does not allow you to deliver the rental gear because they do not want to owe paying the fee caused by you.
    (Some host misunderstand the rental system, some people think they have to pay instead of you if something happened like you lost gear etc.)
  • Host could not say “NO receiving” to you because they scared of BAD review, and they confessed it and let us tell you “NO receiving” when we made confirmation call, then it concluded “No receiving”.
    (Saying NO is very difficult in Japanese culture, so you should respect their feeling, You are actually asking an exception!)

If you would like to be delivered to Airbnb apartment, Please explain our service to your host and get information below from your host! 
You can also show our Japanese website (http://kobeoutdoor.com) to explain if you need. 

  • What name should KOBEOUTDOOR write on shipping label to deliver gear smoothly ? Mostly Host’s name have to be written.
  • What is the apartment address in detail? (please include room number to make delivery smooth!)
  • Host’s phone number in case the delivery man would like to ask something regarding about delivery
  • If your host would like to receive your rental package instead of you, host’s available time slot for delivery. The time slot can be chosen morning(9:00AM-12:00PM),14:00-16:00,16:00-18:00,18:00-20:00 or 19:00-21:00.
