If your receptacle has seen better days, it’s time to invest in something new. Your mailbox is the link between your household, all the confidential personal information within it, and the outside world. It’s paramount that your mailbox offers the security necessary for your lifestyle and looks good doing it. Below, we’ve rounded up the 10 best mailboxes in every design style, privacy style and price point.

Treat yourself to one of these top-rated mailboxes to enjoy a good mail day in approximately 5-7 business days. But, first, read our mailbox shopping tips below.

Shop for Security: Keep your private documents and pricey packages safe from sticky fingers with a locking mailbox. There are serval locking mechanisms on the market, such as keyed locks, wafer locks, baffle doors and anti-pick systems. Locking mailboxes are available in wall-mounted, post-mounted and freestanding variations to best suit your needs and style.

Consider Location: Determine where you plan to install your new mailbox. Will your mailbox be open to the elements (and passersby) at the end of your driveway or wall-mounted by your front door under the covered porch? Use the location as your guide to select the best material for your mailbox and the privacy levels it requires for your peace of mind.

Find Your Style: Embrace your architecture with a mailbox that shares similar lines and finishes. Modern and midcentury homes will look dapper with sleek, horizontal mailboxes, while a traditional Georgian home will wow with a freestanding columned design.
