Making the extra effort can make the difference in you receiving your package, or your package being stolen. It might sound crazy, but leaving a package on a porch that is visible has a greater chance of being stolen, than you the homeowner being struck by lightning. Since the world had to deal with the Coronavirus epidemic in 2020, people have made wearing a mask part of their daily routine, so for a porch pirate to walk up to a porch, to steal a package is hardly questioned if it’s not caught on camera, or the porch pirate is seen running away from a porch to a waiting vehicle with a package in hand. What can delivery merchants do to ensure that a delivery is safe, and accurate for a customer, who might be waiting on diabetic medication?
1. Check to make sure that you’re at the right house, if there’s no number on the house, walk out to the street, and look at the curb, sometimes the customer will have their address painted on the curb, or sidewalk, when the delivery driver pulls up to the house that is receiving a package delivery.
2, If the driver knocks, or rings your doorbell, don’t ignore the knock, or ring, because your package might require a signature, in order for the carrier to be able to leave the package at your residence.
3. If you don’t have a porch, try to have a barrier that a delivery merchant can hide your package from the street, remember if it can’t be seen then likely it will not be stolen.
4. Use an arrow that points to where you would like for the carrier to leave your package, often if a carrier, or delivery merchant sees an arrow, they will leave the package where the customer requested for the item to be left, if the homeowner isn’t at home during the delivery.
5. With the recent time change leave your light on at your house for safer deliveries from your delivery merchants, and porch pirates don’t care for lights, they’d rather work in the dark.
