Technology is great, especially during a move. You’ll never have to worry about doing the heavy lifting without some awesome tunes nor will you ever have to worry about which items are where if you have the right app in hand! Ensure a positive and efficient moving day by installing these “moving apps” on your phone in preparation for the big day.
Spotify For Good Tunes
Moving day isn’t complete without some good music. It’s the perfect way to motivate you to get you started. Download Spotify and enjoy millions of songs or one of their many playlists. Plug in your headphones for some solo packing or hook your phone up to a speaker for everyone to enjoy during the move.
Sortly for organizing your tasks
There are so many small tasks needed to be done in order to move. From decluttering to packing, wrapping, cleaning – you name it – the list of things to do is vast. Avoid forgetting a crucial step with the Sortly moving app. This slice of technology allows you to create weekly to-do lists, so you can stay on schedule throughout the big move.
Trackr For Keeping Track of Important Items
It’s amazing how quickly things get lost when your entire life is packed up in boxes. The last thing you want is to lose the keys to your moving truck, or worse, to your new house. Use the Trackr app and add Bluetooth beacons on the important items you can’t afford to lose or misplace during the move.
Movematch For Estimating Weight of Boxes
This moving app is great for estimating the approximate weight of your items. Doing so allows you to determine how many professional movers you’ll need to do the heavy lifting. You can also create and send a list to your movers telling them where the boxes need to go.
Movingday For Labeling Your Boxes
With a name like that, you can’t go wrong with this moving app on moving day. This app allows you to make labels and barcodes for quick and easy scanning and organization.

Magicplan For Determining Floor Plan
A creative and must have moving app is MagicPlan. Determine if all your furniture will fit in your new home by using the app to measure rooms with a click of a picture. This allows you to sell or donate furniture that won’t fit, so you don’t have to move heavy items for no reason.
