While many people are on vacation this summer, thieves will be at work in their neighborhoods, looking for quick and easy targets such as vulnerable mailboxes. MailboxWorks.com offers many great locking mailbox options for keeping mail and packages safe over the busy summer months.
Before heading out the door for vacation this summer, millions of home owners will be taking steps to protect their property, but may overlook one of the most serious areas of vulnerability – their mailboxes. Mail theft is a growing problem, and represents much more than property loss. More and more thieves are figuring out how to steal the identities of hard working people, who may not notice stolen mail as quickly as a stolen purse or wallet. This danger increases the longer mail is left in a mailbox, unchecked and unprotected.
While some travelers employ temporary measures such as imposing on friends to collect mail, or having mail held at the post office, these options can be both risky and inconvenient. A security mailbox provides a permanent solution that will continue to be beneficial, long after the vacation is over. MailboxWorks.com makes finding security mailbox solutions easy with a broad selection of styles and sizes, including models that accommodate both envelopes and packages.
“Keeping mail secure is a great way to protect your family name from identity theft and your family’s mail order purchases from common thieves,” according to Mark Fitzpatrick, President of MailboxWorks.com, one of the nation’s leaders in online sales of residential mailboxes and commercial mailboxes. While Mark’s firm sells all types of mailboxes, he noted that many customers are now upgrading to locking and security mailboxes. “The purchase of a secure, locking mailbox is a one-time investment,” Mark adds, “and it makes a lot more sense to most folks than subscribing to an identity protection service that bills you monthly for a service that only matters if your mail gets stolen.”
Owning a locking mailbox provides the benefit of quick and convenient access to mail, as well as permanent investment, rather than a monthly bill from a mail service provider. MailboxWorks.com has many affordable options that will easily pay for themselves when compared to the on-going cost of off property mail security options.
“Any time is a good time to invest in a security mailbox, but summer is an especially good time to take action, before family trips,” says Mark.
