Earlier this month, the Northern Indianapolis condominium community of Glendale Village was given a mailbox upgrade thanks to Estes Designs. Working closely with Glendale’s property management company, Ardsley Management, Estes Designs was able to replace and install 19 wall-mount mailboxes. Each new mailbox added to the homes’ traditional and elegant feel. Estes Designs is expected to also install these wall-mounted mailboxes in Central State, another condominium community.
Roses are red, violets are blue, and your mailbox wants something special this time of year too!
This time of year, your mailbox is often the last thing you’re thinking about. Between purchasing gifts for others and checking dinner reservations, your mailbox takes a backseat. With the warm months fast approaching, now is the best time to think about improving your mailbox, giving it the love and attention it deserves.
Introducing next generation in mailboxes
Does your mailbox screech every time you open it to retrieve your mail? Does the outside of your mailbox look more like the chassis of an unwashed semi-truck? Or, are you just tired of an average mailbox? Getting your mail should be an enjoyable experience. One that excites you and empowers you as you walk down your driveway. It’s your piece of land and you’re proud of everything you’ve built on it from the garden to the house to the perfectly cut grass.

In the battle between snow plows and mailboxes, snow plows always win. So, to better serve you, we answer this question – what do you do if your mailbox gets hit by a snow plow?
While mailboxes need to be far enough off the road that they won’t be hit by cars, they need to be close enough that the mail carriers can reach it without leaving their trucks. Estes Designs Mailbox and Streetscapes is familiar with local postmaster specifications and can ensure that your mailbox is installed correctly. However, sometimes with mailbox collisions, it’s not the placement of the mailbox, but the force of the snow that the plow is tossing. If the snow is wet and heavy, the force of the snow coming off the plow is enough to dent a mailbox or even loosen a post.
Regardless of how the mailbox is hit – whether directly plowed or avalanched by snow – follow these simple steps:
