Moving House?

Here's a comprehensive list of entities to inform.

When you're moving into your new home it's necessary that everything comes with you, even your mail! Everything from last bills and final payments to insurance premium updates and new credit cards need to be redirected to your new abode, not to whoever may be living in your old home. You don't want to miss out on any crucial communication.

So how do you remember who to notify? You could pay attention to the companies that regularly send you mail but you may be overlooking less frequent communications from equally important companies that have your details. Use the Direct Connect change of address checklist to simplify the process for you.
