Seven Apps That Could Help With Your Removal

| September 8, 2016

Our smartphones help us on a day to day basis. There seems to be an app for everything these days – some helpful, some fun and some slightly pointless! But when it comes to a removal, there are some apps out there that can genuinely help you out, and given that we always have our phones with or around us, the following apps can really help before, during or after moving home.

Rightmove (Free)

Rightmove describe themselves as the UK’s number one property website. The Rightmove app allows users to browse the housing market in any UK location from the palm of their hand. Rightmove have a number of useful tools available as well that can help users before their move such as a mortgage calculator.

Home Move Pro (Free- with in-app purchases)

This handy app is purely directed at making the removal process easier and aims to become a hub for your removal tasks and to-do list. It features a planner and organiser as well as template checklists with suggestions of what tasks you might have forgotten about. It is like a personalised to-do list purely for your removal.

Spotify (Free – with paid subscription available)

Spotify is a pioneering music playing app that turns your mobile or tablet into a personalised CD collection. You can search for singles, artists or albums and tailor them into playlists. There are also readymade playlists and suggestions that allow to simply select and get on with your day. This could come in really handy on move day or when packing up your things into boxes.

Pinterest (Free)

Pinterest is a popular app for creative types that are either planning a wedding or for fashion. It is also a great option for home movers looking to collect ideas for decorating their new home or current home for a sale. The idea is to search and discover great ideas from users across the world and add them to your own personalised Pinterest board.

Dulux Visualiser (Free)

One of the leading home decorating companies, Dulux, offer this revolutionary app that helps users picture their home in a new way. Using unique technology, it allows the user to browse the full range of Dulux paint colours and give a realistic live feed or photo of what the room would look like with the new colour. It then provides the option to share these images with family and friends.

Spirit Level (Free)

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Everyone uses spirit levels when they are redecorating a new or current home. But for when you might not have the spirit level to hand then this handy app uses the technology of a smartphone to ensure that your photos are hung straight.

Timeout (Free)

Timeout is a fantastic app when moving to a new city. Timeout acts as a one-stop shop for recommendations on restaurants and bars in most major UK cities. It also provides suggestions on up and coming events and attractions coming up in the chosen city.
