Change of Address and Other Things on Your Moving To-Do List

Red’s Moving, Inc. Offers a Guide on What You Should Do as You Move

Moving to a new place can be an exciting adventure, but it also comes with a laundry list of tasks. One of the most critical items on your moving to-do list is changing your address, especially if you’re relocating to Lewiston, ME, Auburn, ME, Augusta, ME, or Portland, ME. Here’s a comprehensive guide from Red’s Moving, Inc. to help you smoothly transition to your new address:


Update Your Address with USPS 

Visit your local post office or update your address online through the United States Postal Service (USPS) website. This ensures that your mail will be forwarded to your new address.


Notify Important Contacts

Inform your bank, credit card companies, and other financial institutions of your address change. Additionally, update your address with your employer, insurance providers, and any subscription services you may have.


Utilities and Services Require Change of Address

Contact your current and future utility providers to schedule disconnections and connections for services such as electricity, gas, water, cable, and internet. Make sure to update your address for billing purposes.


DMV and Voter Registration

Update your driver’s license and vehicle registration address if you’re moving within the state. Remember to update your voter registration as well.


Schools and Medical Records

Notify your child’s school of the address change and arrange to transfer records if needed. Also, inform your healthcare providers and update your medical records with your new address.


Local Government Offices

If you’re moving to a new town or city, visit the local government office to update your address on your vehicle registration and for any local services or permits.


Library and Gym Memberships

Update your address with your local library and any gym or club memberships you may have.


Friends and Family

Share your new address with friends and family so they can stay in touch and send holiday cards and gifts to the correct location.


Change of Address Cards

Send out change of address cards to acquaintances, businesses, and organizations you may have yet to think to notify personally.


Explore Your New Community

As you settle into your new home in Lewiston, Auburn, Augusta, or Portland, ME, take the time to explore your new neighborhood and get to know the local amenities and services available.


Local and long-distance moving can be stressful, but by following this to-do list, you’ll ensure a smoother transition to your new address in Maine. Enjoy the journey as you make your new place feel like home!
