Awesome apps that will make your move SO much easier!

Did you know that so many of the stresses of moving can be relieved by your smart phone? That’s right! There arFeatured imagee tons of apps designed to help you actually make the process of moving a whole lot easier. We’ve scoured the app stores to find the coolest apps and we just couldn’t wait to share them with you!

HashMove

HashMove was created to simplify the process of searching for movers and to provide an end-to-end experience in the moving process, including real-time updates. The creators of the app experienced enough bad moves that they figured “there had to be a better way to find, hire and pay qualified professional movers.”

HashMove - OverviewEach provider on the app goes through a business verification and training process in order to qualify to be on the app. Along with moving services, HashMove also has verified businesses for junk removal as well.

HashMove is currently available in the San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Austin and is expanding to Los Angeles, Portland, Chicago, New York City, Boston, Washington DC and other metro areas within the next 6-12 months.

Sortly

For people who may need some extra organizational help, Sortly is your answer. It is simple and easy-to-use and allows you to stay organized, no matter how many items you are moving. As you are packing, you can inventory whFeatured imageere you put items into folders and even sub-folders, so you will be able to find exactly where something is located, not just a general box or room.

Another great feature of this product is the ability to take video and photos of objects so you can document your personal items in case of loss or theft. This comes in handy when after a move, you are not able to find a receipt of a certain item that is missing or damaged, but you can show the exact item visually.

The app also includes a moving checklist, (although we really like the one here). And just so you never leave behind an item that you may have let a friend borrow, there is a way to track who has your items and the ability to set reminders to ask for them back. (Let’s be honest, that is something we ALL need!)

The app measures rooms and draws floor plans just by taking a picture of the room. You can move around objects and figure out exactly how you want a room before a single piece of furniture is moved into your house.
