When shipping to residential address, if the drop off location is in a 'safe' area, then the courier driver will leave the parcel at your doorstep.

Your parcel must be boxed and well packaged. This will reduce the risk of damage to any item during transit or any associated automated distribution process.
Please be aware the item is not taken by hand from collection to destination and will visit many sorted facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A to B safely.

The city of Detroit is a major international economic powerhouse, having traditionally been the home of the US automotive industry and still boasting the traditional 'Big Three' car companies, General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. Looking to the future, the car manufacturers have been investing heavily in alternative fuel technology, such as biodiesel and lithium-ion batteries, and this forward looking stance has been reflected in the rest of the region, with local firms making breakthroughs in the fields of biotechnology and nanotechnology, and in the good local employment prospects. This prosperity and entrepreneurial spirit has certainly resulted in a rise in demand for Detroit package delivery.
