Fighting Porch Pirates


With Express Business Center’s Mailbox Services

According to a recent study, 31% of people surveyed have been the victim of porch pirates. ‘Porch pirate’ is the term given to thieves who are stealing delivered packages from doorsteps. It’s becoming more and more of an issue, unfortunately, with the rise of e-commerce. As e-commerce continues to grow, so will this issue.

With the busy lives we lead today, the convenience of shopping and ordering online is extremely appealing. We can order from home, at work, or even on the go with our smart phones and mobile devices.

Judging by the most recent holiday season, e-commerce shows no signs of slowing down. 5 years ago, UPS delivered about 500 million packages during the holidays. In 2017, they delivered upwards of 750 million. For porch pirates, that’s easy access to a gold mine. What could be easier than walking up to a doorstep and swiping a package?

Porch Pirates can strike anywhere, no matter if you live in a rural, suburban or urban area. Especially for those that do a lot of online shopping, this is a rising problem that can’t be ignored.

Packages are delivered while we are at work, at our children’s basketball games, out to dinner, etc. We have busy lives, and no one should have to sit at home waiting for their package to arrive for fear it will be stolen. For many, a security system with surveillance cameras is simply not in the budget. So, what can you do to protect your packages, and the hard earned money you spent purchasing them?
