Places to Notify About Your Move to Orlando

After you decide your new home will be in Orlando, it’s time to start making some preparations to ensure the move will be efficient. These preparations may include booking Orlando movers for a stress-free moving process, catching up on final payments on the new home, scheduling installation of a new Wi-Fi service, and so on. However, finding out who to notify about your move to Orlando should be at the top of your moving checklist. Don’t worry, our Orlando movers give some insight about important places (and people) you should inform.


Local Post Office

This is a no-brainer: your local post office should be one of the first places to notify about your move to Orlando. A few weeks before our Florida movers arrive to transport your belongings, head down to the local post office to fill out a “change of address” form in-person or go to the USPS website[1]to update your address online. This process will forward your mail to the new address for up to 12 months, giving you plenty of time to change your address with other institutions.



The next place to notify about your move to Orlando should be your employer. You’re most likely receiving paychecks via direct deposit, but you still need to update your address with them to receive paystubs and tax forms. 


Utility Companies

The last thing you want when you arrive at the new address in Orlando is to have no water, utilities, or gas active. So, about two weeks before moving day, get in contact with the appropriate utility companies to make sure everything is set before the move. First, schedule a service cancellation for the soon-to-be old address to guarantee you won’t incur additional charges after moving out. Next, schedule a service activation for the new address so you’ll have all utilities active once you arrive. 


Social Security Administration

Do you receive social security benefits or letters from the SSA? Then they should be next on your list of places to notify about your move to Orlando. You can either change your address online through your my Social Security account [2]or contact customer service at (800) 772-1213.


Loved Ones

Don’t forget about the ol’ gang before your move to Orlando. Let your friends and family know that you’ll be relocating to Orlando and provide the new address. The new address will come in handy when they want to visit the new home or mail your gifts and other important items.
