Moving can be quite the difficult task. Wouldn’t it be to you, if you were asked to uproot your life and shift it somewhere else? Relocation is a task filled with obstacles that we create ourselves. And we do this by handling things haphazardly. If we were a bit more organized in the way we handled our move, we probably wouldn’t have such a hard time with it. We’ve made a list of iOS apps that can bring some order to the chaotic way each of us handles our moves. Hopefully, we’ll do a better job with them.
‘My Move’ is the ideal app to help you organize your move. You can get in touch with local and international movers with the help of this app. Read reviews and testimonials from customers to help you narrow down the right moving company for the job. You can also access any complains that were made against the company. Besides this it also provides a checklist of things that you need to do before your move. If you’re looking for tips or notes on how to plan a smooth move, that too can be found here.
State Farm Move Tools
You’ll find moving tips virtually anywhere, but you won’t find the tools to execute them. ‘State Farm Move Tools’ have compiled everything you’ll ever need for your relocation needs. The interface is so clean and crisp, that you’ll have no trouble navigating through it. There’s a virtual packer mode that allows you to practice your packing before you actually do it in real life. This will help you avoid mistakes while packing and prevent the need to reopen the boxes. This app can also help you label your boxes in an efficient manner, so you don’t lose any of your belongings.
It’ll be good to get some expert advice when you’re in need of it. Fortunately, the ‘moveAtlas’ app provides that service. You can benefit from the expert advice provided by Atlas and make your move a less complicated experience. The app also provides checklists that’ll help you cover all the important things during the last minute. If you’re looking for a no-obligation quote, then you can get it through this app. You can also check the status of your shipment by using the Atlas tracking system.
Movers often overcharge you for your shipments. In order to stay one step ahead of the game you should use ‘Move Estimator’. It’ll help you estimate the exact weight and volume of your shipment. That way you’ll know if you’re being overcharged. Knowing the weight and volume will help you find the right storage unit for your storage needs. Based on the quote provided by the moving company and the weight of your shipment, you’ll know which mover is trustworthy. This app also provides quotes from movingscam.com, a website dedicated to protecting you from movers.
Moving may be a complicated task, but these apps simplify it. Make use of them to make your next move a breeze. After all, what’s the point of having technology if it won’t simplify your life?
