Considering purchasing your own post box, but not sure which one to choose? Here are a few factors to help you find the most suitable post box for your needs.
Post boxes come in a variety of shapes and sizes. What type of post do you receive? Does your post box need to be big enough to hold newspapers and small packages, or do you tend to receive only letters by post?
Where will you be keeping your post box? This will have an affect on the size, material and style of post box you can invest in. Will you fix it to your fence outside, door or maybe a sheltered wall?
Post boxes also come in a variety of materials, stainless steel post boxes will be able to survive adverse weather conditions, the material won’t rust and the colour won’t fade. Plastic post boxes are also very durable and weather resistant; plastic boxes come in a variety of colours (including red, blue, black and green) to suit your home.
The prices of post boxes really do vary, depending on the material, size and design. There is something to suit every budget, from budget indoor boxes (under £30) to designer American style mail boxes.
You can purchase a mail box online and have it delivered straight to your home, all that’s left is for you to put it and wait for your post man to arrive!
