What’s not to love about this technological age? There’s an app for virtually everything. And moving is no exception.
There are dozens of apps that promise to make your moving process easier. So how do you begin wading through them? Luckily, we’ve done the legwork for you. Here, we’ve rounded up our favorite moving apps with an explanation of what makes them so great.
Our Favorite Moving Apps
This app performs several functions. First, use it to create a personalized timeline by entering your move date and moving plans. Next, use the home inventory function to arrange your real-life items by room and calculate shipping weight, volume, and number of boxes needed. Finally, you can search nearby moving companies and get quotes.
After you download MagicPlan, you can use it to either take a picture of a room or draw it out. The app then measures the room from your picture to help you decide if your furniture will fit. Additionally, you can design your space, view it in 3D, and get job estimates.
Tile sells tiny, innovative bluetooth tags that you can attach to particularly irreplaceable items, such as your wallet, keys, computer, or valuable jewelry. Once they’re attached, you can easily track them within a 100-foot Bluetooth range.
If you lose your phone, you can press the button on one of your Tile devices and it will ring — even on silent. In addition, lost items beyond the radius will send you a notification if another member of the Tile community happens to pass by.
This app lets you choose and schedule the following services for a reasonable price:
- Home Cleaning
- Interior Painting
With Moving Checklist Pro, you’ll get detailed to-do lists for all of the small details that come up during a move. It comes preloaded with more than 200 tasks to help you move your home. Examples include change of address, area schools to research, and services to schedule.
The concept behind Sortly is a simplified way to keep track of your most precious belongings. Download the app, take a quick picture of an item, and categorize it. At this point, you can store it to a personalized, hierarchical, searchable list. Beyond that, it helps you organize your move with weekly to-do lists.
