Whether you're trying to prevent porch pirates from taking your packages, establishing a convenient and secure way for your family and friends to drop off valuables for you when you're not home, or that you want a box for an alternative reason, there are several manufacturers that build and sell parcel boxes for your doorstep.
Where to buy a parcel box?
Parcel boxes can be purchased online or bought at local hardware stores. Some of our favorite options are the Architectural Mailboxes Elephantrunk, Landport's Essential Rectangle, dVault's Full Service Vault, PourchBox, LLC's Parcel Box, and the Ucella. (Here's our full list of recommendations).
We have found that online prices for parcel boxes generally tend to be cheaper. The advantage to purchasing online is cost savings, but there's also value in seeing parcel box options for yourself which is more easily done in a local hardware store.
If you choose to go the online route in purchasing your parcel box, here are a few of our recommendations with a link to where you can purchase the parcel box:
