How To Prevent Package Theft

We may be pros at finding deals, but we also realize that getting the deals to your house is a whole other layer of the process. We wanted to help complete the process by writing down our tips on how to prevent package theft with these handy tips and products. Yep, this post has been a long time coming!

With more and more people ordering online (we’re talking $214.6 billion spent on e-commerce sites in Q3 of 2021, with a huge spike expected for Q4 because, well, holidays), packages are getting dropped off constantly. To that end, it’s likely you’re getting multiple drop-offs from USPS, UPS, FedEx, Amazon, DHL, etc. throughout the day. That’s a lot to track! And, since robots and drones aren’t dropping off every package just yet, there is an element of human error at play. Packages could go to the wrong houses or, in the worst-case scenario, get nabbed right out from under your nose while you’re inside minding your own business. To boot, this is all especially scary when you’re getting big-ticket items with the logos all over the box. Some things just scream “STEAL MY DYSON,” you know?

So, what can you do to avoid porch package theft? Lots of things, actually! Some of these, you may have already considered or done (like getting a video doorbell) and some may be entirely new concepts to you (like Amazon garage delivery). Let’s get into it. Here are our four top package theft prevention tips:

purchase a package drop box

If you don’t want your packages just lying out on the porch or stoop or wherever, this package drop box will be your saving grace. It comes in three different colors, blends nicely with any outdoor decor, and has a spacious interior that accomodates multiple packages. Plus, adding it to your carrier profiles as a designated drop off, is a great way to prevent stolen packages.

Install a video doorbell

With Blink Video Doorbell, you can have full conversations through your doorbell. First, it allows you to see, speak, hear, and have two-way conversations everyone who comes to your door therefore discouraging porch pirates. Second, it notifies you when someone rings your doorbell (among many other notications options, which you can turn off). Third, it pairs with Alexa. Fourth, it’s a deterrent for preventing porch pirates because they see it and know that they are being recored. And, finally, it doubles as a home security camera. We post deals on video doorbells all the time, so keep an eye on our social channels to get yours at a steal!

utilize amazon Hub lockers

As Amazon says, “Sometimes, your apartment or home isn’t the best place to ship packages.” Porch pirates love an apartment complex. We know this from experience. And, package theft is more rampant than we’d like it to be. With Amazon Lockers, you know your packages are secure. Amazon Hub Lockers are self-serve kiosks, usually located nearby—your local 7/11, the hardware store, right inside your town’s grocery store. Even better, with Lockers in 900 cities in the US, pick up your packages at a time that’s convenient for you. Note, though, that this service is for Amazon packages only. Lifesaver! Find all the details here.

try amazon garage delivery service

Now, this is the newest option, the Amazon Key|In-Garage Delivery Service, may just blow your mind. In addition to lockers, Amazon is always thinking about porch pirates and possible package theft. As a result, they recently launched the option of garage delivery. It’s called Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery and it is crazy-cool. All you have to do is add items to your cart, click “Key Delivery” at checkout, and look for the package to arrive in your garage. There’s a little more nitty-gritty to setting it up that you can find here. However, trust us: if we can set it up, you can, too! This is a fantastic option for combatting package theft. Plus, you’ll have major peace of mind knowing exactly where your packages will be dropped.

In short, you don’t have to worry about all the fun things you’re ordering going missing. We can help you prevent package theft and protect your packages, so that everything you get from us, you are sure to receive.

    We have the MyQ garage opener and they offer the garage delivery service. I am hesitant because I don’t want a stranger in my garage. Can you give me more information about it? Does the door raise all the way? I don’t understand how it works.

    I never knew about the Amazon Hub Lockers, that’s neat! I also like the idea of the package drop box. The postal service provided one in our neighborhood recently, they will leave the key in your mailbox, but for some reason, not all my packages are left in there, some still get dropped off at my door.

    the excuses of not getting a ring doorbell are getting fewer and fewer each year. haven’t had a problem with packages stolen, but would of loved a ring doorbell to notify me that the fedex person has arrived with my wine, as they require a signature and sometimes i am in the backyard and do not hear the doorbell.

    WE USE THE kEY DELIVERY AND ITS A LIFESAVER. I GET ALERTED WHEN THEY DELIVER AND THEY ARE HARDCORE ABOUT IT! IF THE GARAGE DOOR IS OPEN ALREADY OR YOU ARE STANDING THERE – THEY WON’T (USUALLY) JUST HAND YOU THE PACKAGE. THEY NEED TO SHOW PICTURE PROOF THAT THEY OPENED THE GARAGE, SET THE ITEM IN AND TAKE A PICTURE, AND CLOSE THE GARAGE. I FOUND IT FUNNY THE COUPLE TIMES I’M STANDING THERE WHILE THEY OPEN & CLOSE MY GARAGE BUT I UNDERSTOOD AND APPRECIATED THEIR DETAIL ON IT.

    We haven’t had any theft, yet, (knock on Wood) but I really would like to get the package box and the video Doorbell. I would like to know how people feel about both of these things if you have bought them.

    but I do like the garage drop off!! I will have to try it!!

    I bought both! Thieves can care less though. If they want the package, they will take it unfortunately. I’ve learned that lesson.

    One year I had ordered shoes and never knew they came, because they we put by our back door that we don’t use often. Really wish I had known these hints then. Company was awesome about it though and shipped us a new order free of charge.

    I finally got around to reading this and I wish I would have read it sooner. I haven’t had anything stolen, but the anxiety of not being home when you get the alert something has been delivered is just too much.

    Great tips! Definitely leave instructions to Amazon drivers to hide packages on specific hidden areas works too.

  • Paula

    I really wish Amazon had a vacation setting. I don’t have a garage, and don’t have an on star car for the in-car delivery. And my porch is toooo small for a package box. It would be noticeable. 🙁

      They should have that setting!!! That would be genius!

    I already had a ring doorbell and found it super helpful in regards to theft and all around trespassing on our property. However, having my husband make a container, that didn’t look like a container, was the best idea ever. It not only keeps packages out sight, because I do 98% of my shopping online, but it also protects them from the elements. I live in the rainy Nw so it’s a game changer!

    Not only can video doorbells help detract/catch thieves, but it also provides entertainment watching things in the background or watching videos of funny friends and family who put on a show while at your door!!!

    Having them at an Amazon drop off is brilliant! I didn’t think about that.
