There is a lot of paperwork you’ll need to deal with both before and after the move. Pre-move paperwork will not be as big of an issue as post-move paperwork will be. After the move, you will be exhausted and you will just want the whole process to be finished so that you can start enjoying your new home. But the post-move paperwork is there to still be dealt with. Unfortunately, a lot of people forget about this as they are focused on unpacking and settling into a new home. Make sure that this doesn’t happen to you by reading here just what is some post-move paperwork you’ll need to deal with.


Moving with a moving company means also having to pay for moving insurance. Some people don’t do so but it is always best to have insurance. You never know what could happen.

This is why while you are unpacking you have to make sure to check whether everything is the way it was prior to moving. If yes, you can just close the insurance. And if not, you will have to deal with the process of having the insurance pay off the damage that was done. This is a lot of paperwork.

Driver’s license

If moving within a state, this won’t be a thing you have to deal with. But moving to another state or country surely means having to transfer your driving license. This is the law and if you do not do this, you could end up in a lot of trouble. If you have a car and you are taking it with you, you’ll also need to update your registration. Until you do all of this, you will not be able to drive your car legally. This is why this is the first thing you should start dealing with as soon as you unpack.

Medical documentation

After moving to another city even within a state you have to move all your medical documentation from where you used to live before. It is best to actually have all your medical papers with you before the relocation process. You surely have to visit your doctor before moving in order to inform them you will be relocating and to collect your documents.

After you move, you have to deal with choosing your new doctor. If you have children, you have to do t for them as well.
