Mailbox and Mailbox Lock Styles We Service
With a variety of mailboxes and mailbox locks to look into, you might feel overwhelmed by the thought of having to make a decision. To come to your help, here is a quick overview of some of the most popular mailbox options to choose from.
- Free-standing mailboxes can be mounted on dedicated posts or pedestals and they are popular in rural areas.
- Wall-mounted mailboxes are located to the front of a house. They are popular in urban and suburban regions and they require the mail carriers to physically walk up to them in order to deliver your mail.

Mailbox Lock Change Services
Whether you are a landlord in the process of evicting a problematic tenant, you have moved somewhere new and you are not sure if you have been handed out all copies, or your old mailbox cannot provide you with a satisfying level of protection any more because of advanced wear-out, you need our residential mailbox change services. A vulnerable mailbox lock is one that will automatically jeopardise your confidential mail and potentially attract identity theft issues. While your mailbox locks might not sound like a critical issue to concern yourself with or invest in, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
Be sure to look for the physical signs of a damaged mailbox, the way the lock is acting, whether the key is sliding in smoothly or if it tends to frequently get jammed. If the key feels sticky or rough inside the lock, you may be dealing with a key or keyway issue. These problems are normally caused by salty air or heat that will eventually warp the key and keyhole and damage their original shape.
You may also have a problem turning the key inside the keyhole, which may be an indicator of a faulty mechanism problem, a rusty or worn down cylinder, or caked pins affected by dust and debris. Noticing any of these issues should be treated like a red flag of a potential problem that could soon escalate into something more serious. Have one of our locksmiths tackle this problem for you on the spot.
Mailbox Lock Installation Services
Provided you are still able to access your mailbox and open it, the new lock installation procedure will run a lot smoother. Mailboxes usually feature locks that can be removed with a lot of ease and this means their replacement should also be fairly easy. Please keep in mind the fact that the ease of lock replacement does not automatically mean you are confronted with a security risk.
On the other hand, a missing key or broken lock will make the new mailbox lock installation process more complicated and time-consuming. This does not mean, however, that expert home locksmiths will have any issues completing the task with flying colours. Residential mailbox installation may sometimes require our technicians to drill the lock. This will only cause damage to the lock, not the mailbox itself.
The standard installation requires our technicians to place the new lock into the corresponding spot in the mailbox and use a wrench to screw it on from the interior. Variations of these steps may occur depending on the exact model and brand that you have chosen for your mailbox.
Finally, our locksmiths will proceed to assess the new lock, test it and make sure it is working properly.
