You’ve finally moved into your new home, thanks to the help of your local moving company. You’re starting to get everything organized and unpacked, and you’re getting used to living in your new space. While these adjustments are enough on their own, there are other things you must remember to do to help this new phase of your life go as smoothly as possible. Here are some tips to help you get settled in your new neighborhood after you’ve moved in.
- Update your mailing address. While you may be happy that you’re not receiving junk mail at your new address (at least when you first move in!), your family, friends, and any companies you do business with need to know your new address. Just fill out a change of address form at your local post office or online and your mail will be forwarded to your new home.
- Register your children for school. If you have children who are old enough to attend school, make sure they’re registered in their new district. Even if you just moved across town, you’ll still want to confirm which school they’ll be attending. School attendance lines change frequently, so check with the district. Be sure to have proof of your new address when you go to register.
- Look for new doctors. If you’ve moved to a new city, you’ll need to find new healthcare professionals for your family. Talk with your new neighbors, coworkers, or use a doctor’s referral service to find out which practices are best for you. It’s always better to do this research before you need it so you’ll know where to go if you’re sick.
- Register your vehicle. If you moved to a new state, you’ll need to register your vehicle and get a new driver’s license. Even if you moved in-state, you’ll still want to update the DMV’s records. Use DMV.org to find a location anywhere in the country.
