Mailbox Installation

General Guidelines
Mailbox installations are regulated by the United States Postal Service (USPS) with general guidelines regarding placement of mail boxes.

As you are looking at your home from the street, your mail box should be on the right side of your driveway.

Your mailbox should be 42 to 44 inches tall from the pavement surface to the bottom of your mailbox.


Your mailbox should be 2 inches behind the face of the curb and gutter.

The numbers on your mailbox should be at least 1 inch in height and on the approach side of the mail box.
