Porch pirates will take risks for the opportunity to steal your package.

Porch pirates will take risks for the opportunity to steal your package. This sounds like a bold statement, but it’s true. A customer, and her husband recently reported pulling into their driveway, and saw a package sitting on their front porch. They pulled their car into their garage, went inside their home to turn off their alarm, and to also use the restroom, and proceeded to come outside to retrieve their package, and just that fast their package was gone. Someone was watching, and they saw the opportunity to steal a package that they thought had value. This is happening around the country, not only in the United States, but around the world. Logistics companies have to be responsible when delivering items at homes, if there is somewhere on the porch, such as a big flowerpot that can shield a package, then try to hide the package behind it, or if the porch has a pillar, hide the package so that it can’t be seen from the street. If a porch pirate can see a package from the street, then they will simply walk up to your porch to steal your package, but having a security camera such as a Goggle Nest, Ring security camera, and etc., can aid you in preventing a porch pirate from attempting to steal your packages, which might contain Christmas gifts that you plan on wrapping, and gifting during the holiday season.
Some neighborhoods have neighborhood watch associations, but here’s what you should pay attention to, cars following, or trailing USPS, UPS, FedEx, Amazon, DHL, or any logistics vehicles that deliver packages to your homes. If you’re going to be out of town for an extended period of time, try to wait until you’re going to be home to have the item delivered, because if you order something, and you’re not going to be home for 5 more days, and the item is scheduled to be delivered in 3 days, then you risk having your package being stolen by a porch pirate. They often check to see if packages stay at the same house in the same location for days, this is a clue that you might be out of town, and it makes their porch piracy that much easier. If you have a relative, or neighbor, or a friend that you can trust, have them to pickup the packages for you. Happy Holidays! Porch pirates will take risks for the opportunity to steal your package.
