Imagine you have just moved into your new home: the dream home you’ve always imagined you’d one day live in.
You have ordered some decorative items for the house. As you click “confirm delivery”, a chill runs down your spine. You will now have to impose another bout of social distancing on yourself and stay at home for days on end, waiting for the parcel to arrive. Or, you will have to ask one of your new neighbours if they might be kind enough to take possession of your parcel in your stead.
Are they trustworthy though? And are you really going to ask for a favour two minutes after introducing yourself? There has to be a better way of doing this.
Given the fact that you are reading this post, you already know what the solution to your problem is: an I Love Parcels parcel delivery box. But let us break the advantages of owning one down for you, before you make your purchase.
A Convenient Way to Shop
Owning a parcel box ensures you never have to be at home again to accept a delivery. You don’t have to plan your daily tasks around the delivery van’s arrival, forlornly staring out the window as car after car passes by, without any sign of your parcel.
You don’t have to madly rush home from the local shops, only to find the delivery guy has gotten fed up with waiting and has left you a “Sorry we missed you” note. You no longer have to frequent the post office in search of your missed deliveries.
A delivery box will be readily available to accept your parcels 24/7, 365 days a year. It won’t care about delivery delays. Whenever you do get home, your parcel will snuggly be nestled in your parcel box.
Parcel Theft Prevention at Its Best
The rise in online shopping has also inspired a rise in parcel theft. With so many deliveries zooming around, many of them left unattended, not so carefully concealed behind your bins, the unscrupulous have found a way to take advantage of the side effects of the pandemic.
No matter how good of a hiding place for your parcels you think you have devised, nothing compares to a parcel delivery box. It’s safe and sturdy, and in order to pry it open, a thief would have to cause quite a bit of noise, which will dissuade even the more reckless among them.
Having a parcel box installed in your home means that you can now order even the more expensive items online you have previously been hesitant to add to your cart. They will be perfectly safe in your delivery box.
Parcel theft can, sadly, also lead to identity theft, and dealing with the ramifications of it can often turn your previously quiet life into quite the nightmare. However, when you entrust your packages to a parcel box, no one can get at your personal information, and your identity is kept safe.
No one appreciates a fine day as much as we Brits do. Given the sheer amount of rainfall we see every year, no wonder we are as obsessed about the weather as we indeed are.
A very familiar offshoot of said rainy weather conditions is returning home to a soggy parcel sitting behind the bins. At least it’s still there.
However, not being able to predict when a parcel is likely to arrive may leave them out in the rain or snow for longer than you’d have anticipated, and their contents may get quite damaged. Consequently, you may not even be able to return those headphones, since they have probably been damaged due to your own business meeting running over, which has then made you miss the bus and resulted in an extra hour of rain hammering down on your parcel.
Naturally, one of our parcel boxes will completely prevent any weather increment to touch your parcels. Well, admittedly they will catch a few drops en route between delivery van and parcel box, but you know what we mean.
‘Round the Clock Deliveries
A parcel box also translates to ‘round the clock deliveries. No longer do you have to carefully choose delivery times (and often pay the premium for this added convenience) to ensure you are at home at the appointed hour.
You are able to choose free shipping and rest assured your package will be delivered. There may of course be some exceptions of course, as certain brands may be reluctant to leave a high-value item in your parcel box, and you certainly don’t want to leave any perishables in there too long.
However, you are able to take that staycation without any fear of a missed delivery, and you no longer have to open your door to strangers after dark. The delivery box will handle all the unpleasantness for you, and act as your watchdog.
And ‘Round the Clock Shopping
Owning a delivery box also provides the infinite convenience of shopping at any time of day, night, month or year. You are able to take full advantage of all of your favourite brands’ discounts, sales, limited offers and personalised deals.
You won’t have to think about the cost and convenience of delivery ever again. If you can pay your VAT at the time of placing your order, you can even have more freedom ordering from overseas.
This can save you some money too, as you have the complete freedom to shop at the best possible prices, never having to worry about parcel theft or item damage, and can even forget you’ve made that order, only for it to make your day when it does eventually arrive.
