The Best Apps to Use when Moving Home

Moving home? Why not let technology give you a helping hand with some of these latest app.

Finding your perfect home

You have an idea of your perfect home, but how do you find it? You could walk around the area and check out the local estate agencies, but maybe you live too far away? If it all seems like an impossible task, why not look at some of the apps offered by many well-known property agencies such as, Rightmove UK, Zoopla and On The Market?

The big day and settling in

So you’ve found your new home. All you need to do now is prepare for the move. Firstly, don’t forget to book your removal firm early to get the date you want. Then before you even pick up the packing tape, check out handy apps, such as The Moving App, which has many helpful features, from emailing you packing reminders to printing labels for your boxes. Moving Planner is another useful app that allows you to plan ahead, even creating an inventory of the contents of your boxes. How handy is that?

When the removal van has finally left and you are sitting back with a celebratory glass of wine, it’s only then that you notice the fading paintwork and begin to think about redecorating. As it happens, the Dulux Visualiser app lets you test different colour finishes in your home, even before you put your paint brush in the tin. And if you’re not up to cooking dinner after the big move, why not use the handy AroundMe App for your nearest pizza takeaway? It will point you in the direction of local supermarkets, garages, doctors and schools too.

Moving home is such a stressful time. Luckily technology has come to our rescue with some handy apps that can make this experience so much simpler
