It’s no secret that moving is a difficult process. There’s so much to do and keep track of that it’s easy for things to fall through the cracks. Luckily, these apps can help make the process run more smoothly. Whether it’s finding the best mover in your area or keeping track of what’s in each box, these apps will help streamline your moving process.

Time management and organization

App: Wunderlist

Wunderlist is a web to-do list where you can easily keep track of and share your information. Set deadlines, make lists, schedule reminders (what time the movers are coming), and share your list with people helping you move – you can assign tasks to people you’ve shared your to-do list with.

Keeping track of what’s in each box

App: Sortly

Sortly is a digital organizer where you can keep an organized inventory of what you packed in each box. That way you’ll be able to find your stuff easily in your new place without having to sort through every box.  With the premium account, you can even create QR code labels for your boxes.

Finding a moving company

App: Unpakt

Unpakt helps you plan, compare, book and manage your move efficiently and smoothly. Instead of calling around for referrals and filling out tons of forms, all you have to do is enter your move details, compare prices and reviews, choose a verified mover, and book online. You’ll be able to compare moving companies’ prices based on how much stuff you have – no ballpark estimates or hourly rates.

Help with heavy lifting or manual labor

Running out of time to disassemble all your furniture? Hire a Tasker to complete home repairs, deep clean your home, or disassemble your bed frame.
