For expensive items, I get stuffed delivered to me at the office.
This is probably the best practical option, provided you have someone to sign for things at the office. I used to do this with my wife’s workplace, but she has been working from home since the VID. Other downside for that was that there was no way I could pretend it wasn’t new.

The only time I preemptively check the mail is when I've received a delivery notification. I can feel my wife's eyes rolling at me.

The big wildcard, is the drivers. I get a LOT of deliveries.
I am gated, and have a camera on the gate that records.
There is a phone system on the gate to call.
Every so often I'll get the notification: "couldn't access property" with an approximate time stamp.
I'll go to the video. Sometimes, they lie and never came to the gate, maybe they were slammed. Other times, I'll watch them walk to the gate, try the knob, and then immediately walk away.

I used to have everything shipped to my office, because it would be signed for and left in the mail room with my last name in sharpie on the side of the box. Having things shipped to my home is definitely less secure.

Except for the weekends, there's always someone at the office during normal work hours.

out of curiosity, how big is your office? My company banned people from shipping stuff to work because it got too much for the mail guys to deal with. I can see it working for smaller offices but with thousands of employees in one building for a group of 5? guys working the mail room, it wouldnt work out well.

Office is several hundred people with a large warehouse attached to it with another several hundred operations people in the warehouse. I don't think warehouse people are really getting deliveries to the office though.

Could anyone recommend a good Type II leather jacket that is "longer" than a traditional type II? in the market for one!

Arent most of you folks home these days? I am working from home so shipping home is fine, I haven't bought anything too pricey so nothing to steal except amazon purchases...
Thieves follow trucks and hit within minutes of delivery. If you aren’t aware of the delivery because the driver didn’t have you sign, then you’re SOL.
