You may have noticed that the world has changed a bit in 2020.
The COVID-19 outbreak has truly been a wake-up call to the world to the dangers of pandemics and how woefully unprepared for them we are. It has also changed a lot of the habits of the global population: including those related to shopping.
With the UK still very much in quite a strict lockdown, the vast majority of people are doing their Christmas shopping online. If Amazon wasn’t already taking over the world, it definitely is now! This habit is also expected to last, as social distancing and other precautions remain in place over the next year or so, until we can wave goodbye to COVID-19.
If we assume that you will be doing a lot more online shopping from now on, we can also assume it is essential to invest in a secure parcel box that will receive packages for you when you’re not at home. Quarantine won’t last forever, but packages being dropped off behind your bins need to be swapped for a proper delivery box.
Here is why a large locking mailbox for packages is now necessary:
We all know that the UK is rainy for most of the year. While we would love some snow this Christmas and might even get lucky, we all know that what is probably in store is a whole lot of more rain.
If you don’t have a place for the couriers to safely place your packages, they might just leave them somewhere in the rain. Leading up to Christmas, this could have devastating consequences.
Most wall-mounted parcel boxes are fitted with an anti-theft mechanism that prevents thieves from sticking their hand through the top and taking your precious packages.
Ensure yourself some peace of mind, knowing that your packages are safe at your home in a metal box rather than behind the bins where anyone can get at them.
With a wall-mounted parcel drop box, you no longer have to worry about being at home to accept a delivery. Imagine all the freedom you could have! You could even go on holiday and come back a week later to your parcel still safely in your parcel drop box.
You will likely be doing more shopping online in the future, and you will at some point be spending a lot more time away from your home, so you can see how necessary a parcel drop box will become in the future.
