Relocating is never an easy undertaking. Most people have excellent reasons for moving to a new home or even a new city, state, or country. Perhaps you have found a safer neighborhood or a larger home that you can now afford. Or maybe there is a higher-paying job waiting for you at your destination. It could be that you’ve retired and you’re ready to live in a warmer climate. Whatever your reasons for changing locations, though, pulling up stakes and moving to greener pastures is definitely easier said than done. Not only do you have to sell your current home (or buy out a lease), but you also have to find new living arrangements that will meet your needs (space, cost, etc.). And then there are all of the little details to attend to, like making checklists, packing and unpacking, and for most people, hiring movers to transport your household from here to there. The process can be a bit harrowing to say the least. But there is one great app for Apple devices that could just make your next move hassle-free, and here are a few reasons to download My Move.
Despite the fact that this application is free, it has gotten far better reviews than several similar paid apps (like Moving List, Moving Checklist Pro, and so on), as well as other freebies. Complaints against other apps range from common gripes like ad support to issues with the functionality, such as an inability to search items after the fact or having to enter categories (like room names) over and over again because headings have not been provided. But My Move operates a little differently, allowing families headed for relocation to set up tasks on a timeline, create moving checklists, make notes, access helpful tips, and even find movers to help them get to their new location. And the developer is currently working on an inventory checklist feature that will be added to the next version of the app.
So what do you really get when you use this app that others can’t provide? My Move’s main functionality revolves around helping you find movers for your relocation. To that end you can search moving companies by state to compare reviews, ratings, consumer reports, and customer testimonials and complaints. This should help you to select a business in your area that is reputable, reliable, and upstanding. In addition, you can see which states each business operates in (if you’re looking at a state-to-state move) and also search by top-rated companies. And when you find a few you like, you can request quotes through the app to see which company will offer the best price. You can even calculate the estimated weight of your household goods to be moved as a way to determine a more accurate estimate of cost.
But the app has a lot more to offer. The planning features allow you to add moving-related tasks to a calendar so that you can easily see what needs to be done before, during, and after the move and stay on track throughout (like checking out areavibes.com to find a good neighborhood, calculating the distance you have left to travel en route to your destination, making sure you file a change of address with the post office, and so on). It also has a handy tip section to ensure that you’ve got all your ducks in a row, as well as a notes section for helpful reminders. And with plenty of rave reviews from users, this app is light years ahead of the competition, and it only looks to get better
