A New Mailbox

Ours was hit this last weekend. We noticed it after the plow had been by. It was crushed on the sides and on the front and was uneven on the base. So my husband called on Monday and told them about it. Today, they came and put a new one on.

My daughter had this problem in her other house and her mailbox was down more than it was ever upright. Glad yours was replaced quickly

You are fortunate that they replaced the mailbox for you. I am not sure that they do that here. I have seen many mailboxes destroyed.

@ElusiveButterfly It's usually not easy to get on replaced. Now I just have to see if it's as big as the one we had on there before.

@ElusiveButterfly It's a nice one. So we might return the one we bought at Tractor Supply.

We don't worry but that here, but we do have problems with people who ride down the road and swing baseball bats at the metal ones.Ours isn't metal and so far we've not been hit.

@AbbyGreenhill Our box is galvanized metal and the post is steel. If they hit that, then they really have a dent, unless it's the plow.

@Susan2015 Our last house we had a brick one and no one messed with that.

Was it a city plow? Nice that they put the new one in for you.

@DWDavis Nope, it was a county plow.

I hope it didn't cost you anything other than the annoyance of it all.

Here in England we do not use mailboxes. We have a letterbox in the front door so that mail can be delivered directly to the house.
