The difficulty we found is finding one that is discrete enough that it would deter potential burglars and a well designed box that would still look attractive. We came across a number of items that were just too big for most homes. Additionally, we wanted something that couldn't be taken away easily, so that is why both the winner and runner-up are both wall-mountable.

Sizing wise, we went for the small to mid size options as most people usually only order this type. For the bigger items, you'll probably need to arrange with the courier as to when you'll be at home to sign for the item to be delivered.

1. PEELCO 19" Package Delivery Box 

#1
Porch Drop Box
"Slim, wall-mountable and solid"

This wall mounted parcel box will hold both small and medium packages. Perfect if you need an outdoor secure box for Amazon deliveries. It's also rust resistant, meaning it's ready for all types of weather.

4.5 out of 5 Stars
  • Manufacturer: Peelco
  • Weight: 16.25 pounds (7.4kg)
  • Size: 14.5 x 5.4 x 13.8 in.
  • Parcel Size Max: 10 x 2.5 x 5 in.
  • Material: Stainless steel
  • Rust & Weather Proof? Yes

This holds envelopes, newspapers and small to medium packages. It's a fairly heavy duty mailbox and comes with a slot big enough for all of your envelopes, mail, and packages.

It has been designed to de durable against the most extreme of weather and handles well against and bumps. It also looks good. The sleek, jet black 0.8mm thick galavanised stainless steel looks the part.

It's most suited to homes that don't really have much space outside, so it's especially suitable for terraced housing or narrow streets. While it is designed to be mounted on to a wall, it can also be affixed to the ground. 

It also comes with 4 keys, meaning you can spread out where you store the spare keys in case of loss.

Pros

  • Solidly built overall
  • Looks sleek, well designed
  • It's easy to install

Cons

  • Tight for medium packages
  • A bit expensive
  • Does feel a little light to hold
Peelco 19" Conclusion

it's a good buy if you live on a narrow street. It might be a bit overpriced for what it is, but we found it to be probably worth the money if you get lots of packages.

2. Qualarc WF-PB019 Parcel Drop Box

#2
Qualarc WF-PB019
"sturdy and weather resistant"

This top loading parcel mailbox has a soft curved lid on the top. It's constructed from an 0.8mm thin galvanised steel frame and the scratch resistant black outer shell looks very sleek to the eye.

4 out of 5 Stars
  • Manufacturer: Qualarc
  • Weight: 10 pounds (4.5kg)
  • Size: 9.5 x 13.5 x 20 inches
  • Parcel Size Max: 10 x 2.5 x 4 in.
  • Material: Stainless steel
  • Rust & Weather Proof? Yes

This is a better priced drop box; very economical and good value for money. Very much like the Peelco 19", it is fully wall mountable.

It's also proportionally sized and doesn't stand out too much.

A big negative is if a large box is delivered and it causes a block against the next package i.e. the flaps on the top go down when an items is dropped. If the flaps are unable to point downwards due to a block from below, then the courier is going to struggle to leave it at the property.

Pros

  • Lighter than other boxes
  • Well priced, economical
  • Can be locked

Cons

  • mounting hardware not included
  • Doesn't hold many packages
  • Only comes with 2 keys
Qualarc WF-PB019 Conclusion

it's a good buy if you live on a narrow street. It might be a bit overpriced for what it is, but we found it to be probably worth the money if you get lots of packages.

3. Step2 Package Delivery Box

#3
Step2 Delivery Box
"spacious for larger packages"

This has an elegant design that will complement perfectly with any architectural style. It is also a hasped storage container, meaning that  this item works with BoxLock - the first smart delivery padlock. 

4 out of 5 Stars
  • Manufacturer: Step2
  • Weight: 16 pounds (7.3kg)
  • Size: 19.1 x 23.1 x 32.3 in.
  • Parcel Size Max: 25 x 15 x 11 in.
  • Material: Durable Plastic
  • Rust & Weather Proof? Yes

This is a better option for those that have large sized boxes delivered to them. It will hold lots of packages, so there's no need for you to be in all day.

The plastic is reasonably OK, depending on the colour. We think you should opt for the darker colours as these blend into the background better and also look much more desirable.

It comes with a lockable hasp latch​, meaning you can use your own padlock or even better - purchasing a BoxLock which is the world's first smart lock.

It does feel a little lightweight yet cumbersome. Some people have suggested to bolt it down for added home security. We don't think that's absolutely necessary unless the box is completely exposed to passers-by.

Pros

  • Holds more packages
  • Reasonably well priced
  • Use with a padlock or BoxLock

Cons

  • Need quite a lot of floor space
  • Need to train your couriers
  • Plastic can feel a bit cheap
Step2 Conclusion

This item is good if you're able to install a Box Lock and notify your couriers such as Fedex or UPS to drop your packages inside, but we've heard that it's not always easy to do this. Resistance to change is strong 🙂

4. Yulli Vertical Dropbox

#4
Yulli
"cheap and cheerful - budget option"

Available in 4 colours and 2 sizes, this item is great for homeowners that are bit more conscience of cost. You should opt for the larger sized one.

3.5 out of 5 Stars
  • Manufacturer: Yulli
  • Weight: 5 pounds (2.26kg)
  • Size: 4.5 x 11.5 x 16 in.
  • Parcel Size Max: 10 x 1.5 x 5 in.
  • Material: Galvanised Sheet Metal
  • Rust & Weather Proof? Yes

This one is only really suitable for smaller packages, newspaper and magazines. If you think you're going to order and receive larger packages than the very small ones, then you shouldn't go with this.

The reason it's on this page is due to price. If you're looking for a cheap delivery dropbox, then this is your best bet. Size wise it isn't great though.

It comes with 2 keys in addition to all the screws and wall plugs to fit it to the wall.

Pros

  • Resistant to corrosion
  • Cheapest dropbox
  • Easy to install

Cons

  • Front door a bit flimsy
  • Feels a bit lightweight
  • Doesn't hold many packages
Yulli Conclusion

Cheap and cheerful. Does the job for smaller packages, but completely useless for anything bigger than a 'Lord of the Rings' book.

5. Qualarc WF-PB018 Parcel Box

#5
Wall Mounted Parcel Box
"Big, secure and spacious"

This is an extra large parcel and mailbox that is wall mountable. It's large enough that it'll hold enough mail if you go away on holiday for two weeks!

4 out of 5 Stars
  • Manufacturer: Qualarc
  • Weight: 18 pounds (8.2kg)
  • Size: 10 x 17 x 20.5 in.
  • Parcel Size Max: 14.5 x 7.8 x 4 in.
  • Material: Galvanised Steel
  • Rust & Weather Proof? Yes

This is a very large box, so make sure you're aware of that. it does protrude out a significant amount, so if this is important, maybe it's better to order a smaller one.

Made out of scratch resistant steel body, this extra large parcel box will hold at least a week or two worth of mail (depending on the size). It comes with two slots - one for regular letters and the other for packages.

The thickness of the steel wall is a little lower than desired at 0.8mm. This isn't a deal killer, but it can feel a little flimsy.

Pros

  • Nice curved design
  • A bit expensive for what it is
  • Can be locked

Cons

  • Screws can be fidgety
  • Mounting kit not included
  • Only comes with 2 keys
Qualarc WF-PB018 Conclusion

This is a great item if you receive lots of mail and packages which tend to be larger in size. Make sure you have the space for it as it's bulky.
