Tech it Out! 5 Moving Apps to Help You Stay Organized

Use a moving app to help you get organized before, during, and after your move.

Use a moving app to help you get organized before, during, and after your move.

We could all use a little help when it comes to a move. Besides hiring the best residential or commercial movers for the job, there’s all that cleaning, sorting, packing, selling, and planning. Did you know there’s a moving app for that? While technology won’t help us with the physical labour, it can help us stay organized before, during, and after a move. Check out these 5 apps that will make your move a little easier.

 

1. Tidy Your Home

Recommended by lifestyle guru Martha Stewart, Tody (available for $6.99 on Google Play and Apple App Store) helps you manage your chores and household cleaning routines by prioritizing tasks based on your cleaning style. All you have to do is enter your chores, and Tody does the rest, except clean your house, unfortunately.

 

2. Sort it Out

Known for its inventory tracking software, Sortly also offers a free organizational app that allows you to make a visual inventory of everything you own. Use your mobile phone to take a photo of each one of your belongings. The app then organizes all your items into categories, helping you decide what you wish to hold onto and what to purge before you pack. You can also add detailed notes of your belongings, which you can pass on to your household movers for insurance purposes. The app even allows you to print out QR labels for your boxes.

 

3. Let it Go

Get rid of your unwanted belongings and make some money at the same time. The free LetGo app allows you to sell just about anything from used furniture, clothing, and even cars. Download a photo, description, and price of your item, and the app does the rest by releasing the info onto a marketplace that goes out into your community. It even provides a forum where you can safely communicate with potential buyers.

 

4. Make a Plan

Create a floor plan and see how your furniture will fit in each room before your residential or office movers deliver your belongings. With magicplan, you can scan the rooms in your new home or business and even create 3D models and virtual tours so that everything will fit. Think of it as your own personal designer.

 

5. Welcome to the Hood

Get to know your new neighbourhood with Nextdoor. This app allows you to uncover all aspects of your new location by helping you:

  • Find services such as plumbers, babysitters, window cleaners, etc.
  • Sell or give away used items
  • Locate lost belongings or pets
  • Arrange block parties, yard sales
  • Report on any criminal activity
  • Share safety tips
