USHoldMail.com is operated by a private company which is not a government website, nor is it affiliated with, endorsed, or approved by the USPS or any government agency. USHoldMail.com offers a membership based service that specializes in providing assistance with scheduling and placing mail hold requests that the USPS cannot accommodate, while simultaneously offering customers ancillary benefits. All services include experienced and helpful support, available by phone and e-mail. The membership fee we charge is in exchange for the services and benefits we provide, not for the actual mail hold itself. The USPS service for holding mail can be filed for free online at usps.com or at a local post office if you prefer to file your own, although certain scheduling restrictions may apply.
