Stolen Packages phone numbers

Stolen Packages phone numbers

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -- Thefts of packages delivered at home have become a real problem for online shoppers around the country.

According to data collected by Parcel Pending, a smart delivery locker company, 23 million Americans have had a package stolen from their front porch or mailbox.

For instance, more than 1 billion packages were in transit for the 2016 holiday season between Black Friday and Christmas Day. Since then, online retailers have reported continuous increases in volume of purchases and shipments.

Within the last 12 months alone, 11 million homeowners have had a package stolen, according to research data collected by Edelman Intelligence for August Home. 

One step you can take when shopping on Amazon is to choose delivery using their in-home or in-car delivery service using "Amazon Key Smart." Alternatively, you can ship your purchases to one of Amazon's "Hub Locker" locations.

FedEx offers delivery to any of the Walgreens drug store locations, or available local FedEx Stores.

UPS customers can opt to have their package held at a UPS facility for collection.

Alternatively, if available, shoppers can choose to have purchases shipped to your place of work.

If none of these are viable options for you, and a package does get stolen, you should immediately contact customer service for Amazon, ebay, or the shipping service you use: 

  • Amazon:1-888-280-4331
  • ebay: 1-866-961-9253
  • FedEx: 1-800-463-3339
  • UPS: 1-800-742-5877
  • US Postal Service: 1-800-275-8777
