We've said it here before and we'll say it again: moving is never an easy process. You have packing supplies to purchase. You have boxes to organize. You have forms to fill out, things to pack, questions to answer, cleaning to finish, and more. How can any single person keep it all straight and get everything done? Why, through the power of ~technology~, of course!
There are many different ways ~technology~ can help simplify your next move. Today we're going to talk about apps. Apps, or applications, are programs you can download on your phone to help accomplish a wide variety of tasks. You probably already knew that. Below, we've listed the best apps to download before or during a next move and how they can help. You, too, can experience better moving through the power of ~technology~!
Moved is a really cool app. It's an all-in-one solution to organizing the process of a move. When you first sign up, you’ll input information about your upcoming move. It’ll ask where you’re coming from and going, what you need, and whether you’re going to sell or donate anything.
After you give it this info, Moved will connect you with a real personal assistant. Your assistant will help walk you through your move step by step. They’ll help find the right mover, get quotes, give you access to packing supply ordering, and more. They’ll even help you find an interim storage unit if and when it’s needed. Moved is a great option for anyone who needs a little help streamlining their moving process. Like it says on their website: “Yes, it’s a real person. Yes, it’s free.”
Letgo is a Craigslist-esque style application you can use to offload excess items before a move. You can also use it to find anything you need after a move. You can use Letgo to find or sell furniture, electronics, moving supplies, and more.
Unlike many online selling services, Letgo is locally to wherever you are. Anyone you make a deal with on Letgo will be nearby and easy to connect with conveniently.
Bellhops says on their website that they are a "modern alternative to traditional moving." This app operates on a simple premise: it connects local college students with people who need moving help.
They offer instant quotes, $1 reservations, and last-minute access for people planning quick moves. Plus, this app is available on both iOS and Android, so it's especially accessible.
If you ask anyone what the most difficult part of moving is, the likely response will be "packing." Avoid the classic "where did I put that?" plague by using the Sortly app. Sortly is all about helping you sort your things during a move.
Sortly accomplishes its goal by allowing you to create lists with photos of your things. You’ll be able to keep track of what you put in which box as you go. Sortly helps you better pack, unpack, and streamline the entire process of organizing your things. It’s very simple, and that’s the point.
Lugg is an app that offers on-demand furniture moving and delivery. It's kind of like a combination of Bellhops and Letgo. Lugg gives you access to movers and connects you with people to buy anything you want hauled away. If you need to move something large quickly and you don’t have a lot of time to do it, Lugg can help.
Last but not least, don’t forget about Storage Direct! If you ever realize you need extra space during or after your move, we’re always ready to help. You can find the space you need quickly and easily online (~technology~!), or get in touch anytime. We’re always ready and waiting to help.
