Unless you plan to collect your mail from the post office, you will need a PO box at home for mail delivery. Today, some parts of the city have a pedestrian mail service, so your mailbox must meet the requirements for motorized mail delivery. In addition, an attractive mailbox will add an extra touch to your driveway or lawn.
Individual crates on a plain post
A box on a single post is normally rear mounted but can also be side mounted on a single post. Rear mounting brings the front of the box closer to the road, making it easier for the deliverer to reach the box from a vehicle or from the road. Medium or large boxes facilitate the delivery of small to medium sized packages – ideal for readers or writers who may receive books or send manuscripts in the mail. A good box should also protect your mail, including advertising circulars, from getting wet.
Double or triple boxes
Multiple boxes on a single ledge give your postman one-stop delivery and also reduce visual clutter when multiple people live in one area. Usually the size of a letter, these mailboxes are an efficient way to receive bills, letters, notices and more. Nobody likes to miss an important communication. These boxes can help by providing your postman with a convenient, attractive, and functional place to deliver your mail.
Do you always come home after dark and fiddle with your mailbox? Improve your situation with an illuminated mailbox. Some are designed to run on batteries, while others have solar powered lights. Wiring is usually not required. Combined with a robust, tamper-proof and shock-resistant box, a light can reduce postal vandalism and tampering. In summary, an attractive mailbox is important, useful and can enhance the appearance of your property. In combination with a lamp, it can also serve as burglary protection. The boxes below are zip code compliant, beautiful to look at, relatively easy to install and most importantly, extremely practical. Any of them could help you get your mail. They do not announce: “You have mail”, but take care of your paper communication.
