10 Tips for Changing Your Address When You Move


2
Consider Letting Someone Do It for You

If you just don't have the time or the desire to undergo the change of address notification process when you move, there are services that'll do it for you.

An online address change service will save you time and alleviate some of your relocation stress by notifying all of your organizations, billing companies and memberships of your change of residence. You can select the companies and organizations you want to notify from a database of thousands. The address changes service can also set up, switch and cancel magazine subscriptions and arrange disconnect/connect services for utilities. Some even provide a service to remove your name from junk mail lists.

Before signing up for any online address change service, be sure to investigate them thoroughly. Make sure they have security measures in place, such as a secure server and bonded employees. The Better Business Bureau can also provide information on an organization's service and complaint records.
