Our cedar mailboxes date back more than fifteen years and many of them are showing signs of age. Some of the problems are rotted posts, rusting doors, and cracked and peeling paint.
A committee was formed to develop a remediation plan. It consists of Suzie Severson, and Sayed Ahmed.
Local is attractive because of no shipping cost to Ann Arbor. Still, we will have to pick up items and move them to our site.
Fingerle gave us a quote for mailboxes. The price does not include installation. In many cases mailboxes can be ganged together to reduce the number of posts. No newspaper box is included here.
This mailbox looks and feels extremely durable. Looks even more attractive in-person.
Delivery: approx. 3 weeks
Orders starting at $2500 are routed through their Pro Department where they will quoted with a discount (Sharon 734-975-4783).
Double, Triple and Quadruple Configurations with newspaper boxes
Another possibility is to try to take the Home Depot Mailbox below and fit it to the parts from Salsbury Industries (motivation is that HD mailbox is half of salsbury price yet still made of a durable looking cast aluminum).
Quotes should be for the following:
Currently, there are eleven double mailboxes, four triple mailboxes, and a single mailbox. We can combine 2009 Tibbits with 2019/2029 to turn one of the doubles into a triple.
The mailbox materials are left open to start. They eventually need to be specified. The current mailboxes are thin sheet steel boxes ($20) embedded in a decorative cedar housing (?$). A sturdier and longer lived alternative is the aluminum die-cast mailbox, but we should also consider lower cost alternatives.
