Rules For Your Mailbox

Q: Are there any rules about how to build a mailbox?

A: As far as the aesthetic design of the mailbox, you should check with municipal codes and your homeowner’s association, if you have one, for any restrictions in your area. As far as the mailbox dimensions and proximity to the street, according to the US Postal service your local postmaster must approve the location of your mailbox. This typically means that a roadside mailbox must be located where a carrier can reach inside without leaving the truck. That means positioning it about 41 to 45 in. off the ground and back about 6 to 8 in. from the curb. Visit www.ups.com for more information.
