Our Top 3 Moving Apps

There’s no doubt that we’re living a digital world. (We won’t lie and say that the majority of our shopping isn’t done online.) There’s something about the convenience of a great app or mobile site that allows you to get what you need exactly when you need it. So when you’re searching for a new apartment, there’s a strong chance that a quick internet surf session will be in order. Allow us to make this process even easier by suggesting a few of our favorite online moving tools and apps!

First things first, every apartment hunt should start with an apartment locator. Why is this a better choice than endlessly googling neighborhoods and street names? For starters, apartment locators have already done the hard work for you by compiling a list of all the local apartments in your city. Also, some apartment locators even offer great incentives like a free or majorly discounted move with professional movers (see: Move For Free). So, use them! They’re free and they make apartment hunting a breeze.

Walk Score

Did you find a few apartments you’re interested in with your apartment locator? Plug them into Walk Score, an awesome free app that shows you how walk/public transportation-friendly your potential apartment is. The higher the score, the easier the commute to work, grocery stores and more!

State Farm Move Tools™

Once you’ve signed your lease, it’s time to start packing! State Farm ‘s Move Tools app is available on iPhones, Androids and iPads. It will help you plan your move from start to finish, including organizing, packing and creating week-by-week checklists. With Move Tools and free professional movers from your apartment locator, moving has never been easier.

Homestyler Interior Design By Autodesk Inc.

It’s time to move in! Homestyler Interior Design is an amazing free app that takes the guesswork out of apartment decorating and furniture arrangement. Snap pictures of your empty apartment and then use Homestyler to arrange 3D images of real furniture in your room. Find inspiration in the Design Stream and even share your designs with friends. It even makes it easy to find local decorators within your budget!

We hope these online tools and mobile apps help make your move seamless and painless! What are your favorite apps?
