“Hello, I have one of the first generation Veeders Mailboxes made is the late 80’s. It is the large painted mailbox. We need to replace the door pull as ours was found broken on the ground. Someone must have gotten to close! Over the years our neighbors have all lost their mailboxes to kids with baseball bats, etc. and ours has stood strong. We love it! Would this part be available to purchase? We live in Cincinnati and I could come and pick it up if so. ”
“I have a red Veeders mailbox. Someone sideswiped it and bent the door “handle” I could probably find who did it by driving around town looking for a serious gouge in the side of their vehicle.
Can you sell me a new handle please (preferably in red)? The hinge, door and mailbox are all in fine shape.”
I have enjoyed a Veeders Mailbox in my home in Newton, MA for over 26 years. It will survive long after we sell this house. It is still perfect!
We are building a new place and need a new large stainless steel mailbox asap..as soon as you can ship it! Please call me so I can order one of your terrific mailboxes. The price has gone up in the last 26 years but I think it is well worth it!”

Hello fellow Veeder’s mailbox fans!
I thought you may like to see what we did with our mailbox at home after finding a custom aluminum welder through a friend. I was looking for a way to make it more unique and designed something we thought would work well considering our affinity with fishing and everything ocean. If we ever find a place in the Keys, you can bet it’ll have a dolphin wrapped around the Veeder’s mailbox!
Thank you again for making us the finest mailbox on the planet. It is indestructible and has an amazing capacity. It is the talk of all the local mail carriers!

Beautiful, thank you.

I thought you might be interested in the result of a test of your mailbox which you probably haven’t tried.
Several weeks ago a pipe-bomb was placed in my new Veeders Mailbox (and others in the area) by vandals. Although the blast we heard was quite loud and the 3/4 inch pipe was completely fragmented, the effect on the mailbox was not major. Other mailboxes were completely blown apart! Photographs are enclosed.
The ability of that mailbox to withstand such vandalism is remarkable.

It’s terrific. I cannot tell you how pleased I am. To see anything built as well as this, to close it and realize how solid it is gives me pleasure akin to that of admiring porcelain or old Chinese bronzes. Don’t we all admire what is complete.

Thought you might appreciate a quick comment.
In 1987, after enduring multiple instances of mailbox vandalism and its associated inconvenience and sheer frustrated anger that sent me back to the store to buy and install a new one, I purchased a Veeders Stainless Steel Mailbox.
That was about 12 years ago. During this time the mailbox has survived several dozen amateur distraction pranks, several of which reverberated loudly enough to be heard indoors, 500 feet back from my street. Yelps of pain, presumably from sprained wrists / arms on the part of the perpetrator who failed to get the desired result of a detached and airborne mailbox have not been uncommon either.
As of today, the mailbox looks and functions as it did when it was new, with only a couple of very small scuff (or “ding”) marks and 2 or 3 paint stains that are presumably from painted baseball bats (or equivalent), and easily polished off at my leisure.
The mailbox also seems to be amused at the high velocity slush tossed at it by municipal snow removal equipment – and again, without any indication of damage, misalignment, rust or corrosion.
At the time of purchase, I thought the mailbox to be a bit pricey. The peace of mind derived from its durability, lack of deterioration, and the nearly guaranteed reliability of its remaining in place and being serviceable has made this mailbox one of the best economical investment that I can recall.
(For those who tend to be cynical, I have no affiliation with, or financial interest in Veeders, Inc. I am not acquainted with any of the staff, employees or any subsidiaries of Veeders, Inc.)

I am dropping you a short letter to let you know how happy I am to have a Veeders Mailbox.
I purchased a home in the country last spring and ordered my mailbox from you before I moved. I talked with my cousins, who reside near my home, and they suggested that I get a mailbox that could withstand the attacks regularly made on mailboxes in our area. In fact, they have one of your large mailboxes in white.
I have enclosed pictures of my mailbox and the “rock” that was thrown at it at least two times. As you can see, it did sustain some damage but survived the attack. My guess is that the rock weighs about l5 – 20 pounds. It must have been thrown with some force to dent the mailbox but the mailbox won.
I am very delighted that I purchased my mailbox from you. If I ever need another, you will have a repeat customer.

Just a short note to let you know how fine your mailbox is.
I replaced 6 mailboxes destroyed by vandals before purchasing a Veeders mailbox. We’ve had it now for some 12 or so years, and have often been awakened in the middle of the night with the sound of a ball bat, pipe or some other implement hitting the box, followed shortly thereafter by a scream.
Attached is a jpeg showing the results of the last test of your mailbox.
The Honda hit the mailbox which was mounted on a 6×6 pressure treated post which was set about 3 1/2 feet into the ground in sand. The impact tore the entire post out of the ground; two other regular mailboes attached to the same post flew off, but the Veeders box stayed attached to the post. The car also grazed a utility pole behind the mailbox and came to rest on top of the mailbox and post. The car had to be towed away.
I was not home at the time, but when I returned, there was the mailbox laying in the crushed bluestorn of my driveway. I opened the door and removed the mail.
Next morning, we put the mailbox back in the hole it came out of and gave it a paint job; looks good as new.
It’s nice to feel good about products you buy. I love my Veeders mailbox, my Macintosh computer and my wife, as well as other things; not necessarily in that order, however.
