4-5 Weeks Before Your Move

  • Contact or visit your local Post Office to obtain a Change of Address form. You can also obtain this form online at the postal service website by visiting: www.usps.com
  • Give a change of address to the following:
    1. Banks
    2. Schools
    3. Friends & family
    4. Insurance company
    5. Doctors & specialists
    6. Cellular phone company
    7. Credit card companies
    8. Subscriptions (Magazine, newspaper, etc.)
  • By this point you should have already hired a mover and received an estimate. Check with you mover to confirm that all the details of the move are set. If you are packing on your own, make the proper arrangements and get the right supplies.
  • Make the arrangements to connect and disconnect your cable, internet, electric and any other services you currently use. Dealing with this at an earlier date will prevent any date and time conflicts you may incur.
  • You may have to switch banks because your current bank branches may be sparse in your new town. Investigate the popular banks in the area you will be living in so that you can close and open new bank accounts as needed.
  • Check what the requirements are to receive a new driver's license and complete auto registration at your new motor vehicle location.
  • If you will be making an international move, make sure your passport is up to date and has not expired. Passports generally take three weeks to process.
