A new house or apartment can evoke feelings of hope. It’s a brand-new place for a brand-new beginning. Unfortunately, packing all your belongings properly, keeping track of everything you’re bringing with you, and the whole process of moving to get there can leave you frazzled and worn out. Of course, you can enlist the help of your local movers for almost any type of move. You’ll even find specialized professionals for big-ticket items like piano movers.
Aside from the actual heavy-lifting, you can also find some organization help from a suite of “moving” apps you can download absolutely free. So while our experts at Around Town Movers are getting your stuff from point A to point B, check out these helpful apps that allow you to keep everything moving smoothly and swiftly.
Craigslist is not an app but a website you can access on your smartphone. As you’re going through all your belongings, you might come across things you don’t want your local movers to bring to your new place. The best place to get rid of them (or sell them) is on Craigslist. Be careful, however, as you will be dealing with total strangers. Always exercise caution and never make meet-ups without a friend.
The first real app on this list is Sortly. Sortly is an organizing app that lets you take photographs of all your belongings and sort them into categories to make unpacking easier. It also lets you tag the objects per room or function which you can them compare with the actual items to make arrangements easily. Sortly also has a premium version which allows you to organize more items for bigger households.
Upgrade your default smartphone calendar to Fantastical. Fantastical has features that can make moving so much easier like setting triggers for to-do list based on both dates or location. For example, you can make “set up an appointment with movers” kick in once you’ve checked out your new place or when you’ve finished with another task.
