Chances are you can think of at least three mailboxes in your community that stand out to you. Whether your neighbor has a pink flamingo mailbox or a fire truck mailbox, you’ve likely noticed.

Unusual mailboxes not only draw a driver’s attention, but they come with many other benefits as well.

1. They become an assistant when giving directions.

If someone wants to know where you live, chances are you’ll give them a list of daunting directions to follow with the ending line being your numerical address.

However, chances are your possible guest will waste a great deal of time searching house numbers as they are driving down your street.

So, if you have an unusual mailbox you can instead just mention your mailbox and instead of your guest looking for faded house numbers they can quickly spot your place!

2. They allow you to show a bit of yourself.

Unusual mailboxes are not only functional, but they also allow you to put a bit of your wackiness out into the world.

If you want your home to stand out amongst the other homes on the block, it’s great to have a great mailbox.

Your guests and neighbors will be able to see a bit of your personality and reflection within your crazy mailbox!

3. They are an inexpensive way to add curb appeal to your property.

There is nothing worse than a boring black mailbox! Thus, having an unusual mailbox is a great way to add instant curb appeal to your property.

In addition, it’s a curb appeal add that doesn’t cost a bundle of money.
