Most residential mailboxes are either post mounted or wall mounted. Yet, some homeowners require larger mailboxes with more incoming mail space for packages and large amounts of mail. Most often, that solution resides with drop box mailboxes.
Since most available residential drop mailboxes are utilitarian in style, homeowners often have little choice from which to choose.
However, for homeowners looking to punch up the style of their drop mailboxes for home use, the experts at The MailboxWorks (the nation’s leading supplier of residential mailboxes) suggest these top three, most unique drop box mailboxes for 2016 including:
- Elephantrunk Parcel Drop Box Mailbox
- Ecco 8 Tower Mailbox
- Gaines Classic Mailbox
One of the newest and most innovative residential drop mailboxes is The MailboxWorks’ Elephantrunk parcel drop mailbox by Architectural Mailboxes. At just $333, this locking drop box mailbox will put an immediate stop to missed parcel deliveries. Large enough to hold oversized mail and most small packages (from carriers such as FedEx and UPS), the Elephantrunk parcel drop mailbox provides peace of mind for homeowners who need a secure place for packages and large quantities of mail to be delivered.
Crafted with heavy gauge steel and cast aluminum panels, and anchored to the hardscape or landscape beneath it with the included bolts, the Elephantrunk parcel drop mailbox is solidly built to withstand years of faithful use. Even multiple packages as large as 11.5” x 9.3” x 7.3” can be safely delivered to the rotating drum inside the Elephantrunk parcel drop mailbox. Plus, this drop mailbox features an outgoing parcel section that allows you to leave outgoing parcels safely out of sight of thieves. A bright yellow “no delivery” indicator is also included so that carriers can be easily notified that you wish your service to be suspended when you are away.
Ecco 8 Tower Mailbox
Another stunningly unique drop box mailbox is the Ecco 8 Tower Locking Mailbox. At only $367, this ornate Victorian style drop box mailbox is reminiscent of 19th century British Queen Anne architecture. Featuring motifs and reliefs upon all four sides of the drop mailbox, the Ecco 8 Tower is constructed of cast aluminum and then powder coated in one of three beautiful finishes: bronze, satin black, and rust brown. Boasting a large front access door that pivots the full length of the side, and a well-protected incoming mail slot that keeps the rain at bay, the Ecco 8 Tower mailbox is convenient for daily use. It can even be installed upon a masonry pedestal to add additional stature.
Another unique drop box mailbox is the Gaines Classic mailbox with pedestal. At $548.47, this residential drop-style mailbox exudes a stylish elegance. Constructed of cast aluminum and electrostatically applied powder coat finish, this drop mailbox will never rust and is virtually maintenance free. Available in a wide array of finishes and accents, an architectural match to one’s residence is easy to find. While not typically considered a drop mailbox, the large Gaines Classic mailbox with pedestal anchors to the hardscape and securely accepts packages along with several days’ worth of mail.
