LOCKER SIZES & RULES

There are three locker door sizes available at the MBOX locker:

  • Medium: 14 in x 8 in x 19 in
  • Large: 14 in x 12 in x 19 in

 

Maximum of 15kgs per package.

Packages must be packed securely. Packages that weigh more than 15kg or are larger than 14in x 12in x 19in cannot be sent nor stored using an MBOX Smart Locker.

Only one package should be placed inside one locker door. For example, if you have 3 packages, they should be placed inside three (3) different locker doors. You will receive 3 different pick-up codes, one for each package.

MBOX APP

Scan QR Code below  OR download the MBOX App via your Smartphone app store.

No, the MBOX App is not required for package pickups. Without the MBOX App,  you may  still pickup packages by entering the pickup code sent to you via SMS text.

BUT the MBOX  APP is  required to use some features such as STORAGE function and the App also has a lot of very useful & practical features such as Nearby Lockers, Package History, Remote Pickup and MBOX QR which allows you to pick-up multiple packages quickly.

MBOX HOSTS & LOCATIONS

Hosting an MBOX will not only modernize the property, but also demonstrate added care by the building management to the people who occupy and reside in the building. Moreover,  building staff can focus  more on their job instead of keeping up with the increasing number of packages.

That’s great! An MBOX locker is a great modern amenity to any building or community.
If you are interested to host an MBOX locker in your building or store, please send us the following details to info@mbox.com.ph:

  • Full Name
  • Email Address
  • Contact Number
  • Building Name
  • Complete Building Address
  • Total Number of Tenants/Occupants in the Building
  • Attach photos of the proposed location of the locker taken from different angles. Please send photo of nearly vicinity as well.

 

Note: Location Requirement:

  • Highly visible, ground level 1 sqm of space protected from rain
  • High-occupancy/ Foot Traffic
  • Strong 4G cellular signal
  • 220V electrical outlet  ( minimal 100W load capacity )

 

Once we receive the complete details, expect a reply from us within 48 working hours. We look forward to talking to you soon!

A 220V electrical outlet is needed  to power the MBOX locker.  

MBOX smart lockers only consume a very minimal 100w load which is the equivalent of about 2 electrical light bulbs.

The Lockers will not work when there is no electricity. A lot of buildings that hoss an MBOX Smart Locker have standby generators, in which case the lockers should be online and working again after a few seconds. Given than the MBOX smart lockers only consume very minimal electricity load ( 100w) , it can easily be included in the partial generator capacity load during brownouts. 

Yes, We have a 24/7 monitoring system that alerts us for any downtime whether due to a power interruption or 4G signal failure. 

No, as a host you would not be liable for packages inside the locker or the locker itself unless there is malicious intent or negligence .

The locker needs both  Internet and electricity to work. The locker connects via 4G / cellular data with an option to switch to a backup WiFi  if provided by the building.  

The MBOX locker definitely provides much better security versus a box left at the reception desk.

First, only registered couriers and users can place an item inside the MBOX.

Second, only the recipient can retrieve the package using the unique pick-up code sent to his mobile.

Third,  round-the-clock CCTV surveillance cameras capture and record  package arrival and retrieval to ensure the safety and accountability of every package.

MBOX lockers are heavy-duty, rust-resistant,  water-resistant, and heat-resistant. But just like any equipment , the lockers can be damaged by floods, fire,  and other natural catastrophes.
