Shipper Leaving BOXes on your Front Door Step!

Good day everyone!

I have rather grim news about one purchase I made here in the Classifieds under the Electric Airplane Section. Not that the Seller did not ship the item or any other issue with the transaction but, rather that we (Seller and Buyer) did not make sure a signature request for the item was made to force the Carrier to keep the BOX should no one was home.

In my case, someone was home, however, a young family member did not open the door as they were alone and did not feel safe to do so and instead waited for another family member to come home and retrieve the BOX from the front door area.

Needless to say, a stranger (Thief) came by and STOLE the item so, please make sure if it is a good size BOX then, ask for Signature Request!!!!

I really did not care about the $$$ just that this model is very rare and out-of-production!!!

I have boxes, large and small, consistently left at my front door. Never had any problem. One of the (many) advantages of country living!

After returning from a recent vacation I found an airplane part box at the door that had been there for nearly a week. I probably should stop bragging as this could change anytime.

Sry to hear you had a problem.

If there are any suspicions, you could have items shipped to a friend or neighbor who is always available, or to where you work, if that is possible.

Gosh, if young family members find it un-wise to open your front door when home alone... well, you might want to relocate!!! Yikes!
I'm real sorry to hear that part!
Best

I thought you were going to say the box got soaked in a deluge or something. I've never had one stolen either but have had them left in the elements because they were too lazy to walk around to my front porch.

BTW I buy and sell a lot but never get a signature request unless the buyer asks for it and agrees to pay the difference. I use fedex for planes and I trust them to get it there and cover it if its lost.
