The post box is excellent, it is very easy to put up on the wall. It looks really good, modern and shiny. It holds enough post for normal use but would probably need to be emptied by a friend or neighbor if you were off on a week or twos holiday. We have had quite a bit of rain in recent weeks and so far the post has kept nice and dry with no obvious leakage. It is easily emptied using the key provided. I feel it was also very very good value for money and I am very pleased with it and would highly recommend it.

Easy to order - swift delivery - easy to put in place - extremely easy to use - felt a bit lightweight but does its job - only downside is that in wind the flap at the top opens and shuts making a noise , - not good when trying to sleep of a night ! Have had to put rubber buffers in place . Internal capacity is adequate for family post - have had no complaints from postman .last of all it looks good next to our contemporary door .

So far so good. Easy to put up on external wall. Attractive stainless steel finish which is easy to wipe clean. Despite the drain holes in the base, rainwater often collects in the bottom and post can become saturated after a heavy downpour. The lock seems quite flimsy and it can be quite difficult to insert the key. It is a fairly small box but this is ideal for me as I only have a limited wall space between my front door and a large down pipe, but it accepts A4 envelopes fairly easily through the hinged flap. If the finish bright and shiny I will be well satisfied with my purchase.

A smart looking box, sleek and discreet which sits by the church Reception desk for messages. It is especially useful for items with personal information on, since for those a locked box is needed to meet GDPR/privacy requirements. People can fill in the message form with name and contact info and pop it in here without danger of it being seen by those who shouldn't see it.

The space for a label is big enough to say [short name] drop box but would be a bit small if you had a longer name.

We are delighted with it and so are our church members.

We purchased three units to be installed in the common entrance hall of the building containing three apartments we recently converted. They were finished in satin stainless, steel attractive and stylishly contemporary in appearance. When installed as a bank of three , lined up neatly with simple fixing.

Access to retrieve mail through the front opening face was easily obtained and re-closed, locked with the key specific for each mailbox. The letter boz was able to receive A4 envelope formats without folding or creasing.

The price was very reasonable and we are very satisfied.

I have only one caution which is for the suppliers to note. Certain of the edges exposed when a mailbox was open, felt sharp and could if improperly handled potentially inflict a cut in the skin.

I am very pleased with my post box . It looks stylish - people have commented on it looking smart and even asked from what company it was bought . The lock works well, unlike one I had previously and there is plenty of capacity for all my post . So far I have not seen any deterioration of the stainless steel , again whereas my previous one showed signs of rusting .

So , yes I would thoroughly recommend this post box .

Very pleased with the service we received from the company.The website was easy to use and had a wide variety of products, especially letter boxes. The ordering process was simple and we thought the delivery charges were appropriate as were the delivery times. We received the product within the timescale quoted to us and it was suitably boxed to prevent damage. We were very happy with the letter box, the website described it perfectly and showed a good representation of what the product was. It is a good size and we managed to fix it to the outside of our door with no problems. Loved the colour....a brushed stainless steel. It is easy to clean, a wipe with a damp cloth does and it has survived the north east weather well with no signs of rust. Overall we are really happy with the product and the service from the company and would recommend to others.

» Ask Question   

 
Can you please confirm that your Simplex post box is made of genuine STAINLESS STEEL.

I already own a letter box which has identical dimensions and appearance to yours but is made from GALVANISED steel and after 3 years use, is starting to rust.
Peter Tunstall, Bournemouth
This model is made from Stainless Steel. To ensure there is no chance of rust you would need to wipe the box down every now and again, especially in coastal areas.

To avoid this you might be better opting for a Brabantia post box. These models are lacquered and offer the best protection against the elements.

Would this post box be suitable as an internal free standing post box?
Anonymous
This post box is designed to be fastened to a brick wall and would easily fall over if it was left free standing. The Royal Black - Pillar Post Box may be a better option as this is specifically designed to be free standing.

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.

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
