Did porch pirates find you’re your packages when you were not at home? I bet that if they did not; that there is a very good chance that they found your neighbors packages even while you were home. There is a company that is a delivery service for those not at home it is called Hub-Box. So how does Hub-Box work? Here is what they say:
HubBox is a Click & Collect service that has pulled together a network of thousands of convenience stores, pharmacies, dry cleaners and other local retailers in the U.K. The idea is that when you shop online, instead of having parcels delivered to your empty home, they can be dropped off at a shop on your local High Street, ready for you to pick up at a time that is convenient for you.
The clever thing about HubBox is that it can be used at any online retailer. E-commerce sites do have the option to plug it into their checkout process, but customers can also sign up for their own account and then just use their HubBox ID in the delivery details when they complete a purchase.
The way to use it is that when you are ordering online, just enter your HubBox ID instead of your last name, and the Collect Point Address instead of your home address. From there, Hub Box should be able to work with your local Collect Point, and let you go and grab it.
