FAQs

Find answers to common questions about locksmith services

To obtain a mailbox key, you typically need to provide proof of identity and ownership or authorization. Bring a government-issued photo ID (e.g., driver's license, passport) and any relevant documentation, such as a lease agreement or confirmation of mailbox ownership. If you're requesting a duplicate key, the original key or key code may be required.

 

A mailbox key grants access to a specific mailbox assigned to an individual or entity. With a mailbox key, you can:

  1. Retrieve Mail: The primary purpose of a mailbox key is to access and retrieve mail that has been delivered to your designated mailbox.

  2. Receive Packages: If your mailbox is equipped to receive packages, a mailbox key may provide access to parcel lockers or larger compartments for package deliveries.

  3. Secure Documents: Mailboxes are often used to receive sensitive documents, and a mailbox key ensures that only authorized individuals can access this information.

  4. Manage Correspondence: With a mailbox key, you have control over managing your mail and ensuring its security until you're ready to retrieve it.

 

Leaving keys in the mailbox is generally not recommended due to security concerns. If a mailbox key is left unattended in the mailbox, it could potentially be accessed by unauthorized individuals, leading to security risks. Always keep your keys secure and avoid leaving them in easily accessible locations.

 

Attempting to open a mailbox without a key, especially one that doesn't belong to you, is illegal and a violation of privacy. Unauthorized access to mailboxes is considered a federal offense in many places. If you've lost your mailbox key or are facing issues, it's advisable to contact the appropriate authorities, such as the postal service or your property management, and follow the proper procedures to obtain a replacement key legally.

 

This depends on the type of mailbox you have. If you have a curbside mailbox, it is most likely owned and maintained by the United States Postal Service (USPS). If you have a cluster mailbox (also known as a community mailbox), it may be owned by the USPS or by your apartment complex or condominium association.

 

If you have lost your mailbox key, you can contact the USPS or your apartment complex or condominium association, depending on who owns your mailbox.

  • If your mailbox is owned by the USPS, you can visit your local post office to request a replacement key. You will need to bring a valid government-issued ID and proof of residence. There is a fee for replacement keys.

  • If your mailbox is owned by your apartment complex or condominium association, you will need to contact your building manager or superintendent. They may be able to provide you with a replacement key or direct you to a locksmith who can make one for you.

 

The cost of a replacement mailbox key varies depending on the type of key and where you get it. Replacement keys from the USPS typically cost around $20. Replacement keys from a locksmith may cost more.

 

You should contact the USPS or your apartment complex or condominium association, depending on who owns your mailbox. They may be able to provide you with a replacement key or direct you to a locksmith who can make one for you.

 

When you move out of your residence, you should leave your mailbox key with the new owner or tenant. This will help to ensure that the new residents have access to their mail.

Additional tips:

  • Make a copy of your mailbox key and keep it in a safe place. This will make it easier to get a replacement key if you lose your original key.

  • Do not leave your mailbox key in your mailbox. This is a security risk and could allow someone else to access your mail.

  • If you are concerned about the security of your mailbox, you can purchase a mailbox lock that is more difficult to break into.
