Using Smartphone for MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to Tulsa used to contain much more uncertainty and -- let's be honest -- extended boring hours than it can today. Think about moving in a decade as recent as the 90s. Fundamental internet, no cell phones. You had to locate moving companies with the yellow pages and guess which one was the very best. Choosing a restaurant on moving night included a stack of accumulated takeout menus or even driving around to see what was accessible. And throughout your long-distance moving journey? No smartphone to check in, arrange places to stay, or perhaps tune in to podcasts with.

As helpful as mobile phones ended up being, the progression of smartphones really has made the whole moving process a million times simpler.

And the course updates in the event you move off-course or want to incorporate a detour, which is extremely useful when compared with paper maps or old-fashioned printed MapQuest instructions.

Staying in Contact with Your Movers

While you are traveling to your new residence, so are your professional movers. And you will find a lot of instances where you ought to communicate messages one way or another. If you're detained on the way, you should inform your movers of that delay. Similarly, they might need to call you if there was a bump, poor weather, or delay on their route.

A smartphone enables you and the moving company to keep in contact as well as organize your arrivals even though both parties are individually out on the route.

Resolving Emergencies

And then, at times, there are roadside situations. If you get a flat tire, observe an automobile accident, or get stuck in a weather event on your excursion; that phone can be your lifeline. Using a smartphone, you are able to dial AAA, 911, or perhaps your mom hinging on what kind of emergency arises.

And that is perhaps the best thing of all with regards to moving with the power of a smartphone.

Entertainment on Empty Home Day

Thus, you may find yourself with a few hours in an bare home with not anything to unpack and no one to drop by. That's just fine, because you have a smartphone.

Modern streaming apps make it doable to occupy yourself for countless hours with not a thing but a small to medium-sized smartphone. And in case you brought a tablet or laptop along on the move, all the better. With just about any mobile device, you can convert tedious Vacant Home Day into a time of rest and entertainment. Watching movies, playing games, or having a big-empty-floor dance event while you have the best opportunity.

Phoning for First-Night Takeout

Last but not least, there is undoubtedly a question of what you will eat on that first night. Regardless if you are in an echoing bare home or maybe encompassed by packed cartons, chances are that you're not in the mood to prepare a meal.

However nowadays, you can quickly search for nearby eating places that deliver and have a yummy meal arrive hot to your new doorstep inside of an hour.


Moving to Tulsa may be tense customarily, however your next move needn't be all that problematic. With preparation, a cool head, and a smartphone in hand you'll be able to take on the world.
