  • Get a change of address kit from the post office. It will give you most of what you need to know.

    Yes, doctors, dentists, basically anything you have to go to an office for. School districts, church if you have one. If you're going to a local bank, there will probably be a change there as well. Call your various utilities to set up a service shutdown, call the utility providers in the new location to make sure you have lights, heat and water when you move in and that you know what deposits, if any, are needed.

  • Don't forget the phone company if you have a land line.

  • Sign to transfer medical records before you leave, When you get new address- apply for drivers license change of address. Also it helps to have a specific notebook which includes all of the companies addresses and phone #'s of the service providers you currently have as well as the new ones who will be servicing you. Call /look on line for the Chamber of Commerce in the town you are moving to and get a welcome packet from them. It will give you a lot of access to the new information you will need. Post office has change of address. They will forward your new mail - I believe for about a month if there is someone you forget to notify.
