Ordering packages, while away on vacation.

Ordering packages, while away on vacation. All of us who are lucky enough to go on vacation, normally take it to spend time with our family, or relatives in different destinations around the world, but that doesn’t stop us from using the internet, or our smartphone to shop from anywhere in the world, as long as we have an internet connection. The problem with shopping online is if we’re going to be gone for an extended period of time, and the package that you order is going to arrive at your home, or apartment, condo, townhome, and etc., in three days, when you’re not going to be home for another week. If you put your mail on hold through the United States Postal Service, then you’re in pretty good hands, but depending on the merchant’s shipper of the product that you buy your item from they might not know that your going to be gone for another week, and so the item is marked as leave the item if there’s no response, so the UPS, FedEx, Amazon, DHL driver, and etc., will honor the request of the merchant, and leave the item at your address, and soon you continue to order, and packages begin to stack up on your porch, and after a couple of days, there might be 10 packages stacked up on your porch, and no one is there to retrieve your packages, so guess what a porch pirate will notice that your out of town because there were five packages the day before, and today there are ten, so they will boldly park in front of your house like they know you to steal your packages. The solution to help address this problem would be to communicate with your neighbor to inform them that you’re going out of town, and to retrieve your packages until you return, have a Ring doorbell, Nest doorbell, or any other type of doorbell with a recording function to catch porch pirates, or simply wait until you know that you’re going to be home to start shopping on the internet, or using your smartphone to shop. Happy Holidays, and best to all in 2020! Ordering packages, while away on vacation. More than just a blog!
