Rated 2 out of 5Â by Dennis Look good for awhile
These boxes look good but will not stand up to the corrosion test. Aluminium is not corrosion treated underneath the powder coat so any moisture that migrates underneath the black top coat is trapped and sets up a corrosion cell. No pretreatment is done and the corrosion cell breaks the bond between the topcoat and the base material. To properly treat the corrosion the mailbox must be disassembled and Plastic Media or sandblasted and then treated correctly. Correct treatment consists of a alodine treatment to the base metal or applying a chromated primer prior to top coating. I come from an aircraft corrosion background and know the proper way to treat aluminium and this product does not display proper treatment. The mailbox will last 3-5 years prior to corrosion popping through the powder/top coat. At that time your choices are as follow: a. Live with it until the corrosion get to the point it is unusable. b. Spray it with cheap paints for cosmetic reasons. c. Replace it with a plastic box that won't corrode but will suffer from ultraviolet breakdown.

Bought along with the matching post. Not only does it look great, but it is very sturdy. Should have no problem holding up against the elements.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bluebird Expensive, but wanted a package deal for newspaper and mail.
Good size, heavy sturdy, nice looking like the brown.

I was very impressed with the quality and construction of this mailbox. My neighbors are a little PO'd since I set the bar fairly high as they look at their deteriorating mailboxes.

This mailbox is better than I anticipated. I was apprehensive about the magnetic closure but it is strong and effective. The box itself is very sturdy and easy to attach. I also purchased the newspaper holder which is equally top-notch.
