Shipping information

You are currently on our Dutch site. All the information below is pertaining to shipping information within this region. Please note that an online order can only be delivered within the shipping location you have chosen. If you wish your order to be delivered to an address outside of this location, please select a different location in the top left corner of our website (for orders outside of the EU, please consult the section on international orders).

You can opt for delivery to any given address (your home, work or other) via our carrier GLS. Currently, we only deliver within the EU*. The shipping methods offered during checkout differ based on your shipping address. It is currently not possible to collect orders from an Essentiel Store.

*We currently do not deliver to Malta. 



Essentiel Antwerp works with GLS to offer the best possible shipping service.

GLS delivers on business days between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m and GLS will inform you via e-mail about the expected delivery date. Is that day inconvenient for you? No problem, you can simply change the delivery via the internet-link which you receive along with the shipment confirmation. You can for example choose to have the package delivered to a GLS parcel shop near you or to a different address. You will receive an e-mail once your package has been delivered.

Was your package delivered to a GLS Parcelshop? Please be sure to bring identification when you go collect the package. You will have 10 days to pick up the package before it returns to Essentiel Antwerp. We will then contact you to arrange a new delivery. Please note that additional costs may apply.
