Secure Package Delivery with A Package Friendly Mailbox

January 15, 2019

North Americans now do so much shopping online that having a secure package-friendly mailbox is more of a necessity than a luxury.

In this blog post, our mailbox experts at the MailboxWorks will look at secure package-friendly mailbox options for homeowners and why you should consider these large capacity residential mailboxes if you run a home-based business.

You Can Fit More in A Large Capacity Mailbox

The standard size for a residential mailbox has been updated by USPS several times over the last century. In 2001, USPS mailbox specifications were updated again so that residential mailboxes need to fall within the following parameters:

a. Minimum 18.5” deep by 6.25” wide and 6” high
b. Maximum 22.75” deep by 11” wide and 15” high

A secure, locking, large capacity mailbox is a package-friendly mailbox and many of today’s residential mailbox manufacturers have been quick to keep up with the demand. Below are a few of the large-capacity mailboxes we recommend here at the MailboxWorks.
