Publication 75, Mover’s Guide, News

As of July 1, 2013, recycle any old copies of Publication 75, Mover’s Guide. All Post Offices™ should have received the new July–September 2013 issue of Publication 75 by June 30, 2013. Similar to last quarter’s shipment, the total quantity of Mover’s Guide copies sent to your facility may have been reduced. In an effort to reduce waste and account for more customers submitting change-of-address orders online, fewer Mover’s Guide copies are being printed. There are several things you can do to conserve as well:

n Make sure customers are aware that® is the most convenient, safe, and secure way for customers to submit a change-of-address order.

n Encourage carriers to take ICOA message cards on their routes instead of Mover’s Guide copies.

n Give Mover’s Guide copies out to moving customers only.

Important Reminders

n Copies of Mover’s Guide must be kept behind the counter ONLY, not in inner or outer lobbies or on clerk counters.

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

n Provide no more than three copies of Mover’s Guide to each customer.

n Mover’s Guide is printed and distributed four times a year.
