Some tips on placement of mailboxes will help to minimize damage:
â€¢ Box number should be on the side of the box visible to approaching traffic or on the door of the mailbox when boxes are grouped.
â€¢ Group mailboxes whenever practical, especially at or near crossroads, at service turnouts, or at other places where a considerable number of boxes are located.
â€¢ Use an extended arm type of mailbox post (see picture below). This allows snowplows to sweep near or under boxes without damage to supports and provides easy access to the boxes by carrier and customers.
â€¢ Mailboxes should generally be installed at least 3 1/2 to 4 feet high. However, due to varying road and curb conditions, it is recommended that customers contact the postmaster or the Public Works Department prior to installing a mailbox to ensure proper placement.
