Millions of Americans move each year. If you are among those millions this year, you probably know that you will be using lots of boxes and other materials during your move. That creates a lot of waste. It is a good thing that many materials like boxes can be reused or recycled.
Before you move, you will have many things to take care of. You have to change your utility services and set up new accounts at your new address. You have to pack, and you have to schedule your movers. One other important thing you must do is change your address with the United States Postal Service.
There are several ways to do this. One way involves going to your local post office and getting a free Movers Guide. The movers’ guide is a great guide with many tips for making moving day a more pleasant experience. It also contains a Change of Address form.
