Moving away from your home temporarily, how to receive your mail, and packages. Sometimes, people move to a new city for a fresh start, or a job promotion, and in the process of moving a couple by the name of Bob Harris, and Sue Doe, have decided to buy a house that needs a lot of tender, love, and repair. They find a contractor, and sign an agreement for their house at 6345 Woodycreek Lane to be finished, and ready to be moved back into in a 6 month time frame. Sue decides to fill out a temporary forwarding order through the United States Postal Service, and within one week she starts to receive mail, and packages from 6345 Woodycreek Lane, and Bob Harris, meanwhile hasn’t received any mail, or packages from their house that needs a lot of repairs at the moment. How can Mr. Harris start receiving his mail at the same address that Sue Doe submitted a temporary forwarding order? The first thing that, Mr. Harris should do is go to the local post office, and ask for a temporary forwarding order, once the temporary forwarding order is completed, Mr. Harris should anticipate that he should start receiving mail, and packages one week after submitting the temporary forwarding order. When filling out the temporary forwarding order it’s important to put down the correct dates that the project will be completed, and you’ll be able to receive your mail, and packages on time, without any delays. What should you do if you’re not receiving any mail at your temporary address? Go to your home that is being repaired, and check to see if the mailbox is full of mail, or if there are any packages on the ground. Normally packages left on the ground, can trigger porch pirates that a house might be vacant, and will give them the opportunity to attempt to come back to steal even more, so staying on top of your mail, and packages is very important. What can you do to prevent mail from being left at your residence that your temporarily away from? Take the mailbox down, and put it away in a safe place until the contractor has finished the work. If you have time, go to the local post office, and speak to the letter carrier to let them know that you actually submitted a temporary forwarding order for Doe, and Harris, and then more than likely the letter carrier will flag the address to let other letter carrier’s know that 6345 Woodycreek Lane has a temporary forwarding order for 6 months. If Doe, and Harris order packages online, they need to go online, and fix their address credentials to ensure that their packages will be re-routed to their temporary address for a 6 month time frame.
