Designer Advice:

One of the best double mailbox post ideas is to pick an option that stores both your mail and your subscriptions for magazines and newspapers. Having a daily newspaper delivered can leave your yard looking tacky and tempt trespassers eager to save a few bucks by swiping from you.

Buying Guide

There are various reasons why you may need to buy a multiple mailbox post. Here is some more information about the designs available and which ones might be most suitable for you.

One of the uses of a multiple mailbox post relates to community housing, where there may be estates with multiple homes and there is no need to install individual mailbox posts for each house. Alternatively, you might own or live in a property where one building is divided into several apartments or flats. In this case, multiple mailbox posts outside the building are ideal for ensuring that everybody is able to receive and access their own mail.

Wooden posts with mailboxes

This design works well if there are four or five homes situated in a remote area or in a location that is difficult to access. Rather than forcing couriers and the mailman to come all the way to your front door, you can position a multiple mailbox post at the end of the road and affix several boxes to it. You will need two wooden posts positioned vertically, and then one post which fits across them horizontally. You can then nail the mailboxes to the horizontal wooden post to create an efficient and practical set of mailboxes for you and your neighbors.

Cast iron multiple mailbox post

A sturdy cast iron post is installed into the ground, and is able to withstand almost all weathers. On each side of the cast iron post are two mailboxes – securely fixed and with the respective neighbors' house numbers painted or identified in another way. Curved iron beams extend from mid-way down the post – these act as a support frame for the mailboxes which are positioned on this unit. In some cases, there are small colored flags on the mailboxes to either add some color and interest, or simply to distinguish between the mailboxes.

Long wooden post with multiple mailboxes

A long horizontal post which is around 15-20 feet in length is able to hold enough mailboxes for the entire neighborhood. You may find that you need to buy a multiple mailbox post which will fit 30-40 mailboxes. With this design, there is either a long horizontal post or two horizontal posts which are next to each other. There are around 4-8 vertical posts, which ensure the whole unit is sturdy enough to maintain its practical uses. White paint is often used, since this isn't too bold and blends well with many neighborhoods which have white windows and doors. The mailboxes themselves are often difficult colors, with some neighborhoods able to choose their own mailboxes, and others being assigned a certain color.

Like with many other items of furniture, you can look for feature pieces in order to make them stand out from the rest or add some extra interesting detail. Some multiple mailbox posts have animals, such as horses, engraved or created from iron or wood. For longer posts, there is normally more than one feature piece, and so you may see duplication along the post.

The house number on a mailbox must be at least 1 inch tall and positioned on the front or flag side of the mailbox. The door or slot must be at the level of 41 to 45 inches from the ground.
