The Importance Of A Highly Visible House Number

Blog Header House Number

Every building should have a house number. House numbers come in all shapes, sizes and colours and are becoming more and more obligatory by the town or city. A clear and legible house number is practical for mail exchange, but can also be crucial in case of an emergency. Read here why you should check whether your house number is clearly visible to everyone.

Receive your mail or packages on time

The postman who makes his rounds every day will, after a while, put the right mail in the right mailbox. But for his colleague, a hidden or a missing house number can cause loss of time and frustration. Both for the postman and for residents who do not receive the mail on time. Invoices, reminders or important documents can get lost because they get stuck in the next door mailbox or are returned to sender.

Just like the mail, parcels are also delivered to the home. After ordering and paying for a parcel online, you will usually receive a delivery date. Courier services often have a tight schedule and have to deliver parcels on time or by the hour.

So if you are waiting for an urgent delivery, don't let the courier drive around unnecessarily in your street searching for your house!

In an emergency, every minute counts

Just imagine that the fire brigade, ambulance or police cannot find your house or flat immediately. 

In some emergencies, every minute can be crucial!
