“How the Curb Appeal of the Mailbox may Just Make the Difference”

     If you are looking for ways to improve the curb appeal of your home, you would likely start with the first thing you see when you pull up, the Mailbox. Sometimes, or even most of the time overlooked but used daily, the mailbox is typically an oversight and sometimes, quite an eye sore. Depending on your home or your current home appeal needs, the purchase of a new mailbox may be well worth your while.

 

     Back in the mid to late 1800’s people in the United States received free city delivery by mail carriers. Mail delivered right to the door, without any charge or needless trips to the post office to send or retrieve mail. If no one was home, the initial receptacles for mail ranged from tin cans to old food cartons. By the early 1900’s the Post Office designed the “mailbox” to address all needs by creating the first design which is still used today.

 

     Since that time, many options have become available from which a homeowner can choose to receive and send mail:

§    Traditional mailboxes or “Post Mount” mailboxes are accessed for curb side delivery from your mail carrier

§    Locking mailboxes are another alternative. Locking mailboxes allow the homeowner to remove mail with a key by unlocking the door. The key-lock door may be in the front, rear, or on both sides of the traditional mailbox

§   Wall Mount mailboxes are mounted onto a wall of your home. The mailbox should be in a secure location and in a convenient area for the mail carrier to access

§    Centralized Mail Delivery has been in service since 2006. Traditional curbside mailboxes are no longer permitted for multi-unit properties or home plans. Each compartment (mailbox) is required to be locked. If the compartment is not locked, the carrier will not deliver mail to it
