Mailbox Sets

Mailbox sets are essentially all-in-one packages. They include the mailbox as well as the mounting post. However, many of these require you to assemble them – especially the locking mailbox model. Furthermore, there are numerous types of elegantly designed box and post sets that are available at your local hardware store.

Wall Mounted Mail Boxes

Wall mounted boxes are typically installed by the front entry door of your home. Now, installing these boxes may require the use of mounting screws, a drill, a screwdriver, and anchors (depending on the model). They’ve grown in popularity over the years and range in styles from modern to Victorian.


Novelty boxes add a personal flair to your yard. Many of these mailboxes are custom-made from a variety of manufacturers. For instance, some of them will resemble animals like cats or dogs while others can look like a fire truck or even a college team mascot. If you’re looking for a specific type of box that’ll give your house that added touch, a novelty box might be right for you. And, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, there are thousands of companies that are willing to custom craft a box to your liking.
