With many of us taking advantage of flexible work arrangements, the convenience, safety and security benefits of contactless delivery have never been more important. If you’re moving between work, school and home, Chamberlain’s myQ tech is designed to give you control over your deliveries, and offer contactless options directly to the garage.
Last year, as Kiwis headed home to work remotely, their parcels and deliveries followed them. Approximately 200 parcels a minute went through the NZ Post network in the first two weeks of alert level three in New Zealand – a 105 per cent increase in online shopping during that time. NZ Post also says the online spend continues to be up 30 per cent on this time last year.
If you’ve been a victim of a porch pirate or a grocery delivery left in the sun, this is for you! Here are a few ways that we see contactless deliveries being used in the future, and how Chamberlain’s myQ technology can help.
We all know the feeling – you’re in the middle of a very important Zoom call or trying to get the kids out the door… and then the doorbell rings. With Chamberlain’s myQ technology, you can let the courier into your garage from your couch, WFH office, car or wherever you are!
Simply ask in the delivery instructions for your driver to call or text when they arrive. Open the door via the myQ App for them to leave the parcel, close the door when they leave, and have your parcels safe in the garage when you get home.
Stuff.nz reported a surge in parcel thefts in December last year, with figures released by NZ Post under the Official Information Act revealing that there were 49 reports of parcels confirmed as missing after delivery in the last 12 months. However, that figure could be the tip of the iceberg, as senders (or receivers) don’t always report a missing parcel, in some cases, it is not clear if any item has been stolen after delivery or miss-delivered.
Chamberlain’s myQ tech gives you peace of mind that your parcels can be securely delivered to your garage. You can make sure that any groceries will be safe from the elements, and any expensive purchases won’t be stolen!
With the global COVID-19 crisis, it’s important to consider the health of you and your family when accepting deliveries. Whether it’s a grocery shop, pizza delivery or Amazon package, having your items placed in the garage gives you peace of mind that your parcels are secure, and that your family is safe, without needing to interact with anyone and remaining distanced.
