Moving to a new home doesn’t have to be stressful. In fact, it shouldn’t be. There are a number of moving resources available to help simplify your move into a new home, apartment, or building complex. Learn more about how to stay connected, no matter where your move may take you.
Change your address to avoid missing mail
As you start planning your move, one of the first things you’ll want to update is your mailing address—well before you’re cozy in your new home. The United States Postal Service (USPS) makes it easy to change your address online, so you can save a trip to the local post office. In just a few clicks, you can update your address before you move, so you won’t risk missing any mail, packages, monthly subscriptions, or important bills. Remember to update your address for your utilities and any other important accounts associated with a specific billing or mailing address.
Once you’ve changed your address with USPS, you’ll receive an email confirmation so you can rest easy knowing your mail will find its way to your new home. And if you prefer to update your permanent address or mailing address in person, you can also stop by the local post office near you to fill out and submit a change of address form.
Check out these helpful tips in the USPS Mover’s Guide to make your move experience go a little smoother this time around.
Remember to move your TV, Internet, home phone, and home security services
Are you moving to a new neighborhood? Moving to a new city? Moving to a new state? Don’t worry, you can find your local Internet service provider, TV service provider, home phone service provider, and home security service provider in just a few steps. Visit smartmove.us to see what provider is available in your area. There may even be more than one service provider available in your new neighborhood. You’ll also be able to browse the latest deals and bundles (which combine two or more services) to find the right offer for you.
In some cases, you’ll even be able to transfer your TV, Internet, home phone, and home security (or home automation) services with you into your new home. If you’re an Xfinity customer, make sure to visit xfinity.com/learn/moving to see if your same great Xfinity plan is available in your new neighborhood. Plus, eligible customers can move their Xfinity services into a new home right away—in some cases, even on the same day. You may also want to upgrade or change your plan to add (or remove) premium channels, increase Internet speeds, sign up for international calling, add 24/7 live video monitoring, and so much more.
Stress less with moving tips and tricks
Moving soon? Don’t worry. Your move will get done one way or another, and before you know it, you’ll be settled down in your new home unpacking the last of the cardboard boxes. Check out these helpful moving tips and tricks from SmartMove to make your move into a new home easier… and even fun!

Two great pieces of moving advice: ask local businesses for unused boxes and label the sides of your moving boxes (instead of the top) so your labels are visible even when the boxes are stacked.
