With more folks shopping online, the number of home deliveries is climbing and many apartment communities are scrambling to keep up with the plethora of packages arriving on their doorsteps.

Some consider these packages an operational challenge while others see them as a marketing opportunity. Either way, they’re a great discussion topic— and the subject of our latest #AptChat.

Here are the chat highlights. (Hit the links to jump straight to a specific question.)

What’s your take? Is the increase in package deliveries having a significant impact on your property operations?

What do you think is the “right” way to address more and more packages arriving at your property? How are you training for it?

Have you looked into package locker systems? Are there other innovative solutions that you’ve seen to handle deliveries?

If you’re still accepting deliveries for residents, is this a huge marketing opportunity for you? Are you updating messaging?

Our next #AptChat will be Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 12 pm Eastern. In the meantime, be sure to sign up for #AptChat updates to get these recaps and more delivered straight to your inbox!
