Post Mount Mail Box – The Standard for Mailboxes
There are many styles and shapes to choose from when selecting a new mailbox. The most popular type of mailbox is the post mounted box. Post mounted boxes are normally sold without a post. Mailbox posts must be purchased separately. The majority of the boxes can be attached to a typical 4×4 inch post positioned by the curb in front of your home. Be careful and read the installation instructions because some specialty or novelty mailboxes may require additional hardware and support for installation.
When selecting a mail box, choose one that is rust proof and weather-resistant. Nothing spoils the look of a perfectly manicured lawn than a rusty, dilapidated or peeling mailbox. Designs for individual boxes range from very basic to sophisticate depending on the owner’s preference.
There are many mailbox accessories available for the post mounted mail box. Features include newspaper holders, metal signs or plates displaying the home address and residence name, mailbox toppers, and outgoing mail flags. Post mounted mailboxes also make mail delivery easier for the postal carrier because the postal carrier doesn’t have to leave the car to deposit your mail.
Your personal style speaks volumes about who you are so it’s just natural that your style should be reflected in the mailbox you choose.
Many companies carry an impressive selection of mailboxes in various styles, colors and sizes. From hand painted masterpieces to functional workhorses, there is a mailbox to fit your style.
