Keeping Parcel Deliveries Safe

How can you keep home deliveries safe? With safety and security foremost in everyone’s minds at the moment Pritchard & Company offer some advice on keeping doorstep deliveries safe at your property.

E-commerce sales have increased during the pandemic and deliveries are on the rise in the run up to Christmas, so the security of parcels dropped on the doorstep is a current topic of concern.

Pritchard & Company covers a wide area and the majority of properties are in villages or rural, so there is more space to erect a purpose built delivery box. Many of our clients have found the following solutions:

  • A delivery box in a wall or with a chute which keeps parcel delivery safe
  • Advanced technology such as video doorbells and safe boxes
  • More people are currently working from home, which means you can schedule a delivery for a time you are able to collect it straight away
  • There is often the option of leaving clear and detailed delivery instructions for a parcel to be placed in a hidden nook or behind a plant or shrub to deter passers by from temptation
  • Or request a delivery to be signed for
  • It also makes sense to track the parcel online which the major delivery companies now offer

Whatever works for you, stay safe and stay alert.
