- Ask a neighbor to watch your home for the delivery of holiday packages and to retrieve the packages until you arrive home.

- Consider an alternate destination. Your packages can be delivered to work, family, or friends. Hack packages delivered where someone can accept them, or require a signature.

- Instruct the delivery company. Find a non visible place at your home and leave detailed instructions where they should hide the package.

- Track your expected holiday packages. Residents can receive a text message when their package is delivered. This will help eliminate your package from sitting outside for a long period of time.

- Require a signature so your item won’t be left unattended. If this is inconvenient, you can have the package redelivered or you can pick it up at the local station.

- Have a security camera on your front porch so if a theft occurs, you have proof for insurance purposes and can try to find the burglar.

- Customize your deliveries. You change the time of your delivery so you will be home from work. They can also deliver during late evening hours during the holidays.
