This information is meant to be helpful, and while this might seem like an obvious topic we've had many buyers from out of state who were shocked when they learned about the mailbox setup in Colorado Springs.

Colorado Springs is a huge area, and the mailbox situation is different depending on where you live in the city. Some houses have the old school mail slots on the home, some have the box attached to the home, and some have the traditional box on a post near the end of the driveway.

The situation that seems to surprise people is the multiple mailboxes depicted in the picture. This setup is referred to as a pedestal mailbox, tenant boxes, door cluster unit, and multifamily mailboxes. Everyone seems to be familiar with associating these with apartment homes. They are safe and very secure, much more secure than an unlocked box in front of your home.
