As the world increasingly becomes technologically driven, consumers are flocking towards online shopping as their preference of choice for purchasing goods. As a result of COVID-19 non-essential business closure, shelter-in-place orders, social distancing practices, an increase of working from home and self-isolating practices have consumers are relying more on online shopping to buy goods. The Big Boring Box™ ensures an added level of security to any home or business while also eliminating the hassle, costs, and delays of re-purchasing items due to theft.
E-commerce companies such as Amazon have revolutionized the way consumers shop. Everything from hair care products to gourmet meals for your pet can be purchased online and delivered directly to your front door. However, the convenience of online shopping can also come with an unexpected drawback - theft.
Parcels are stolen daily from people’s doorsteps, and almost always in broad daylight. In some cases, the lure of a package sitting unattended seems to be too much for otherwise honest persons while in other cases, thieves have been seen to follow delivery trucks and steal the several packages as soon as they are dropped off.
Along with the increase in thefts has come an increase in homeowners buying home security cameras to counter this threat. Yet all this seems to accomplish is to record the theft, with little recourse as the thief’s face is usually covered. Porch piracy is often underreported to the police since major online retailers often return or refund items with no questions asked if the item is stolen. The rate of package theft in the North America has been steadily increasing, with 90,000 packages disappearing daily in New York City alone in 2019. Across the United States, more than 1.7 million packages are stolen or go missing daily. 1 Some other industry data:
- Based on a survey conducted by Fedex in Canada (October 2020), one in three online shoppers say they have experienced package theft in 2020, up from one in four in 2019. It also found that three in 10 are worried about their online purchases being stolen when delivered.
Police in some areas have begun placing phantom packages to catch thieves, some with gps trackers inside. Other individuals have been creating their own booby-trap packages that contain a variety of small explosive charges like blank shotgun shells, or which spray the thieves with paint, sticky liquid or foul smelling substances. Still with the vast number of packages delivered and stolen, the potential deterrent factor is minimal.
