Knowing the TRUE cost of your mailbox can save you time and money.
The cost of a Mailbox can at times seem expensive however when comparing various mailboxes you need to take in several factors including the materials it is made from.
Mailboxes that you buy from a hardware store that look like they are good value for money have additional costs. It is vital that you install your mailbox properly according to instructions. You may need to set the mailbox in concrete or sit on a base plate. Does the mailbox match your place? Do you need to paint/render the mailbox? Adding a mailbox that suits your home enhances your street appeal. You will need numbers so the postie and your friends can find you. Depending on the size and material of the numbers the costs can add up. All these things just add to the cost of a mailbox.
The cost of a brick mailbox can also be very expensive. Using leftover bricks may only save you approximately $100.00. Many bricklayers overcharge for a mailbox. To do the job properly they need to visit the site three times – foundations, build the mailbox and install the pier caps and add numbers. You also need to factor in the time that someone is at your place. Do you need to be there?
Things just don’t last these days. This is also true with the traditional letterbox on a post. The material used for these letterboxes is often of low quality. They rust away within 5 years.
We often hear about mailboxes being stolen. If you are going to spend a few hundred on a mailbox you will want it to be secured and last a long time. Our mailboxes are made from solid reinforced concrete weighing in at over 250kgs.
On several occasions we have replaced mailboxes that have blown over in the wind. Again choosing the right mailbox and getting it installed properly can save time and money for more important things in life.
Searching for a good long lasting mailbox can be confusing and misleading.
Doing a price comparison from the beginning can give you the answer you need to make sure you purchase the right mailbox for the right price in the beginning. Spend your money wisely and get something that not only looks good, lasts a long time, suits the look of your home, and is practical for your home. Most of all spend less and have someone do it for you.
