Mailbox Repairs and Security

The Best Security Solutions for Your Mailboxes

Community mailboxes for multi-tenant commercial and residential properties are a prime target for break-ins by thieves looking for cheques, credit cards, and any bit of information they can get to foster identity theft and other schemes.

Following a mailbox break-in, thieves will often come back again and again once the mailbox has been repaired and mail service has resumed. Upgrading your mailbox security is the only way to stop these break-ins.

In addition to repairing vandalized mailbox locks and doors, we custom fabricate high security mailbox enclosures.

Mailbox Enclosures Give You Rock Solid Security You Can Rely On

Solid Steel Construction

All welded steel construction with perforated steel faces reinforced with steel bar construction. Powder coated finish is available in black, gray/silver, or white. Custom fabrication ensures we can build an enclosure to fit your mailboxes, however and wherever they are installed.

High Security at Every Point

Every mailbox enclosure features, full-length anti-pry astragals on all doors, solid steel lock guards, and NRP hinges. Mailbox enclosures are the most proven deterrent against vandalism and mail/identity theft.

Dual Access

Our “door within a door” system ensures you do not have to manage access to your mailbox. The outer door is accessed by Canada Post using their own crown lock. The inner door is for your residents to access with their own key. This keeps your mailbox always accessible and always secure, day and night.

We Take Care of the Details

We maintain an excellent relationship with Canada Post and will arrange new crown locks for your enclosures, reinstallation of mailbox crown locks, and resumption of mail service once repairs are made and your mailbox is secure.

Other Mailbox Security Solutions

Although our high security enclosures are the best way to deter mailbox vandalism and mail theft, there are some other solutions available for specific situations.

  • For Indoor Mailboxes: Depending on the type of mailboxes you have, we can sometimes retrofit the main doors with an internal security upgrade kit. These kits are custom fabricated and strengthen the latching mechanism that holds the main door accessed by Canada Post secure.
  • For Pedestal Mounted Mailboxes: We can sometimes relocate your mailboxes or replace them with a wall mounted option. This can increase security greatly for older mailboxes when the main door is at the back of the box, or for boxes in a location that is not well lit. You will need Canada Post’s permission to move your mailboxes to a new location on your property.
  • For Mailboxes Installed in an Alcove: In addition to mailbox enclosures, we also make custom fabricated gates, doors and alcove entrances that can make the entire area where your mailboxes are located more secure.
