Leaving packages out in the open in a mailroom is a porch pirates dream. The mailroom is designed to be secure for residents to be able to come to pick up their mail, and packages, there are also indicators to let other couriers know that packages aren’t to be left in the mailroom, but with time being a factor, and not wanting to be late, a courier will leave a package in a
mailroom figuring that the letter carrier will pick up the package to deliver the package to the front door. That’s not always the case especially if the carrier has attempted to deliver a package to the front door of a customer, and you need a code to enter the elevator, and you don’t happen to have the new code, and the area is restricted to residents only, then you will not have access to deliver packages to residents doors. What should you do as a courier, if the package specifically says to leave the item at the residence, and the office will not accept packages for their residents? Scan the package, as being attempted, and take the item back to your office, so that the resident will have to be able to come in person to pick up the package. What can be done to remedy the situation?
1. Install a package delivery smart parcel delivery system like Luxer One so that residents can pick up their packages in the comfort of their building.
2. The reason why the system works is because both the courier, and the resident must verify who they are before they can put a package into a parcel locker, and
the resident must verify who they are before they can pick up their package, without having to deal with a middleman.
3. A porch pirate doesn’t live in the building nor can they access the smart parcel locker to verify who they are, and the Luxer One system has a camera installed that
can capture your picture so they don’t want to be seen on camera to potentially blow their cover.
Leaving packages out in the open in a mailroom should never happen, it’s like leaving your front door open so that a thief can enter your residence
without being challenged. Luxer One is one solution that works in a large apartment complex, as well as a small complex as well. www.iwantmymail.com More
