Mailbox Installation Procedure
Installation procedure will include removing your existing mailbox and post. Any concrete or existing anchoring system in the ground will also be removed. In some cases, Mailbox Remedies will be able to use the existing hole for the new mailbox installation. The hole will need to be widened to a 16 inch diameter and will need to be at a depth of 24 inches. In other cases, when the new mailbox post or mailbox is larger or smaller than the existing, the hole may need to be relocated slightly back or forward. Once the hole is complete, the mailbox post will be cemented in ground. The mailbox post will be level and meet the requirements of the USPS. The new mailbox will be assembled and attached to the new mailbox post. The top of the hole will be filled with dirt and topped with your existing sod that was removed. Estimated installation time of 1-2 hours.
