Balmoral Mailbox is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Paint WILL flake. This mailbox paint will flake within 5 years. I've had 2 and both have flaked. Unfortunately, the company stated they see nothing wrong with it and wouldn't stand behind their product. It's too bad, because other than that, it's a lovely mailbox, but for the price...I'd expect more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from They don't look great for long I've had two of these mailboxes. These mailboxes look great the first season. Start to show their ware by season two. After three seasons the paint starts to peal. By then they are out of warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expensive for a box only When I placed the order, I thought the post was included, as it's height/measurements were listed. I would not have spent SO much money on a brown box with no post.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Balmoral Mailbox I am extremely pleased with the appearance and the quality of the mailbox. However, I received only two of the three boxes on day one. It was three days later before I received box number three. Therefore, I thought my order was incomplete. A numbering system on the boxes would be helpful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from paint peeling We love our mailbox with many compliments. However, it is peeling. I see many others have posted the same complaint. Does it fall under "limited warranty".? I don't see it explained anywhere. Has anyone tried painting?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Product Recently installed this mailbox with the optional post and decorative base. The quality of construction is top notch and everything assembled without an issue. This one makes every other mailbox on the street look plain and boring.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice looking but ........ This mailbox is pretty and appears to be well made but the gold paint used for the address and number is not visible on the white mailbox. It is not even reflective and still cannot be seen when you are close up to the box. In the night is cannot be seen. A big disappointment!!! Now have to pay twice to have the number and address plate repainted to a visible color!!!!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I hired a professional to install the mailbox. The holes are powder coated so it was extremely difficult to get the screws into the 'arm' the the mailbox sits on. 1 screw had to be left off because it just wouldn't go in. Also, after installation when you open the mailbox it shakes back and forth. Somehow the actual mailbox needs to be connected to the post to stabilize it. For the money that I paid I'm very disappointed. Looks great but doesn't function great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expected a longer life We have also had the coating bubble up and peel off after about 6 years. Definitely expected a longer lifespan after having paid so much for this mailbox. It is so classy when it is new. We are so disappointed and would also like to know if anyone has had any luck with painting it and if so, what product you have used. Only buy this if you can afford to replace it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful & Sturdy I would have given 5 stars, but the items came in 3 shipments (leaving me worried I didn't have all the parts) and the magnet that holds to door on was broken. Other than that, it looks really great and is so sturdy I don't think it will blink if a hurricane comes through. I heartily recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design - Good execution This is very well designed product and I think that with some UV blocking auto-wax once every six months the finish should last longer. However, the PROPER installation of this item is NOT for DIY neophytes. In order to have a good outcome, you should be pretty handy and be good at properly measuring and planning an installation. Let your local contractor or handy-man do the install if this does not describe you. Also be aware that you must have a 4x4 treated post as the backbone of the install. Also had a missing screw and a broken magnet in the door. Otherwise, a good value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful mailbox I wanted to review this mailbox so hopefully some improvements could be made. First - the mailbox itself is beautiful and sturdy and I love it. Worth the small headache to get it up. You have to have some tools to install it yourself - you have to dig a hole 30" deep. You also have to purchase a wood post the put in the ground and adhere the mailbox to. The post length is not standard so my husband had to cut it at home. Not a big deal, but you will need a large saw. Also, the screw used to adhere the monogram letter to the door wouldn't work, and they have to send us a new one, which also didn't work. We ended up finding one at the hardware store. Not a deal breaker - just annoying. I'm sure if you hire a handyman to do it - he will have all the proper tools.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was Expecting More The mailbox is nice overall but I thought that I was getting the mailbox, post and base. I interpreted the description as this being a set. Upon receiving only the mailbox I reviewed the item description and while it does have the 3 items described under the mailbox it has additional item numbers for the post and base. I now have to order and wait for the additional items along with more expenditure. I wish this was made clearer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Paint Chips This mailbox is functional and sturd, and is very stylish.. However... It started to chip immediately. Now, three short years later, half the paint has chipped off. Do. Not. Buy. I will replace it with a cheaper one. Not worth the money at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiul mailbox I don't often buy something like this on line but I was confident in the quality of merchandise from Frontgate and they did NOT disappoint. The Balmoral mailbox is beautiful, high quality, oversized and the best looking mailbox on the block!!!! I am THRILLED with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love this mailbox!! This is my very first mailbox. The town that I live in does have not have mail delivered. We have P.O. boxes instead. We are building a new home and I wanted the best looking mailbox in the neighborhood and I sure did get it! The picture does it every bit of justice as it does in person. This mailbox is large enough for small parcels and wide enough for magazines without bending them. The finish is beautiful. I have received compliments from all of my neighbors. This is a very elegant mailbox

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better for the price! I purchased this mailbox Sept 2012. I love the size and the look of it. The material is also good. Unfortunately, the paint job did not last anymore than 25 months from installation. The paint starts chipping off. I am trying to figure out how to salvage it. It may require a complete paint job to make it look decent again. I figured for the high price it would have lasted longer than 2 years. Too bad.......

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Mailbox! This mailbox is absolutely gorgeous. After three years, it still looks great. I haven't had problems with the paint chipping or peeling, but I live in an arid climate where only the summer heat is an issue. The installation wasn't easy because of poorly spaced screw holes which required new ones to be drilled. Also, the initial plate on the door cannot be tightened completely for a similar reason. The installation was done by my handyman...if it was me, I would have returned the thing out of frustration. Other than that, the craftsmanship seems good. The door opens and closes smoothly and the magnetic closure is very nice. The size of the box is perfect for small packages. I would definitely purchase this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW MAILBOX OMG! This mailbox is absolutely gorgeous! It is exactly as the picture! It is made of fine quality, as with everything from FRONTGATE!

I can't say enough about FRONTGATE...they not only have beautiful products,, they are made of FINE QUALITY!!! Thank You FRONTGATE!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Powder coating blisters and peels I purchased my mailbox a little over two years ago. I ordered the monogram and address plate to go on the mailbox. Very difficult to assemble. The screws did not line up ended up using Gorilla glue to mount these plates to the mailbox. After last winter the powder coating began to blister and peel it does not hold up to road salts. For the price I am not happy that it did not last for more than two years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from mailbox peeling My mail box is peeling as well. It looked so great when it was new, but I am very disappointed about how poorly it has aged. For that much money, I expected more longevity. Has any one tried to repaint it or touch it up? DMF Cons: Quality, Durability, Appearance, poor value

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mailbox This is our second Balmoral Mailbox, the first was dented and marked by someone with a very aggressive bat!! It looks lovely at the end of the drive. Having the house number helps visitors find us easily and it is big enough to take small parcels. Hopefully I will not have to replace it but if necessary I would buy another Balmoral mailbox.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Purchase My mailbox is also peeling, I called to get touch up paint but I feel you should not have to see it peel after a year!
Date published: 2014-02-24
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Balmoral mailbox It was a fine looking mailbox when it arrived, but it started pealing after a year. Then last year the flag broke off. Now a couple of months ago the door came off. I love Frontgate, but this is not their normal quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful Mailbox But Not Perfect While this is a beautiful mailbox it is not without problems from a assembly standpoint. The hardware provided does not thread easily. if you get the post cover insure that the post you purchase to put in the ground is VERY straight. I thought my post was straight however I still had to hammer the post over down around the post. Also I am not sure what kind of hand configuration you need to get all 3 screws in the component that the mailbox sits on connected to the post. The drill points for attaching the side plates with the address were very difficult to see and it took several iterations to get hols that lined up with the attachment screws. Even the locations where the screws attach to secure the mailbox to the support were poorly machined and were difficult to attach. As I said Beautiful mailbox assembly took WAY longer than expected.

Is the post hollow, as I need it to fit over an existing steel pole that is 2" by 2"

Asked by: mememe
You MUST have a 4x4 treated lumber post. That post must either be mounted to a special post mounting spike (HD or Lowes) or must be set into the ground more than 30-36 inches. A wheelbarrow full of quickcrete will also work, but beware that if you set the post in concrete that water will wick down into the hole and begin to rot the post eventually, so filing the space above the cement level with marble rocks or something than can drain and evaporate is a good idea for rainy or wet climates.

What is the weight of the Balmoral Mailbox?

Asked by: drcolemn
All of the elements including the mailbox itself, the hollow post, the finial (top) and the optional base are about 20 pounds since it is made from cast aluminum, not steel. It should withstand a few whacks from a baseball bat, but not an all-out assault from a crazed teenager. The strength of installation itself is based upon the 4x4 post primarily, and not the aluminum over-post.

Is there a newspaper holder that fits below this mailbox?

Also, does it fit on a normal sized post, such as the Capitol mailbox? Thank you
Asked by: donnaandjeff
There is no newspaper holder and since the box is so big, you do not need one. It is big enough to hold small packages.

Does it get better reviews than the Capitol mail box?

Asked by: curious
I have read the reviews and having owned this one before we brought the Balmoral, I can tell you the negative ones are correct. The installation instructions for this one were so bad, I did it my own way. Lucky I did. This mail was hit 3 times and it was the 3rd hit that broke the brackets.
