Will the postal worker/courier be happy to use the Parcel Keep home parcel box?

You can be confident that postal workers and couriers will use Parcel Keep parcel boxes because they make their rounds easier, quicker, and more profitable for paid-on-delivery couriers. 

Ofcom’s rules for alternative delivery points require Royal Mail to use them (unless an exception applies).

 

What if a postal worker does not use the Parcel Keep box?

This is a rarity. Remind the Manager of your local sorting office in writing of Ofcom’s regulations. This always does the trick!

 

What if I forget the PIN code?

An emergency override key is supplied to provide quick and simple emergency access.

 

What if I lose the override key?

We have a master key. (The number for the particular master key that opens your box is on a label inside your box. A record of the master key number and your unique bar code is kept by us).

 

How do couriers/postal workers get proof of delivery’?

Couriers and postal workers can scan the unique bar code inside the door of your Parcel Keep box (or record the number). This confirms delivery, acting as a proof of delivery signature. 

 

How will I know I have a delivery?

The delivery person puts a delivered card through your letterbox to alert you. Many companies now send you digital confirmation of your delivery triggered by the delivery person’s scan/recording of the bar code on the inside of the Parcel Keep door.

 

Are Parcel Keep boxes wheelchair friendly?

Parcel Keep boxes are the only home delivery box easily accessible to wheelchair users since they fit to the wall not the ground. Hence there is no bending down to recover parcels which would be difficult for wheelchair users.
