Findings from an independent survey commissioned by CouriersPlease reveal that only one in four Aussies don’t trust their neighbours enough to let them collect their mail.
The survey of a nationally representative panel of 1021 Australians asked respondents to think about their past and present neighbours when asked what they would trust their neighbours with.
The results found that 74 per cent of respondents would trust their neighbours with responsibilities such as collecting mail and deliveries, looking after pets and plants, and holding a set of house keys while they are away.

It also found that collecting mail (chosen by 82 per cent of respondents) and allowing couriers to leave parcels with them (69 per cent of respondents) were tasks we’d most trust them with.
Surprisingly, more respondents would leave their pet with their neighbour while they were away (49 per cent of respondents) than trusting them with their home key (46 per cent of respondents). 
When asked how many neighbours they trust, 37 per cent of respondents revealed they only trust one neighbour, while a quarter trust two to three neighbours around them.
38 per cent trust their neighbours more now than they did 10 years ago.
The survey also found that Baby Boomers are most trusting of their neighbours than Millennials.
84 per cent of over 60s trust their neighbour, compared with just 64 per cent of 19-to-29-year olds.
CP CEO, Mark McGinley, says “It’s heartening to see that Aussie neighbourhoods have remained strong."
CP has an existing parcel delivery option that enables those receiving parcels to redirect their delivery to a nominated neighbour up to three houses away if they won’t be home to collect it.
