Placing a new mailbox

Here are some helpful guidelines to follow when installing a mailbox:

  • Position your mailbox 41″ to 45″ above ground level.
  • Place your mailbox 6″ to 8″ back from the curb. If you do not have a raised curb, contact your local postmaster for guidance.
  • Put your house or apartment number on the mailbox.
  • If your mailbox is on a different street from your house or apartment, put your full street address on the box.
  • Mailboxes take a beating from the weather, so we recommend an annual mailbox checkup to avoid damage to your mail or difficulty identifying your address.
  • Tighten loose hinges on the door.
  • Take care of rusty or loose parts.
  • Replace missing or faded house numbers.
  • Keep the path to your mailbox clear.

During snow removal operations sometimes mailboxes are damaged due to improper installation. In an effort to prevent damage to your mailbox, please see the following USPS installation instructions. It is important to note that both the height and the distance from the curb or shoulder measurements should be followed accordingly.
