Using a Home Inventory App when Relocating

If you’re moving to a new house or apartment, you certainly have plenty of work ahead of you in the coming weeks and months. The best way to approach any significant task is to start planning early. This will make things much easier for when your moving day arrives. It’s also a good idea to get rid of stuff you don’t use as you pack. You’re starting a new life in a new village, town or city and you should only take the things you need.

No matter how big or small the number of items is, you need to make an inventory so that you know precisely what possessions you have. You can now download an app for your Android or Apple where you can save each item. There are loads of apps to choose from; most are cheap or free to download. You can make your first action point to download a home inventory app and have a test of its features. Then, your second task should be to contact Woods Removalstoo book relocation.


Best Home Inventory Apps for 2019 –

Sortly– for people who are using a home inventory app for the first time, Sortly is a safe bet because it does everything. You can create several main folders with multiple subfolders. This allows you to save each item per location, i.e., what room it belongs to. It’s also possible to store a lot of information per item.

MyStuff – you can store an incredible amount of information for each item you save in this inventory. Rather than entering the product information manually, it’s possible to scan its barcode to initiate an entry. This is an iOS application, and it comes in two versions: The Lite version is free, but your limit is fifteen items. The full version has more features and would be worth the purchase cost for people with lots of possessions.

Magic Home Inventory– this app allows you to organise your home inventory across several properties and break down each separate inventory by room, listing each item’s location along with a description and photo. The app’s advanced search feature helps you locate items quickly, and you can manually backup your list to another storage location.

Nest Egg– this app is the best choice for individual item data. You can take detailed photos per item including its barcode, purchase date, expiry date and return purchase dates for new products. You can create a log for when you loan out items to family of friends, and it’s possible to export your full inventory lists to save or print.


Other Tips for Moving to a New House –

It’s essential that you start getting things in order now, rather than putting things off for another day.
