Mayo Hardware, the leading supplier of outdoor lifestyle and security products, is excited to launch Australia’s first, high security mail box for residential properties. The Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ will hit the shelves nationwide in Bunnings Warehouse stores from December 2013.
Designed and patented in Australia, this revolutionary box will be suitable for a wide variety of home deliveries including bulky items such as cases of wine. The Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ has been designed and scaled around Australia Post’s standard parcel boxes, ensuring common packages can be successfully delivered.
National Marketing Manager at Mayo Hardware, John Thomas, says The Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ will change the way packages are delivered.
“The Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ will offer the ultimate convenience in home delivery and will eliminate customer frustration and disappointment associated with failed mail deliveries. This guarantees online purchases are delivered directly to recipients, hassle free. The rise in online shopping, coupled with our busy lifestyles, has made receiving parcels an increasingly painstaking process.
“More and more people find themselves setting aside time to collect their parcels or sending their online purchases to their workplace. The Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ is designed to save online shoppers’ time and money by ensuring all packages are delivered safely and securely to residential properties,” says Thomas.
Simple yet modern in design, the Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ is available in three different colours: white, charcoal and sand. Optional mailboxes are available which can be attached to the parcel delivery box to accommodate both parcels and regular mail.
Each of the three mailbox designs reflect subtle features that have been architecturally designed, ensuring there is a Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ suitable for every home. The colours selected also match common COLORBOND® colours used in homes.
Designed to be placed at the front door or fence line of your home, the Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ uses My-Locate™ technology which sends an email or SMS text message to the owner when a delivery is made by participating couriers.
The Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ is labelled with a unique 2D scannable barcode code fixed to the parcel chute. This code will be registered to each resident and their unique address. Courier companies can register their drivers Personal Digital Assistant devices (PDA), allowing them to scan the code on delivery to confirm the address and gain access to their locked parcel door. Exclusive to the Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™, this system will provide courier companies with a proof of delivery and avoid the need for multiple delivery attempts, which will ultimately save businesses a substantial amount of time and money.
“For added security, the owner of the Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ can also periodically update their combination lock code online. We believe that the Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ will not only offer the ultimate convenience to customers but will also cut down on mail theft,” says Thomas.
With Fastway Couriers already on board, Thomas explains the Pakman Parcel Delivery Box™ system will be available to all national parcel delivery operators.
