Who to Notify When You Move?

Getting ready for a change of address is a lot easier than you think, as long as you have a list of all the places you need to update your address with. Our residential movers in Fort Myers have a list of the common places you will want to notify of a change of address, but don’t forget to double-check for other companies you may have subscribed to!

Post Office

The first place to notify of a change of address is the post office. You will want to make sure that any mail you receive regularly is not sent to your old address. Ask the post office to forward your mail for a year or you can change your address. There is no need to go to the post office in person, simply go online and update your address about a week before moving.

Tax Agencies

You will want to make sure to notify of a change of address with the IRS and other tax agencies so that you can avoid any penalties. You can search the web for an official IRS form in your state, which allows you to update your information easily.

Social Security Administration

If you collect social security, you will certainly want to make sure to follow through with a change of address to avoid missing a payment. You can find the form to do so online or by calling the SSA at (800)772-1213

Gas and Electric

Once you know where you will be living, make sure to turn off or cancel gas and electric services at your old home to avoid additional charges. Update your change of address with FPL or your electric provider before moving into your new home to make sure there is power when you arrive.

Phone, Cable, and Internet

Similar to gas and electric, you will want to call about a change of address for your internet, cable, and phone bill. If they are all bundled with the same provider, this will be easy. If not, make sure to call each company separately and let them know of your change of address.

Banks and Credit Card Companies

You may dread getting these statements every month, but it’s very important to make sure that your change of address is confirmed with the bank and your credit card company so that your personal information does not get into the wrong hands.
