When you’re getting ready to move, it may sometimes feel like there’s an endless amount of tasks on your “to-do” list, but staying organized can be easy with a little help from your phone. With the right planning and a few handy tools in place, you can make sure that your move stays streamlined, on-schedule, and all of your important lists and documents are always safely on-hand. Here, the team at Brookline Transportation has put together our favorite tips and tricks for making the most of your move—using your phone!
While it may seem like a no-brainer to some, adding everything move-related into your phone’s calendar is a quick and easy way to make sure that no delivery date, in-home appointment or other important time (and related details) is forgotten or “slips through the cracks.” You can also set alerts and special notes to remind you of upcoming events.
What better way to remember important furniture and room measurements than to have real-life photos of them? Use your camera to document the condition of your furniture and special items (pre-move), room measurements, layout of your decorative shelves and even the intricate way that your cable/tv/electronics are set up. Photographing these details before you move will be incredibly helpful and efficient when you’re reassembling and unpacking everything in your new home. Having photos can also help assure that all of your items have arrived and that they’re in the same condition they were packed in. For even more organization, sort each type of photo into a different “album” or folder, so you can access what you need in an instant.
3. The Cloud
For your most important documents, such as your moving paperwork and inventory of your items, storing digital copies in the cloud, an online file storage system, will ensure that even if the physical versions get lost or damaged, you still have your most important information on-hand.
4. Digital Perks
Whenever available, take advantage of your moving company’s special digital features, such as live shipment tracking, move progress updates, email notifications and more.
