Your mailing address is very important to update when moving to your new home as you need to receive your checks and bills on time. Make sure you register the address change with the post office. You can set your mail redirecting any date you wish. If you don’t have an established residence yet you might need a temporary forwarding address.
Reserve a storage facility about two weeks in advance if you need to keep any of your items in storage. Choose one that fits your needs and budget with security cameras, climate and pest control and, of course, close to your place.
Moving can become an unforgettable experience, but getting your child involved and having clear communication with them can help smooth over any uneasy feelings and frustration. Show your children images of the new residence on the internet. Take your child to the local mall, library, and cinema (if it is possible) to show them the opportunity of the place. The sooner you register your kids in their new school the faster their adaptation will take place. One more useful advice is to take your child, whether they are young or a teen, to their new school and community center to meet their future teacher.
Check their vaccination schedule.
Before moving contact your utility company and confirm that they will be able to set these up before or shortly after you arrive. Remember to shut off the utilities after you move out, too.
In case you make a final decision to move your car, you better think about the shipping beforehand.
Update your vehicle registration and driver’s license. It’s obvious that it is illegal to live in one state and have your car registered in another state.
Make sure you know what you need to do and how quickly after your move you need to license your pet because requirements are different from state to state. It can also help if your pet gets lost during the move.
In case your pet has had medical issues in the past, it is only right to contact the vet before the move. This will ensure you at least have the necessary medication your pet will need before you can get in contact with a vet closest to your new home. You should pick up the previous medical history of your dog to ensure a smooth transition to the hands of the new vet. Also, you should explain the new vet any medical situation or behavior that your pet might have which will influence how successfully they can treat it.
