Curb Appeal

It's been a rough winter but warmer weather has finally arrived. Spring is here and with it comes the need to repair the damage the cold weather has done to our yards. With all of the snow we had here in the Greater Cincinnati area, perhaps your mailbox was damaged by a snow plow. Or, maybe you're getting ready to put your home on the market. Others just want to improve their curb appeal. One of the top ways to improve curb appeal is to update your mailbox. If you get your mail from a dented gray box that sits atop a damaged post with one or more of your house numbers missing, it's time for a mailbox makeover. Choose a mailbox that matches the style of your home. Not only will your mailman appreciate it, but so will you every time you arrive home.

Safety Tips for Driving on Snow and Ice

Winter is here and with it comes icy road conditions. We get a lot of calls this time of year because a driver has slid off the road and damaged a mailbox. While the best way to avoid an accident is to wait for conditions to improve, here a few safety tips to remember if you must drive in snowy/icy conditions:

  • Take is SLOW! A factor in many accidents is overconfidence in your ability to drive in the current conditions.
  • Wear your seat belt. This is a no-brainer at all times.
  • Pay attention to the weather. Awareness of conditions will help you be better prepared.
  • Go easy on your brakes. ABS (anti-lock brakes) do not work well on snow and ice.
  • Turn into a slide. Turn your wheels in the direction the rear of your car is sliding.
  • Icy road accidents happen in multiples. Your own accident is sometimes not the greatest threat to you.
  • Don't stop for accidents or stranded vehicles along an icy roadway. Helping others is a good thing, but on an icy road, it can cause more problems than it solves

So drive safely this winter, but if a mailbox does happen to get in your way, contact us here at Nice Mailbox. We provide the Greater Cincinnati Area with quality, affordable mailbox sales, service and installation!
