About products and suppliers

Mailboxes are widely used in public places or set up in front of people's houses. Besides providing a place to deliver mail, they also give the visitors a good first impression. That's exactly why a family's post box should embody the home's overall aesthetic and personal characters.

Types of mailboxes

There are numerous types of modern mailboxes on the market. One of the most popular ones is wall-mounted mailboxes. Such space-saving products are widely used in dense urban neighborhoods where postmen would deliver mail door-to-door. These designs are often placed right next to the front door or far away at the entry, hence quick and easy mail retrieval coming back from work. Also, there are surface-mounted mailbox posts that are made to mount onto concrete sidewalks, streets, or sidewalks. They are suitable for areas with limited space, and they're a staple downtown and on main streets. Another popular type is post-mounted mailboxes. Mailboxes with posts are freestanding designs that are usually found near a curb. Such designs are especially popular in rural communities where mail is delivered by vehicle since they allow postmen to deliver mail without leaving their vehicles. Moreover, in-ground posts, as their name suggests, are placed directly into the ground wherever the owners desire. Most in-ground designs are sold in sets and include both a mailbox post and a decorative mailbox cover. Not to mention they look gorgeous, surrounded by flower beds.

Tips for choosing mailboxes

There are multiple things to consider when shopping for mailboxes. First of all, the weather is one of the most important factors. Mailboxes on the market come in a wide range of materials to accommodate different weather conditions. A mailbox that lasts years on end in a sunny area may rust rather fast after rain, so it's important to find the right material that suits one's certain living conditions. Secondly, customers must decide the size of their mailboxes based on how many mails they expect to receive on a regular basis. A larger mailbox will be better for a large family. Furthermore, a locked mailbox helps ensure security. It's worth mentioning that wall-mounted ones are ideal if postmen deliver mail to the front door, while post-mounted designs are better for curbside mail delivery or rural residences. Besides that, since the mailboxes chosen gives a first impression, customers should make sure they show off their personal sense of style.
