4 Tips to Plan for Packages

4 Tips to Plan for Packages

Between available floor or outdoor space, accessibility requirements, and local USPS rules, there’s plenty to consider when planning a mail area for postal delivery. Throw in package management on top of that and it can seem overwhelming. Never fear. We’ve got four simple tips to help you plan for packages like a pro in your centralized mailbox installation design.

1. Provide one package locker for every six mailboxes (1:6)

The USPS requires that you include one package locker for every 10 mailboxes. So, why do we suggest one in six? Simple: the rise of online shopping has created—and continues to create—huge growth in shipping. To ensure adequate space for packages in your centralized mailbox installation now and into the future, we recommend one in six.

Plus, with spikes during certain times of the year like the holiday season, more package lockers mean less hassle for residents, property management personnel, and delivery staff.

2. Provide various package locker sizes

Packages come in all shapes and sizes, but not every mail area has a ton of room to spare. By mixing up the package compartment sizes, you can maximize your use of space, while still accommodating various package sizes.

Standard Florence package lockers are designed to fit 95% of USPS Priority Mail package sizes!

3. Know your options

When it comes to package management, there are several solutions available.

  • Stand-alone parcel lockers: These units complement Standard-4C mailboxes and Cluster Box Unit mailboxes, both of which are current USPS-specified cluster mailboxes.
  • Built-in parcel lockers: STD-4C and CBU mailboxes come with convenient built-in parcel lockers for more seamless integration.

If you’re not sure which would work best with your project, contact an Authorized Florence Dealer for help!

4. Know the benefits

Sure, it’s nice if a letter carrier delivers a package directly to your door. But what if you work? Or what if you’re out running errands when they come?

Parcel lockers provide a secure place for packages when you’re not available, and can save you a trip to the Post Office®. Florence’s key-trapping lock and rugged construction protect packages from theft, as well as the elements. After all, who wants to come home to a package drenched from rain or, worse, missing entirely? Not us!
