How Are You Going To Handle Your USPS Business Address Change?

Do you have a USPS business address change that you need to take care of right now? It is going to be easy enough to take care of, and you can actually do it online. A few years back, I ran into a USPS address change that didn’t work out so easily though. Let me tell you my story, just in case it pertains to the type of business address change you have in mind. People have all kinds of businesses these days, so you will see how some address changes can fit into my story.

Handling USPS Business Address Change

I will also tell you some general pointers about how to go about handling a USPS business address change. Now for my story. Several years ago, I changed my address with the post office from a residence in Texas to my new residence in South Carolina. First of all, I do work from home. Second, I am telling you this story because it is interesting and will tell you something you might not know about switching an address from a residence to a business and vice versa.

I moved into my condo that I purchased, and it is part of the resort. The resort allowed me, at first, to receive mail there because after all, I owned my unit, my primary residence. However, there is no mailbox there for me. They don’t have a setup like that. It was a very interesting situation, and by the way, the post office did indeed change my address from one residence to the other. Now let me tell you what happened when I tried to change it again.

Change Residential Address

I got tired of the hassle with the mail, so I changed my mailing address. The post office sent me a slip saying they couldn’t change my address from a business address to a residential address. Talk about a headache. So I dealt with the change of address on my own. Ultimately, it wasn’t so bad and not a big deal, but it was a very strange situation. So keep that in mind as you handle your change of address.

Now, as for submitting your request, why not submit your request online? It would be rather easy to be honest. To do it, you just go to the USPS website and the moving checklist change of address section. You do have to provide your debit or credit card information for identity verification purposes, and it does cost $1. However, you don’t have to worry about going to the busy post office to take care of your business. Doesn’t that sound great?

If you want to handle your request online, it really is that simple. You will have it done in no time. Then when you get it all straightened out, you will have your mail arriving at your new business address, piece of cake. Does that sound like a plan to you? If you make it to the post office instead, that’s okay, too, but now you know it can be done online.

Don’t let my story make you think it is going to be difficult. I told you my story just in case you had a home business that is switching to a commercial address or vice versa. That you may want to handle with the post office directly. You would think they would have solutions for everything, but I got tangled in the web there for a minute. It’s okay though because my condo is a very unique and very cool situation in general that doesn’t need to fit in with the way that the USPS and everyone else handles their business.
