Change of Address Checklist – Who to Notify After Moving Homes

Moving Day

One very important to-do that people forget to act on before and after their move is to notify services of their address change. For obvious reasons, forgetting to change your address could lead to important mails getting lost. To help you out, we created a printable checklist you can use to make sure you aren’t forgetting any important businesses or services that need to be notified.

Before the Move Essentials

Mail Forwarding: go to USPS and set up mail forwarding. Save yourself a trip to the local post office by changing the address online. Another option is to request the post office to hold your mail for a set period of time. Click here to learn more.

Old Checks: in most cases, you should still be able to use checks with your old home address. However, some places may not accept them, especially if they are out of state. Consider ordering a new checkbook if you are nearly done with your current one.

Paperless (Online) Mail: As you go through the list of services below, find out if they offer an option for paperless mails. This will save yourself the trouble of having to change addresses in the future.
