Your Options for Commercial Mailboxes
At MailboxWorks you’ll find many mailboxes for sale, including a full line of USPS-approved commercial mailboxes by Auth Florence Manufacturing. For sending and receiving mail and small packages safely, take a look at these products!
What are commercial mailboxes?
Commercial mailboxes are central delivery systems where a US Postal worker can deliver mail to multiple tenants at one location. These mailboxes are used in office buildings, apartments, and dorms as well as colleges and other industrial and multi-tenant places. Commercial mailboxes must meet USPS standards unless they are being used for private mail delivery.
What is the Standard 4C Regulation?
In October of 2006, the Standard−4C Regulation went into effect. The regulation says any post-mounted or wall mount mailboxes that are installed as part of a major renovation or new construction must meet the Standard 4C requirements for security and accessibility. These include both indoor and outdoor cluster mailbox installations. This regulation applies to any 4C commercial mailbox, cluster box unit or CBU, or centralized mail delivery system.
Front Loading Commercial 4C Mailboxes
USPS-approved front loading 4C mailboxes are a convenient and secure plan for mail delivery. These mailbox units can be wall-mounted, recessed into a wall, or mounted on an outdoor pedestal or shelter. Consider Standard-4C compliant front-loading mailboxes during your renovation project or as the most secure option for private mail delivery.
Rear Loading Mailboxes
Commercial mailboxes with rear loading abilities offer extra security for mail delivery. That is especially true for private mail distribution since access to all mailbox compartments at once is only available from a separate secure room. Florence rear-loading mailboxes also have heavy gauge aluminum and steel construction and secure tenant mailbox locks that stop mail and identity theft.
**Note: USPS specifies that 4C rear-loading mailboxes be installed in a secure room that restricts public access.
Horizontal Commercial Mailboxes
Designed to prevent mail theft and fraud, USPS approved horizontal mailboxes include 4C horizontal mailboxes for postal distribution and private mail distribution. MailboxWorks has the best prices for these mailboxes and mailbox accessories, including mailbox shelters and key keepers.
Commercial Apartment Mailboxes
Florence Corp. makes free-standing, pedestal cluster box units (CBU mailboxes) for outdoor mail delivery services. The MailboxWorks has both recessed and surface mounted 4C horizontal mailboxes for indoor apartment mail deliveries. Additionally, these solutions can be used at any university, college, or wherever centralized mail delivery needs a secure mailbox unit. Florence apartment vertical mailboxes are also available as replacement mailboxes in multi-tenant buildings and apartment complexes.
Note: Secure apartment mailboxes have also been used in military and government complexes.
Vertical Commercial Mailboxes
These mailboxes by Auth Florence can be used in apartment complexes and multi-tenant buildings, but USPS has only approved them for replacement use.
Cluster Box CBU Commercial Mailbox Units
Locking CBU mailboxes are USPS-approved commercial mailboxes manufactured by Auth Florence Manufacturing and are made for outdoor use. CBU (cluster box units) are perfect for areas that need safe centralized mail delivery systems, such as multi-unit residential complexes. Furthermore, we also carry reinforced, high-security, vandal-proof commercial mailboxes.
Commercial Cell Phone Storage Lockers & Cabinets
Many commercial businesses, government buildings, educational facilities, and industrial complexes now have restrictions on cell phone use. Cell phone storage lockers are available as front loading or rear loading units. They use a secure safe system for storing cell phones and other electronic devices as well as small items like keys and wallets. Military forts also use cell phone storage lockers.
Commercial Drop Boxes & Collection Boxes
Along with USPS-approved commercial mailboxes, the MailboxWorks also has secure drop boxes and collection boxes. Our products include bundled door mail collection units, wall-mounted collection boxes, post mount locking drop boxes, rear access drop boxes, and front access drop boxes.
