You've just purchased a new home in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle, but what comes next? Moving! It can be a stressful process for anyone, no matter how many times you've changed homes. Don't wait until the last minute to organize your belongings and timeline for your Jefferson or Berkeley County move, start now and avoid problems later.
Add these three to-do's to your moving checklist to help smooth out the journey of relocating from one home to the next.
Change Your Address
There are many people and places you'll need to inform of your new address— schools, friends, family, banks, subscriptions, doctors— so plan ahead. Change your address a few weeks prior to your true moving date to make sure it's had time to be processed.
Declutter Your Home
What better time than moving to declutter your home? As you're packing up your Eastern Panhandle home, consider each item that you are sending to the new house. Start a separate box for items to giveaway, items you no longer wear or use, and those you can give to friends or family members. Be diligent during the decluttering process— you'll want to start fresh in your new home, not wind up finding space for more unnecessary things.
Prioritize the Boxes
When packing up each room of your home in Charles Town, Ranson, Shepherdstown, Martinsburg, Inwood, Falling Waters and Hedgesville, it can be easy to overlook what items you'll need right away. Start a box specifically for those first days in the new house— what you'll need right away, items such as pillows, toothbrushes, dishes, blankets, chargers for electronics and laundry essentials. Now when you begin the unpacking, you'll know exactly which box your phone charger is in!
Avoid packing different items from different rooms in the same box. Instead, use a color-coding system and place the same color sticker on the box and the specific room's door. If any one of your boxes gets lost in transit to your new home in Jefferson or Berkeley County, you will know which one and where it belongs. Also, keep corresponding items together— for instance, your desktop computer with all of its cords or your lamps with their bulbs.
