7 Large Mailbox Options – Post Mount Residential Mailboxes
The average post mount residential mailbox is typically 8 inches wide by 10 inches tall by 16 inches deep. With only three quarters of a cubit foot of space, it is insufficient to hold all the letters, magazines, and small packages these homeowners may receive.
Unfortunately, most of the available space in the average residential mailbox is in the depth or length of the mailbox. This significantly limits its capacity to receive small packages or more than a few days worth of mail.
So what large capacity residential mailboxes are available for these homeowners?
In this article, the experts at The MailboxWorks, the nation’s largest provider of residential post mount mailboxes, offer an overview of large capacity residential mailboxes that today’s homeowners can choose from.
