With the experience and feedback from customers and the support from Homescapes, the Smart Parcel Box was born.
Design & Manufacture
The Smart Parcel Box has been designed to suit British customers and the delivery process, it is easy to use and can accept several parcels over the course of one day. Research has been carried out into the buying habits of UK customers along with delivery trends and the success rate of deliveries before the conceptualisation of this product. We are aware of the increasing number of missed deliveries, exposed deliveries and delivery theft and know that the Smart Parcel Box will combat these issues.
The product has been designed to blend in with your home. Its modern design, straight lines and subtle colours of grey and black or light green and grey will compliment most garden and front entrance areas. It has been engineered to be both functional and effective making the delivery and retrieval of parcels easy and straightforward.
Made from suitably treated galvanised steel the Smart Parcel Box complies with European standards and is manufactured to sustain the varying British weather conditions. It is weather resistant but we do advise that during installation you take reasonable care to ensure that it is protected against possible future heavy rain/flooding. If you are installing it into the ground, it is advised to fix it onto a concrete slab, keeping it in place and adding weight to the box.
Designed around an electronic exchange of data, the Smart Parcel Box uses a unique smart 2D barcode, located on the inside of the parcel chute. When scanned by the courier this acts as proof of delivery for your parcel.
Each box’s address, location and barcode is registered with www.smartparcelbox.com so that couriers can locate and successfully deliver to your box. It is recommended that all parcel delivery addresses include the instruction that it is to be delivered to the Smart Parcel Box to help encourage a smooth delivery.
