Large Mail Package Pickup

  • Contact: SEPO Office

  • Location: Special Purpose Room (between Pavilion and Fitness Room)

  • Details:

    • For your convenience SEPO has converted the Special Purpose Room to an overflow package pick-up area due to COVID-19 issues. Previously, mail was delivered to the Office. You may access this Special Purpose Room using the keypad (https://www.sunshinecountryclub.com/keypad-codes) installed for security and concerns of package theft. This room is available to residents 24/7.  Please be sure to close the door securely as you leave.
       

    • A recent survey from the U.S. Postal Service has revealed that consumers now make 51% of their purchases online and that 26% receive a package once a week.

    • The mail carriers servicing Sunshine usually leave you a notice in your mailbox indicating there is a package for you. Please try to pick these up in a timely fashion. SEPO does not provide a designated staff member to accept and store packages. If you have experienced a mis-delivery of items, please notify Valerie in the Office.

    • Maybe a concerned resident could volunteer to pull some “Package Handler” time daily just to sort and call.
       

    • Porch Pirates:

      • Since some packages get left at your doorstep, an infuriating trend has developed. A disturbing statistic bears out that close to 40% of persons have fallen victim. The Porch Pirate targets a special area so they can maximize their reward.

      • A Ring Video Doorbell device may be a solution or ask a neighbor to look out and grab your package.   There is also a Package Guard – a nifty device with a weight sensitive stand on which the delivery drivers place your package. Should a Porch Pirate be interested and try to swipe your box, the Package Guard sounds a very loud alarm and the Bad Guy takes off.

      • Tracking Notifications – this helps you to know there has been a delivery and you can check online or by receiving e-mails or texts.
