June 1, 2017 – As you are probably aware, many of your neighbors have replaced their mailboxes with locking mailboxes, and we encourage everyone to consider following suit. There are some things to consider, however, in replacing your mailbox.
The post office will not allow you to change the location of your mailbox. If your mailbox, for instance, is on a post that is shared with 2 or 3 other mailboxes, your new mailbox must be installed on that same post as well.
Another consideration is to get a locking mailbox with a big enough opening so that whatever you expect to have mailed to you – large envelopes, prescription refills, etc., can fit through the opening.
