+ Secure from random pilfering. (If someone really wants to get in they will, but that's true of anything.) I bought it more for privacy than security as other people can access my property and see any waiting mail.

+ Very easy to mount, with screws and rubber grommets supplied.

+ Bright red colour and with embossed envelope on the outside. Very smart.

+ Popular with posties (I was told) because they are easy to use and clearly a postbox. (Some novelty postboxes confuse temporary postal staff and complaints ensue.)

+ Large enough for all reasonable daily post, including large magazines and small packages (Jiffy bags).

+ So far, seems to be waterproof. Can get a little damp in driving rain (_Scottish_ driving rain that is), but under normal wet weather the mail stays dry. Any dampness is gone once the sun shines again.

+ Relative to the price, I can't come up with any negative feedback.

Easy to afix to the wall. The colour faded from red to a pale mauve within a very short period of time and no longer matches up. It will have to be painted soon.

No more visits to the sorting office for collection oversized envelopes, No more torn letters or magazines. Plus the postman is happy and my magazines don't get soaked.

Good red colour which fitted with brick work. Not as heavy duty and deep storage as I would have liked.

I liked the build & capacity for the price. The Red option was a bonus. Installation was tricky as screw holes were not in line with the front opening-a definite design flaw. Also the key operation isn't the smoothest.

The website was easy to use regarding the selection of the most suitable item and the subsequent order. The safe was despatched and received within a few days and was exactly as described. We have had problems with previous post/safe boxes not being visible but this red box is visible without being ugly. It is secure and was easy to mount, with a deep capacity enabling it to store both small and larger items of post. The finish is good and should provide it with a long life, with resistance to the weather for both the paint and the box itself. Overall, a good value item, durable and practical...I would recommend!!
