Bunnings I think have something similar.
timmmay:...Bunnings I think have something similar.
Thinking about how secure any delivered package would be with either product and I have a couple of questions:
Yeah I think it's that one. Couriers will typically do whatever is easier for them I think, but a box where you put a parcel in and make it drop down is easier than filling out a card to call, so they might. Go have a look at the Bunnings one, I didn't examine my friends' letterbox ;)

Bung:... Elephantrunk is an alternative...
Yes, found it on Amazon. It looks much better but the shipping costs are crazy...
If you didn't have a letter box, how would the courier's know your house number on the street?
psychrn:Authority To Leave will sort that.
MuzaNZ: I would say yes.
Ours doesn't get used much for letters, but it gets used quite a bit by the courier to put small items in when we're not home
Similar - but couriers in my area (apart from Courier Post) are good and leave parcels at my door - I'm down a shared drive then up a decent length private drive. The Courier Post person doesn't even bother bringing the parcel, she pre-fills out a card to collect and puts that in my letterbox. Found this out one day when I intercepted her putting the card in the letterbox and said I'd take the parcel directly.
JaseNZ: Where's all my Aliexpress junk that I bought going to go. Our little dog would also be no longer be able to bark at the postie in their cool buggy. They must stay I say.
This. And from a few other places (here and overseas) that I purchase from. And from a couple of places that are too backward to have electronic statements. And government/local government...
Have found the couriers come so early that you are in bed and therefore not answering the door so they leave a card. Must save them a lot of time
With most mail coming electronically these days do we still need a letter box on the street?
Well some mail comes. Not much but a bit.
The form my mum has to complete for her pension, changes....Yes she has the login but they insist on sending that form.
And small parcels of course. The main reason.
Some mail comes, I agree. Thanks for all the comments. It is however getting less and less each year as more businesses and finally even medical appointments switch to email. I wonder if we will still have snail mail 5 years from now, or perhaps only once or twice a week? NZ Post has to make a profit after all. Perhaps only couriers will deliver mail - maybe to the door rather than the letter box. We'll see.
Oh no, not another end of the world prediction
Bung: Easier to do when the front door opens onto the footpath.
I was once going to put a mail slot on the front of the garage but didn't like the idea that mail might not be the only thing put through it.
Yes, but not every front door opens onto the footpath. It still works!
