Change of Address: Don’t Get Lost in the Mail


  • The U.S. Postal Service (USPS): This is the big one! File your change of address with USPS at least two weeks before your move to ensure seamless mail forwarding. You can do this online at or by visiting your local post office.
  • Update Your Subscriptions and Important Contacts: Don’t let important bills or magazines get lost in the shuffle. Notify magazine subscriptions, online retailers, banks, credit card companies, insurance providers, and any other organizations you regularly receive mail from.
  • Update Government Agencies: Inform the Social Security Administration, Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), and voter registration of your new address to avoid any delays or disruptions.

Pro Tip: Consider using a service like “Change of Address Wizard” offered by USPS to streamline the notification process with multiple contacts.

Utilities: Light Up Your New Life (Literally)

  • Schedule Disconnections and Connections: Contact your current utility providers (electricity, gas, water, trash) to schedule disconnection at your old place and connection at your new home. Aim to do this at least two weeks in advance to avoid any gaps in service.
  • Research New Providers: Moving to a new area might present options for different utility providers. Research potential providers in your new location to see if you can secure a better deal.

We Are The Movers Pro Tip: Moving during peak season? Contacting utility companies well in advance is crucial to avoid last-minute service disruptions.

Essentials on the Move: Don’t Forget the Important Stuff


  • Schedule Medical and Dental Records Transfers: Ensure a smooth transition for your healthcare by requesting your medical and dental records to be transferred to your new providers.
  • School Records for the Little Ones: If you have children, don’t forget to request school transcripts and immunization records to avoid any delays in enrolling them at their new school.
  • Update Your Insurance Policies: Inform your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance company of your move to ensure continued coverage and potentially adjust the policy for your new home.

We Are The Movers Caring Tip: Moving can be stressful, so take care of yourself! Schedule doctor and dentist appointments before the move to avoid any disruptions in your healthcare routine.

Packing Power: Tips for a Smooth Transition

  • Declutter Before You Pack: Moving is a perfect opportunity to purge unwanted belongings. Donate, sell, or recycle items you no longer need to lighten your load and potentially save on moving costs.
  • Label Everything Clearly: This might seem obvious, but clear and detailed labeling is crucial for a smooth unpacking process at your new home. Include the room the box belongs to and a brief description of the contents.
  • Pack an Essentials Box: Pack a separate box with essentials like toiletries, medications, a change of clothes, and basic supplies to avoid digging through boxes on your first night in your new home.

We Are The Movers Packing Pro Tip: Color-code your boxes by room to make unpacking even easier. For example, use blue tape for the kitchen and green tape for the bathroom.
