You may feel alienated and uncomfortable in a new city. You don’t belong there, and you might be experiencing a sense of disorientation and unease. Although time will generally help you recover from the shock of a move, post-move periods can be particularly difficult at first, especially if you have no idea what to do after one.

Unpack that mountain of boxes

The nicest feature about unpacking is that you can take longer to unpack and finish than you could pack up your house for a move.

Change your postal address

Whether you moved or not, your new home’s mailing address will be different. And that implies, unless you take the trouble to update your address straight after the move, you’ll continue to receive mail at your old house, which is a waste of time.

Find suitable health care providers

The good news is that your doctor’s office may still offer you the same high-quality, customized care as before. The bad news is that he or she will no longer be able to visit you and examine you for a cold, become more severely ill, or obtain a paper from your doctor.

Register your motor vehicle

If you had to drive across one or more state lines to get where you’re going, don’t forget to register your car in the new state. You should be aware that if you move, you’ll need to updated your driver’s license too.

Get to know your new city

Of course, you should learn a little more about your new city! Aside from the basic need to know where to find the most important places in town (supermarkets, banks, medical offices, post offices, car services, schools), getting acquainted with your new home and environment will make you feel more at ease.
