Private Distribution Mailboxes: Horizontal, 4C Mailboxes

Commercial Mailboxes for Private Delivery

Private mailboxes for business, or more specifically private use horizontal mailboxes are designed for private mail distribution. This is the type of mail service where someone other than a USPS employee will deliver the mail. With a recessed design, these non-USPS horizontal commercial private distribution mailboxes offer the highest level of mail security and feature pry resistant concealed hinges and tamper resistant master mailbox doors.

Private Mailbox Applications

Centralized private distribution mailboxes differ from USPS horizontal mailboxes. Private use mailboxes come with a pre-installed private mail delivery master lock. USPS postal versions have only been prepped to receive a US postal lock, which only the Postal Service can install or use.

In their article, “Why can mailboxes only be used for U.S. mail?” the Oxford University Press states that “It is against Federal law to put anything in a mailbox, ‘on which no postage has been paid,’ and if caught doing so a person could be fined up to $5,000 and an organization $10,000.”

There are two kinds of horizontal mailboxes to be used for private mail distribution and storage:

  • Front Loading Horizontal Private Mailboxes
  • Rear Loading Horizontal Private Mailboxes

Both loading options are popular and depend on your space and application.

Contact MailboxWorks Toll Free at (866) 717-4943 and let us help you determine if front loading or rear loading horizontal private distribution mailboxes are a better fit for your private mail delivery needs.

Private Mailboxes for Commercial & Residential Use

Private horizontal mailboxes are ideal for residential, commercial, and industrial buildings that do not utilize USPS postal delivery. Instead, mail delivery is managed privately by a mail room manager. Applications may include:

• Apartment and Condo Buildings
• Commercial and Industrial Developments
• Military and Other Government Facilities
• University and College Dorms
• Hospitals and Medical Offices
• Plus Any Facility with Private Mail Room Delivery

Indoor and Outdoor Mailbox Applications

Florence Manufacturing’s horizontal commercial mailboxes and 4C private distribution mailboxes are designed for indoor and outdoor installations.

Concealed hinges and tamper proof master doors plus USPS grade aluminum (horizontal) or stainless steel (4C horizontal) construction makes these private mailboxes highly resistant to mail theft, vandalism and unfavorable weather conditions.

  • For non-4C horizontal private distribution mailboxes, choose model 1600 front loading or model 1700 rear loading with A, B, C, D, E or F sized mailbox doors
  • For 4C horizontal mailboxes by Auth Florence, choose from Suite A through I sized doors in a variety of configurations
