Mailbox locks help to curtail identity theft, mail theft, and vandalism.

Generally, a vertical mount mailbox is installed next to the front entry of your home.  Installing the vertical wall mount mailboxes may require the use of mounting screws, a drill and anchors.  Vertical wall mount mailboxes are available in styles ranging from Victorian to modern.  Installing a vertical style wall mount mailbox is easy.

    I recently moved our mailbox for safety Reasons. The mail carrier had to park his/her truck in a travel lane in front of our house and hope no one hit them. I moved the mailboxes to the side of the house where we enter. I gave the postal carrier a letter informing them that I was going to do this and if there was a problem please let me know. I waiting approx. 3 weeks to do this.
    The letter carrier now refuses to deliver mail. When one of my tenants went to the post office to ask for her mail, the postal worker said I have no right to just move the boxes. I have looked for a law to see if I have the right to put the mailboxes in a common place. They are on the side of our home at our other apartment house and not In the front. I live in Massachusetts does anyone know of any law saying where they legally have to be placed?
