Bankrate's Guide to Moving
If there's a move in your future, and for most of us there is, here's how to do it right. Learn how to check out the new neighborhood before you sign on the dotted line, how to pick a trustworthy and competent mover and how to deal with those special situations that complicate the process.

Tell them you moved!
Notify all your credit card companies when you move. A replacement card coming to your old address could cost you. 

Getting your car ready for the road
Ready to hop in your car and get away from it all? Make sure your car is up to the journey. A pre-trip auto check up could make all the difference.

How to close an account without destroying your finances
Before you close that checking account, there are a few steps you need to take so you don't bounce any checks.
