There are many different materials that locking mailboxes can be made out of . Today we will be discussing Aluminum locking mailboxes.

Aluminum has one great advantage, one pretty good advantage, and several disadvantages. The best thing about an aluminium locking mailbox is that aluminium will never rust. Even if if the paint wears off, the aluminum will not rust.

Another pretty good thing about aluminum is that it’s light weight can lower shipping costs when ordering them online.

A big disadvantage to aluminum is that it gets beat up easily. Aluminum is lighter than steel, but it is also much less strong. I’ve seen many aluminium locking mailboxes that look terrible just from the daily wear and tear of normal use.

Also, due to its light nature, aluminium also scratches easily.
