Welcome to our second post on our very comprehensive checklist of providers to notify of your big move and/or your new address. In our first post of this series, we listed government providers. This post covers private providers. Some providers on the list will only need to know that you’re moving.. and as you go through the list, you will see why.
Now, let’s talk more about notifying your providers of your big move and/or your new address. Below is the private provider checklist. You just need to skim through and tick them off as you have contacted them.. or cross them off if they don’t apply to you and your fellow dwellers.. whether they be your family, friends or housemates.
The most convenient way to contact each provider is by going to their site online and changing your address on your profile/personal details page or via email – they will advise accordingly of anything else you may have to do.
The Private Provider Checklist
