PostalChanges.com offers a membership based service that specializes in providing assistance with your address change and moving needs.

The USPS service for changing your address can be filed for $1.05 online at usps.com or for free at a local post office if you prefer to file your own. Fees for address change services at various other state and government agencies vary, although many are free.

ACTIVATION OF AN ACCOUNT & Address Change Requests
In order to use the services provided, users must create and activate a PostalChanges.com account which is done by submitting a change of address request using our site. An account with PostalChanges.com lasts for the duration of your address change or a minimum of 90 days, whichever is longer, from the date of activation.
Once an account has been created, users must properly complete and submit the address change request consistent with the form requirements of the USPS. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that all information submitted is accurate, complete and consistent with the online address change form requirements of the USPS. PostalChanges.com will attempt to process an address change request using the exact information provided by the user. If an address change request is made to this service with incorrect, inconsistent or incomplete information, PostalChanges.com reserves the right to make necessary adjustments when reasonable, or to entirely refrain from completing the request. We assume no responsibility or liability for incorrect, inconsistent or incomplete address change requests resulting from a User’s errors, inaccuracies, or omissions. When applicable, we will make our best efforts to reach out to the customer to rectify any uncompleted requests.
Once the user has submitted the information through our system, PostalChanges.com will immediately attempt to complete their request. Once the address change request has been finalized and confirmed, any and all issues arising from the request to the USPS are no longer the responsibility of PostalChanges.com. For address change request to other government agencies, the user will be required to further complete and submit additional forms in order for their request to be complete. PostalChanges.com does not submit any requests on the user’s behalf beyond the USPS.
Individual address changes are intended when only one person is moving from that address. The change of address will be applicable for only that person and no others; if you receive mail by more than one name (such as a maiden name, married name, nickname, etc.) you will have to file additional address changes to have that mail forwarded. Family address changes are intended when entire households are moving to the same address and everyone has the same last name. If you have questions regarding your specific situation, please contact us to learn more.
Our change of address services may not be available for all address including certain PO boxes, mobile homes, individuals trying to forward personal mail at a business address, among others.
Activation of a PostalChanges.com account does not guarantee nor does it confirm that a change of address request has been successfully placed with the USPS or other government agencies. The address change confirmation email from PostalChanges.com only confirms we’ve successfully received your request, are attempting to process your request with the USPS, and gives you access to our additional services and benefits.
A change of address is deemed to begin on the 'start forwarding date' with temporary requests ending on the 'end forwarding date'. An extension to the end date of a temporary request is only obtainable if the request for the extension is made prior to the end forwarding date. Permanent requests expire after 6 months, per USPS guidelines.
Any edits to a change of address request must be made prior to the end forwarding date if the change is to have any effect. Certain edits to a request may necessitate a cancellation of the current request and resubmission of another to accommodate.
If there is already an active address change request for your address and name that was not placed by PostalChanges.com, we do not have access to cancel that request and are not able to submit an additional request until the original is either cancelled or expired. It is the responsibility of the User to ensure that any active change of address requests are cancelled so that we may process the new request through PostalChanges.com. If we cannot schedule an address change request because there is an existing one, PostalChanges.com will not be held responsible in any way for not scheduling such a request.
PostalChanges.com is only a service provider. We do not handle any physical items for customers nor are we in any way responsible for physically forwarding mail. We only assist in placing or guiding users with their address change requests. As such, we are not responsible for any non-delivery of items or mail forwarding issues. Should any issues arise, please contact your local post office.
CANCELLATION OF AN ACCOUNT
