Whether you're planning a local move across the street or a long distance move across the state you have a lot to keep track of. We've scoured the web to bring you the best apps to help with your next move...

1.) Dropbox

30.jpgDropbox is the easiest way to store, sync, and, share files online. There's no complicated interface to learn. The Dropbox team give you tons of storage space for free and while you're computer is being moved you can access your files from any other desktop computer or mobile device (iPhone, android, etc.). I'm constantly using this app to move files back and forth from my home and office.

2.) Pizza Hut

31.jpgLet's face it, after moving all day the last thing you want to do is cook dinner. The team over at Pizza Hut have made a fun app where you add toppings and watch your pizza come together on your phone. With a click of a button they'll deliver it your new home! Pretty cool.

3.) Moving Van

32.jpgThe Moving Van app allows you to easily identify the contents of every box you pack when moving your house, relocating or putting items into storage. We all know that unpacking after moving your house can be a long, slow process, but this app will help you find a specific item which is still not unpacked, you can simply search for that item and immediately identify the box you need to look in. Don't forget, you could always have out Meatheads out to unpack for you as well.

4.) My Recycle List

33.jpgThis app is great for both before or after a move. This app quickly finds recycling locations nearby that accept a whole variety of different items, for example unpacked moving boxes! Using My Recycle List to find places to recycle unneeded items before you move will save you money. And we all know after a move there's usually a ton of packaging material, cardboard boxes and perhaps a few pieces of furniture which aren't quite fitting into your new home. Use My Recycle List to find a place to dispose of all such items in an environmentally friendly way.

5.) TurboScan


TurboScan turns your iPhone into a portable scanner for receipts, documents, whiteboards, etc. With TurboScan you can quickly scan your documents and email them as PDF or JPEG files. Very useful when your scanner, computer, or filing cabinet all are packed up. When using TurboScan I was surprised about how high quality the scan turned out, and how you can scan a full letter size sheet of paper, email it as a PDF and have it actually print clearly on the other end. Comes with an excellent cropping tool for when you've taken a picture of the scanned item at an angle, the interface moves your finger out of the way so you can match up the corners just right.

We know moving is never an easy task, but these are few apps which will help smooth that transition. Now we don't have an app for Meathead Movers, yet, but another great resource is our moving concierge service. We are very proud to offer this FREE service to our clients, an experienced move concierge open 7 days a week, who will help you screen and arrange for all the related vendors needed to make your next move a success!
