Moving to a new home can be a completely overwhelming experience. There are so many things you have to arrange and take care of that you can end up feeling like your head is spinning. Here are several helpful apps to make moving less of a nightmare!
Once you’ve bought a new place, you’ll need to start packing up your things. Download Sortly to help make your packing process easier. The app (available for both iOS and Android) allows you to take a complete inventory of all your stuff. You just snap a pic of each item with your phone, and then the app will help you organize the items into categories so you’ll have a complete list of what you own. You can even create QR code labels for specific boxes of items, so that once you start unloading, you’ll know exactly what’s in each box. With Sortly, even if you’ve hired a moving service to help out, you’ll still be able to easily keep track of all your belongings.
Apps that provide you a quick and easy way to sell things are essential during a move. Letgo (or similar ones like OfferUp or Craigslist) can help you list items that you want to sell and then connect you to the perfect buyer. It’s a simple process – just take a pic of the item you wish to sell, post it, and then accept a bid from a buyer. This app is helpful if you’re wanting to sell a bunch of items quickly and don’t have the time to do a garage sale.
3. Moving Checklist Pro
Available for iOS, Moving Checklist Pro can help you keep your sanity during the moving process. Because there are tons of things to remember when moving to a new home, this app allows you to keep a checklist of tasks you need to complete (such as buying boxes, changing your address, transferring utility services, etc.). These detailed to-do lists will help you stay organized and give you peace of mind that you’ve completed every task you need to during your move.
4. Magic Plan
This app takes all of the guesswork out of settling into your new digs. If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can use the app to create customized floor plans for your house. It allows you to virtually map out where all of your furniture will go in a quick process. You just take photos of each room, and the app then figures out the distances and measurements to create a perfect floor plan for your home. You’ll be given exact dimensions so you’ll have a better idea where your furniture will best fit – before you’ve lugged everything around! Magic Plan gives you the ability to visualize the best design for your home with just a few clicks of your phone.
