How to Get an NYC Package Delivery With No Doorman
Calling all New York City residents! We have to know… How many times have you missed a package delivery because you weren’t home? How often have you wished you had a doorman to collect your deliveries for you? It’s probably happened more often than you’d like to admit. And the truth is, it’s frustrating.
No one wants to miss an important package delivery. And there certainly isn’t anyone who wants to wait around all day for USPS, FedEx or UPS to finally arrive with their package. Instead of missing your deliveries or having them left on your doorstep, where it could potentially be stolen, you need a solution! So, do you want to know how to get packages delivered in NYC with no doorman? The solution is City CoPilot and our package acceptance service.
How Does it Work?
It’s actually pretty simple! The first thing you need to do is to register for an account on our website. It won’t take long at all, so there are no excuses for not taking this first step. Once you have signed up for the service, we will provide you with an address to deliver your packages to. Then, all that’s left to do is to start placing those online orders! When you go to checkout, you just need to give them our address instead of your own for the shipping details. It really doesn’t get any easier than that!
When your package has been delivered, you just have to stop by our store and pick it up. Just come on in during our daily operating hours (we’re open seven days a week!) and one of our staff members will be there to greet you and give you any packages that were delivered for you. You’ll finally be able to rest easy knowing you have a safe and secure place to send your online orders, important documents, and anything else.
Are There Any Restrictions?
Unfortunately, we do have restrictions on what can be delivered to our storefronts. Keep in mind that they aren’t large buildings and we cannot accept any oversized packages. For that reason, we do have a size and weight limit to the packages we can accept for our customers. We ask that you do not send any major appliances, large furniture, or any other oversized packages to our locations. We consider an oversized package to be one that is over 25 pounds and/or over 2×2 cubic feet.
If by chance that we do accept your oversized package (and we don’t guarantee that we will), you must come to the location and pick it up within 24 hours. Any oversized packages that are not picked up within the first 24 hours after delivery will be charged a fee of $3 each day the package is left with us.
These restrictions are essential for us here at City CoPilot. We once had a customer leave a huge air conditioner in one of our stores. Not only did they have it delivered to our location, but that customer also left it with us for over 60 days. It wasn’t cool (pun intended).
Before you send any packages to us, be sure to double-check the weight and size on your delivery. It’s likely that most of your packages will be under the limit, so you can feel free to send all those Amazon book orders to us!
How Much Will it Cost?
We have two options for those looking for package acceptance. If you’re someone who is usually home to collect your packages, you probably don’t need a long-term solution to package acceptance. However, there might be the off-chance that you go out of town when you have a package on its way to you. You can choose our one-time package acceptance which is just $9.99. It’s an affordable way to make sure your packages arrive safe and sound.
If you get multiple packages delivered on a regular basis, that option would obviously get pretty costly. So, we offer an unlimited monthly package acceptance. This options allows you to receive no more than five package deliveries per day. As long as you aren’t going overboard with your online shopping, we’d say this is a great option for anyone looking for a permanent home for their package acceptance in New York City.
Our unlimited monthly package acceptance is priced at $19.99. There is a three-month minimum required in order to sign-up for this service. Just make sure that you are checking size and weight requirements and only shipping to our Lower East Side and Brooklyn locations and you’re all set!
Why Choose City CoPilot Package Acceptance?
Here at City CoPilot, we like to think of ourselves as your on-demand doorman. We have two locations where we currently offer package acceptance to our customers. You can sign-up for this service with our Lower East Side and Brooklyn locations. (It is not available at our Times Square location. Sorry!) All you have to do is choose the location that’s closest to you and let us worry about the rest. Since these storefronts are open from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, you can be assured that someone will be there to collect any packages. Not only that, but we promise to keep them safe!
With your packages being delivered to one of our stores, you never have to worry about missing a delivery or having a package stolen. You can have peace of mind knowing that all of your orders are safe, whether it’s goodies from Amazon or tonight’s dinner from Blue Apron.
