Beverly Oaks Association: Package center information
PACKAGE DELIVERY CENTER
The package delivery center opened on November 4, 2017 as centralized and secure place to receive and send mail and packages. The center is behind the unmarked middle garage door at 2023 Wilshire. For the best security, it is important that all owners close the door after using the center.
Services Currently the US Postal Service is delivering and picking up mail and packages at the center.
In 2019, additional security will be added so that residents may have UPS, FedEx, Amazon, and DHL deliveries received at the center.
Door pass codes Access is via the keypads located by the entry door. New residents can request access codes by contacting the association (see "Contact Us" in the left margin menu)
Mailbox keys: The keys and locks are managed by the Plymouth Park Post Office. You will need proof of residence (e.g., drivers licence, bill of sale, rental lease, water bill, etc.) to obtain a key.

Nationally, 84% of homeowners shop online and 20% buy items weekly and it is a growing trend. A package tracking and notification system would electronically check-in an item, safely secure the package and automatically notify the recipient via text and email that their package is in the locker. A package tracking and notification system can be leased with service is provided by the supplier - it would not necessarily be a capital expense to the Association.
The current manufacturers include Package Concierge, Luxer One, Buffer Box, and Amazon Hub. Click photo to enlarge
