It is important to alert loved ones of your move.

The time building up to your move can be very busy, especially with all of the packing and other important tasks being taken care of at that time. One item that you will want to pay close attention to is the fact that you will need to let all of your friends, relatives and acquaintances of your moving plans. Due to you likely having an extended group of people that you will need to know of your move, starting this process in advance is recommended.

Moving far away can be a difficult thing for some, and if you are looking to keep in touch with others, you should let them know as far in advance as you know. Depending on how close your are with these people, contacting them is important.

Also, your closest friends and family members may take the move hard, so meeting up with them and discussing your plans may help improve their feelings of you leaving. This could be a great way to make both parties feel better about it, and you may be able to convince your friends to visit you once you are settled.

For former co-workers or friends you haven't spoken to in a while, but would like to keep in touch with, it may be nice to send them a free change of address e-card. This will help them feel included on the situation, and will let them know that you are thinking about them.

Having a going away party can be a great way to say goodbye to everyone before your moving company takes your items and brings them to your new residence. This will help you make sure that you didn't forget anyone, and you can let anyone else that you haven't already informed know how and where to contact you.
