Where can you find a blue USPS mailbox in Los Gatos or Monte Sereno?

USPS Mail boxes in Los Gatos and Monte Sereno CAHave you ever needed to mail something but just did not have the time to run to the main post office? Sometimes those blue United States Postal Service mailboxes are just the thing you need. But try finding one if you are stressed or in a hurry and cannot think straight!

Websites and apps to locate a USPS collection box

Available for both iPhone and Android smart phones, Mail Box Locator is a free app which will assist you in discovering the box in closest proximity to you. (Find it on iTunes or Google Play.) Ont the Google Play site, it’s given about 3 1/2 stars out of five. Regular websites may be preferable.

Browsing the web, are a few sites for finding the nearest blue collection box. One is Mailbox Map. Something cool about Mailbox Map is that it allows users to add maps, which should help to keep it current. (Though I believe it’s more likely for boxes to be removed than added with current budget constraints.) Mailbox Map uses cute mini blue box icons for its markers – see image below.

I found another site, also not affiliated with the USPS, which offers a couple of ways of locating those blue collection boxes – by list or by geo mash up map. (Apparently the website began as a way of finding public pay phones, but it covers these ubiquitous blue boxes as well). They do, of course, include the actual post office locations as well. What the maps and lists don’t do is combine zip codes. Sometimes you’re on the border of two zip codes and it would be ideal to simply put in your own address and see what’s nearby rather than searching only by zip.

Below are links to that information by our three Los Gatos and Monte Sereno area zip codes, 95030, 95032, 95033.
