Locking Mailboxes Prevent Mail Theft
Not only do residential locking mailboxes help keep your mail safe; they also help prevent mail theft and identity theft. Here we have almost four dozen post mount secure mailboxes to choose from.
If you still receive walk-up mail delivery and you are looking for mail security, we also carry a variety of residential secure wall mount styles. Along with classic, vintage, Victorian, and pedestal options, we also carry more contemporary and modern styles, including stainless steel.
Our mailbox experts know mailboxes better than any online retailer. So, if you need assistance or more information, please feel free to ask us.
Protect Your Sensitive Mail
Unfortunately, mail theft and identity theft have been on the rise. According to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, nearly half a million Americans have their mail and identities stolen annually. In most cases, these are preventable crimes that can be addressed by simply installing more secure mailboxes.
If you are worried about having sensitive mail stolen from your mailbox while you are at home or while you are away, then you should upgrade to a mailbox that can be locked or purchase a locking insert.
Whether you have a curbside post mount mailbox or a wall mount mailbox for walk-up delivery, a locking mailbox will help prevent mail theft. And protecting your mail means protecting your identity.
How does a locking mailbox work?
Most secure mailboxes consist of a slot (for USPS to drop off mail) and a secured or locked area where you eventually pick up the delivered mail using a key. This means that checks, bills, bank statements, and other confidential mail are protected. It also means less crime since mail thieves will stop coming back once they learn they can no longer access your mail.
Don’t be a victim. There are many secure options to choose from at MailboxWorks including curbside and secure wall mount mailboxes.
