Moving house can seem a bit like juggling plates with all the various stages and a host of preparations to make. The process of moving is strewn with pitfalls and stressful moments and once you are into your new home you are then faced with decor and furnishing challenges. If you are one of the people who are planning on a move then here are some of the top apps for your phone or iPad to help make the process of moving easier.
This free app from Applosophy is a great way for you to create a moving budget and also an inventory list of your home contents. Creating a moving budget will ensure that you have enough money to make the move without running short and an inventory is always helpful so you can ensure that all your possessions make it to your new place.
The app assists you with estimating the cost of moving and also helps to assess how much stuff you have in your home in order to work out what you will need to move it all. The app is pretty easy to navigate. You simply click on the Start Moving button and the app asked you to begin listing your possessions room by room.
This useful moving app from State Farm features a very comprehensive ‘to do’ list which is measured against a timeline. Another useful feature of the MoveTools App is that it has an online label creation tool that creates smart phone scannable labels for your home contents.
Again, this app is easy to use and involves simply selecting ‘Pack Up’ from the menu and you will get an icon of a moving box into which you can drag the items in your house room by room. Once the box is full, click on ‘Tape up this box’ at the bottom of the screen and the box is moved to your inventory.
