I have family friends in America and they often send me clothing over which is cheaper to buy in America rather than England. I did however forget to give them my new University address and they have duly sent the package to my old address.

Is there any way of changing where the package is sent to? As it will be rather difficult going to my old accomodation to retrieve it and plus someone may have already seen it and nicked off with it.

Rep given to all helpers.

Thanks guys
David

You can do it on the post office website.

Here

Contact Royal Mail (and maybe ask your Postman, he should know). If you slip him a few quid he might be willing to pass it on to a trustworthy neighbour.

If it has already been sent then I don't think there is much you can do.

Best to speak to the Post Office (maybe your local sorting office) directly.

I think this is my best option."For a small additional fee, we can hold mail sent to your old address until your Redirection has been set up. Please call 08457 740 740 for more information".

I will try and get them to hold it at my local sorting office and collect it from there. It should be another week before arrival, but I feel its best to get it organised now. The £7.35 one month rate is also an option but for one parcel this is seen as a bit steep.

Its now time to update my friends across the pond with my revised University address.

Thanks guys, rep given!!

If the item is shipped with USPS, will they pass it on to royal mail?? Or do they have their own courier?
