We have now been using this for three months and are happy to recommend it. It was easy to install and looks smart on the wall of our cottage. The lid makes it easy to check whether there is any post inside it without needing to unlock it, whilst still keeping the post reasonably secure. Overall a very good value product.

The only minor issue is that in stormy weather a little rain can get get driven into it by the wind. Although there are several drainage holes in the bottom, they are in the centre of the base whereas the water has gathered in one of the corners, making the bottom of some post soggy. However this has only happened a couple of times so it has not been much of a problem.

The post box was delivered in a timely fashion. We ordered it as we had just fitted a new front door and didn't want a standard letter box on the door. It is of a sturdy construction and very easy to fit to any surface especially brick. The slim looking design is deceptive as it can take several A4 size envelopes at any one time whilst leaving plenty of room for other smaller mail items. The flip lid protects the contents from the elements as it is designed to do whilst not looking obtrusive to the overall design. I would very happily recommend this particular product to those wishing to enhance the look of your house frontage.

After looking at a number of mailboxes, I decided on this one, which was promptly delivered and installed with relative ease. As it's for a business, it looks smart and professional. As many reviewers have said before, the flap will lift up in the wind and therefore allow the rain in, which gets the bottom of your letters wet. We are looking to add some small weights or magnets to the flap, which is a pity that the manufacturer doesn't think to do this. The lock is reasonable and the overall quality is good. Happy with this purchase.

This works very well for us. It was easy to fix onto the wall, holds a normal volume of mail no problem, looks smart and much better for our post person than having to bend down to the old letterbox at the bottom of the door. I'm very pleased with it.

A very smart post box, plenty of room for large items, being a business we get a lot of product promotion literature. Every thing stays perfectly dry in the heaviest rain, as there is a good flap for the opening and accessing the mail is very easy.

I think this product is very good value for money as I would have to pay nearly double the amount in shops or DIY stores.

We live a very exposed, coastal location and get a battering from strong sea winds and plenty of heavy rain. The post box has shown no sign of rust or paint loss and still looks new and smart.

I purchased this box assuming it would offer a degree of 'weatherproofness' but it has proved to be rather a poor choice! Soggy envelopes and a lock that has already become difficult to open! I can't recommend this product to anyone other than people who live in very sheltered areas and low rainfall...certainly not one for people in rural areas!

I purchased this product for my sister's house. It is exactly the same box as I bought from you several years ago for myself, and has given me excellent service. It is made of good quality steel and the paint has a good finish. My box has stood the test of time well. The mail slot across the top is full width and will take full A4 letters without the need to bend the corners of the letters or fold them in half to get them in the box. It is easily fitted using the screws and plugs provided. We are both happy with our purchases.

Good little post box, plain, no frills and does the job - just what I wanted. Only slight criticism is that the lid sometimes flips up in if there is a strong wind and lets in the rain. Other than that it does what it says on the tin.

This is the first post box I have purchased and I cannot fault it. It is a perfect size, fitting in post and magazines with ease. It looks nice on the wall by the front door and as it is under a porch type covering it will always be completely waterproof. It is easy to clean and has saved my post from being "killed" by the dog. I would highly recommend this post box which was easy to fit to the wall and appears to be sturdy. It does the job it is supposed to do with ease and I would buy it again.

This is a well built post box that easily takes A4 envelopes. It has proved very weather proof but includes drainage holes just in case. We added some folded mesh to the inside base (ex bird feeder mesh) to keep envelopes above any dampness. However, the post box has so far resisted extreme weather. The top hinged lid works very well ensuring envelopes are not bent.

The post box has a very good paint finish to all surfaces and so should last for many years. An application of car wax has kept the deep shine.

This post box is highly recommended and represents god value for money.

What lock type is used on this mailbox? I need it to be very secure so can you give me the lock make that is installed on it.
Keith, Truro
This would be a standard cam lock used with most post boxes. However if you are looking for additional security I can recommend both the High Security Post Box (medium) and High Security Post Box (large) which work on a more secure Euro Profile cylinder.

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
