3 Ways to Use Facebook in a Move

facebook for moving
  1. Connect with your new community Does your new neighborhood have a Facebook group? Perhaps your new city has a page for residents or maybe even an online seniors society. Joining Facebook groups that connect you with your new community members is a way to make new contacts and stay informed of local events.
  2. Find vendors on Facebook If your move takes you to a new city, you may need referrals for local technicians and professionals. Consider Facebook as a tool to research local businesses because it provides you not just with contact info, but reviews written by their clients. Posting to ask for recommendations on community pages can also be a great source of suggestions on who to employ as your next plumber, dentist, or maintenance person.
  3. Try Facebook Marketplace Whether your dining table is the wrong size or you would like a new hutch for your entryway, a change in living space often means a change in furniture. Facebook Marketplace allows you to sell and buy used household items with others in your area—giving you a chance to earn money on what you no longer need and save on what you need to make your new house feel more like home.
