Moving Checklist

3 Weeks Pre-Move

Call your local/state government to clear-up any unpaid taxes or parking tickets. Unpaid fees will undoubtedly find their way to your new house (and may even delay license renewal).

Utility Disconnect
Contact your current utility companies (electric, cable, gas, phone, water) and disconnect service. Have services turned off the day AFTER you move.

Health Care
Call your pharmacist and get a recommendation for a pharmacy in your new town. Transfer your prescriptions to this new pharmacy. If you are at all worried about having access to medication after your move, ask your doctor for a couple of months worth.

Social Security
Currently receiving Social Security Benefits? Change your address with the Social Security Administration 1-800-772-1213. Be sure to have your Social Security Number handy when you call.

Internet Service
Make sure you have Internet Service in your new home. Also, learn if you have DSL or a second phone line. If not, moving might be a good time to upgrade your connection to the Internet. Click Here

Utility Connection
Contact utility companies and sign up for new service. Service should begin the day BEFORE you move. These days you can even connect service on the Internet.
