The mover's guide to mailing address changes

A checklist for how to change your address when you move

 

 

Start mail forwarding with USPS

The Post Office will forward your mail to your new address for a few months, giving you an extra wiggle room. The service is almost free, there's a $1 charge to verify your identity through a credit or debit card.

 

Notify friends and family (and get their updates)

Send out a note with your new address information to the people you're closest to, and while you're at it, check in with them to see if their addresses have changed!

If you already have a PackBurro account, login to request updates from everyone in your address book. Or, to start an account and request addresses for the first time.
