And given the unscrupulous practices of some Internet mailbox stores, your choice of where to buy mailboxes online really matters.
So, before you buy a mailbox online, consider these three reasons why The MailboxWorks should be the store you trust when it comes to buying commercial mailboxes or residential mailboxes.
- We are mailbox experts
- We have a brick and mortar mailbox store with real inventory
- We stay up-to-date with changing USPS mailbox regulations
Here’s a brief overview of these three very important reasons for making The MailboxWorks your preferred online mailbox store.
The MailboxWorks’ sales representatives are North America’s foremost mailbox experts.
Many competing fly-by-night online mailbox stores operate online only. They operate from kitchen countertops or simply contract all their online mailbox orders to a call center. When you call, the call center personnel are not mailbox experts and do not know the right questions to ask to make sure you are buying the best residential mailbox for your home or the best commercial mailbox for your business. They simply want you to give them a product number so they can enter it into their order-placement software and have the mailbox drop-shipped to your location.
These online-only mailbox stores never actually see the mailboxes they sell to you. They simply do not have a showroom, which means their “representatives” have never physically seen or touched the mailboxes they are trying to sell you online. If they don’t ask you questions, or are unable to answer any of your questions about their mailboxes for sale, this is a clear sign that they don’t have the product expertise to help you buy the best mailbox for your needs.
You Can Talk to A Mailbox Expert – At The MailboxWorks, every question – whether online, on the phone or in person at our showroom – every question is answered by one of North America’s top experts in commercial and residential mailbox sales. And if the experts at The MailboxWorks need to physically inspect mailboxes to answer your questions, they can simply walk out onto the showroom floor and touch the mailbox model you’re inquiring about.
If you are a developer, our commercial mailbox experts can provide you with expert guidance and specifications on all our commercial mailboxes including:
- Cluster mailboxes (CBU mailboxes)
- Horizontal mailboxes
- Drop boxes
- Mailbox shelters
- And much more
If you are looking for mailboxes for an entire homeowner’s association or simply needing to buy a wall mount mailbox or buy a mailbox and post for your own home, we’ll provide you with the top-notch, expert guidance you’ll need to select and buy the perfect residential mailbox online.
The MailboxWorks is an actual physical store with real commercial and residential mailbox inventory.
Practically all online-only mailbox stores “drop ships” all the residential and commercial mailboxes they sell. Drop shipping is when the mailboxes you have purchased are not shipped from the company you purchase it from but rather from a third-party you’ve never met.
Drop shipping is not always an indication of a poor mailbox store or vendor. It is not uncommon for most online mailbox stores to drop ship some of their mailboxes in order to help customers like you save on shipping costs.
However, online mailbox stores that only drop ship all their mailboxes for sale, actually have no physical products on hand and never really have a feel for, or have the knowledge about, what they’re selling. One day they could be selling mailboxes and the next day they could be selling stuffed animal toys. All they are interested in is your cash.
Before you buy mailboxes from an online mailbox store, check to see if they list their physical address on their website or if there’s any evidence of an actual showroom where they display their commercial and residential mailboxes. Don’t let yourself be fooled by online mailbox stores that try to imitate a real store. Simply look for an address you can Google.
A Real Store with Real Mailbox Inventory – Experienced mailbox suppliers and distributors like The MailboxWorks, are quite different.
You can actually drop by and shop The MailboxWorks’ mailbox showroom located in Naperville, Illinois (a Chicago suburb) and not only experience our mailboxes in person but also interact with our top-notch customer service experts.
And our residential and commercial mailbox showroom is not only an advantage for buyers who can visit us in person, it also helps our customer service experts become familiar with all the features and benefits of the mailboxes we sell.
And when the savings makes sense to you, we can always save you the most money by shipping your order from a strategically located warehouse.
The MailboxWorks stays abreast of USPS regulations concerning residential and commercial mailboxes.
Online-only stores simply sell product numbers; they have no idea of whether or not the Postal Service (USPS) will approve of the mailboxes your buy.
For example, if you are purchasing commercial mailboxes, your mailbox supplier should inform you whether or not this significant purchase will comply with USPS requirements or whether it will be considered a private mail delivery system that your postal carrier will refuse to deliver to.
Since The MailboxWorks is the continent’s leading retailer of residential mailboxes and commercial mailboxes, we stay on top of the ever-changing postal regulations.
We are always here to assist you when you want to buy a residential mailbox for your home or buy a commercial mailbox for your business.
