They never put in a forward request, usps keeps trying to deliver their shit to us. I put a note in the mailbox and it was good for a few days but carrier switched and the new one is ignoring the note.

But really my gripe is the old owners, put in a forward request yo! It’s standard practice when you move.

You can write “does not live here, return to sender”

Might be something you can do at the post office

My son still has his work mail delivered here. He hasn't lived here on almost 10 years and has his own house.

We do, every single time.

After a few months I wouldn’t be surprised to receive random mail. Right now it’s obvious they have never put a forward in place after they moved.

Toss it. It's their problem to do the address change.

At the place prior to this one we got mail for years from the previous owner.

He had run his business out of there and didn't inform his clients and vendors of the address change i guess. We got bills, checks and bank statements, insurance stuff. All kinds of things. We reached out a couple times her couldn't be bothered to stop by and get his stuff so i just started tossing it.

Make an honest effort, then start pitching it in the trash.  You might already be at that point.

This.  Alert them if it looks important or read it if it looks interesting, but most of it is crap anyway.  We got a few packages for the old owners soon after we moved here, then last Christmas they must have ordered from somewhere they had not used in 2 years.  Their daughter is still around here so she picked it up.

I hung the note in the opening for tomorrow. I will keep throwing it back in the mailbox as long as USPS picks it back up. If they don’t it goes in trash

when I moved you needed to do a $1 transaction on the USPS site and then send lots of useful coupons. Forwarding mail doesn't even need a trip to the post office and can be done in seconds

Pods, talk to the post office that sorts your mail, they'll divert any mail not yours for a period like 30 days?

That’s a thing? If so that I can do.


I am just shocked they didn’t put in a basic forward request, it’s a quick online form!

That is expected imho. We are talking daily mail inbound (USPS preview email), the carrier that read my note doesn’t leave it, whomever is delivering this week is leaving it.

We still get things most days from the previous residents. Straight into recycling with no further consideration. I wouldn't make any effort at all to fix their mail issues - 100% on them.

Build a new house the next time you move. You won't have that issue.
