Who to Notify About Your Move to Greenville
You’ve finally made the decision to move to Greenville, whether it’s due to a family situation or for work, it’s time to prepare for the move as early as possible. Preparations may include contacting our South Carolina movers to lend you a hand, installing new home security system, or finalizing any last-minute payments on the new home. Don’t forget, though, you also need to update your address with various places of importance. Failure to do so can lead to a delay in mail delivery and utility services. Our Greenville movers of All My Sons Moving & Storage can go into further detail about who to notify about your move to Greenville.
The Local Post Office
Before you start becoming flustered at the prospect of contacting various places to update your address, go to your local post office first. Since the post office is the very place where you receive your mail, head down there to fill out a “change of address” form or go online to the United States Postal Service website  to fill it out at home. You’ll have mail forwarded to your new address for up to 12 months, giving you enough time to notify other places of importance of your move to Greenville. Do this about a week or two before the day of your move to ensure you’ll have recent mail delivered to the new address.
Once you’ve filled out the postal service form online, contact relevant utility companies to confirm you’ll have service once you move to Greenville. The last thing anyone wants is to arrive at their brand new home only to be left in the dark, with no air conditioning or heat. Give the appropriate utility companies a call to schedule a service activation to ensure you’ll have gas, electricity, and water running after moving to Greenville. Don’t forget to also schedule a service cancellation date to avoid incurring extra charges from the old residence after you move.
It’s a no-brainer that most of us receive our paychecks via direct deposit, so you may not think to update your address with your employer for that reason. Even though you don’t receive paychecks via USPS, you still need to notify your employer of your move to Greenville as a way to obtain tax forms and paystubs you may need in the future.
Family & Friends
If you’re still unsure about who to notify about your move to Greenville, don’t forget about the ol’ gang. Let your loved ones know about your move to Greenville before you make the journey to your new home. How else will they find their way to the new home via GPS for your housewarming? Or where will they send important items and gifts that they’ve bought for you?
