How do I carry my credit history with me when I relocate?
Your credit history is one of the most valuable pieces of data you have. With that in mind, be sure you dont leave behind this valuable possession when you move. You can make the most of your good credit by:
- Taking a copy with you.
Be sure to take a hard copy of your credit report with you when you move.
- Including your previous address.
Give your previous address on all credit applications if the credit bureau serves both the new and old locations.
- Canceling old accounts.
Cancel local store credit cards and other charge accounts you will no longer need in the new location and ask for letters confirming the accounts have been closed.
