The Most Expensive Mailbox You Can Buy

September 14, 2010

Jerry Hammond installed his $49 mailbox last Saturday, stood back and admired his handiwork, and then went on a two-week vacation with the money he knew he was getting from his 2009 tax return.  What Jerry did not know is that his inexpensive, non-locking mailbox was a perfect target for mailbox thieves.  The thief’s haul?  $5,247, according to Jerry’s accountant.  Add the cost of Jerry’s $4,000 vacation to a resort in Cabo San Lucas and Jerry’s upside down nearly $10,000 because he bought the wrong mailbox.  It could have been worse.  Ask Samuel Cobalt.

The thief who stole Samuel Cobalt’s mail didn’t find a big check, so the thief just stole Samuel’s identity. With Samuel’s identity, he opened up credit card accounts, and checking accounts, which, even after three years, still loom large over Mr. Cobalt’s credit report.

Plot twist: it would seem that Mr. Cobalt’s $49 mailbox is the most expensive mailbox money can buy.

High Security Rural Locking Mailboxes

Samuel knew about rural locking mailboxes before the theft, but today, he owns one. He purchased a Curbvault High-Security Locking Mailbox from for his family’s mail. This locking residential mailbox is constructed of indestructible 1/8″ thick seam-wielded steel plate.

This vandal-proof mailbox resists baseball bats, bullets, and even pipe bombs.  Plus, this locking mailbox is the ultimate defense against mail and identity theft.  Stronger than brick and much easier to install, this water-tight, mildew-resistant, high-capacity, vandal-proof locking mailbox can hold 3,200 cubic inches of mail (that’s one long vacation).

And Jerry? He purchased a locking residential mailbox that fits the character of his upscale neighborhood: the Keystone Post-Mount Locking Mailbox. This decorative locking mailbox is virtually maintenance-free since it is made of cast aluminum and covered with a powder coat finish, so it will never rust.  Because the Gaines Keystone locking residential mailboxes come in various finishes, Jerry avoided the cookie-cutter look of more modest neighborhoods.  And Jerry has the peace of mind that comes from installing a quality locking mailboxes residential mailbox.

In fact, ordering the Gaines Keystone locking mailbox was so easy, that Jerry shopped the vast selection of wall-mount locking mailboxes online at, North America’s Mailboxes Retailer,  and chose the Whitehall wall-mount locking mailbox as a thoughtful gift for his mom.
