How to Prevent Package Theft
The leaves have fallen, temperatures have cooled, and the stores are busier than ever. The holiday season is finally here and we couldn’t be more thrilled. During this exciting time, many homeowners purchase items to be delivered to their homes. With an increase in deliveries, thieves are on the prowl. To ensure packages are safe from theft, it is important to take preventative measures. Learn some helpful ways to avoid packages from being stolen with Moore Protection.
Track Your Package
When your order has shipped, you will likely receive an email or notification alerting you about the estimated delivery date. Packages can either be delivered early, on time or later than expected. To know when your package will arrive, you can track it using the number provided to you by the business or organization. This allows you to be aware of where the package is so that you can plan to be home at the time it is in transit.
Schedule Delivery Times
If you know you won’t be able to retrieve your package at a certain time or date, you can schedule a delivery time with the shipping service provider. Everyone has responsibilities that they have to perform every day, so selecting a time that works best for you can ensure that your package gets to its destination without being picked up by porch pirates.
Reach Out to Neighbors
Out of town or won’t be home in time? Don’t stress! Get in touch with a trusted neighbor to pick up your package from your doorstep. He or she can store it in their home until you are able to grab it from them.
Request a Signature
Another great way to avoid theft is by requesting a signature for the package. This means that someone who lives inside the property (you or a family member) has to sign in order to receive the package. If no one is home to sign, a receipt will most likely be left and another delivery attempt will be made the next day.
Send to a Different Location
Theft can be prevented by having your package delivered to a more secure location. If you work from an office, you can have it delivered to your workplace. Another option is to have it delivered to a parcel locker.
