If you’re ordering from Amazon, your garage door and garage door opener can play a significant role in keeping your parcels and deliveries secure, even when you’re not home. The team at Consolidated Garage Doors put together this Amazon garage delivery FAQ to help you decide how to accept packages safely at your home.
How Does Amazon Garage Delivery Work?
Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery is a service provided by Amazon that allows shipping personnel to place your packages inside your garage. When you indicate you want this service, your Amazon delivery driver will notify you when they are arriving and let you watch the delivery remotely if you wish.
With this service, the delivery driver will unlock your garage door using a scanner, place your delivery inside and send you a notification letting you know you can lock your door. It’s easiest to use Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery with a modern garage door opener with remote controls and added safety features. A solution such as a LiftMaster myQ garage door opener from Consolidated Garage Doors makes setting up Amazon garage delivery simple.
