We break down everything you need to think about when it comes to moving from changing your mailing address to updating your insurance policies.

Here are some common things you may need to search for when preparing for your move.

Moving Services

One of the first things on your list when you move is going to be figuring out the logistics of the process – from packing up and organizing to transportation and storage.

You’ll need to decide whether you’ll DIY the move or hire professionals. Either way, you’ll want to get started with things like:

  • Local movers.
  • Moving companies.
  • Packing and organizing services.
  • Moving boxes.
  • Moving truck rentals.
  • Moving insurance.
  • Moving PODS and moving storage options.

USPS Address Change

One of the first steps to take after you know your new address and your move-out/move-in dates is to change your address with the United States Postal Service and set up mail forwarding.

This will ensure that all of your mail will get to you, and it can help make it easier to remember which companies, organizations, memberships, and subscriptions you’ll need to change your address with too.


All of your insurance policies will need to be updated during a move. Everything from car and motorcycle insurance to home/renters and health insurance.

Your rates can change based on your new address – that means they might go up or down depending on where you’re moving to and from.

Be sure to search for:

  • Car insurance quotes.
  • Motorcycle insurance quotes.
  • Health insurance.
  • Home insurance.
  • Renters insurance.

You’ll want to compare quotes from a few different providers to make sure you’re getting the right coverage at the best price.

If you’re still in the early stages of your move, you may be able to get started with just your new ZIP code and some other basic information.

Driver’s License & Vehicle Registration

Each state has slightly different rules and requirements regarding your driver’s license and vehicle registration.

Whenever you move to a new address, you need to update this information with your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or equivalent agency.

If you move to a new state, you’ll need to transfer your out of state driver’s license and vehicle registration.

Often times, this will simply involve a trip to your local DMV office, filling out some forms, and paying a fee.

Other times you may need to be prepared to:

  • Take the driver’s license written test or driving test.
  • Having your vehicle inspected, a VIN inspection, or emission inspection.
  • Meeting the minimum liability insurance requirements for your new state.

Voter Registration

If you’re 18 years old or older, you’ll also need to update your voter registration and register to vote in your new city, county, and state.

Sometimes you’ll be able to do this when you change your address with the USPS or apply for your driver’s license at your new DMV.

Otherwise, simple search for the registrar of voters in your new county and follow the steps to complete your application.


Education can be a popular reason for a cross-state move.

Whether you have children in school or are looking for a higher education program for yourself, finding the best schools and programs in your new state is important.

If you’ve got kids, you’ll want to research school districts and get them registered for classed.

If you’re looking for higher education for yourself, you may consider looking for:

  • MBA and Business School Programs.
  • Technical schools.
  • Career schools.
  • Dental hygienist programs.
  • Medical school.
  • Law school.
  • Dental school.


A new job and different career opportunities are another common reason for a move.

Moving to a new city or state can mean a whole new set of potential employers and lines of work.

Once you narrow down a few places you may want to move to, it can be smart to search for things like:

  • Job openings in your new city.
  • Top employers in the state.
  • Highest paying careers.

Financial Services and Banking

At the very least, you’ll need to update your new address with your banks, credit cards, and loans.

However, it may also be wise to look for financial services that are convenient or even beneficial to your new address. You may want to check out:

  • Bank locations near your new house.
  • Credit cards with perks and benefits that align with your local area.
  • Credit unions.


You’ll also want to make sure you’ve got all the utilities set up and ready for when you arrive to your new place.

This includes:

  • Cable and Internet providers.
  • Water and sewage.
  • Trash collections.
  • Gas and electricity.

You’ll want to get your accounts set up and have service started for when you move it.

Healthcare & Fitness

Along with updating your health insurance coverage, you’ll also want to look into healthcare providers near your new address, including:

  • Doctors and specialists.
  • Family care providers.
  • Dentists.
  • Optometrists.

If you like to exercise, it’s also worth looking into:

  • Gyms in your area.
  • Spin classes.
  • Pilates.
  • Yoga classes.
  • Personal trainers.
  • Workout groups near you.

Pet Care

If you’ll be moving with furry family members, you’ll want to make sure they have everything they need at their new home too.

This may include:

  • Finding a vet.
  • Pet insurance.
  • Pet stores.
  • Updating any auto-ships for food and medicine.
  • Finding local dog parks and doggy daycare in the area.

Local Businesses

Moving to a new home means a whole new place to explore, get to know, and become a local.

A big part of that has to do with the local businesses that make up the communities we live in.

Be sure to spend some time researching your favorite and most-frequented businesses and services near your new home.

Plus, after a long day of moving and unpacking, it’s always good to know when the closest pizza place is.
