* With increases in online shopping, mailbox theft has seen an increase as well
* These mailboxes are all securely locked to keep your mail safe
* Made of reinforced steel, they withstand the elements as well
With the explosion of online shopping, your mail is now worth much more than a couple of coupons. Amazon recently teamed up with the New Jersey police department and is using dummy boxes with GPS tracking devices to catch package thieves, as well as utilizing door cameras, to help combat this issue. As you may count yourself among the 26 million Americans who have had a package stolen this holiday season, it could be time to invest in a more secure mailbox.
These mailboxes are not only made of durable, reinforced steel, but they feature slanted delivery chutes that drop your items into the locked container below. So rather than hassle with securing a refund for a stolen package, or worse, missing financial documents, invest in one of the secure boxes below.
