i know this has been posted before and i cant find it, but , if you move can you tell fed ex and ups that you moved? how does this happen? or do you just have to start over again.

I'm having the same concerns. We moved a couple weeks ago and went by the house today and there were a few delivery slips on the door from UPS. Yikes! Now I will have to drive by the old house every day!

I'm almost possitive you can have your deliveries forwarded...Have you called UPS/USPS/Fed-Ex?

I called UPS and FedEx when I was moving and was told that they don't forward. I'm in PA so I don't know if other states are the same.
I have a daily pick up UPS account for my business so I was stunned that they wouldn't accept a forwarding address. Then, after I had moved, UPS called me a couple times with packages that were addressed to my previous residence and asked about sending them to me at my new address. I don't know if its because I had an account or what.
FedEx said that the only thing I could do was fill out a "signature required form" so nothing would be left at my old address but they wouldn't forward it,like duh. I did the signature form anyway and within a week FedEx had left a package at my old address which my realtor found and sent to me!
Its totally screwed up if you ask me.
I would suggest you contact all the places like ePrize and such and change your address with them. I did that and ePrize did send one of prizes that I won at the old address to me at the new one. I know you can't do that with everyone but I did it with every place I could think of.Check the contest sites you frequent, a lot have instructions on changing your address with them.
I also gave all my info to the new owners of my old house and they are still sending me stuff that gets delivered there! Even mail which I have a forward on.
Moving sucks for a lot of reasons, but its the worst for us sweepers. :worry:

Thanks for the info. That is kinda what I thought. There isn't much we can do.

That's why you can't move once you start sweeping! :laugh:

Fedex will forward an item, but they must be contacted by the sender--not the recipient.

That's just plain old stupid. Someone needs to change that :mad2:

You are probably just the person to start the uprising. Go ahead I will sign, scream on t.v. or whatever you plan to do to get this changed! I want to be able to move also! :laugh:
