Does the USPS forward packages?

Basically, I ordered something on August 10th, expecting it to ship within 24 hours (as the site states), but it wasn't for some reason and actually didn't end up shipping until August 26th.

We just moved into our house on August 23rd.

The address that I had with Paypal was my apartment address (I did change it, as of August 15th, because I knew we were moving) and when I changed it, I ASSUMED that when the seller of the products got around to sending it, the new address would be the shipping address.

Well, I was wrong.

When the transaction occurred, my apartment was the valid address. When she printed the label on the 26th... that address appeared, rather than my new updated address.

We have to turn in our apartment keys by Saturday. All of my mail is being forwarded (or I changed the sending address on all of the bills), but I'm not sure about packages.

As long as you have the PO forwarding all your mail the package will be forwarded too.

the packages will be fowarded also but will take a little longer to arrive. when you move and have your mail fowarded, the usps will foward for 12/18 months from the day you fill out the new address/fowarding card info.

I had a very similar situation and it just took longer to get my fluffy mail. As long as you go into the PO and fill out the forwarding form, they will get to you.
