After becoming a victim of parcel theft in 1999 ourselves we decided that we needed to create a receptacle that could receive and protect our parcels being delivered to our home while we were at work. We wanted to be able to shop online without the concern that we would be victimized again. We knew that online shopping would only increase, and boy has it ever. This past Black Friday consumers spent over $1 Billion online for the very first time according to comScore a leading digital analytics company. I would like to share with you our solution to protect yourself from being victims of parcel theft. The Elephantrunk Parcel Drop can accept the most commonly sold items online, small computers, smartphones, clothing and accessories (including shoes) and books. Its sleek design complements most architectural styles and its durable construction provides you with the protection you desire. It is affordable, locking and even has an outgoing option if you need to return an item back to a retailer. I proudly share this with you as I truly believe that all of us who shop online need to have peace of mind knowing that not only are our parcels secure, they are also not sitting in a puddle of rain of being buried under snow.
