San Francisco Shipping Store Advises Online Shoppers to Secure their Purchases

July 11, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - San Francisco – Over the last decade, online shopping has continued to increase as more business begin to reach out their customers online. With this rise in e-commerce, a startling trend of mail theft has followed with online purchases being stolen off the front porch before the consumer even opens it. While several states have already began the process of signing new bills to help discourage this practice, many more packages are in danger of being snatched. San Francisco shipping store, P.O Plus, advises a safeguard against these “porch pirates”.

The United States Postal Service estimates that over 15 million parcels are handled on an average day. During the holiday season, those numbers more than double. Many packing and shipping companies like P.O. Plus have the solution built into their business models, private mailbox rentals.

According to a survey conducted by the Shorr Packing Corp, the Package Theft Report Survey showed 50% of Americans say they know someone who has had a package stolen from outside their home with over a third of those having experienced it firsthand. Many solutions offered online may deter a newer or skittish thief, they won’t do much to stop the experience porch pirate. Private mailbox rentals in San Francisco offer a secured environment for the package to be dropped off and stored until pickup.

Customers who have utilized this service often recommend the mailbox rental. One previous customer, Scott Gatz, wrote a review stating, “I'm a longtime customer of P.O. Plus and a huge fan. I have a mailbox here and with people stealing Amazon boxes from your steps, it's well worth it alone. The staff is friendly and attentive and are expert in all the small details of shipping. When I've had issues with Fedex or UPS, they know how to help, when I've had odd shaped things to ship, they have the packing for it, when I receive 20 packages in a week they offer a cart to help me carry it. Totally recommend PO Plus.”
