house moving apps

If you’€™re planning on moving house, whether it’€™s somewhere local or abroad, the moving process can be rather stressful and you might be feeling overwhelmed with where to even begin. According to a study carried out by Kalms moving house is the most stressful life event for Brits, with 37 per cent saying nothing has caused them more anxiety. So before you rush into booking your moving company (or international movers if you’€™re jetting off somewhere), get yourself organised by downloading the best mobile apps that are guaranteed to make your move less stressful, more easy and more entertaining.

MoveMe.com App

Free to download, the MoveMe.com app has a moving checklist to help you manage your home move. It can get you instant quotes from different removal companies, mortgages and home insurance just to name a few. In addition, the app allows you to compare TV, Broadband and utilities costs for you so that you can get the best deal possible in your new home. And if you’€™re looking to buy some new things for your home, the MoveMe.com checklist can find the best deals for that too, whether it is electrical goods, furniture or DIY materials.

What’s more, the app doesn’t stop being helpful once you have moved. It has all the contact information that you need to get in touch with all of your current service providers and update them with your new address. It can also help you find the best locations including dentists, schools and vets in your new local area.

House Move App

Available from Apple ITunes for just £0.69, the House Move app is essentially just like a moving checklist, where it allows you to create customised lists for the different stages in the moving process -€“ whether it is 4 weeks before you move, 1 week before or once you have already moved. This is a great way to make sure that you keep on top of all the jobs that you need to do. And even if you do get behind and don’€™t manage to complete all of the tasks you had planned to, there is a feature that allows you to move the tasks to the next list. It’€™s simple and easy to use and navigate, so is a great app if you’€™re not the most tech savvy.

    These apps will be so helpful the next time I need to move (I’m a college student so it happens more than I like to admit). Thanks for the post. I’ll put the apps to good use.

    One thing we always recommend to our customers is having a “vital itams bag or box”. In the confusion and disaaray of packing it’s easy to misplace things or pack thnigs you will need. We suggest hanging a bag on a doorknob for your “must have” items. Things like cell phone charger cords, garage door openers, medicines, etc. you can’t afford to have packed away. Move the bag with you in your car and have these vital items with you at all times – no scrambling through boxes to find them in a urgent time of need!

    We are very fortunate to be living in today’s era where technology is ever-evolving and easily available to almost anyone and everyone regardless of demographics and background. We can conveniently download any app that we can utilize to support our daily lives in terms of making our daily activities more efficient. An example is to organize our lists which could often get messy and disorderly. When moving out, such apps can help us create a checklist to ensure every process is well taken care of from packing into moving boxes to unloading at the new place.
