Helpful tips to prevent package thefts:
- Have packages delivered to your work. Delivering packages to a job increases visibility and reduces the chances that your packages might be swiped unexpectedly.
- Schedule deliveries for times you will be home. This keeps packages from sitting unattended for long periods of time.
- Buddy up with a neighbor.
- Require a signature. This extra insurance ensures that you won’t have packages piling up at your door.
