The product is exactly what I wanted. It looks good. It has a large capacity, and easily takes large envelopes. It is waterproof, and keeps the post dry, even when it is left in the box for a couple of days. It was delivered on time and was well packed.

I installed a new front door and felt that a letter box wouldn't look right. I researched wall mounted letter boxes and struggled to find anything on line or in store. The competitors are typically cheaper but they look cheaper or they look like are a bit too ornate: fine for a thatched cottage but not a new house. The Bobi has great lines, it's well constructed and secure. It looks reassuringly expensive and I'm confident that it is secure. If you want good quality and can afford it, spend the extra and buy this one; absolutely worth it

We had a new front door fitted and wanted to get an external letter box so we could keep drafts to a minimum. The Bobi box is the same colour as the front door and is mounted on the wall to the side and it looks great. We asked the fitters who installed the new front door to mount the letter box and it literally took them a few minutes. It holds plenty of mail which is great because we work from home so sometimes get quite a lot of items but the box is never full. The postman thinks it's a vast improvement because our old letter box was at the bottom of the old front door so it's much quicker and easier for him to deliver our mail. The quality is excellent, the simple contemporary look is really good and goes well with the style of door we now have. On a practical note, we are lucky enough to have a lot of birds in and around our garden and they sometimes make a bit of a mess but the box is easy to clean up and always looks like new. A really great buy.

We were getting some house renovation work done which included a new front door and our builder suggested that we would be better getting rid of the letterbox in the door to maintain good home insulation. This prompted us to investigate the option of a separate mailbox. After some reading and online research we settled on a Bobi which appeared to be robust, stylish and to have sufficient capacity for the volume of mail we normally received. The fitting instructions provided were clear and easy to follow and we are delighted with the result. It was provided with three keys and is easy to operate.

Looked at a number of different letter boxes at various price points but kept going back to this one. The size shape and storage capacity was right so went for it, glad we did, build quality good. Gave weather resistance 4 stars as it has only been fix to the wall since Christmas so can't say long term but looks great up to now.

Excellent product. Well built, stylish, just what we were looking for. Arrived well-packaged. Too soon to comment on weather resistance but early signs are good. Having to drill holes in the back in order to mount was a bit tricky (would have been helpful if they were pre-drilled but understand that the model can also be used free-standing). Great service from Safe.co.uk. Would recommend.

Lovely looking modern letterbox but at a premium.

Whilst not made from the thickest of materials it is substantial enough for its purpose.

We have it mounted to the front wall of our house which meant drilling holes through the main body. The position of which are pre-marked and have small indentations to aid this process.

It would have been nice had rubber grommets or such been provided along with the letterbox to help weatherproof the mountings as water could travel down the back of the unit and in through the drilled holes, although i have not yet found evidence of this happening yet.

Our postman doesn't seem to know how to get the letters fully inside our postbox, they are often sticking out the flap slightly....but I think that's lack of training rather than the fault of the product itself.

Overall, a lovely addition to the frontage of our home.

The post box was not as sturdily made as we were hoping considering the price we paid. We thought the steel was bordering on the flimsy and the locking mechanism is decidedly cheap. Capacity is fine for our requirement and the paint quality seems ok. As it is sited within an open porch out of weather we can’t comment on its weather resistance.

The keys supplied can be fiddly to insert and have been since day 1. On the whole the box metal quality and lock is no better than our old (much cheaper) post box that we had for many years. This is a disappointing purchase - merely an average item for a very high price.

We wanted an elegant, sturdy post box that was also on the upper end in terms of capacity, and most importantly that is properly weatherproof, having bought and sent back a different brand after it allowed a flood of water into on the first day of installation. The Bobi fits all of our requirements; it looks elegant mounted on our stone wall, it is robust, it stores a large amount of post which is important as we go away for several days quite often, and it does not let the water in. My only complaint is that we had to drill our own mounting holes when installing it. I understand that gives the installer some flexibility but I still think it would be better to supply the box with pre-drilled holes.

I love my new letterbox! It was easy to install and is very handsome, and works perfectly with the shape of my door. It’s classic but also a bit unusual. However, I think it should include as standard a device to stop someone putting their hand in - I can easily retrieve most of my mail just by putting hand in the slot. But - excellent capacity, good for A4, magazines and newspapers & appears quite sturdy. Small packages fit but not larger ones. The colour is lovely - door lock opens well (3 keys supplied). Overall really pleased. Thanks

Very pleased with my purchase a bit more expensive than other letter boxes but well worth the extra money! Looks smart like it’s shape. Has holes in the bottom in case rain seeps in so far with all the heavy showers no rain has got in. Small parcels can also fit as there is good space inside and the opening is wide enough for postman to put all sizes of envelopes in. Also easy to keep clean with a quick wipe round box. When taking post out the front panel lifts down holding post in place so nothing falls out!

I am really pleased with our Bobbi slimline classic red post box. It is big enough for the magazines to slip down inside without them sticking out like they did with our old box. It also has holes in the bottom to allow any water that gets in to drain out and not leave the mail wet. I think it looks very smart and I like the crisp, simple lines, glad we went for this style rather than a more traditional style of red post box we have in the UK. Not fussy, just looks right on the side of our house.

Standard Post Box Installation

We offer professional installation on our complete range of Post Boxes.

Our experienced engineer will complete a brief site inspection and then discuss their findings with you to agree positioning of your post box.

Your installation will include fixing the post box to an exterior wall using the fixings included with your post box. The fixings are designed for use with a solid surface such as brick or concrete.

The position of your post box will be governed by safe site access, and other obstructions such as submerged pipes or cables within the wall.

The engineer will carry out a final assessment to ensure the post box is secure before providing a brief demonstration of your post box and confirming the installation has been completed to your satisfaction.
