Brabantia B110 Postbox, 7 April 2012
Purchased black post box from Amazon. Firstly Amazon, good price as i had done all the leg work and found them to be cheapest. Secondly the first one came damaged again no problem printed a returns note from on-line and sent it back via post office no charge. Finally received replacement next day, so very good service.
I had bought a couple of different ones from Argos but not happy with the sizes. This letter box i have had over a month an have had it crammed with booklets and letters some days and Mr postman didn't have to fold the A4's which is what i like. The top opening is what makes it easy for him to insert my mail. Site it slightly higher say about your chest height this restricts any opportunists trying to put a hand in from the top, I informed Brabantia that the keys were a bit rough and again no problem i was sent replacement.
I wanted the lid to be self closing after the postie so i put some oil on the hinges of the lid inside and out this has worked time after time.
the only negative for me is a personal thing but i ordered a black letter box and what slightly spoils it is that the two tiny washers on the door hinges are white and is noticeable they could have inserted black washers, but that's aesthetic does not hinder the quality or working. Oh also i used my own raw plugs (quality) and longer screws.
overall pleased its wide but narrow so doesn't stick out too much and quality box.
