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 arriv...

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 ...

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

Does this work as a free standing news paper box or must it be wall mounted?
Sheila higgins, Morecambe
You could use this box as a free standing box. However, this box includes pre-drilled holes in the back, designed to be securely mounted to a brick wall.

How does the Thames Black differ from the Tamar Black?
Andrew
The difference between the Thames and Tamar post boxes is that the Thames post box has a bronze "Newspapers" plaque fitted to the front where as the Tamar does not.

is this item definately waterproof?
marion, kent
No, the unit does have a sloping lid to help keep rain water out but it is not classed as rainwater proof, only weather and rust resistant. However if you are looking for a waterproof post box I can highly recommend a unit from the Brabantia range Brabantia - B100 Black Post Box
