Here are some examples of people to notify:

  • Physician
  • Neighbours
  • Office supervisor
  • School principal
  • Friends

You should also change the records listed within your financial services. This includes your bank and insurance company.

3.       Arrange your utilities and services

There is nothing more frustrating than receiving an electricity bill from your old address after you have settled into your new home. This situation can be avoided by making arrangements with all of your utility companies as well as your other services, including your cable, broadband and newspaper or magazine subscriptions. You can have all of the services transferred to your new address if applicable or have them disconnected within the date of your move.
