The Package Guard Story
Having a package delivered should not leave consumers feeling fearful, anxious or worried that it will be stolen. In a marketplace where delivery is becoming the preferred choice for buying products, the consumer needs to know their purchase is protected. Package Guard is protecting the convenience of online shopping.
The Package Guard team is located in Seattle, WA. The idea was created by founder Michael Grabham, after a box of coats for his non profit, Survive the Streets, was stolen from his front porch, and the reason why we give $1 to Survive the Streets for each Package Guard that is sold. He started looking for ways to protect packages and found no simple solution. Over the last two years he has created what is now known as the Package Guard (patent pending). It is the number one way to protect your packages from package theft.
We started down this path to stop people from committing one of today’s easiest crimes. Almost anyone can walk onto your front porch and pick up a package with no deterrent. Cameras only show you it happened, they do nothing to alarm, notify, or make a thief think twice about stealing your packages. Package Guard has several mechanisms in place to help stop package theft.
Our mission is simple, “Reduce crime in neighborhoods by stopping people from stealing items from your porch.”
