Frequently Asked Questions
Why do mailboxes you get from those big hardware stores rust so quickly?
Because they are manufactured cheaply out of steel, which oxidises (rusts) once it is outside in the moist air. Some are just painted steel which have very little protection from the elements. We recommend using Zincalume and powder coating as this method has proven to be durable against the elements (rustproof), otherwise choose one of our stainless steel, marine grade plywood, or plastic mailboxes.
Can you arrange mailbox installation?
We can suggest: FIX-IT BUILDING SERVICES, you can phone free: 0800 226 349 or visit their website: www.fix-it.co.nz. They cover most areas of New Zealand. There are many other 'odd job' companies about, you could also ask a local builder or handyman, otherwise check your local newspaper.
Do you have a mailbox brochure?
No, we try to put as much information on the website as possible. If you need more information or specialised measurements, please contact us.

On my screen the terracotta looks like a muted pumpkin colour, is that red or orange?
Different computers display some of the colours differently. Please use the descriptions as a reference. Most colours on a metal mailbox are standard BHP colours. In some cases colour samples are available. You can also adjust the colour settings for your monitor to a better quality, this might help.
Why will it not let me through to the checkout?
Because the security settings on you web browser are set too high. Temporarily set them to medium (where it allows cookie storage) and make your purchase. You can then reset them to your usual settings. Otherwise call 4 Seasons Wellington on 0064-4-3889944.
