A recent report on insurancequotes.com says that 23 million Americans have had packages, that were delivered to their houses, stolen from their homes.  

This is something to keep in mind this holiday season, as many people have begun to by products online that are shipped out to their homes.

Because thieves seem to be willing to take the risk of slinking up to your doorstep and snagging whatever gifts lie inside the freshly delivered packages, it might be a good idea to have items purchased online sent to your work.

Most homeowners and renters insurance policies tend to cover these stolen packages but it would also be a good idea to check with your provider for specifics.

The report also talks about avoiding guest injuries and house damage ove the holidays.
