Moving can be challenging, whether down the street or across the country. Fortunately, with so much technology at our fingertips, there are many tools to help make this process smoother and more manageable.
If you’re looking for ways to relieve moving stress and make your relocation more organized, look no further than these five apps. They can easily be adapted to meet your specific needs. So, grab your smartphone, and let’s get downloading.
Chances are you already have a note-taking app on your phone. However, Google Keep might be better because it offers far more capabilities than just adding text to a note. You can set reminders, add images and graphics, and customize your notes however you like.
This app is excellent for those who feel overwhelmed by all the “to-do” lists that come with moving. Now, you can organize everything in one convenient app and be reminded of when deadlines are approaching. For example, you can get notified when it’s time to set up your new utilities or when you have to sign a contract with a moving company.
Technically, this app is for contractors, but it can work well for your moving needs too. The premise of MagicPlan is that you can organize your interior space without having to set foot in it. You can create a floor plan of your new home or apartment and populate it with furniture and accessories.
This app is helpful so you can plan how to unpack all of your items after you’ve moved. Plus, you can adjust your layout on the fly, so you don’t have to feel limited by your selection.
Overall, moving digital furniture is much easier than moving real objects. Not only can you save your back, but you can experiment with different layouts that would otherwise be too time-consuming to test.
Moving involves many different tasks, and you may only be available to care for some of them. TaskRabbit allows you to outsource these tasks to verified “Taskers.” Whether you need minor home repairs or some errand run, TaskRabbit makes it easy to find assistance.
Plus, Taskers set their own rates, so you can compare and contrast different providers to find one that fits your budget and needs. It’s a win-win!
Facebook Marketplace has quickly become the go-to option for buying and selling pre-owned items. Similar to the classified section of a modern newspaper, you can put everything up for sale that you want to avoid moving and see if your Facebook friends or other locals are interested in purchasing. Additionally, if you want to buy some affordable used furniture to furnish your new home, it can be helpful. And since Facebook Marketplace is built into the Facebook app, you probably have it already.
This app can come in handy when you’re planning a move. Sortly is built for inventorying your belongings. This way, you know what you have and can verify that it made it to your destination intact.
Sortly is ideal for long-distance moves but can also help you stay organized during relocation. Knowing everything in your house can make it easier to understand what to keep and what to get rid of when moving and de-cluttering.
