1. Your Moving Date

Most people move during the weekend because it is the most convenient time. If you can be flexible moving in the middle of the week, even the middle of the month could save you a nice chunk of change.

2. Changing Your Address

Moving can be super chaotic and it can be easy to forget to change your address. Unless you want your magazines delivered to the wrong house or you credit cards declined, we recommend making this one of your top priorities. www.usps.com

3. Changing Your Driver's License Address

It is very important that you change this address. The Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) asks that you change your address within 10 days of moving.

4. Transfer Your Utilities

This is a MUST! Be sure to call you service providers and let them know about the move. When you call, schedule your disconnect and connect dates for electricity and gas. Also contact your cable and internet provider.
