Publication 75, Mover’s Guide, News

As of January 1, 2015, recycle any old copies of Publication 75, Mover’s Guide. All Post Offices™ should receive the new January–March 2015 issue of Publication 75 by December 31, 2014. 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 needed. 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 and Alerts

Alert: The Postal Service™ offers the Mover’s Guide as a service to our customers to assist them with forwarding mail to new addresses. Remember, provide only one Mover’s Guide per mover unless the visitor asks for more. In that event, provide no more than three. The Postal Service has determined that this number is sufficient for customers who use the Mover’s Guide to submit a Change of Address Order relating to a move.


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 Limit of one Mover’s Guide per customer. Upon request, up to three can be provided.

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