NW Poll

Package Theft

Wednesday, November 14, 2018by  PEMCO Insurance

According to the 2018 PEMCO Insurance Northwest Poll, even though 94 percent of respondents say they order items online, and about half say they’ve had a delivery stolen, 1 in 4 admit they don’t do anything to ensure they get their packages safely.

How about you? Do you take precautions to protect your packages?

Do you, or do other members of your household, order things online and have them delivered to your home or work?

About the PEMCO Insurance Northwest Poll
PEMCO Insurance commissioned this independent survey, conducted by FBK Research of Seattle, that asked Washington and Oregon residents questions about driving habits and attitudes toward current Northwest issues. The sample size, 600 respondents in Washington and 600 in Oregon, yields an accuracy of +/- 4.1 percent at the 95 percent confidence level. In other words, if this study were conducted 100 times, in 95 instances the data will not vary by more than the associated error range.
