Since we already live in a world where we allow our Amazon delivery people to enter our actual homes even while we're not there, the company is now offering an option that allows packages to delivered directly into your auto.
Amazon said in-car delivery is available to Prime members in 37 USA cities, with more coming online soon, at no extra cost, using the Amazon Key app. Tens of millions of items are eligible via same-day, two-day and standard shipping.

Next, you need to add your vehicle to your Amazon Key account. Once setup is complete and the delivery location has been registered, customers can shop on Amazon.com and select the "In-Car" delivery option at checkout. It allows customers of an Opel or Chevrolet to detect auto defects, get a stolen vehicle to drive more slowly and to know where their auto is at all times, the exact thing Amazon needs. The App also notifies customers when the delivery is on its way, and the package has been delivered. How it works is the service enables to unlock the trunk of the auto to place the package in it, and close after the same is done.

So what other options are there for a service like Amazon Key that removes the uneasiness involved with letting a complete stranger into your home or auto?

As previously reported, a number of parcel carriers and auto makers have already been running in-car delivery services. The package will then be kept inside the boot of the auto and locked by the delivery agent. No special codes or keys are given to the driver. For added peace of mind, in-car delivery is backed by Amazon's Happiness Guarantee.
