Disappearing US Mail Blue Boxes Leads to a Rise in Need for Commercial Mailboxes Configured with Outgoing Mail Slots

August 15, 2011

4C Pedestal Mailboxes Collection Drop BoxesThe US mail dropbox (the royal blue US mail blue boxes) that for decades was a part of Americana is disappearing from the cultural landscape.  Once bolted true on every busy street corner, the ubiquitous blue box mailbox is being removed by the United States Postal Service; fewer and fewer US mail drop box locations make it very difficult for many Americans to find a blue mailbox.

“We adjust our workforce to match America’s changing communication trends,” said Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe in a Postal News Release dated March 24, 2011.  In a culture dominated by the automobile, people expect to post their mail from their own mailbox rather than drive around looking for a walk-up US mail dropbox.

The result nationwide? It’s easy to get your mail, just not as simple to send US mail anymore. The resulting impact is an increase in demand for secure mail drop-off points and a rise in the need for secure commercial drop box mailboxes that feature not only secure compartments for mail delivery but also a one-stop place for residents and businesses to deposit their outgoing mail.  Fortunately, there are a variety of secure Commercial Mailboxes available to suit the needs of nearly any property or tenant.

Leading commercial mailboxes vendor, The MailboxWorks, provides a wide and impressive selection of USPS approved secure commercial mailboxes to the discerning buyer including specific commercial drop box mailboxes designed specifically for office buildings, industrial parks, universities, and colleges, plus multi-tenant condo and apartment building complexes, as well as urban and suburban residential subdivisions requiring centralized mail delivery.

The nation’s leading real estate developers and property managers trust The MailboxWorks for top-quality secure commercial mailboxes at value-laden pricing to meet their specific needs.  Such commercial drop box mailboxes range from the stand-alone commercial CBU mailboxes or Cluster Box Unit commercial mailboxes (designed to meet the needs of tenant compartments from 8 to 16) to the 4C Pedestal Commercial Mailboxes that provide flexibility for tenant counts under 8 or beyond 16 all the way to 29 compartments per unit.

The MailboxWorks also carries wall-mounted commercial drop box mailboxes such as the 4C-STD Horizontal Mailboxes that can be customized in both tenant compartment size and number of overall compartments.  These 4C-STD horizontal commercial mailboxes can be ordered as either a front-loading unit or a rear-loading unit to meet specific installation requirements.

UPDATE: 4C Pedestal Mailboxes have been discontinued as of November 30, 2020. The USPS Cluster Box Unit (CBU) Mailbox is now the standard for all multi-family mail delivery.

For older complexes requiring Vertical Commercial Mailboxes, The MailboxWorks provides a wide array of replacement use only vertical commercial mailboxes available in a variety of configurations.

All of these units, whether CBU Commercial Mailboxes, 4C-STD commercial mailboxes, or vertical commercial mailboxes, are available as commercial drop box mailboxes with an outgoing mail slot or a secure door that provides a safe and convenient way for tenants to avoid having to look for the disappearing US mail blue boxes.
