You may be wondering what to do if you put the wrong address on a package. Don’t panic when you noticed that you would need to change the delivery address of your package. You can certainly change your address with UPS. This post will help you get the information on how to change your UPS delivery address online.
How to change UPS delivery address online
With using UPS My Choice
UPS My Choice gives the option of an address change before the first delivery attempt. So you can log in to your UPS My Choice account and you will see this option inside your account. By using the option, you can easily redirect your package to any other address or you can also reschedule it to another delivery or pick up date. This is a very easy two-step process and the only thing you need is UPS My Choice account and the UPS tracking number for your order. You will always need to check whether your order is eligible for the UPS change of address option or not. Some items like high-value merchandise, perishable items and prescription medication may strictly need the receiver’s address.
Also, the best thing about the UPS change of address option is that you will not be charged anything extra for rescheduling or changing the address of the destination if you are a UPS My Choice premium member. To become a premium member, there is an annual fee of $19.99. If you are a frequent UPS user, then it is definitely worth considering. If you want to stay with a free account and you are redirecting your package to another address, you will have to pay $14.99 for the service. Moreover, there may be additional transportation fees outside the original delivery area. Therefore, you can see how the premium account is worth having when comparing the fees. If you still don’t want to pay for the premium due to the infrequency of using UPS, then we recommend redirecting your package to UPS Access Point locations. This way, all you have to pay is $5.99.
Without using UPS My Choice
