Parcel Safe is an innovative, yet simple solution to a very common problem. How many times have you ordered something and instead of it being delivered to your door you find a 'sorry we missed you' card on your doormat? With Parcel Safe you can be safe in the knowledge that any items you´ve ordered are safe, secure and waiting for you on your return home, meaning no more inconvenient trips to the local sorting depot!
Parcel Safe uses an 'Easy Lock' system. Once any parcels are deposited, the delivery person simply twists the lock to safely secure the contents. For added piece of mind the lock has approx. 1,000 different combinations and a car style ignition cover to prevent dirt entering the lock mechanism.
Parcel Safe is quick and easy to install, each one comes with just about everything you´ll need including an Easy Fit template, screws, wall plugs and even a masonry drill bit.
Once mounted on an exterior wall of your home, a delivery person can deposit any packages too large for your letterbox into Parcel Safe and secure the lid using the Easy Fit function. On your return simply unlock Parcel Safe with the keys provided and your parcel is waiting!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for me..! 4 Oct 2007
I've had one for about six months now, and it's saved me multiple trips to the depot. The two people who complained about snags - well, yes, if you need to give a signature, you've had it, and yes, if you get two different parcels from two different carriers, you'll still miss one of them. (But at least you got one! before you had this, you would have had two trips to two separate depots.) To those I'll add a third - the delivery person who is too thick to see this huge great box and STILL puts a card through the door - I've had one of those too.
No solution is going to be perfect. But it helps a lot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why didn't someone think of this before? 1 Nov 2007
I've had this on my wall for a few weeks now and so far I am very impressed, no more traipsing up the Royal Mail office and less chance of having to wait till the weekend then sitting around the house for hours waiting for redeliveries. Very impressed at the kit that comes with the box, absolutely everything you need to attach it to the wall, bar the electric drill, obviously. A second person to assist with actually putting it on the wall is to be recommended, but once the bolts are tightened it seems very solid and secure. Of course, as someone mentioned, it is a one use per day facility, so if you do get a second delivery then the box will be locked, but I can't believe many people get regular multiple deliveries, and if you do, well, buy another box! As an opposite to the problem some people mention of their delivery people ignoring the box, my postman got so carried away the other day that he put a small packet in it that would very easily have gone through the letterbox - not a problem as long as he doesn't do it on a day when I get a big parcel later on...maybe I should put a flowchart on the door - Will item fit through letterbox? If yes, put it through, if no then see parcel safe. Overall, a very useful piece of kit for all people who, like me, prefer to do most of their shopping online and by mail order but who are out at work all day. The only problem I have encountered is that none of my parcel carriers will accept the number on the box in place of a signature, which is a bit of a pain - had an argument with a delivery chap the other day about it - but that is not the fault of the box itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin. 20 Sep 2007
I installed my parcel safe last night and was really impressed.
Its a good quality steel box... its not Fort Knox but you'd need a pair of bolt cutters or a very sturdy crowbar to break into it. Its very easy to install & the template makes positioning the holes very simple. Getting a second person to support it when you fasten the bolts is to be recommended.
Unusually for most 'self install' items it comes with a very good quality 10mm masonry drill bit and a sturdy spanner for fixing the bolts. All you need is a decent power drill and a bit of wall- it took me 15 minutes start to finish to mount.
In its first week one courier has left a parcel in it and used the 6 digit number for a signature and a couple of royal mail parcels have been dropped in it too. I suspect positioning is important- mine is just to the left of my front door and I used ALL the stickers to direct the postman too it... frankly if you mount it round the side of your house the chances of it being used will go right down. The fact that some delivery drivers are too lazy to use it isn't the fault of the product which is well thought out. Most couriers have a contact number/redelivery option and if you specify that you want your parcel dropped in the safe then they probably will oblige.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have EShopper Aid 25 Sep 2007
By Ken Riby
I hate getting the cards saying 'Sorry we missed you'and having to wait until the weekend to get my parcels and then having to stand in a queue in the rain and cold.Since getting my Parcel Safe I've only had one delivery that was too big for it. So far it has saved me 12 trips so I reckon it has just about paid for itself already.
A really useful product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Convenient & Environmentally Friendly 20 Sep 2007
What a fantastic idea! The parcel safe arrived quickly with everything I needed to set it up (apart from the drill, which is understandable I guess!), I found that a lot of thought had gone into the product, which included a stencil on the back of the cardboard box which guides you as to where you need to put the holes in the wall.
It was quick and easy to set up and looks good too. I love the fact that it is green (in both senses of the word) as the postman or couriers don't need to make a second delivery to your house if you aren't in, and / or you don't have to go down to the depot which can be really frustrating and kind of defeats the purpose when you order over the internet.
It's been a real time saver, I don't have to worry about being in the house waiting for a delivery that might or might not come :)
Very pleased with the purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, but ... 16 Sep 2008
By Book fan
Nothing wrong with the product but I'm having immense difficulty in getting Parcelforce and Royal Mail staff to use it at all. The best I've managed so far is the parcel being placed in the box and the box not being secured with the lock with no notification put through the door. I'm still having to make trips to the local post depot. The box is on the front of the house and the stickers supplied are in the porch window.
