Are CBU’s weatherproof?

Salsbury’s durable and corrosion-resistant CBU’s are constructed of heavy-duty aluminum and stainless steel hardware with a powder coated finish that will stand up well to harsh weather conditions.

What are the benefits of cluster box units?

It is a lot more efficient for a mail carrier to deliver mail to one centralized location instead of delivering from house to house. Consequently, CBU’s provide the USPS with both time savings and significant fuel-efficiency on their postal vehicles. With CBU’s, the USPS also reduces labor costs as each mail carrier will be able to more efficiently deliver their mail. Cluster mailboxes are more secure than individual curbside mailboxes. Multiple safety features protect against mail theft. Each tenant is assigned a mail compartment that is secured with a heavy-duty cam. An anti-fish plate on the rear of the outgoing mail slot helps block the tampering of mail.

What is centralized mail delivery?

Centralized mail delivery is a mail delivery system in which the mail carrier delivers mail for multiple residences at one central location.

Do CBU’s meet ADA guidelines?

What are parcel lockers?

A parcel locker is a lockable compartment designed to hold packages that will not fit in a standard mailbox compartment.

back to top

How do parcel lockers work on cluster box units?

Parcel lockers are included with cluster box units, either alongside them or integrated. When a mail carrier is unable to fit a package into a standard mailbox compartment, they will place your package in a parcel locker. The carrier will then leave the key to the parcel locker in your mailbox. (If you look up the USPS tracking number for your package online, you will see a message “Delivered to Parcel Locker” when your delivery arrives.) To get your package out of the parcel locker, you simply need to use the key the mail carrier has left in your mailbox to unlock the parcel locker. The key will have a tag that indicates which locker contains your package. Once you have unlocked the parcel locker and retrieved your package, the key capture system will secure the parcel locker key in place so that it can’t be removed. Only a USPS mail carrier will be able to remove the key with a master key. If you’re still unsure of how parcel lockers work, consult this helpful video.
