You’ve found a dream home in your dream neighborhood. Congrats! Now the real work begins:Start ticking these things off your list.
1. Check Your Insurance Policies
Moving to a new state? Chances are you’ll have to get new insurance policies. You might even needto find a new company since not all insurers blanket the entire country.
2. Sign Up for the Town Newspaper
It’ll help you get to know the area quickly. Also, consider subscribing to the regional magazine—allof those dining guides are invaluable.
3. Get Copies of Your Medical Records
Even if you’re young and perfectly healthy, you’re still going to need your records at some point.Avoid the hassle by getting them before you move out of the area—you’re going to need tochange doctors when you move, so you’ll want your new doc to have all of the information thatthey’ll need.
4. Hook Yourself Up
Call your current water, electric, cable, Internet, and phone companies and soon-to-be companies amonth before your move date. This way, you have enough time to schedule appointments requiredfor shut off and turn on. This will prevent you from getting charged after you leave your old home orfor any service that’s not on in your new one. Ask for written confirmations in case you have toappeal a charge.
5. Cancel Catalogues
Get your name off junk mail lists by going to CatalogChoice.org. You’ll have enough stuff to sortthrough...why add more to that massive pile?
6. Go Postal
Change your address six weeks before your move at the post office or at Usps.com. This will get yourmail to the right place, and they’ll send you a welcome package with coupons and discounts forlocal stores and services.
