Posted by Melissa Morr on May 2, 2016 11:21:00 AM


There are apps for just about everything these days. If you have an iPhone, Smartphone, Android or other compatible devices, you can download literally thousands of apps for finding anything around the world. Of course, entertainment apps are hugely popular but those apps that make our lives easier and more organized can be invaluable.

For the past number of decades, industries have been striving to establish a global presence. As such, employee relocations are increasing daily, not to mention retirees who are looking for a resort type lifestyle to leave the cold winters behind. Today, there are many apps that can help you plan your relocation from start to finish.

Moving Apps

Whether you are looking for a new home, help with organizing your packing or researching international moving companies, there is an app for you. Here are a few apps that you may want to consider downloading.

  • One of the critical aspects of an international relocation is hiring a reputable household goods moving company. My Move allows you to search for international movers that are licensed in your area and let you read customer reviews. Quotes are available on the app however it is recommended that the potential movers conduct an in-home assessment to obtain the most accurate estimate.
  • Planning and staying organized with your packing process is a tedious process and you can likely use all the help that you can find. Apps such as MoveMatch allow users to compile a checklist of items to be packed and offer a to-do list that will keep you on track. Keep all members of the family involved by sharing the to-do list where you can tick off the tasks completed and add your own tasks.
  • Marking and labeling your packed boxes makes loading and unloading so much easier. Sortly is an app that allows you to create labels showing the contents of the box and the room to which it belongs.
  • Researching the geographical areas around your new residence and the amenities available can be made easy with Movehub. They offer many different types of apps depending on location and provide reviews for most foreign destinations.

There are literally thousands of apps that will prove useful as you organize your move from origin and investigate your new surroundings at your destination. Most are user friendly so you don’t have to be a technical wizard to take advantage of all the options offered.

When you feel that the entire international relocation process is just too overwhelming to wrap your mind around, take advantage of low cost or free apps and let them be your teacher. You will find that some apps are focused on particular functions and others that can be your overall mentor in making sure that your move goes smoothly.
