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.

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!

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 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.

A really well made container, easy to fix to the wall and a stylish look. Have had many comments from our neighbours that they liked it. I brought it to stop post, newspapers etc being posted through the letterbox and frightening our very nervous cat when anything dropped in front of her cat flap. A job well done. The box in sufficient size to take a shoe box size box, so has been used for parcel deliveries. Durable metal that has shown no sign of deterioration in the rain and was installed at the beginning of the year. Would thoroughly recommend this product.

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.

I would like to thank you and your company for this wonderfully produced newspaper box which enhances the wall of our newly renovated bungalow . It replaces our previous one which served its purpose for so many years . Its dimensions and spaciousness make it so handy for newspapers and has other uses I.e small packets and a dry place for other items if it rains . It is obviously well made as it is so durable .It is well thought out and I will highly recommend this box to family and friends . It is also a very good idea if someone has a low letter box which some people may find difficult to bend down and reach . Thank you once again for your prompt very good service in sending this box to us . This was much appreciated .

Kind regards .

well made and fair value for money. difficult to find one without lock - some problem fitting with spacer washers on back, but once installed looks a first class job and sets off the new railings

Easy to use, but the embossed 'newspapers' sign is hard to read, especially in the dark. A bit thin re. the metal guage and only one of the two hinge rivets was fitted correctly - the other side was waving in the air. Also ( a bit of a nit pick) the 'newspapers' sign was not quite level. Happily I was able to fix both problems. Storage capacity good enough for three weekend papers.

Weather resistance? - it's too early to judge re corrosion etc, but it does keep the rain out in our exposed location. The value-for-money would seem ok but rather better with a thicker metal and without the faults!

Great newspaper box which can be used for post, parcels and newspapers. Perfect size and the box can be used freestanding or can be attached to a wall or door. Great vale for money and arrived quickly. Easy to use by opening the top flap of the box to insert post and newspapers. The box is excellent quality and weather resistant. Super easy to use. I would highly recommend buying this. The storage capacity is the right size for parcels and post to be safely stored in. I would highly recommend this product. Great!

My new Thames Black Newspaper Box is extremely smart, and very shiny. I already had one but being approximately 17 years old decided to keep up appearances at the front door and treat myself to a shiny new one. The old one was also still complete and useable and I have fixed that one to the back door. It will need a lick of paint but can still be very useful. The size is extremely useful for papers and magazines and with internet deliveries becoming more popular it is a must to have something as useful and discreet as this Box.

Only started to get papers delivered because of lockdown but so glad we did.

No more trailing to the shops in bad weather. All we needed was something to collect the paper in. The box works really well and the papers stay really dry, except when the delivery guy drops them! The box is well finished, we love the gold lettering, and looks very stylish by the front door, even our neighbours have commented on it. It is a tiny bit small to hold the two Sunday papers we get, but can still be managed.

Well made, looks good and does the job it was bought for. No more torn newspapers because delivery person just stuffs it through the letter box or leaves it on the door mat to get wet. Very good addition to the house.

We bought this product when we started having our papers delivered, due to covid 19. It has been a great help, it has kept the newspaper clean and dry, and stopped them blowing away in the wind. The postman has also started using it as he is able to put magazines and small parcels in it more easily than the post box. It seems to be weathering well and has good wall fittings supplied with it. Ut was delivered quickly after ordering so I would happily recommend this product. It was also good value for money.
