We bought this box to replace a smaller inferior one that let the water in! Safe to say this box does not let water in. It has very good build quality with sturdy materials. The overall finish is smooth and the depth of colour adds to the great quality of this box. The lid moves smoothly and is just the right weight to open and close - and stay closed when needed. This newspaper/post box is roomy enough to hold newspapers and letters as well as small parcels which is a real bonus. Our box arrived well packaged and we had no problems with payment or delivery which was on time. Overall, we are really pleased with how this box has held up to the different weathers we've had this year. We would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a good quality post/newspaper box that looks great and doesn't leak!

I found this to be of sound quality and was very pleased with the storage capacity. It is very weather resistant and I feel I got value for money. It is suitable size for all sizes of envelopes and any small packages. If you want to have something for parcels then you would need something larger. I put a big red sign inside the lid of the mailbox directing the post man to a safe place to put parcels if I am out and so all my mailing needs have been met. I recommend this product to those needing an outside mail box.

Fantastic. It fits the daily mail and local paper in with room to spare. Keeps the papers dry. Very sturdy build. I got some hooks fro. B&q and hung the box on my front gate with no problems. Would recommend getting one of these

I haven't had it long enough to judge it in the long term. My criticism is that it is just not quite deep enough to take a broadsheet newspaper with the lid completely shut - especially at weekends when the volume of paper is greatest. It only needs about another centimetre - I would have though that somebody could have worked this out.

The newspaper box is a smart looking piece of equipment and it does the job it is supposed to do very well. I am pleased I bought it.

I was happy with the appearance, size and design of this product and its ease of installation. I did notice, however, that it is made of very thin metal sheet compared to the old box it replaced.

I am disappointed that the 'brass' plate on the front of the box is rusting and clearly will not last much longer which is why I cannot recommend the letter box.
