Online shopping and the parcel delivery network are so slick nowadays, and internet shopping has become an intrinsic part of our lives. The one pitfall is the final metre! That final part of the process when the courier must hand over the goods to the consumer. Part of the reason for the success of online shopping is the time it saves us. The beauty of not having to go to the shops; of having the complete contents of the high street, then some more, at our fingertips, and ready to wing its way to our front doors. But what about at the doorstep, what happens then? We definitely don’t want to receive a ‘Sorry you were out’ card, particularly if we’re not out, but neither do we want a parcel sitting on our doorstep, in full view of passers-by, and ready to be tea-leafed! Oh, the joy of having your own parcel postbox.
Without boxes for parcels, this is what can happen: We may have to cancel our plans, to ensure we are at home when the delivery arrives; but what time the delivery is going to arrive is a completely different game. We may not be able to cancel our plans, so we must arrange a re-delivery. This requires phoning companies who may not respond, may pass us through to some far-flung Asian country where they struggle to understand us, or may just keep us waiting for 5-minutes before putting us through to the answering machine. None of this bears contemplating. We may receive a ‘sorry you were out’ card, and then we’ve missed our parcel. It may have been quicker to go to the High Street in the first place. The parcel may have been left with our neighbour, the one who you dread bumping into… You need to make sure you’re there to receive your parcel. Not only this, but you must make yourself available, in other words not having a shower or being out of earshot of the doorbell. Even then, you need to make a desperate dash for the door, when it does eventually ring, before the courier, who has a short attention span, gives up and walks off back to his van with your parcel. You definitely don’t want your parcel left on the doorstep, offering itself up to be pinched, or left in your recycling bin on the day your recycling bin is emptied! Neither do you want your parcel going back to the Post Office or depot, because then, the convenience of buying online suddenly becomes an inconvenience.
Delivery boxes were conceived to solve these headaches. Parcel drop boxes are a means to receive your parcels for you when you are not at home. Boxes for delivery can hold many parcels, plus your mail, when you are not at home. Or, at home, but not available to respond to the courier’s knock at your door.
