Going on be gone? Get your mail held with just one click!

Going on vacation? Wonderful! Have a great time, and make sure and send a postcard or two to your friends and family!

While you are gone, would you like the Postal Service to hold your mail to keep it from piling up? Think about it – nothing says, “Please rob our house while we’re gone!” like a mailbox full of letters and magazines. And besides, arranging to have your mail held has never been easier, thanks to Hold Mail Service from the Postal Service.

Now you can go online and arrange to have your mail held from three to 30 days. Just go to www.usps.com and search for “Hold Mail Service.” The site is encrypted for your protection.

First enter your ZIP Code at the prompt. Then enter your address information and the dates the mail should be held. At the end of the process, you are given a confirmation number to modify the request if you come back early or if you decide you want to stay on vacation a little bit longer. The online service then electronically notifies your local post office, which holds all your mail for the time specified. Delivery resumes on your requested date.

Planning to be gone a while? You may prefer to have your mail travel with you. That’s easy, too, with Premium Forwarding Service. If you are planning to be away from home for more than two weeks and up to a year, you can have all of your mail forwarded to your temporary address by Priority Mail. Stop by your local post office for more information.

Have a great vacation!
