The Elephantrunk® Keeps Parcel Deliveries from Being Missed or Going Missing

Until it happens to you, no one thinks that someone would be brazen enough to steal a parcel right off your front porch

“1 in 5 Americans reported being victims of porch piracy amid the coronavirus crisis…and despite the increase in package theft, 33% of consumers have taken no action to prevent package thefts within the past year,” according to a survey published by by LendingTree. “Until it happens to you, no one thinks that someone would be brazen enough to steal a parcel right off your front porch,” said Vanessa Troyer, Director of Global Branding and Innovation at Gibraltar Industries. “As online shopping rates continue to soar, consumers should be seeking methods to ensure parcels are protected after delivery.”

As America’s leading brand of premium mailboxes, Architectural Mailboxes can help consumers keep parcels safe this holiday season with its revolutionary elephantrunk. As the first full-service parcel drop that receives and sends packages from a consumer’s front porch or apartment stoop, the elephantrunk is the perfect solution to provide convenient and secure home package shipment and delivery.

Beyond providing security, the elephantrunk solves major home package delivery issues as well. Elephantrunk owners avoid the frustration of failed delivery attempts that can lead to packages being returned to sender. No time is wasted waiting for package deliveries, dropping packages for shipment, or collecting packages from public storage lockers. Additionally, the elephantrunk prevents packages from being damaged during inclement weather.

Stylish, chic, and functional, the elephantrunk is easy to use and has garnered acceptance by all major delivery companies. For deliveries, parcel employees simply drop the parcel into the locked and anchor-secured elephantrunk. For pick-ups and returns, the elephantrunk comes equipped with an outgoing partition; the driver simply opens the top compartment and removes the item to be shipped. Architectural Mailboxes is looking to the future, as well. Each elephantrunk comes with a built-in barcode for future scanning integration with major parcel shipping companies that will allow users to never sign for a package again.


  • Large locking storage compartment that can receive multiple parcel deliveries
