Granite Mailbox Post Install Yankee mailbox arrives at the customer job site with a custom truck fully equipped with digging and hand tools. Installers wear neat uniforms with pith helmets working deliberately to install safely, efficiently and with consistent good quality. 300 plus pound granite posts are lowered into the hole with the help of our crane built into the custom truck. We always finish with a masterpiece installed and an immaculately clean work site.
Digging Method Yankee Mailbox shows the template system used to start the post hole so the mailbox post is safe from the snow plow and accessible to the postal carrier. Care is given to ensure the dig site is clean and underground utilities are not disturbed. With level, tamping rod and gravel to make solid ground pack, posts maintain plum and perpendicular to the road...guaranteed.
Neighborhood Projects Yankee Mailbox has completed big neighborhood projects for the largest builders in the country, custom builders and home owners associations. All realize the "curb appeal" of a top quality Yankee Mailbox, the order and security that individual mailbox address lettering provides, the importance of service with cost effective modular parts in case repairs are needed, and the value of carrying a quality traditional design throughout to enhance the value of the neighborhood.
Maintenance Maintenance service keeps your Yankee Post looking like new. We clean and wax the mailbox, tighten all hardware, level, tamp, and firm the post, sand all cedar surfaces and finish with latex stain. Mailbox post maintenance service includes new brace hardware cover caps, stabilizer system if necessary and finally an American Flag.
Winter Service For mailbox post installation orders during the frozen ground months of January, February, and part of March, Yankee Mailbox will attempt to install, but if the ground frost is too thick, we will drop off a free standing temporary mailbox with an above ground cement footing for an additional $20 added to your total. Use the temporary post until your Yankee Mailbox is installed in Spring. This way your mail delivery will not be disrupted.
