The convenience and popularity of online shopping and home delivery has created a growing problem for building occupants wanting parcels delivered to their buildings.
The most common problem occupants face is eagerly awaiting parcels at home only to find a delivery person had been and gone without buzzing their apartment. They then face lengthy queues at the post office or couriers office to collect their parcels.
The parcel delivery problem has also turned on-site managers offices and foyers into de-facto receiving centres as they grapple with recording packages, tracking residents down to pick them up and finding places to store the parcels.
Now building occupants can have all of their parcels delivered to their own parcel locker enabling them to collect at a time that suits them—safely, securely and freeing them up to do the things they like to do.
My Parcel Locker provides a proven delivery solution for apartment and commercial buildings that addresses the needs of time poor people.
My Parcel Locker offers Australian-made, custom-built parcel locker solutions to suit any building. The process is simple—the courier enters the delivery into the secure parcel locker and a message is automatically sent to the receiver telling them they have a parcel for collection, along with a QR code that they scan to retrieve their parcel.
All movements are electronically logged, a measure developed in conjunction with Australia Post and other major courier companies. My Parcel Locker’s in-house IT developers have placed so much emphasis on cyber-security that the US Embassy in Canberra is among their clients.
Installing a secure parcel locker system solves all parcel delivery problems and arms your project sales and rental teams with an edge that separates your building from the competition.
My Parcel Locker offers a Media Solution to assist in increasing off-the-plan sales.
