They will take risks for the opportunity to steal your package. This sounds like a bold statement, but it’s true. A customer recently reported pulling into their driveway, and saw a package sitting on their front porch. They pulled their car into their garage, went inside of their home to turn off their alarm, and proceeded to come outside to retrieve their package, and just that fast the 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 leaving 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 item behind it, or if the porch has a wall behind it, hide the package, because if the item is left where it can be seen from the street, then a thief will simply walk up to your porch to steal the item. Having an alarm system that records really helps, but thieves figure if they can shield their face then they can’t be caught, so they will take the chance for the reward of stealing your item. Some neighborhoods have neighborhood watch associations, but here’s what you should pay attention to, cars following, or trailing USPS, UPS, FedEx, Amazon, 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 your going to be home to have the item delivered, because if you order something, and you’re not going to be home for 5 days, and the item is going to be delivered in 3 days, then you risk your item being stolen. If you have a relative, or neighbor, or friend who can pick up the item, inform them to do so.
