Important Places to Notify About Your Change of Address

With your moving day just weeks away, your plate is full of relocation tasks such as contacting our Maryland movers to help you move into your new home and making sure you’re up-to-date on any payments on the new home. Through all the flurry of excitement and stress, changing your address with various places should be at the top of the list. If you’re unsure who to change your address with, our Maryland movers share important places to notify about your move to Maryland.


The Local Post Office

One of the first important places to notify about your change of address after your move to Maryland should be your local post office – after all, this is the very place you receive all your mail from. You can either go to the post office to fill out a “change of address” form or go online to change your address on the United States Postal Service website.1 Make sure to change your address at least a week before our Maryland movers arrive. Failure to do so can lead to delays in mail delivery, which you don’t want if you receive important documents via postal service. Changing your address with the post office gives you ample time to update your address with other places of importance since your mail will be forwarded to the new address for up to 12 months.


Utility Companies

If you’re unsure about who to notify about a change of address after the post office, look to utility companies. The last thing you want is to arrive at the new home with no electricity, gas, or water. About two weeks before your move to Maryland, contact the appropriate utility companies to schedule a service cancellation so you don’t incur additional charges after you move out. Once you’ve completed this task, schedule a service activation for the new address to ensure all utilities you need will be started upon your arrival.


Your Employer

It’s a no-brainer that most of us prefer to receive our paychecks via direct deposit instead of snail mail, however, your employer is an important place to notify about your change of address. Providing your new address will give them the correct place to mail important documents such as tax forms and paystubs.


Loved Ones

Of course, you can’t forget those who love and care for you.  Your loved ones are important when it comes to who to notify about your change of address. Let them know about your move to Maryland and provide the new address. The new address will make it easier for them to navigate to your new home using either the Google Maps or Waze app.
