Seems dodgy to me, the company has hold of all your account details and info, what if someone hacked the site.

Seems like a marketing dream, get someones home address and details of all suppliers of 'goods and services' to them
As its free the only way i can see a profit being generated is through selective selling of such data
I would rather keep my privacy thanks
Have not voted cold because maybe im just a cynical buigger :p

the dreaded paranoid members srike again!

Well, I bank at Natwest and recently had to change address details and they refused to do it without a passport or DL. The best that they could do without one was to forward my mail to a branch near my new address.

Don't see how these people can do it so simply. Seems worthy of caution to me.

It's set up by Royal mail so just different. Instead of getting RM to re-direct your mail they inform all the companies you select your new postal address.

Saves them money and they get paid by the companies that sign up!

I recently used Royal Mail to do mail forwarding and they sold on my new address to several direct mail companies! I presume there must have been an opt out somewhere (I hope anyway) but I guess I missed it. Very frustrating.

IamMoving.com is NOT a Royal Mail service, it is just that they support it.

I've used it before (in conjunction with a Royal Mail redirection of course!) and it worked fine. I've not seen any sort of increase in direct mail at all, which is a bit of a shame (more direct mail = more money for RM)

The whole prupose of the site is to gather data so that they can try and sell you services i.e gas electric phone and broadband services when you move into your new home.I know because i have dealt with the company behind them. As they say you don't get anything in life for nothing!!!

They only try and do this if you opt for them to contact you, the choice is yours if you want them to or not. Browse round the site to see the other services that they provide, this is how they probably get their money.

I've not had any problems as yet, touch...... beige coloured plastic.

I've voted cold to this. I used this service last month when I moved home.
I set up around 20 services to be informed of my change of address, after all the time I spent inputting my account & reference numbers it didn't even alert ANY of them electronically!

Instead it informed me that these organisations would not accept electronic notifications of address change, so I had to download a batch of letters in PDF format, print them off and send them individually.

This seemed a huge waste of time to me as I had to hunt out all my account information anyway and would have been quicker making up a standard letter myself. As it stands I still had to use 20 stamps, and now a company has more information about me than I'd otherwise like.

As an aside, I work for a local council and know why lots of organisations cannot be alerted electronically. We were contacted by iammoving.com a long time ago and were required to pay a fee to them for them to include us in their service. We told them to beat it as (A) we weren't paying them anything and (B) there is (or was) no system in place to satisfy us that the individual in question is who they say they are when requesting a change of address electronically. The organisations I attempted to contact via this service were obviously of the same opinion when I had to print out and sign all those letters.

Thats just my 2p on the matter, I did use their service, I just felt it was a huge waste of time and possibly a big mistake as far as personal information goes.

Not a bad idea, moving in a week or two. Even for the print outs it is easier, for the bank, I just entered a full stop on the online form in case it saves, after I printed out the PDF I just wrote my account numbers on...

I now have all prepared letters ready to send, thanks.

Also when I was looking down the list I noticed a few items I would of forgot about.

I checked the site with mcafee site advisor and they give it a green tick, http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/iammoving.com?ref=safe&client_ver=FF_26.5_6176&locale=en-GB&premium=false&client_type=FF&aff_id=0

They are English registered site, so some protection in law regarding Data Protection, seems like a good idea to me, and don't hate me, I am an Estate Agent. It might not be perfect, but if it helps at all then great news, especailly useful as a reminder for who you need to tell. My missus just keeps a list and has a standard letter on the computer, the most of them write back to you to confirm change of address anyway.
