As UK online sales reach an all time high – expected to be £116bn in 2015* – the delivery parcel has become a target for burglars. Tailing delivery drivers and scooping up parcels before the rightful owner can get to them is a common occurrence in the US and, sadly, becoming more prevalent in the UK. In 2015 as many as 23 million parcels were stolen from doorsteps in the US by ‘Porch Pirates’ – criminals who follow delivery vans around and scoop up any parcels that cannot be safely delivered… right off your doorstep! A LockTin secure parcel delivery box will ensure you can grab a bargin without risking losing it to a Porch Pirate.
Secure parcel delivery box
Manufactured from robust, galvanised steel a LockTin is a safe and secure outside delivery box that is designed to be affixed to a building, garage or garden wall for maximum security. At the heart of a LockTin secure parcel delivery box is a clever lock mechanism that ensures only authorised personnel can access parcels, thanks to the ability to programme unique passcodes. When you shop online simply leave instructions to deliver to the LockTin, together with the pre-programmed passcode number that will allow couriers access to the LockTin secure parcel delivery box. When the courier arrives, he or she simply needs to enter the code number, put your parcel in the LockTin, scan the unique PIN number, barcode or QR code that is on the inside of the door (which will act as proof of your signature), and your parcel will be waiting for you when you get home, safe from unwanted attention.
LockTin secure delivery box
Available in two sizes; standard 700mm high x 300mm deep x 400mm wide, and large 800mm high x 425mm deep x 500mm wide, the LockTin secure delivery box opens from front making it much simpler to stow awkward shaped parcels and dramatically reducing the chance of water ingress – keeping parcels dry and out of the reach of thieves.
