These are just some of the many places you need to change your addresses during the move. Others are miscellaneous organisations like gyms and libraries that can wait until you settle down. If you follow this checklist, you’ll change your registered address at all important organisations and people. This ensures you get all your mail, government documentation, school and collage communication, and other such mail at the right location. You should also change your address with any magazine or service subscription in order to ensure you get the items at your new location.
