Our client has visual and hearing problems and cannot drive. He often orders stuff on the internet. He found that if he was not home at delivery, Australia Post left a “Collect at Post Office” notice. Collecting from the Post Office is very difficult for the client.

He asked Tadvic to make a secure drop box about 600mm x 600mmm x 1800mm high that could be fixed near his front door.

Tadvic determined that a used refrigerator was about the right size and provided some insulation.

The fridge was fitted with a push and lock mechanism (that could be opened from the inside if someone climbed into the fridge). Directions are left for the courier to place the item in the drop box and close the door. It is then locked and only the client can open it from the outside.
