Do you know how to choose a mailbox to meet all of your needs?
The last few decades have been life altering for most of us. Online shopping, working from home, or running a home-based business is now the norm for many. As well, the threat of identity theft and mail theft continues to be a major problem.
Whether you are moving into a new home or it’s time to update your old mailbox, here are some tips on how to choose a mailbox for home.
Residential Mailbox Types
Most mailbox types are available in a wide selection of colors allowing plenty of options to match your home’s décor.
|Wall Mounted Mailboxes – If you are one of the lucky few that still enjoys walk up mail delivery then a wall mount mailbox may be what you need. They can be non-locking or locking wall mount mailboxes, and some are available with an optional newspaper holder.|
|Mail Slots – For walk up mail delivery a mail slot offers added security since your mail can be deposited right inside your home. Mail slots can be installed through a door or through a wall.|
|Post Mount Roadside Mailboxes – Curbside mail delivery is still quite popular. Mailbox and post packages can also be non-locking or locking mailboxes. Other options may include a newspaper holder, address plaques, or mailbox lettering in a variety of sizes and styles. See our earlier blog on Tips for Choosing A Mailbox Post.|
