I must say, leaving a box at someone's front door on a busy city street doesn't sound like a good system.
What about the option to have a package shipped to your work address? I will do this sometimes and the receptionist holds my package until I see her.
I think a flat package instead of a box would be less likely to be stolen. ie, anything can be in a box, but a flat package does not look as "valuable".
I am under the impression that UPS in the US is a decent service. Here, they are quite expensive compared to the post office. Too bad we didn't have just 1 system that was really good instead of several competing systems that don't have enough money to offer a good service.

Living in a detached house with an unshared delivery point has got to be better than a shared situation. Generally speaking, I count my blessings on package-delivery here :->. Not that it's exactly perfect ... but what is these daze?
Great, thanks! As David has already noted, boxes come free. And he makes a valid point that I expect pretty much applies to all package services ... unless you pay for a high(er) grade of service (e.g., sign-for-receipt). Once they get it to the delivery point "all bets are off". Even getting them to honor leave-at-back-door, or deliver-between-the-hours-of, that they advertise seems to be ... unlikely (or at least that's the way it's been here).One advantage to USPS is that you usually have same the same delivery-person (your normal route carrier) and can develop a bit of an understanding (which I have, here). With the other services, it always seems to be a different person (when I'm around to catch-em-at-it) so ...
