In the title sequence of the original 1966 Star Trek television show, Captain Kirk proudly declares, “To boldly go where no man has gone before”. While Estes Design and Streetscapes is in no ways breaking the barriers of the galactic frontier like Captain Kirk and his crew aboard the USS Enterprise, we are, however, making waves of our own within the mailbox industry. How you ask?
Boldly going where no mailbox has gone before!
It is quite simple. Estes Designs has recognized as the Builder’s Choice thanks to our expertise in installing CBU mailboxes, the future of delivering and receiving mail.
What is a CBU?
For those not familiar with all the lingo of the mailbox industry, CBU stands for “Cluster Box Unit”. Cluster Box Units are large, free-standing mailboxes that have multiple, individually locked compartments. As a result of their unusual design, CBUs have many advantages over standard mailboxes. The benefits of CBUs include:
- Centralized mail delivery and receiving locations for a community
- Durability that far surpasses the average mailbox due to a power coated aluminum frame
- Increased security with lockable, individual mailbox compartments
- More affordable for a community
Cluster Box Units are becoming more and more popular across Indianapolis. They are regarded as USPS’s preferred mailbox, and, to no surprise, are popping up all over the city of Indianapolis. Recently, Noblesville mandated that all new communities must install CBUs and not the traditional, individual curbside mailbox. Estes Designs was tasked with installation of Cluster Box Units in the Noblesville subdivisions of Millers Walk and Havenwood.
