The USPS works in overdrive to ensure all mail is safe and secure. But they can’t control what happens after they put your mail into your mailbox. With 700 million pieces getting delivered daily, that’s a lot of chances for something to get damaged or stolen.
That’s why having secure mailboxes is important. In this post, we’re going over the best mailboxes on the market that provide the security you need.
Finding the Most Secure Mailboxes
If you live in a condo, apartment or new housing development, you already use a cluster mailbox or cluster box unit (CBU). In fact, centralized delivery is the preferred method by the USPS these days.
Many people consider CBUs the most secure mailboxes since only the resident or business has access to their locking mailbox. The postal carrier opens a panel and places the mail in each recipient’s designated compartment. Then, they close and lock the panel.
Not even the USPS has a copy of your key. Talk about safe and secure!
But not every community has embraced the use of CBUs. If your home isn’t new construction, you still have a curbside or wall-mount mailbox. You can still buy freestanding or locking mailboxes for your front door to replace your current one for added security.
Here are the best locking mailboxes on the market right now:
