Best Apps for Moving
By: Megan   |    June 11, 2012   |   1 Comments (0) (0)

There is no denying the fact that moving can be a stressful process. Even if you are moving into your vacation home, a place where you should feel able to relax and unwind, the tasks of planning for the move, packing your things and unloading them when you arrive create plenty of stress. Hiring a reputable moving company can help significantly with this, but what you may not realize is that your smartphone can also be a tool to alleviate this stress. With the right apps and a quality moving company, you can change your move from something to be feared and dreaded to something tolerable, if not enjoyable.

Moving List

Moving List for iPhone has 95 pre-populated lists to help you stay on track as you move. In addition to these pre-created lists, you can also add your own items or edit the items the app gives you. You can organize the lists or tasks by when they are due or what type of category they are. It also has articles and graphics to give you advice for balancing the challenges of a big move.

Moving Planner

An app for Android devices, Moving Planner offers you complete checklists for everything you need to do before a move. It comes loaded with over 210 items that you may need to think about when moving. With this app you can easily check or uncheck options as you go through your to-do lists as moving day approaches.

Moving Van

If you have an iPhone, consider adding Moving Van to help you organize your boxes. All you need to do to know what is in every box is number the boxes, then organize them by number on the app. To save time, you can even take photos of the items in the box instead of listing them in the app. This saves you the common headache that comes when you do not know which box a particular item is in.

MoveTools

Created by an insurance company, MoveTools™ helps you with comprehensive to-do lists that are built on a very specific moving timeline. With this app, all of your to-do lists are organized in one place, and you don’t even have to go to the trouble of creating them. Simply choose a list, organize your time and start packing. You can even create smart labels with the app to label your boxes. Then use your iPhone to read the labels and show you the contents without the need to open the box and peek inside.

Yelp!

The Yelp! app will help you find the necessities in your new location, such as shopping centers and places to eat. Instead of settling for fast food the day of your move, because you don’t know where else to go, use Yelp! to find a dining spot that has rave reviews. Yelp! not only shows you reviews of area businesses, but also the phone number, website and address, along with a map to the establishment.

While your smartphone is not going to pack your boxes for you, it can take some of the stress out of the process by helping you stay organized and on-track. With the help of the right apps, you will find moving day to be far less dreadful. Soon you will be unpacking in your new destination, with the confidence that comes with knowing that you did everything necessary to be fully prepared for your move.
