The 10 Best Moving Apps for 2022
You’ve heard it before: “There’s an app for that!” It turns out that it’s true for moving, too. These are the top ten moving apps you can download to smooth out your transition:
- Google Keep
Here’s a closer look at each.
Moving App #1: MyMove
The MyMove app
gets you instant access to deals from movers and on packing supplies, and it gives you lists of home services you may need in your old and new areas. You can even use it to compare cable television and internet prices, plus organize a moving checklist.
Moving App #2: Moved
Billed as “your free moving concierge,” the Moved app
lets you get multiple quotes from movers, coordinate all the logistics, and even find the best prices on packing materials. They even help you find storage units that fit all your stuff, help you update your address and show you where to donate items you don’t want to bring to your new home.
Moving App #3: MoveAdvisor
Complete an entire home inventory in minutes, find movers and keep track of your task list with a moving timeline by using MoveAdvisor
. The app, which was featured in Forbes and touted by the National Association of REALTORS®, is well-organized and helps keep you on course for a smooth move.
Moving App #4: Dolly
is a same-day delivery app that works with big-box retailers, small businesses and individuals. Here’s how it works: You order a large or bulky item (like a new sofa), someone from Dolly picks it up and delivers it to your front door on the same day.
Moving App #5: Google Keep
The Google Keep app
lets you jot down lists, make lists about lists, and make lists about lists you intend to make. You can create checklists for just about anything – and even better, you can set deadlines for your lists, schedule reminders to go off at certain times (or when you enter a certain location) and check things off as you accomplish your tasks. For example, you can set Keep to buzz your phone when you’re near your favorite home improvement store and remind you that you need more moving boxes and supplies.
Moving App #6: Unpakt
lets you book an entire move online in just minutes. It can also help you find storage services, warehouses and insurance companies that can help you with the process.
Moving App #7: Sortly
is designed for business owners to keep track of inventory, more people are using it to track their moves. Featuring simple ways to create inventory lists and check things off when they’re accounted for, this app can also help you list the values of all your items – which can, in turn, help you if you need to make an insurance claim.
Moving App #8: OfferUp
The OfferUp app
is a simple way to get rid of things you don’t want to take when you move. You simply list what you want to sell, whether it’s a piece of clothing or a vehicle (or anything in between), and wait for local people to offer to buy it from you.
Moving App #9: Handy
Book house-cleaning, furniture assembly, and other handy-person services with the Handy app. This app is similar to TaskRabbit (more on that next), but it also allows you to shop for furniture and home items.
Moving App #10: TaskRabbit
is the same-day delivery and handy-person service that took the U.S. by storm a few years ago, and it’s grown to epic proportions since partnering with IKEA. There are people to help you out with random (and not-so-random) tasks just a few taps away.
