Yes, there’s an app for that too! One of the best things about the 21st century is that handy device in your pocket that is capable of making everything a little bit easier: your iPhone. There’s a ton of iPhone apps for moving and packing in the app store, but many are not worth your time or money. Below are five free (we like that word!) apps that will enhance your moving experience.
Yardsale Often one of the first steps of moving is the de-clutter process. Setting up an old-fashioned yardsale can be a lot of work. With the Yardsale app, you can put your unwanted items on sale in seconds! Snap a few pictures, write a quick description, set a price (all within the app), and you’re done! Your listing will pop up in the app for everyone nearby, and soon you’ll be receiving tons of offers for your stuff in your e-mail inbox.
My Things The first step when you call a moving company is to put together an inventory of the things you will be moving. Moving companies use this inventory to estimate the pricing of your move. Usually a salesman will visit your home to perform an on-site survey, but if that’s not possible, this is also a great tool. This app helps you compile a room by room, location by location inventory of the things you’ll be moving, and then lets you easily share or export the inventory with anyone!
Moving Day For the super-organized packer, this app is a dream. This app helps you quickly inventory every box you pack and creates thorough box labels. The labels even have QR codes on them, so upon delivery, you can quick scan the QR codes to make sure you have everything, and inventory any damages. Fancy!
Moving Day Lite The perfect mini-break from packing in your pocket! In this fun game, you help the skate-board riding mover collect items and race them to the moving truck. Take care to avoid obstacles like trash bins and traffic cones! Items collected and time records will help you earn points! No worries, we promise our crew won’t use skateboards to transport your stuff!
