When you consider that the average post mounted residential mailbox is typically 8 inches wide by 10 inches tall by 16 inches long, the available three quarters of a cubit foot of space is insufficient to hold all the letters, magazines, and small packages these homeowners receive.
Unfortunately, most of the available space in the average residential mailbox is in the length of the mailbox, which significantly limits its capacity to receive small packages, or more than a few days worth of mail.

Large Waterglass Studios Handmade Copper Mailbox – (1.95 cubit feet) – The seventh largest, and smallest of the large post mount mailboxes in this lineup, is the Waterglass Studios Handmade Post Mount Copper mailbox at 1.95 cubit feet (12.5” high x 11.75” wide x 23” deep). This elegant, handcrafted Waterglass Studios large copper mailbox boasts over 50% more width than the standard post mount mailbox, which allows it to accept larger packages and large-format magazines.
Large Architectural Geneva Locking Mailbox – (2.15 cubit feet) – The sixth largest residential mailbox is the Architectural Mailboxes Geneva post mount mailbox at 2.15 cubit feet (15” high x 16.5” wide x 15” deep).

Large Whitehall Balmoral Mailbox – (2.18 cubit feet) – The fifth largest residential mailbox is the Whitehall Balmoral at 2.18 cubit feet (13” high x 13.625” wide x 21.25” deep).
