Between finding a new place to live, hiring a team of qualified movers, packing up your belongings, and scheduling a moving day, odds are you will be spread pretty thin while planning a new move. One thing that slips the mind of many movers is the need to notify relevant parties about their change of address. Luckily for you, Priority movers in Temecula, California are here to offer some tips on how and when to change your address.
Start by notifying the post office of your change of address. Notify the post office of your change of address and they will forward all mail from your previous residence to the new one for up to 60 days. That should give you enough time to take stock of your bills and change any relevant addresses without letting any fall through the cracks.
The next most important thing is to get all your utility bills switched to the new address. If you are keeping your service and just transferring the address, switching should be simple. You can call your utility providers and switch over the address by phone or online. If you are moving out of their range of service, then you will need to set up new utility bills at the address of your new residence. Try to schedule it so utilities get turned on the day of the move or the night before, that way you have air conditioning or electricity as soon as you move in.
Tax Agencies and Bank
Both the IRS and any state tax agencies need to be notified when you change your address. The IRS has a simple change of address form on their website. Visit your state’s government website to figure out how to notify and state tax agencies of a change in address. You also need to notify your bank so they can send your monthly statements to your new address.
You will also need to notify your home or rental insurance company so they know where you switch the policy to.
You will also need to change your billing/shipping addresses for any subscriptions services and online stores, like Amazon.
