5 Apps That Make Moving a Breeze

Moving can feel a lot like juggling — you’re keeping so many tasks in the air that taking your eye off a single one could mean disaster. Why not enlist some help? Turn to technology to mitigate some of the stress of your move. These five apps make moving a breeze.

#1. MagicPlan

Not sure if your old couch will fit into your new apartment? The MagicPlan app is a space-planning tool lets you take photos of your new place and then use a 3D model to configure your furniture and other decor within the app.

#2. TaskRabbit

Sometimes it’s the bits and bobs of your move that collectively take up the most time and money. When you download the TaskRabbit app, you can delegate some of your random, time-consuming tasks to a helper. TaskRabbit workers can do everything from assembling your bed frame to cleaning the bathroom in your old home so you get your deposit back.

#3. Sortly

This is an amazing organizational tool for conducting your move! The Sortly app (which has both a free and $4.99 per month version) lets you record which box your belongings are in, create searchable tags, and even mark boxes with printed QR labels so you can scan and see what’s in each box at any time. For the organization-challenged and those who just love an organized system, this app is a must-have for any move.

#4. NextDoor

NextDoor is a treasure trove of information about your new neighborhood. Log on, give them your address and you’ll be greeted with posts from neighbors about what is happening in your area (your full address won’t be public). You can use the app to ask for recommendations for a plumber, sell old furniture and find out more about community events.

#5. Moved

Did you ever look at everything you have to do to move and just wish you had a personal assistant? The Moved app heard your wish and granted it! This app allows you to mark what you need help with – from getting junk removed to selling items you no longer want to changing your address – and then a real person works with you to accomplish your goals.
