Whether you're going across town or across the country, moving can be a stressful time. Below are some things to remember as you prepare for your move that can make the process go a little more smoothly.
Update your mailing address
Change your address with important service providers
Start with your banks, credit companies, & magazine subscriptions.
Tell your job to update your address for their records and to make sure they have a forwarding address if you are changing jobs with your move.
Don't forget to update your shipping address for places you frequently shop online or order delivery from.
Create a list of people who will need your new address
Contact utility companies
Make sure you contact all of your new utility providers to set up service for your new home.
If you are buying a new home, you want to start your service the day of the closing.
If you are renting, make sure to set up utilities for the first day of your lease.
Don't forget to contact the utility companies to stop service at your old home and tell them where to send your final bill.
Unplug, disassemble, & clean appliances
Pack an "open first" box
