Parcel Delivery Boxes FAQ
What is the difference between the three different parcel boxes?
The large drop box is the original Asgard parcel box. This heavy duty unit was originally designed for use by medical reps/doctors for leaving patient samples in. This unit has two tough push in, locking points, providing a very good level of security. This unit bolts to the ground with the supplied fixing kit. A very popular unit with businesses due to the heavy duty spring hinges and extra tough construction.
The medium parcel delivery box, has been designed for the domestic/home market. Again this is a tough weatherproof unit that bolts to the ground, this time secured by a single, central lock. With an easy to operate thumb turn lock. This is a lighter unit than the large version, just because in an domestic/home environment there is less chance of damage. i.e. no forklifts in the area, or vans backing in and out.
The mini parcel delivery box, is as been designed for the domestic/home market. Again this is a tough weatherproof unit that bolts to the ground, however, this compact unit can also fix to the wall. As with the medium parcel box this unit is secured by a single , high quality, central lock. With an easy to operate thumb turn lock.
Q: Which is the best parcel delivery box for me?
A:This really depends on your anticipated use. We usually catagorise them as follows.
Mini parcel box: suitable for small package's general package size: 350mm x 450mm. Favoured by regular Amazon book type customers.
Medium parcel box: regular deliveries, general package size: 500mm x 400mm, popular with most general users.
Large parcel box: large deliveries, general package size: 510mm x 430mm, most popular with business users.
Q: Why do the parcel boxes bolt to the floor and why do I have to bolt them down?
A: They bolt to the ground as a security measure. These boxes have good quality locking and are quite heavy, but there is nothing stopping a thief picking up the parcel box and carrying them away to a discreet location, to have more time to try and break in. So, fixing bolts inside each unit should stop that.
