Have a broken mailbox lock or lost your mailbox keys? Why would anyone steal your bills? Actually, there’s a serious concern for privacy as identity thieves are after key information while others are after credit cards and checks. So it’s important to keep your mailbox lock secure. We serve the Boston, Massachusetts area with quality mailbox locksmith services, including connecting mailbox keys and mailbox lock changes.
Since only the post office can have a master key, each lock and key are different. So who can service them?
- USPS Owned — With the transition to grouped mailboxes rather than one at every home, the USPS can make repairs or perform a mailbox lock change. That’s a good idea if you’ve just moved in or lost a key. But it typically takes them 1-2 weeks, longer during the holiday season. And they don’t make mailbox key replacements.
- Apartment Owner and Home Owner Associations — They should provide services at cost, subject to your approval. This typically takes 1 – 3 weeks.
- Home Owner — It’s your responsibility!
As long as you reside at the corresponding address the mailbox is legally yours. After you present us with official ID and evidence of your current residential address we can start work immediately.
Our Mailbox Locksmith Services
Despite the many types of mailbox locks we can cut new keys as well as repair or replace just about anything, usually from stock. Mailbox locks exposed to the weather are especially prone to jamming. We can usually extract the key without damage and make repairs so there’s no need to have mailbox locks changed. But when it’s time for a lock change we can help you choose the type of lock that best meets your budget and security needs. Replacement usually takes about 20 minutes.
