A Beginners Guide to Home Mailboxes


Visitors: 531

Everyone in the United States gets mail. This means that every one in the United States needs a mailbox. If you are in need of a mailbox, or if you just want to purchase a new mailbox for your home, you may want some information about your options for home mailboxes.

There are two types of home mailboxes. The most common is a curbside mailbox. But some people also have a wall mounted mailbox. These can be placed directly next to your front door. They sit either vertically or horizontally.

The most common home mailboxes used are the metal ones. These are inexpensive to purchase, however, they are prone to rusting. If you do not want a rusting problem, you can purchase one made of vinyl. The vinyl mailboxes are also less prone to fading, chipping, or cracking. But they are a bit more expensive to purchase.

Some of the least expensive home mailboxes are the plastic ones. They are highly durable, weather proof, rust proof, and very light weight. Some are even made to be indestructible because they are made with double walled plastic.

The last type is security mail boxes. These are vandal proof and they come with a locking mechanism. This prevents someone from stealing your mail and from damaging the mailbox. These are usually quite expensive to purchase, but sometimes needed.

The above were some of the most common choices you have for purchasing home mailboxes. There are many options to choose from. Decide how much you want to spend and what type of mailbox best suits your needs. This way you can easily find what you are looking for and be one step closer to getting your mail!
