Welcome to ChangingZipCodes.com!

blueshirt-scarfAs a frequent mover (and Boy Oh Boy don’t I wish moving companies offered frequent miles), I am here to help you navigate through one of the most difficult and challenging situations of life: relocation. So, if you are tired of family members joking about your address changes, or you’re planning that first move out of your parents’ home, I am here to help. I will have tips and articles on everything from making new friends, to getting your house “showing ready”. Moving is hard but change is exhilarating. There are great things in your future. Be of good cheer.
