We've shipped thousands of items safely to The Dominican Republic.
"My husband and I decided to relocate in the Dominican Republic from Canada. When we first made the decision, the biggest obstacle was that we wanted to move all of our possessions to Punta Cana. This ended up being the least of our worries. ShipToDR safely moved all of our furniture and belongings from Toronto to our new home in the Dominican Republic."
"I try to help out my family in Santo Domingo, but over the last few years, finding a reliable shipping company was proving to be difficult. That is until we found Shiptodr. I have shipped everything from a microwave to a barrel of food and the process has always been quick and easy and the staff are always friendly."

Yes, we do charge for storage of packages that cannot be received. This policy is in place to ensure efficient and fair use of our storage facilities. Here's why we implement this charge:
Limited Storage Space: Our storage facilities have finite space, and we need to manage it effectively to accommodate packages for all our customers. Charging for storage of unclaimed packages encourages prompt retrieval or arrangement for delivery, preventing undue occupancy of our storage areas.
Operational Costs: Maintaining secure and accessible storage incurs operational costs, including security measures, climate control, and staff to manage the facility. The associated expenses are shared among all users of the storage service, and charging for unclaimed packages helps offset these costs.
Encourages Timely Action: Charging for storage serves as an incentive for customers to promptly collect or arrange delivery for their packages. This proactive approach helps streamline our operations, reduces congestion in the storage area, and ensures a smoother experience for all customers.
Storage Charges: The storage fee for unclaimed packages is $5 per day per package, depending on size. Items larger than a box of 24" x 24" x 24" will be approximately $10 per day.
Encourages Communication: If there are circumstances preventing the receipt of a package, we encourage customers to communicate with us. By engaging in a dialogue, we may be able to offer solutions or extensions on a case-by-case basis. This open communication helps us better understand the needs of our customers and work together to find suitable resolutions.
TV Shipping Policy
At ShiptoDR.com, we are committed to ensuring your satisfaction with your TVs journey from Canada to the Dominican Republic. In the event your TV incurs damage during transit, our replacement policy is as follows:
Eligibility for Replacement: If your TV arrives with physical damage (excluding dead pixels), such as cracks or breakage, you are eligible for a replacement.
Replacement Criteria: The replacement will be for a TV of equivalent size, not specifications. This means the replacement TV may differ in brand, model, or other specifications but will match the screen size of the original tv.
To maintain the integrity of our shipping process and uphold our replacement policy, we require two critical inspections:
Pre-Shipping Inspection in Canada:
- Prior to shipping, you or a ShiptoDR.com employee must confirm that the TV is free from physical damage (e.g., cracks) and is fully operational.
- This inspection ensures the TV is in good condition before beginning its transit.
Post-Shipping Inspection in the Dominican Republic:
- Upon arrival, you or a ShiptoDR.com representative must inspect the TV for any transit damage.
- This inspection confirms the condition of the TV upon completion of its journey.
Please note that dead pixels are not considered damage under this policy. If your TV arrives with dead pixels but no other physical damage, it will not be eligible for replacement under this policy.
If damage is observed during the post-shipping inspection, please report it immediately to our customer service team to initiate the replacement process.
