Who to Notify of Your Move to St. Louis

After deciding it’s time to move to St. Louis, you’re getting your ducks in a row to ensure the move goes smoothly. This may entail calling Missouri movers to help you move efficiently into the new home, scheduling an installation with your home security provider, registering your children with a new school, and so on. Don’t forget, at the top of your moving checklist is updating your address with various places of importance. Failure to do so can lead to delays in home services and mail delivery. Our St. Louis movers are happy to list places to notify about your move to St. Louis.


The Post Office

Obviously, your local post office should be one of the first places to notify about your move to St. Louis. A couple of weeks before our St. Louis residential movers arrive to help you move, visit the post office to fill out a “change of address” form in-person, or go online to the official United States Postal Service website [1] to do so. As a result, mail will be forwarded to the new address for a year, giving you more than enough time to finish going through your change of address checklist.


The Boss

Even though you may be receiving your paychecks through direct deposit, you’ll still need to update your address with your employer. This way, they’ll have an up-to-date address on file in case they need to mail pay stubs and tax forms.


Utility Companies

What will really throw a wrench in your moving plans is to arrive at the new house with no gas, water, no electricity active. One of the most vital places to notify about your move to St. Louis is your utility company. Therefore, get in touch with the relevant utility companies a few weeks before moving day to schedule a service activation. Then, schedule a service cancellation for the old address to guarantee you won’t incur surcharges once you’ve moved out.


If you receive benefits or letters from the Social Security Administration, then they should be next on the list of places to notify of your move to St. Louis. Notify them by changing your address via your my Social Security account [2] or call (800) 772-1213.


Loved Ones
