Mover’s Guide Behind the Counter Program

The Mover’s Guide Behind the Counter Program is here to stay! Below are a few reminders about program compliance:

n Continue to keep Mover’s Guide copies behind the counter. No Mover’s Guide copies should be placed in the inner or outer lobby or on the retail counters.

n Retail associates should encourage their customers requesting change-of-address information to go online to Internet change-of-address (ICOA) transactions provide customers with the most convenient, safe, and secure way to change their address. Furthermore, ICOA transactions reduce processing time, improve address accuracy, and generate significant revenue for the Postal Ser­vice.

n Advise customers to take an ICOA Message Card to reinforce the online change-of-address message.

n Customers unwilling or unable to submit their change of address at should be given a com­plete, unopened Mover’s Guide.

Note: The Mover’s Guide Behind the Counter Program is part of the ad-hoc section of the 2010 Retail Customer Experience Program. While offices are not scored in this section of the Retail Customer Experience evaluation, it is still imperative that your Post Office be compliant with the program throughout the year by keeping Mover’s Guide copies out of Post Office lobbies.
