Ensure Safe Secure Postal Mail Delivery

Most of us don't give our mailbox a second thought - I'm talking about the PHYSICAL real-world box where the postman delivers your "snail-mail" - something we take for granted, until:

- A couple of Halloweens past pranksters tore the metal mailslot out of my front door. Had I known about Mailbox Exchange I would have had a much easier time replacing it! The installation of proper equipment is required for delivery service, as my neighbor discovered after his wall mount mailbox disappeared from the side of his house! He had to drive to the post office to pick up his check!

- If you live in a rural or suburban area, your roadside mailbox could be hit by a vehicle, crushed by a snowplow or damaged by vandals! Subject to state laws and regulations, a curbside mailbox must be placed to allow safe and convenient delivery by carriers without leaving their vehicles.

At our summer retreat in Mahopac we keep a brand-new "spare" mailbox in the basement, ready-to-go should anything happen to our roadside receptacle. Better to have an not need than to need and not have. (Customers should discuss the types of approved equipment permitted for their structures with their postmaster before purchasing and installing delivery equipment.)

Mailbox may refer to:

  • Letter box, copper box, or other sturdy material compartment, or slot for incoming postal deliveries
  • Post box, a physical box for outgoing postal deliveries
I recommend Mailboxixchange, a distributor of high quality residential mailboxes and commercial mailboxes, with over 2500 mailbox and curbside decor products. (Order Toll Free at certain times of day; Order Online Anytime. Visit their website for details).

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
