I wanted a large rural mailbox and this one fit the bill. I couldn't find one in white so I ordered this one in gray and painted it white and painted the flag blue. I have no idea how long it will last but I'm hoping the extra layers of paint will keep it from rusting. I ordered it online and it arrived promptly at my nearest Home Depot store.
I spent an awful lot of time online looking at every mailbox made, I called mfg.'s and asked questions. This is best mailbox out there unless you need to have a locking mailbox. It holds that large Amazon package that you just don't feel like going to post office to pick up when you get home from work. My final thoughts: wax it every 6 months with automotive wax, and if you live on a road where snowplows pound it with huge amounts of snow(don't even talk to me if you live in California or Florida) then take the time to build a simple protective shield of boards on two posts or even a hinged a-frame to go over it, and it will stay like new for a long long time.
This mailbox was the exact size of my old one and fit perfectly on the platform. I had it installed within 20 minutes. The directions were quite clear on how to adjust the spring for keeping the lid closed. I'd upload a file but my street numbers are already painted on it. I like my privacy
Every mailbox on our street was destroyed last winter because of the plows. My big mailbox needed a replacement. I went with gray instead of black for a change. Well built but the metal is soft - not like the original from the 1980s! It should last for a while. No complaints though. If you need a really big box for packages so you don't have to go to the post office, this is it.
My husband gets a lot of medicine in the mail and the post office has a time delivering it. This much larger mailbox makes it easier on us as well as the mailman. Plenty of room for boxes of all sizes. Saves us having to go that 14 miles to the post office to get those meds!
Pros: Sturdy, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Durable, Nice Design
The mailbox came with the top of the door bent. My husband hammered it back so that the door would close. I had to bend the handle back in shape so that I could open the door. Works great now. Product needs to be packed better. Especially around the door. I did not have time to return or reorder so we just hammered and bent it back in place.
Very sturdy, well built, larger size is great for accepting small packages. Fully assembled ready to mount, with EZ mounting on an 11 ½ inch base plate with four mounting holes. I’m very happy with this mailbox.
I love our new Jumbo mail box. it is perfect because I send many flat rate boxes. for my tile business No more worries about boxes getting wet in the rain, and I don't have to drive to the post office. I was able to fit two flat rate boxes in it at once. The mail man even wrote us a note about our terrific new mail box!
Much bigger than I expected. Great for small packages: DVDs, books, etc. But the flag is smaller than the flag on my old regular sized box. I'd like one that I can see across my yard, as this box is on the outside of my gate. Also, for the price the metal could be thicker. I dented it in a couple places while drilling to install my house number on the side.
Postwoman was having to deliver to my house ever other day and now I don't have to leave the gate open any more because they all fit nicely in my jumbo mailbox. Great for people with a long or gated driveways!

Review 13 for Jumbo Heavy-Duty Post-Mount Mailbox
Overall happy with the size, unhappy with the quality
I needed a mailbox that would accommodate shipping out multiple large packages at once. The size of this box fit my needs perfectly however the quality is severely lacking. Out of the box the front doesn't stay shut and directions prompt you to bend the miniscule catch on the backside of the door in order for it to even somewhat stay shut. However, the metal the box is constructed from is way too thin for the size & height so even once mounted it's very unstable feeling & wobbles around which causes the door to come loose and fall open.
The second day it was up, the door flopped back open as the mail lady was pulling away and it hit against the side of her vehicle and torqued the whole box slightly out of whack... after bending the catch further it's still a 50/50 chance most days whether it stays closed or not. My husband is going to attach a magnetic catch on the door & inside the top of the box in an attempt to keep it securely closed.
It's a great size & matches my gray house nicely but it's just not sturdy at all...
One of the few that comes in a light color, and yet is the jumbo or oversized version. Living in the desert Arizona, a light colored mial box is wise for the times when mail gets left in the box for the afternoon.
Extra large capacity, color gray very unique. Assembled without difficulty & well made. Neighbors are intrigued since can't buy locally; tell them "Home Depot." Would definitely purchase again if needed.
