6 apps you need to make moving home easier

by Housesimple on 6th June 2018

There are a lot of things to organise when you are moving home; thankfully, we live in a modern world that has an app for everything, and there are hundreds to choose from to make the process a little easier. Without further ado, our experts have put together a list of our favourites to help you clear, arrange and ship your things without even breaking a sweat.

 

1) Charity Collect

If you have plenty of surplus stuff at home, it’s now even easier to give it to a good cause. Scan the barcodes on your books, CDs, DVDs and games, drop them at a local collection point and raise money for charity while you declutter.

 

2) StoreMates

If you need to pop things in storage during your home move, there are cheaper ways than renting a whole container. The StoreMates app helps you find friendly neighbours with garage or basement space they’re happy to fill – they get some spare cash along the way, and you have an easy nearby storage option.

 

3) Pro moving planner

Manage all your tasks from one easy-to-use platform: the Pro-moving planner. This way you can schedule your removals company, contractors or surveyors while staying on top of your budget.

 

5) Moving Van

As you pack each box, use this handy app to make note of its contents. Take photos of your valuables, assign numbers and names to the boxes and perfectly plan how they’re transported and unpacked.

 

6) AroundMe

Once you’ve picked up the keys to your new place, you might want to scout out your new neighbourhood for all the essential amenities. AroundMe can help you find banks, post offices, restaurants, cafés, bars or even cinemas.
