Hello!
I'm moving to the springs after 25 years in florida. I cannot go ahead of time so I'm doing everything online or by phone. I'm leaving for colorado the same day I close on my current home. I have a place to live, but when it comes to connect utilities, register the car or have it inspected, transferring my bank accounts, and everything in between I'm completely lost. I have researched the net for info but there is too much, I don't know where to start. A few tips would be appreciate it

All of these should be on the web. Not sure I understand what the problem is. For electricity (and other utilities??) I think it is Colorado Springs Utilities.

For auto registration:

No more smog inspections in El Paso County.

If you are buying you need homeowners insurance.

Should be no big deal to transfer auto insurance and move AAA accounts.

Try Ent Credit Union and Air Academy Credit Union.

Personal horror story: When I moved here last year I had to call about 25 places (insurance, memberships, ex-employers, etc.) to give them my new address. Spent about three hours on the phone (Press 1 for the next customer service representative...). Very painful. Long holds. After I did this, guess what? I realized I HAD GIVEN THEM THE WRONG NEW ADDRESS! I had to do it ALL over again!

I found this "arrival guide" full of useful information for our relocation.

Hope it helps!
