Are Porch Pirates Targeting Your Packages?

Author: Jane Martin/Monday, August 06, 2018/Categories: Uncategorized

Our to do list grows longer every day. There doesn't seem to be enough time to get everything done. Because of this, more people are turning to the internet to do their shopping. With more shopping comes more crime. Packages, left by delivery men, are being stolen from porches more often. What are we to do? The easiest solution would be to have your packages sent to your office. For some, this is not possible. You could ask for a signature confirmation. That way if you are not home the package couldn't be left. You could possibly get a neighbor to sign and hold your package. Amazon has something called Amazon Key. To use this service you have to install an electronic lock and camera.Then you can unlock your door and let them set your package inside your door. You would be able to view them live from the camera. I'm not sure what the hiring process is for delivery drivers, but I don't think I want to be unlocking my door for a stranger. This service is only available in select cities.

I have a solution. You could rent a parcel box. There is no long term commitment. They are reasonably priced. It's the perfect way to have your package shipped.
No worries as to whether the porch pirates have been at your home. It's safe and reliable. Internet shopping has become a way of life for most of us. It's a necessity if we want to spend time with our families. Make sure your receive your packages.

If you would like more information, please call or stop by our office.

Until next time....Be the change you wish to see in the world.
