PSA 407 Presents,
It’s that time of year again when we all go crazy ordering from Amazon and varies other “shop until you go broke” websites! Here are just a few tips that I have shared with my family and friends as well as use myself:
Insure high value items! UPS will not leave a high value item unattended.
Leave instructions regarding where drivers should leave packages. (Side door, backyard, with neighbor, etc.)
Have packages delivered to your work address.
Designate a neighborhood business as delivery points (coordinate with business owner).
Four things you can do to prevent your packages from being stolen.
Best: Be home to accept the package.
Next best: Have it delivered to your job.
Last best (lol!): Instructions for the driver to deliver the package to a neighbor that will be home and is willing to accept the package.
Not even a real option!!!: Just don’t buy anything on-line.
Remember: Without instructions, a driver has the discretion whether or not to leave the package at the door. If you do not want your package left for fear of theft, you must leave instructions.
