Do u want to put your mail on hold?? Here are some ways by which you can do it easily. So read these best ways to put your mail on hod if you are going on vacation.\
You spent months planning the perfect vacation and at last it’s time to leave. The bags are packed, the car is loaded, and the dog’s in the kennel. But wait. What about having days of mail stacking up in your mailbox where robbers and identity thieves might get their hands on it? No problem. Just sit down, fire up your PC, go online and arrange to have the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) hold your mail while you’re gone.
Now available online, the USPS’ mail holding service offers postal customers the option of having their mail held for from 3 to 30 days quickly and easily.
“When you go on vacation, the last thing you need is to be concerned about the safety of your mail while you’re away — our Hold Mail Service addresses this issue almost effortlessly,” said Francia G. Smith, USPS vice president and Consumer Advocate. “This service represents our continued commitment to increasing customer access — making it easier and more convenient for customers to use the Postal Service when and where they need to.”
How to Do It
Once you get online, just go to the Postal Service home page and click on the Hold Mail menu option.
You’ll be asked to enter your delivery address information and the dates on which you want the Postal Service to start and stop holding your mail.
At the end of the mail holding request process, you’ll be given a confirmation number so you can modify the request if you come home early or decide you want to stay on vacation a little bit longer.
The online service electronically notifies your local Post Office and all of your mail will be held for the time specified and delivery is resumed on the requested date.
Having the Postal Service hold your mail while you are away is one best steps you can take to prevent having your mail stolen.
Request Mail Holding by Telephone
You can also request the USPS’ mail holding service over the phone by calling toll-free 1-800-ASK-USPS and following the menu options.
Whether requested online or by phone, millions of Postal Service customers have taken advantage of this convenient service since its 2003 launch.
