Over the past several months, we’ve had time to experiment with many different containers and have learned a lot about choosing different storage boxes.
When selecting a box, consider the following:
- How many packages do you receive on any given day and typically how large are they? How secure is your neighborhood?
- Are these more likely to be hardened criminals or casual thieves?
- How much are you willing to spend?
Keeping these suggestions in mind, here are some of our recommended boxes that we have tested with our pilot. Please remember, while we know that these work with BoxLock, these are not your only options.
Deck Boxes & Storage Benches
Keter is a leader in outdoor furniture. They make a wide range of storage containers and benches that tend to be larger. We’ve found these are your best value. These boxes will protect your packages from the elements and are sturdy enough to prevent most dash and grabs. You can see a compatible selection here.
Porch Boxes offer a nicer, more refined wood look. These boxes are sturdy and can easily be affixed to your home, porch or patio. They come in two sizes, which fit in nicely on smaller porches and front stoops. They can be painted white or come with a primer so you can easily paint them whatever color you choose. Both Porch Box sizes are available now with a BoxLock through our IndieGoGo Campaign.
Custom Built is where you’re going to get a box that really fits your needs and the style of your home. Below is an example where we’ve crafted two matching planters and had one outfitted with a lid and a hasp. You can get an idea how these were made here. Your custom options can be endless.
These are just a few options. We’ll continue to post other suggestions at getboxlock.com/boxes.
