Places to Notify About a Change of Address

For your upcoming move to South Atlanta, there’s a lot you must take care of before our Georgia movers stop by to lend you a hand. They may include shopping for new furniture and décor, contacting your new home security provider to schedule an installation, and so on. However, above all else, you should have a change of address checklist. Failure to change your address with government organizations, home service providers, etc. can lead to delays in home services and mail delivery. Not to worry, our South Atlanta movers list some of the places to notify about a change of address before moving to South Atlanta.


Post Office

The obvious place to start is your local post office. About a couple of weeks before the big move, head down to the post office to fill out a “change of address” form in-person or do so online at the United States Postal Service official website.[1] Once you’ve done this, mail will be forwarded to the new address for up to a year, giving you plenty of time to finish going down your change of address checklist.


Social Security Administration

If you receive benefits or other letters from the Social Security Administration, they are another one of the places to notify about a change of address. You can either update your address by accessing your “my Social Security” account online or give them a call at (800) 772-1213 to do so over the phone.


Let Your Boss Know

Next on the list of places to notify about a change of address should be your employer. Of course, you may receive your paychecks via direct deposit, however, your employer will need an updated address in case they must send pay stubs or tax forms.


Utility Companies

Avoid arriving at your new home with no water, gas, or electricity active by contacting the appropriate utility companies ahead of time. About a couple of weeks before our South Atlanta movers arrive to help you move out, contact your utility companies to schedule a service cancellation and prevent surcharges after you’ve moved out. Next, schedule a service activation for the new address to ensure all utilities will be active when you arrive on moving day.


Family & Friends

Of course, you can’t forget about those who you hold near and dear to your heart. Let your loved ones know about your new address by texting it to them so they can easily plug it into Google Maps or Waze when they want to visit.
