    Where can we get a wooden/metal assignment drop box ?

    Hi folks

    Anyone know where we can buy one of these from ? Our external procedures require us to have students submit a hard copy of assignments with a submission sheet signed to say the work is their own.

    We need a postbox - probably about 3-4 feet high with a lockable door at the bottom and a letterbox at the top.

    Can these things be bought anywhere ? We appear to have run out of places to try and no luck yet.

    Our handyman is way too busy to build us one so just wondered if anyone knew of a retailer ?

    Cheers

    Probably searching for the wrong thing, I was searching for Postbox on google and came across this on amazon

    Amazon.co.uk: Post Boxes - Garden Building & Décor: Garden & Outdoors

    Take your pick - I presume you were after one like this

    Large Capacity A4 Black Steel Newspaper Box Holder Post Box Letter Box Mail Box: Amazon.co.uk: Garden & Outdoors

    Also found this site with high capacity post boxes

    High Capacity Postboxes - Postbox Solutions Ltd

    Biggi Mini Rondo - High Capacity Postboxes - Postbox Solutions Ltd

    Not sure what your max price tag would be like but those are around the £160 mark give or take a bit

    Maybe you could even see if you could pay a D&T tech at your local school to make one?

    Get a normal locker and have a play with a angle grinder or oxy torch?

    Also have a chat to most business furniture/custom desk businesses they probably know somewhere or can do one.
