    • Module number of your community mailbox
    • Number of your compartment within the community mailbox

    Finding your compartment

    Look for 2 different numbers to identify your compartment within your community mailbox.
    1. Locate the module number in the top left hand corner of the community mailbox.
    2. Find your personal compartment number located on the locked boxes within the module.

    Receiving parcels at a community mailbox

    1. Check your compartment for the parcel. 
    2. If your parcel isn’t there, check your compartment for a key to one of the parcel compartments in the community mailbox. 
    3. Find the parcel compartment that matches the number on the parcel key tag. 
    4. Use the key to open the parcel compartment, remove your parcel, then lock it up again. 
    5. Drop the parcel key in the outgoing mail slot of the community mailbox.

    Where are larger parcels delivered?

    We’ll deliver larger parcels directly to your home if they don’t fit in the parcel compartment or if a signature is required upon delivery. If nobody is home and there’s no safe place to leave your parcel, or if a signature is required, we’ll bring the parcel to a nearby post office. We’ll leave a delivery notice card to let you know when and where you can pick up your item.
