Whenever the customers of U.S Postal Service cannot receive mail then they put their mail on hold using this USPS hold mail service. As you all know that there are few ways through which you can submit a hold mail request like you can submit a USPS Hold Mail in writing or in person and also online using the official site of USPS. Once you have submitted the request you can enjoy your holidays without worrying about mail. The mail will be delivered to you after the ending date of request submitted but there are so many situations in which we have to cancel or modify the request. The situations can be different for everyone.
You can modify or cancel this request by telephone. To know how to do this read the text below.
