Cluster Mailboxes for Your Community



Cluster mailboxes originated with the United States Postal Service (USPS) desire to move away from individual mailboxes at each postal address to a centralized cluster of mailboxes that served many individual addresses.   Making this switch helps postal carriers and provides major benefits to the USPS.

  1. Cluster mailboxes allow postal carriers to make fewer stops, which means lower operating costs for each mail carrier’s vehicle.
  2. Cluster mailboxes provide faster overall service since multiple deliveries per stop is far more efficient than one delivery per stop.
  3. The change to cluster mailboxes results in far less dog bites (seriously) per mail carrier as the carrier no longer has to enter yards or fences to deliver the mail.


The change to centralized CBU mailboxes not only provides the above benefits to USPS and its postal carriers, but there are benefits to property developers and property managers, too.

  1. The utilization of CBU mailboxes provides significant cost savings over individual mailboxes for each tenant or resident.
  2. CBU mailboxes provide a much more secure solution to mail delivery for tenants by significantly reducing mail theft and identity theft. Safe mail and package delivery enhances the overall safety of the property under management.
  3. The overall aesthetics of the neighborhood or tenant property can be significantly improved due to the elimination of non-uniform or damaged individual mailboxes.


In addition to the benefits to the USPS and property developers or managers, CBU mailboxes or cluster mailboxes also have benefits to the end users, the residents or tenants themselves:

  1. The utilization of cluster mailboxes means that tenants or homeowners no longer have to wait at home or at the office for the mail in order to receive a parcel package.
  2. The use of cluster mailboxes allows tenants or homeowners to avoid trips to the post office or collection boxes by simply placing outgoing mail in the cluster mailbox’s outgoing mail slot.
  3. The mail received in cluster mailboxes is much better protected from the elements, thieves, and tampering than through standard, unprotected individual mailboxes.
  4. The cost savings to the USPS from the use of cluster mailboxes help sustain lower costs to the end user.
