With online shopping and home delivery options becoming increasingly more popular, the unfortunate occurrence of package theft is also becoming more common. Here are a few simple ways to help reduce the risk of becoming a victim of porch piracy.
Hold your mail with the post office – this assures that no packages will be delivered to your door and you can pick up your packages directly at the post office.
Amazon and UPS delivery options – both services offer package lockers all across town to offer a more convenient and safe way to retrieve your packages.
Home security cameras – this may help deter thieves from stealing and will help police identify the suspect if they do steal.
Send packages to your work – easy solution to have your packages delivered securely.
Ask a neighbor for a favor – reciprocate the favor when they need it, keep an eye out for each others packages.
