What to do about getting the keys after closing?

Question Details: We are purchasing a house and have a closing on 6th but the sellers want to occupy the house until 2 days after closing. This was agreed upon but now the sellers say they want to move out on 11th. However, we will be out of town for 10 days and not available to collect the keys on 11th. What are our options in this scenario. Is it safe for seller to handover keys to listing agent and we collect it once we are back in town?
