These days, we rely on our cell phones or tablets more and more. To work, to connect with others, to shop, to play…and to move?
Moving apps might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to your digital devices, but your smart phone or tablet can be a great resource throughout your moving process and when you’re getting settled into a new home.
There is perhaps nothing more stressful during a move than moving day itself. But you can rely on these moving apps for your iPhone, iPad, or Android to help you organize your move.
MoveTools: Put out by the insurance company State Farm, this app allows you to create lists that go beyond the planning stages. Generate moving task to-do lists, create packing labels to organize your content, and keep a full itinerary of your belongings. This is a great way to reduce anxiety when it comes to potentially losing items in the transition.
My Move: This app will take you through all steps of planning a move, including finding movers in your area, estimating your moving costs, and researching moving companies to make sure they’re reputable.
MoveMatch: Curious how much your move might cost? Although the best way to get a firm estimate is by calling a moving company and having them appraise your home’s contents, this app allows you to estimate costs depending on the size and quantity of items in your home.
Moving Day: This iPhone app provides a detailed way to organize your boxes and make sure you don’t forget anything in your moving inventory. It’s also visually fun and appealing, allowing you to create barcodes and take photos of your belongings.
Moving Van: Moving Van is an ideal way to get the most out of your moving company’s services. This app can be used to list the specific items in every box that is packed (either by you or by your movers). This will allow you to easily find items you need right away and also determine if anything can go straight to storage rather than your new home.
