Moving? Change Of Address Tips

Relocating to a new city (or just a new address) means having to change your mailing address.  This can seem like a daunting task considering the number of people and companies that need that information to be up to date.  Here are a few tips to make the process easier.

Tip # 1 – Make a checklist of who will need to be notified of your change of address. An easy way to do this is to go through your email, mail, address book, and cell phone contacts to see who will need to be notified. This includes family members, friends, credit card companies, banks, investment accounts, magazine subscriptions, frequent travel programs, auto payment billing, insurance companies, utility companies, healthcare providers, wireless phone providers, auto club, other club memberships, employers, vehicle registrations, etc.

Tip # 2 – Complete a change of address with the post office. This can be done online at the United States Postal Service’s website ( http://www.usps.com ) or by obtaining a change of address form from your local post office location.  The USPS website gives useful information regarding your change of address and what to expect of the process.

Tip # 3 – If you don’t have your permanent address in your new city yet then you may want to consider obtaining a PO box or mailbox service in your new location until your new address is established.  You can do a change of address to the temporary address. Then when you are moved into your new home, you can process another change of address to the new address.

Relocating to a new city? Have a plan!

Relocating to a new city can be exciting…and overwhelming! The best way to keep it together is to set a plan for your move.

Step 1 – Create a task list

Start with a to do list of tasks that you will need to complete prior to, during, and immediately after the move. Some tasks to consider are arranging for movers, setting up temporary lodging, deciding what items to keep with you during your move, arranging for pet care, arranging the sale of your current home, making travel arrangements, establishing a relationship with a real estate professional in your new city, packing, utilities cancellation, and more.

Step 2 – Arrange a time line

Once you have your list of tasks that need to be done you will want to arrange a time line for arranging these items to be taken care of. Be sure to give yourself some “wiggle room” in the time line to anticipate any snags.

Step 3 – Implement your plan

Once you have your time line you are ready to set your plan into motion. Take one item at a time, and relax!

Remember, a good real estate professional specializing in relocation can be of great help in helping you to coordinate your move.

Relocating doesn’t have to be overly stressful, and it can be fun! Being organized helps to keep it a positive experience!
