The Advantages of Cluster Mailboxes for Businesses

As a small business owner or a commercial property owner, mail delivery has to be a priority. Your tenants or employees need to feel safe about their personal mail.

A common solution to this is a cluster mailbox, which comes in a variety of models. You can find ones that are USPS approved and offer very high-security.

If you're not quite sold on these multiple unit mailboxes, then we're here to sway your opinion. They're customizable, convenient to use, and affordable.

We'll get into all that. Here are some advantages of choosing cluster mailboxes for your commercial property.

Cluster Mailboxes Offer High Security

Let's start with their security features, as that's what's most important to your user. One reason you should opt for multiple unit mailboxes is that it's the safest choice.

Some of these boxes are made of heavy-duty extruded aluminum. With stainless steel hinges, you won't have to worry about break-ins.

Also, you'll see that some offer a special package delivery box, in addition to the main slot. In a commercial property, you can't trust that someone won't take your items if they're left outside.

A cluster mailbox will put you at ease knowing your tenants' packages won't wind up missing. It will save you quite the trouble, and the others will be satisfied with the extra safety features.

They Look Professional and Appealing

In a commercial setting, it can get messy having your employees or tenants share a mailbox. That's asking for a security risk, as well, in addition to being ineffective.

When you have to purchase individual mailboxes, they can look out-of-place. They're large and gaudy and can be quite the eyesore.

Cluster mailboxes are an inexpensive fix to this problem. They look very neat and unify everyone's mail into one central location.

They come in a variety of colors from black to beige. You can also pick between different decorative styles that best match your taste. Whether you're going for a modern look or one that's more classic, the options are there.

No Crossover With Other People's Mail

Multiple unit mailboxes prevent the need for people to interfere with other's mail. When you have a shared mailbox, you're risking that your mail will go through many hands.

As an employee, tenant or whoever, that's not very reassuring. They should trust their mail isn't going to disappear. That happens through minimal contact.

With a cluster mailbox, the only one handling the mail is the post office worker. There isn't a need for people to have to sort through to find their specific piece.

For that reason, they're also convenient. If you're in a larger building, it can be a real time-consumer having to go through an entire mailbox of envelopes.

Although that may be the cheapest option, it will cost you in the long run. You can save yourself both time and money by picking a multiple unit box.

Different Slot Sizes are Available

When it comes to mail, there isn't a one size fits all option. That's because the type of mail that someone receives varies depending on the location.

If you're at home, you're obviously going to receive larger packages and more mail in general. But, a work mailbox may only receive a few mailed papers every so often.

Or, perhaps at your company, you frequently see inbound and outbound mailing. The point is that you need to consider the size of the slot you'll need.

Cluster mailboxes can be customized to fit your requirements. Again, they also usually have a parcel box, in addition to the primary slots. So, if you get a nice mix of packages and paper mail, you can pick up both in one location.

The Ability to Send Outgoing Mail

Many tenants or employees gripe that they're only able to receive incoming mail. We all want the ability to conveniently send our own mail out.

A cluster mailbox makes that happen. In addition to the primary slots and parcel box, there's also a space for people to drop their departing mail.

Your company will be thanking you for this. No one wants to walk or drive far to send something off.

Having a spot for this in someone's workspace makes their lives a lot easier. This is especially true if you live in an area with inclement weather. This may seem like a minor perk, but for someone who has kids or pets, this could be a real advantage.

The Right Ones are USPS Approved

If you don't take our word for it, wouldn't you trust the United States Postal Service? Cluster mailboxes are supported by the USPS for several reasons.

For a mail carrier, they're extremely efficient. They have the ability to easily open all units in one centralized location.

This prevents them from having to making several stops throughout your office. You can also fill out tags to hang, so your carrier can easily distribute mail.

USPS also advocates for the use of cluster boxes because of their security features. They feel much more comfortable leaving your mail in its hands because they know it won't get taken.
