The holiday shopping season is a big time for delivery services. This year, USPS alone expects to deliver 420 million parcels to eager consumers during the holiday shopping season. With so much shopping and shipping going on, it’s not surprising that thieves are trying to take advantage of the situation. Because of this, it might be wise to choose pre-scheduled delivery. This delivery scenario allows you to choose the particular time at which a package is delivered, as well as the location. At Dependable Express, we are ready to address your security needs during the holiday season and set up a pre-scheduled delivery at your convenience.
Safeguarding Against Theft
This month, many package thefts have already been reported across the nation. Thieves sometimes go so far as to follow delivery trucks so that they can quickly snatch packages that have been left on doorsteps. If you’re concerned about this issue, your San Antonio delivery service can help you find some options for enhancing security. In fact, a pre-scheduled delivery is one of the best ways to ensure that your package gets delivered properly.
Another thing that you can do to ensure that you don’t lose significant value due to theft is to insure your items prior to delivery. Delivery insurance will pay you the value of your shipment in the case that it is lost, stolen or damaged.
If you are interested in customizing your delivery options, we are eager to help you at Dependable Express. Just give us a call at 210-877-6161 and let us know how we can best help you with your shipping needs.
