One of the best things about hiring a local mover in Tucson, Arizona is that they can do all of the packing, loading, transporting unloading and unpacking of your belongings, freeing you up to take care of important business.  There is no need for you to attempt to do everything when there are highly trained movers in Tucson that will streamline you moving experience. You should stick to doing the things that literally only can do, because when you move there is no lack of items that will require your attention.  Below we have compiled a list of all of the pertinent items that you will want to address as quickly as possible so as to prevent a lapse in any services or benefits.

  1. Post Office

The first thing you should do is go online and fill out a form to have your mail forwarded to your new address.  You can pick any date for your mail forwarding service to begin, so it is best to get it finalized and then move on to the other places that you will need to update your address on.

  1. Government Agencies

You will want to contact Social Security and the IRS to let them know that you have changed addresses, meaning that should they need to send you something, there is no excuse for them to send it to your old address.

  1. Credit Card Companies

Credit card companies allow you to change your personal address online, so it should only take you a few moments to update your mailing address, but keep in mind you will also need to update your address if it is connected to a card that is used to make payments.

  1. Your Employer

You will want to let your employer know the date on which you plan on moving and your new address so that you do not miss any of your pay stubs.  Your employer will also need your new address so that they can send you your tax forms at the end of the year.

  1. Utility Companies

As soon as you know your move in date, you will want to call all of your utility companies and cable companies to let them know that you will need to transfer services to your new address.  This will prevent a lapse in your services, which could leave you in your new home without water, electricity, garbage removal, or even the internet (gasp!). If you can have those services transferred over prior to your move in date, it is best that way you have access to everything you need on move in day.

  1. Insurance Agencies

Whether it be home, auto or life insurance, you will need to let your insurance company know that you are moving and have a new address.  You may also want to consult with your homeowners insurance agent about short term moving insurance to see how it compares to a local Tucson moving companies insurance options.

  1. Health

You will want to let your healthcare provider know that you have changed your address so that none of you personal information ends up in the hands of strangers.  You will want to update your address with your dentist, acupuncturist, Medicaid, Medicare, as well as the veterinarian for your pets.

  1. Friends and Family

In the old days, people would send out postcards letting their friends and family know that they have a new address.  However, seeing as it is 2019, the most effective way to update your friends and family to your new address would be to email it to them or give them a call if you are going to be talking to them anyways.

  1. Subscription Services

If you have a subscription to things such as Netflix, Hulu, HelloFresh, magazines, or even online retail shops that you get deliveries from, you will want to update your address information immediately.  The last thing you want to do is accidentally use Amazon Prime and have your package arrive to your old home.

  1. Vehicle Information

You will want to contact the DMV to update your address on your registration, photo ID card and/or your driver’s license, as well as your voter registration.  They may require you to show proof of new residency, so you should look up the requirements or forms that you will need to fill out to change your address.

  1. Financial Institutions

You will want to call your bank to update your address and order new personal checks to reflect your address change.  You will also want to make sure that if you have any loans out, that you update your address with whatever agencies they are through.
