After the excitement of finding the right home, it's a busy time preparing to move. There is always much to do to get ready in addition to packing, so we want to share a quick list we use as a reminder of things do before/after moving to a new house.
Set up utilities
Set up/Move Phone, Internet, and TV services
Buy home insurance
Set up Property Taxes
Set up Condo Fee Payment
Update Driver License
Update Car Insurance
Update Employment Information
Update Schools & Register for new schools & transfer school records
Sign up for Mail forwarding to new address
Sign up for Welcome Wagon (Optional of course. But is always nice to have a visit with a new neighbor and get some coupons and samples)
They even break it into timelines sucnh as what to do a couple of months before you move and a few days before you move.
A good way to ensure you don't miss any mail is mail forwarding. However, you will eventually want to change all your address because mail forwarding is not free. Below is a list to help you get started in terms of thinking who you need to update your mail with. Then as you start receiving forwarded mail at your new home you can update the address with the sender.
Memberships (Costco, Co-op, Library etc.)
