How To Change Address When Moving

Mar 06, 2019

Doing Everything They Can to Make Your Move Easy

To many of us, moving is one of life’s most stressful events. It’s right up there with spending the holidays with your in-laws, getting patted down by airport security when you’re late for your flight, or sitting in a work meeting with 10 geniuses who love nothing more than the sound of their own voice.

But I’m not here to add any stress to your day. In fact, I’m bringing you good news that will help reduce your stress level if you plan on moving anytime soon. As far as the other stressful moments mentioned, sorry, you’re on your own.

Now, back to moving. We all know that it can be nerve-racking. There’s so much to do, so much to plan, and so many things to pack. On top of all that, you’re moving to a new city, with new neighbors, maybe a new job…and you’re moving away from the familiar surroundings that you’ve become accustomed to over the years. Plus, you have to make sure everybody, including friends, family, credit card and utility companies, and others know your new address.

So any tool that helps reduce the number of things you have to do or take care of when moving is a welcome addition. Besides picking a moving company you can trust, and one that has the proven experience and great reviews to back them up, you deserve great customer service and a total, end-to-end moving solution that will help take the worry out of your move.

Oakley Relocation, an agent of North American Van Lines, provides moving services for any kind of relocation, whether localnational or international.  They provide a solution that is all-inclusive, with short and long term storage, full-service packing, un-packing and crating, vehicle transport, and a small shipment program that ships anything, anywhere.

As part of their effort to make the moving process as smooth and organized as possible, and to meet every customer need, they recently partnered with Updater, a company with a mission to “build technology so powerful that people won’t move without it.”

Updater Moving App

Updater is a single platform that greatly reduces the amount of time you have to spend contacting all of the accounts, utilities, and other things, such as your mail, that need to be updated when you move.  Instead of contacting each of those entities individually, which can take hours, Updater reduces those hours into minutes. So on the day you move into your new home, you can rest easy that your Wi-Fi will be set up, utilities connected, and satellite, cable, or streaming will be all ready for you after you unpack the necessities. In addition, you will also receive discounts for preferred vendors, exclusive to Updater.

Utilizing the Updater platform typically saves you:

  • 9 hours
  • $500 in exclusive discounts
  • 21 less calls/emails to vendors
  • Having at least one, if not more, pounding headaches during your move

Oakley’s partnership with Updater is yet another way they streamline the logistics of moving in order to make your move as stress-free as possible. Give them a call today and get all of your questions answered and learn more about the Updater platform.
