Installing curbside mailboxes is a strenuous and dirty job. While digging the hole you may encounter roots, utilities or sprinkler pipes. Most installations are located in marl, which is a compact mixture of limestone rock and limestone sand that is almost as hard as concrete. Some areas of South Florida have a solid limestone bed just underneath the surface which was formerly a coral reef. Typically we use a post hole digger, jackhammer, breaker bar, flat shovel and spade. Our installations includes removal and disposal of your old post and mailbox. Preparing the hole 20" to 24" deep, setting the post in 40 to 80 lbs. of concrete, assembly, application of address numbers and red mulch for a finishing touch. Every mailbox is installed to USPS Regulation unless you have requested otherwise. There is no need for you to do this back breaking work, we can usually get it done within a few business days of purchase. If your mailbox is broken and unserviceable we will replace it two business days. Appointments are usually not necessary.
