As we gradually approach a season where the days get shorter and shorter, it is quite understandable if you have reservations about letting strangers into your home once it gets dark.
However, you may be left with no choice with “round-the-clock” deliveries currently being made in response to the increase in delivery demand.
Most people prefer to cosy down in the comfort of their home once darkness sets in. In autumn, when it gets dark much earlier, it is only to be expected that you feel somewhat rattled if a stranger knocks on your door in what you perceive is the middle of the night, when in fact it might only be 7PM.
With couriers now operating around the clock, you could be receiving a delivery from as early as 7AM till late into the night. Clearly, there will be times when you need to unlock your doors in the dark.
Evening Deliveries and the Vulnerable
Receiving deliveries late at night could put you or your loved ones at risk. You may be completely unphased about opening your front door late in the night, but you do need to be aware of the potential risks involved, however unlikely they may seem to be.
Having a large parcel drop box in front of your home means you don’t actually have to come to the door. You can feel more comfortable ordering online instead of going to a physical shop, as you are fully aware that once the order arrives, you do not have to open the door to a stranger.
With the current state of the world, online shopping is definitely not a bad idea.
Benefits of the Outdoor Parcel Box
Once you have a parcel drop box installed outside your home, you no longer have to open your door to strangers at night. It provides the certainty of knowing that at whichever time a delivery arrives, the delivery man can make good use of the parcel box, without having to bother you.
The parcel drop box is simple, secure and easy to use. It is made of strong galvanised steel and a powder coating that is weather-resistant, which will keep your parcels safe from both theft and the elements.
Instead of stepping out into the cold, damp, dark night to collect your parcels, you can just wait till the morning without any fear of your parcel getting damaged or stolen.
Our parcel boxes have been designed to help you receive parcels at all times of the day and night. Be it very early in the morning or very late in the night, you can go about your day knowing you don’t even have to get dressed to greet the delivery man, or have to interrupt an online video meeting when the doorbell rings.
If you are out to the shops, you won’t have to rush home just because there is a delivery van pulling up to your driveway.
Take a look at the iLoveParcels parcel boxes, and choose the one that best fits your online shopping needs. You won’t be disappointed, and you’ll even wonder how you’ve managed to live without one for so long!
