Important Places to Notify About Your Change of Address
Once you get off the phone with our Kansas City movers to schedule their arrival on your moving day, you’ll most likely mentally check-off relocation tasks you’ve completed. Amongst the flurry of getting things done, notifying important places and people of your move to Kansas City may slip your mind. When you fail to notify these places of importance about your move, you risk a delay in service and mail delivery to your new home. With the help of our Missouri movers of All My Sons, we can provide a moving change of address checklist of who to notify about your move to Kansas City.
Local Post Office
Before you start going over your moving change of address checklist, the first place to notify about your move to Kansas City is your local post office. You can either fill out a “change of address” form in person or log online to change your address on the United States Postal Service website. Once you’ve filled out the form, all your mail will be forwarded to the new address for up to 12 months, giving you ample time to update your address with other places of importance. Don’t forget to change your address with the local post office about a week or two before our Kansas City movers arrive on the day of your move.
Social Security Administration
If you receive benefits or other letters from the Social Security Administration, don’t forget to check them off on your “moving change of address” checklist. Access your “my Social Security” account online or call (800)772-1213 to notify about your move to Kansas City.
Of course, you may receive your paychecks via direct deposit, but you still need to update your employer regarding your move. Giving them the new address will ensure you’ll receive paystubs, tax forms, and other important documents at the right address.
Another place to notify about your move to Kansas City are utility companies. If you don’t want to arrive at your new home with no electricity, gas, or water services, contact the appropriate companies to confirm service activation at the new address. A couple of weeks before our Kansas City movers arrive at the new home, contact your current utility companies to schedule a date to have services shut off in the current home to prevent incurring extra charges.
Don’t forget to let those you hold closest to your heart know about your move to Kansas City. Updating your address with friends and family will let them know where to send gifts and other important items to the right address. In addition, they’ll need to know where to go to attend your housewarming!
