A Stress-Free Move to Delaware: Your Essential Change of Address Checklist

May 16, 2023

Moving to a new home is always exciting, but it can also be quite stressful. We’ve compiled a comprehensive change of address checklist to help you prepare for your move to the picturesque Friendship Creek community in Bethany Beach, DE. This will ensure you don’t overlook any essential tasks during the moving process. Follow our guide to make your move to Delaware a smooth and stress-free experience!

Notify the Post Office

First and foremost, visit the United States Postal Service website to submit a change of address request. This will ensure that your mail is forwarded to your new address in Friendship Creek. Completing this task at least two weeks before your moving date is best.

Update Your Driver’s License and Vehicle Registration

In Delaware, you must update your driver’s license and vehicle registration within 60 days of moving. Visit the Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website to schedule an appointment and learn about the required documents. The DMV also offers an online option for updating your vehicle registration.

Revise Your Voter Registration

To maintain your voting rights in Delaware, you’ll need to update your voter registration. Visit the Delaware Department of Elections website to submit your change of address. This way, you’ll be ready to participate in the next election.

Inform Utility Providers

Contact your current utility providers (e.g., electric, gas, water, trash and internet) to notify them of your move—schedule disconnection at your current residence and connection at your new home. Remember to inquire about any potential transfer fees or deposits.

Update Your Insurance Policies

Contact your insurance providers (homeowners, renters, auto and health) to update your address and ensure your coverage remains valid. This is also an excellent time to review your policies and make any necessary adjustments.

Inform Financial Institutions

Notify your bank, credit card companies and investment firms of your change of address. Make sure to update your billing address for recurring payments or subscriptions. This will help prevent any missed payments or unnecessary fees.

Register with a New Healthcare Provider

If you’re moving to Delaware from out of state, you may need to find new healthcare providers. Research local doctors, dentists and other specialists in the Bethany Beach area, and register with them before your move. Make sure to request the transfer of your medical records.

Share Your New Address with Friends and Family

Send a quick email or text message to your friends and family with your new address in Friendship Creek. This will ensure they can continue to send you letters, cards and packages.

Change Your Address with Schools

If you have children, notify their current school of your move and request the transfer of records to their new school in the Bethany Beach area. Remember to update your address for any school-related correspondence.
