I am in the process of changing my address with various companies as we get the keys to our new house on Friday. It should be an exciting time but I am getting soo stressed out! Why oh why do companies get away with charging ridiculous administration charges just to type a new address into their systems and print out a new piece of paper? Car insurance companies are the worst - £25 just to change my address (Times two because my partner has to do his too). The cats microchipping companies have charged me another £10. Im barely a quarter of the way down the list of companies! Also does anybody know - If I change my address with companies that I am currently paying direct debits out for (insurances, loan etc) will the direct debits stop when the billing address for my bank does not match the new address? I am unable to get down to the bank to change my address with them just yet, and am concerned that when the billing address I have originally input doesnt match the new address, it will throw a spanner in the works. Or does this not matter?
