The United States Postal Service – USPS.com

As it’s the case with many administrative tasks, you can do this fully online: USPS offers you an address change option via their website. There are also Premium Forwarding Services available so that you can continue to receive mail from senders who are not yet aware of your address change.

If you are not comfortable with doing all of this online, you can of course also visit your local post office. There you can get their free “Mover’s Guide” that includes the PS Form 3575 that you need to fill out.

Drivers License and Vehicle Registration (Florida)

The easiest way to change the address on your driver’s license is online via the DMV’s “Virtual Office.” This needs to be done within 30 days of moving. Of course, you can also visit your local DMV office.

You can also find further information on the website of the FLHSMV (Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.)

This needs to be done in writing, either by letter or form (Form 8822 and/or Form 8822-B (for businesses.) Depending on the timing, it can also be taken care of in the course of filing your tax return. You can find instructions on their website.

Adan and Fil were efficient and handled items with care. I would use them again.
These guys were great. Very polite and professional. Hard workers and the move went well with no damages!And Gary is very patient with me as I had difficulties trying to get him paid through Zelle and had to get a business check but he was very patient and we got it all figured out. I would recommend this company for local moves.
Highly recommend this company. From estimate to final move, we received the best service from the office staff who explained and answered all our questions and the 2 young men who moved us taking all precautions with our items. Thank you for your transparency and professionalism.
