We were so excited that we found a mailbox post that fits our home colors. The online ordering of the product was the easy part. When it arrived I opened the box and to our surprise it was perfect until I took it out of the box. The base was cracked and had to be returned to the local Home Depot store. The staff handle it with care and fully understands what the customer wants. When they tried to reorder it, it was no longer in stock. They spent time calling their customer care center and said it would be back in stock July 1st 2016 and we should get an E-Mail that it is back in stock. Well, as of this writing (July 26, 2016) it is not back in stock. DISAPPOINTING Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gary Looks wonderful and real after installation.
Installed this over this weekend, 05/30/2015 and 05/31/2015. Purchased a 6" x 6" x 8' pressure treated post and two - 60 lb. bags of concrete. Dug the post hole 4 ' deep by 10 diameter which allowed 4 ' of the post above the ground since the instructions said that no more than 50" above grade. Mixed the concrete, placed around the post and let sat overnight. The next day, finished filling the hole with dirt and tamped. The 6" x 6" was super sturdy. Placed the stacked stone mailbox post over the 6" x 6" and fastened the mailbox shelf to the mailbox post thru to the 6" x 6" with the screws in the package after drilling holes with masonry drill bits. Attached the curve brace to the shelf and attached it to the mailbox post (had to use a spacer between the curve brace and the mailbox post to keep the shelf level). Attached the mailbox to the shelf using the wood screws included and chalked the top to the post. Everything went well just like the instructions said. Everything arrived to the house on schedule and in prefect condition. Could not find any cracks, chips, discoloration. No missing pieces. Could not have asked for anything better. If you use a oversize mailbox (optional), consider the width of the mailbox versus the width of the mailbox post. I used a regular size mailbox since I did not want the mailbox to be wider than the post. Also, placed the shelf at 41" from the ground due to keeping the top of mailbox below the cap on the mailbox post. Would I recommend this item. Yes, yes. Do not rush installing this. I had my grandson (age 14) doing most of the work in order to teach him about being a handyman when he goes up. And he did wonderful and it is square, leveled and solid. If the post last, I will be happy camper.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by js739 curb appeal is pleasing - however beware
The unit is as advertised, visually pleasing, however the materials used to construct parts of the unit are found to be lacking. The cap has corner chips and hairline cracks. The column has separation cracks at the side joints. The polymer support (plastic) is not an acceptable material to screw the mailbox to. The screws have no substance to grip. The customer will have to rely on "creative engineering" to attach the mailbox to the support. I am overall pleased with the look of the unit, however I am suspect as to how long the unit will last due to construction and materials used.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Russell very nice product
The post was what I wanted. The only downside is that is was a bit more difficult to install than the directions implied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Natalie Great Product with wonderful curb appeal
Purchased this mailbox set and had no issues. Yes, the fiberglass post (stone) will chip if you hit it with a hammer or other hard/sharp object, but if you treat it with care, there are no issues. I've had several compliments from neighbors and friends, and the stone does look very real. Compared to the real thing which would costs upwards of $1000, this is a great deal for $200 and MUCH easier to install than mortaring stone in place. Be aware, however, that the set does NOT include the mailbox which is a separate expense.
