We had just moved to a new property on a retirement complex and needed some form of item to use outside of our home to collect the mail that is delivered on site. The item we bought was easily fixed to the outside fence and as it is lockable it provided us with much more security. We have just been away on holiday and our mail has been delivered as normal. There was no build up of mail inside the property to show that the property was not occupied at the time which is a good thing and the capacity of the mail box was sufficient for the mail that we had received over an 11 day period. The lock is hidden and therefore not easily visible from the road side and is mail box is deep enough so that anyone who manages to look inside is unable to see any mail that may be there inside the box.

My purchase was based not only on previous reviews, but essentially its appearance was a priority. In some ways this post box suffers from style over substance, which is a shame because it looks good with its slim body and curved lines. However, the construction material is a bit lightweight, yet so far (approx six months old), the contents have remained dry despite some very inclement weather. the black finish, to match the front door, was also an important factor,and so far, there is no evidence of the paint flaking.As we had very specific requirements for a post box,for us, this was the best available and to date we are satisfied with its performance. It was also good to be able to buy relatively locally.

The Tweed Black - Steel Post Box exceeded all expextations. It was delivered promptly and safely to my designated place (not my post box as I didn't have one!) and installation was easy enough. The build quality and design are phenomenal. It looks elegant and has masses of storage space. I have already recommended it to a number of friends and family members. I would not hesitate to purchase another one but have a strong feeling that this won't be necessary as it appears that this one will last! Congratulations G2 Post Boxesa truly magnificent product. Best Regards Al

This looks nice but the metal is flimsy and can be bent by hand. Also its possible to reach in through the flap and take A4 mail without the key. Doesn't do the required job of keeping your mail safe. And its not cheap.

I looked around for ages for a post box that was different to the norm and came across this one. I had to wait over three months for delivery but it was worth it. It looks really swish.

It's fairly well built and looks weather resistant, but I have yet to go through a British winter.

It was a bit awkward to screw to the wall due to the placement of the holes and we did scratch it slightly doing so.

It looks great, slightly bigger than expected, but it has a very large capacity, easily fits newspapers, catalogues and general mail.

Very happy with this purchase, would recommend this item.

The post box is a good size and will take A4 letters easily. I'm also impressed with the quality of the finish as the last post box we had started to rust at the edges and hinges. This post box doesn't have a mark on it after the few months it's been installed.

The locking mechanism is solid and is normally hidden behind the hinged top so the overall look of the post box is just a smooth finish.

Purchased this as I have had a composite door installed and did not want to have a letter box opener in the door. Came across this after searching and decided to order as I felt this is perfect as I do receive a4 size mail so will not have any issues.

Spoke to them over the phone to a very helpful young lady. Ease purchase and prompt deliver. I will also be looking at ordering other items which are reasonably priced and have recommended the sight to my friends and family to have a look. I rate them 5 star.

Fixing screws not fit for purpose. Too thin and soft. Two screws snapped when fixing to masonry. If masonry not exactly flat then body of box warps causing flap to not sit correcly when closed. Overall ok but also expensive product. Lead time estimated at1 month, actual was 4 months. Paid when ordered so went with it as kept being informed another month for delivery and so on until delivery.

The Tweed Black Steel post box is exactly as described in the website. It was well packaged for transit and dark ed un- damaged It was easy to fit. It looks very smart next to the Front door. The design is very sleek and modern. We particularly like the curved lines of the design as it allows rain to run off, rather than pool on the top of the box. Another excellent feature is the concealed lock. All in all an excellent product. It has not yet been tested through a British winter but we are hoping it will stand up well against the elements. We would recommend this product.

Is this waterproof ? My current post box is letting rainwater in.
Liz Shaw, Elgin
This post box is listed as weather and rust resistant however it is not fully water or rust proof and this is true of any post box. The degree of weather or rust resistance is dependent on how exposed the post box is to the elements. As the post boxes have deposit apertures and moving parts there is a chance that water may ingress via these points if they are overly exposed.

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.

  • 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.
