You Kids Get Away From My Mailbox!

Monday, November 9, 2009

Your mailbox may be the first visible sign of your home, so make a good first impression. There are many beautiful designs and styles to match any home or office. If you live in an area where the postman still delivers mail to your door, there are several wall mounted mailboxes to reflect your personal style.

If you've never taken the time to see how many different mail boxes you could choose from, you need to visit and see what you've been missing. Mailboxes are also a great conversation piece, and people may even remember your home as the one with the unique mailbox!

For some reason, it's become a time-honored tradition for teenagers to drive by and smash a mailbox with a bat. I don't know where this tradition came from or why some kids think it's fun to ruin other people's property, but I found a mailbox that is designed to stand up to abuse. It's called a Strong Box, and it's guaranteed to be free of functional damage due to vandals for two years. This does not include damage from gunshots or explosions.

Take this opportunity to make the statement that you want to make about yourself and your home with a beautiful mail box. Select a box with a painting of your favorite animal, or choose from a style that reflects your personality such as a barn, log cabin, treasure chest, or perhaps you prefer a more traditional style for use in your place of business. When you see how much fun it can be to use a unique mailbox, you may never look at mailboxes the same way again!
