Not anywhere near as good quality as our previous box. Cheap material and not very sturdy. Lock loose and not at all secure. Struggle to get the key in lock, have to wiggle it around to open.

Looks tidy and discrete, despite its large size. Large capacity to accommodate all post including small parcels. Has saved me many trips to the sorting office to retrieve packages too large for my letter box.

The build is good but the lick is terrible and that is the part you use every day. It does take the size of parcels and letters I require but the fiddly lock to remove my mail lets it down.

The G2 box has done exactly what we wanted from it. The only problem we have is the noise it makes when water drips onto it - if you leave an old newspaper inside it, the "drum" effect is reduced and it's ok.

The product was very good. We particularly liked the quality of the body, and the metal used. The operation of the unit is very user friendly and easy to use, while remaining extra secure. The design of the flap is fantastic, as it means it is almost impossible to get your hand inside to retrieve the contents. We use ours as a safety deposit box within a school, where people pay money in by placing them inside an envelope and then putting it inside our letterbox. This obviously means that security is paramount for us, as sometimes we have large quantities of money inside. The letterbox satisfies our needs fantastically, and we will remember in the future.

Post is often wet or damp after rain (and the flap has not been left open). I've not yet had time to run tests to determine what is causing this.

The design has a small problem (which has reduced my Ease of Use figure). The upper fixing holes are positioned directly behind the bar between the flap and the access door, so that making the fixings requires even a long screwdriver to be at an angle, making it cam-out very easily. A little higher or lower would have avoided the problem.

opener feels a bit fragile and metal case is not as robust as my last one of a similar size, don't think it will last that long which is a shame as it looks smart. Could have been supplied with stick on numbers for the price!

This Mersey Green steel post box does the job perfectly, just what I was looking for. An affordable, sturdy, well built, stylish and good quality product that looks great, complements the front of the house and avoids the post man having to walk down the driveway to the property. It has 4 pre drilled holes on the rear panel and comes with four screws to enable its installation to any reasonably flat surface. Very easy to fit. It comes well packaged to ensure any potential damage during delivery is minimised. Delivery was prompt and within a couple of working days from ordering.

Exactly what we needed! Very easy to install and our local post man can now post items for the Office at the weekend when the Office is closed without having to return items to the post office as was our previous experience. The colour makes it easy to spot if our regular postie is on annual leave.

It looks good and if it were to stay dry inside it would be brilliant,granted it is free standing not secured to a wall so we have plugged these holes but there seem to be little holes which allow the rain in

I was delighted when my new steel post box arrived. I love the attractive shade of Mersey Green and is excellent value for money. The box was very well packed and in excellent condition. It arrived within two days even though I had ordered a handy extra set of keys to be cut.

My old postbox had seen better days. It was chipped and faded and often filled with rainwater, ruining its contents. My new post box is very smart and of sturdy construction. There is plenty of room for everything including bulky magazines. It is weatherproof too! My neighbours are also impressed and asked me where they could buy one.

It is a bit tinny, but you get what you pay for. It does the job and we will see if it subsequently rusts. The paint looks a bit thin as does the metal. But on balance, absolutely fine.

Bought 2 of these for 2 flats as they matched the other boxes in the complex. Good shape design and hopefully they won’t rust like the old ones did, but the locks aren’t brass so difficult to open. The boxes might last but not confident about the locks. The lift up openings also rattle in strong winds.

Bought for my Mum in law, she’s delighted with her mail box. It’s strong and sturdy. I particularly like it as unlike some others we’ve seen it’s far to deep for anyone to reach their hand in and retrieve what’s inside. Very happy thankyou 😀

Can this be fixed to a wire mesh fence from the back? What fixings are needed. If not, what box would you recommend?
TimH
I would suggest using strong cable ties if attaching to a wire mesh fence. However if you would like a post box designed for metal railings I can recommended the Black Railings Post Box.

Hi, as a school collecting trip payments would you consider this letter box to be secure enough when left unattended to contain money?
Many thanks

Although the post box has a key lock I would not consider this suitable for collecting money. I would advise this Sentry Day Deposit Safe 25K from our Deposit Safes category.

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.

Non-standard Installation

In some cases, it may be necessary to install additional materials or provide extra resources (manpower) to facilitate an installation in a safe manner.

If additional costs are likely these will be discussed with you prior to installation. Reasons for extra costs might include:

  • Specialised access equipment and permits such as hoists, lifts and cranes.
  • Outside of normal hours working (Mon-Fri, 9am to 5pm).
  • 4x4 Vehicular access requirements to remote rural sites.
  • Road closure including necessary permits.
  • Additional manpower to overcome technical, lifting or safety access issues.

We offer installation throughout the UK mainland, however some more remote and rural post codes in the Highlands are subject to a surcharge to cover additional fuel and traveling time costs.

The following areas will incur a rural travel surcharge:

£55.00 Surcharge Areas

  • PH 1 - 26 (No coverage in other PH postcodes)
  • PA 1 - 19 (No coverage in other PA postcodes)
  • KA 19, 26
  • ML 11, 12

£105.00 Surcharge Areas

  • IV 01-17, 30,31,32 (No coverage in other IV postcodes)
  • AB
  • DD
  • TD
  • DG
  • KW

These additional elements are deemed to fall outside the definition of a 'Standard Installation'. If you feel your installation might be non-standard please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.

If applicable, additional costs are to be paid before installation begins.

Warranty Terms & Conditions

Our installer provides a standard 12 month warranty on all new installations and a 3 month warranty on all materials provided during maintenance visits.

Note: Existing system components and pre-supplied equipment are not included in the installation warranty as these elements are covered by the Manufacturer warranty.

We reserve the right to undertake an ‘Assessment Call’ without prejudice to investigate any complaints relating to materials failure or poor workmanship to assess if the complaint is valid. Please note that remedial service calls generated by elements outside of our sphere of influence or due to different fault conditions will be chargeable to you at an agreed call out charge.

In scenarios where you request a post installation service call and our assessment identifies the fault condition or cause of the fault falls outside of the limitations of the standard installation warranty (Force Majeure, different fault etc) a call out charge will be incurred for the visit.

Assessment calls raised for reasons outside our sphere of influence or responsibility and not covered by the standard installation will incur a call out charge for labour and additional materials.

The following are examples of when a call out charge would be incurred:

  • Accidental Damage
  • Malicious Damage
  • Materials or Manufacturer Failure
  • System Modification
  • Incorrect User Diagnosis
  • Broadband Related
  • App Related
  • User Error
