Who’s at your door?

Online shopping is on the rise.  Eight out of ten Canadians now shop online.  I’m not here to talk about your shopping habits.  I’m here to discuss the pickup of those deliveries.

How many home deliveries do you think are made in a year?

According to Canada Post, they delivered 900,000 a day during the “slow” summer of 2015. (Report) That rate is increasing on an annual basis.  They now routinely have Million Parcel Mondays.  That’s where Canada Post will deliver a million or more parcels in a single day.  It’s on Mondays because of the surge in weekend shopping online.

But what about all of those deliveries?  What if they don’t require a signature?  They’ll sit on your front step or hanging out of your mailbox until you get home.  It’s wonderfully convenient for you….and the bad guys.

Here are a few quick tips you can use to make sure that new shirt is still there when you get home.

  • Have the packages delivered to your office or somewhere you trust.
  • Get a PO box and pick up all of your mail there.
  • Install a camera that’s motion activated so you get notified when someone is near the door.

My family and I use all three of these methods.  Our favorite is the doorbell camera.  It serves double duty because we know when someone rings the doorbell, can chat with the person at the door, and even unlock it…RIGHT FROM OUR PHONES!!  It also notifies us if someone is just lingering around at the bottom of the stairs.  Of course we sell it, so I like it.

Do you know who’s at your door right now? Call me so we can make sure you do.
