CBUs allow a one-stop-shop for USPS mail delivery to save time and money. Carrington Commons is a community that already uses the CBU system and now has updated units with the help of Estes Designs!

Importance of Customer Feedback

Our team at Estes Designs strives to provide excellent customer service whether it’s by offering a quality product, providing a reliable and flexible partnership or responding to customer’s feedback. We always appreciate receiving feedback because it gives the company the opportunity to either capitalize on its strengths or improve its weaknesses.

We take customer feedback seriously in order to maintain exceptional customer service, and we’d like to share one example of how we’ve incorporated one customer’s feedback. Estes Designs started selling the aluminum trimmer guards on Amazon in December 2015. One customer left a review about the fact that he did not know how to install the trimmer guard. Estes Designs acknowledged the customer’s concern and quickly provided installation instructions to that customer. Estes went one step further and saw an opportunity to create and include an installation instruction sheet with all future trimmer guards sold. Below are the instructions we now include in case you’re curious on how to install a trimmer guard:

Importance of HOA Covenants

Oxford, Brighton Knoll (4) Edited

Have you ever wondered how HOA Covenants came to exist and why they bring value to a community? When a community is initially created and the land is developed, the developer declares a declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. The declaration creates a covenant condition embedded in an assessment lien, which HOAs can place on your house in order to ensure conformance. This is usually agreed to and signed by homeowners when closing the loan on a house.

Small dents will likely be visible on top of mailbox, but it never hurts to take a more careful look, as large hail can affect the shape of a mailbox and make it difficult for the door to operate (close) properly.
