Moving Home: How to redirect your mail December 20, 2018

Follow this guide if you are moving home and want to ensure you’ve redirected your mail properly. There are few things in the world that would focus one’s attention more keenly on the amount of mail you get, both legitimate and of the spam variety, than getting ready to move. Thankfully the Royal Mail has a service that will redirect your mail to your new address for a no fuss no muss solution.


In today’s society we needs must jealously guard our identities from various hucksters and a plethora of evil doers intent on using us for their nefarious activities. Having full control of your mail and private correspondence is very important.


Royal Mail needs at least 5 working days’ worth of notice to arrange a Redirection. That said you can apply for the Redirection up to 3 months before your actual move or 6 months after your moving date. It pays to have the Redirection set up in advance. You can redirect your mail to a UK or even an overseas address for 3, 6 or 12 months for a fee for each different last name. To set up the redirection you will need the following:

– Names and dates of birth of everyone in the household that needs their mail redirected
– address and postcode of both your old and new addresses.


You have three options when setting up your Redirection. You can either set up the Redirection online (this method is probably the least troublesome), by Mail or at your local Post Office. Word to the wise, always work through Royal Mail themselves rather than some third party. The Redirection service is only provided for mail which Royal Mail delivers to your door.


Online: You can only post online applications for a maximum of eight people. If you’re moving more than eight you will have to visit an actual post office. Step one: Register on the Royal Mail website as a customer if you haven’t already. Your payment card must be registered at your old address. If it is registered at your new address Royal Mail will ask a few more security questions. The entire process is completed online and paid for online.



Via Post: Download, print and fill in the application form, Collect proof of identity documents (they must be originals, which will be returned to you). Send Identification for each person with a different last name. There is a list of appropriate proof of identity documents available from the Royal Mail site. You can only pay by cheque for this method, you will need to send a separate cheque for each different last name. Post the completed form, cheque/s to the address indicated on the website. They will send you a confirmation letter.


Post Office: Download, print and fill in the application form, Collect proof of identity documents (they must be originals, which will be returned to you).Take the application form, proof of identity and payment to your nearest Post Office. They will still send a confirmation letter to your old address.


Keep in mind, it may take a little longer for your mail to reach you, since it will be sent to the old address’ sorting office first and then sent on to the new address. Now you can tick this off your checklist – thanks to Man And Van Services by Anytime Removals.
