Package Receiving in Iowa City, IA
Never Miss A Delivery Again!
Have you experienced the frustration of ordering something online only to have it lost in “carrier limbo” because you weren’t home to sign for it when (UPS, FedEx, SpeeDee or DHL) tried to deliver it? We are unable to receive packages from the US Postal Service unless you rent a mailbox and provide us with information required by the USPS.
Or worse yet, did they leave a package on your porch or in the driveway, only to have it stolen by “package poachers”? The delivery companies can now leave packages without your signature, so any bad guys cruising the neighborhood can simply jump out of their car and grab your stuff. This type of theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the US today.
