Protection Against Package Theft

Courier Deliveries

If you are an avid online shopper, you may have experienced challenges with your deliveries in the past. Some common issues include:

  • Package theft. Leaving a package on your front steps may be convenient, but that also leaves your package exposed to the possibility of theft. An easily accessible parcel can be a great temptation.
  • Leaving a package on your front porch may also expose your treasured gift to weather damage from snow and rain.
  • Packages that require an adult signature to complete a delivery may alleviate concerns about leaving unattended packages outdoors, but it’s often not convenient to wait at home all day to accept a delivery.
  • Some couriers now only attempt one delivery before redirecting a package to an alternate delivery location, which may not always be convenient for you. In addition, these redirected packages only stay at the new location for a few short days before being returned to sender.
  • For more rural deliveries, most couriers won’t deliver to a P.O. Box.
