The season of giving is just around the corner, so you can expect to see your mail person a lot this holiday season.
Get this, more than 15 billion packages will be delivered, but naturally some people may feel a little uneasy shipping packages out. Especially with all of those porch pirates out there.
The US Postal Service does have a few helpful tips you can use to protect your packages:
- Always avoid sending cash by mail. Money orders are safer than cash and can be canceled if stolen.
- Consider an alternate shipping address. Send your packages to your work or a place you know people don’t go to often.
- Plan ahead. Ship using ‘Hold For Pickup.’ You can choose to pick your package up at the post office to avoid a theft.
