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

Moving to Tulsa used to contain far more chaos and -- let's be honest -- prolonged tedious hours than it may currently. Consider moving during a decade as recent as the 90s. Basic internet, no smartphones. You had to search for moving companies via the yellow pages and guess which one was the best. Picking a cafe for moving night required a collection of accumulated takeout menus or driving around to find out what was accessible. And through your long-distance moving journey? No smartphone to check in, arrange accommodations, or tune in to podcasts with.

As helpful as mobile phones were, the evolution of smartphones really has made the whole moving process a million times simpler. Let us take a quick look into all the ways a "simple" smartphone may be used to make your move to Tulsa more painless, less hazardous, and more gratifying all in one small plastic case.

Many people search homes on their phones long before they really start the moving process. Then when you have got a new residence decided on, you'll likely make use of your cell phone to investigate professional moving companies, packing strategies, and buy supplies online. Your cell phone can also be used to find nonprofit organizations and trash hauling services to manage your donations as well as trash you're going to be leaving behind.

Navigating the Road Trip

All you need is a magnetic or clamping dashboard bracket along with a continuous source of power to your mobile phone. Running Google Maps or a similar application, it's easy to direct yourself confidently along known roadways the entire way from your old house to the new one with no risk of becoming lost.

Locating Stops On the Way

Of course, a phone is great for not only a map and route. You can utilize new applications to search for dining places, places to stay, and enjoyable spots to stop as you go along. And the course updates in the event you move off-course or want to include a detour, and that is amazingly beneficial in comparison to paper road maps or old-fashioned printed MapQuest directions.

Staying in Contact with Your Movers

While you are traveling to your new home, so are your professional movers. And you will find numerous circumstances in which you ought to convey updates one direction or another. In case you are detained on the way, you ought to notify your movers of the delay. Similarly, they might need to call you if there is a bump, poor weather, or delay on their journey.

A smartphone allows you and the moving company to keep in contact and also organize your arrivals even if both parties are independently on the route.

Responding to Issues

Then, from time to time, there are roadside problems. If you get a flat tire, see an accident, or get caught in a weather event throughout your journey; that phone can be your lifeline. Having a smartphone, you are able to dial AAA, 911, or perhaps your mom depending on what sort of catastrophe occurs.

You can also promptly rent yourself accommodations, arrange for a repair shop to pick up and also fix your car, and get back on the highway simply by walking to the closest McDonalds and using the free of charge WIFI. And that is perhaps the best thing of all with regards to moving with the power of a smartphone.

Activities on Bare House Day

But your experience isn't over when you arrive at your new residence. Usually, the person moving arrives at the home prior to when the moving truck shows up. Thus, you might find yourself with some hours in an bare residence with not much to unpack and no one to see. That is just fine, as you have a smartphone.

Modern streaming apps make it possible to entertain yourself for limitless hours with nothing except a smallish to medium-sized mobile phone. And if you brought a tablet or laptop computer along with you on the move, all the better. With the help of just about any mobile device, you can convert boring Vacant Home Day into a time of enjoyment and amusement. Watching movies, playing games, or having a big-empty-floor slide celebration while you have the perfect chance.

Calling for First-Night Takeout

And finally, there is undoubtedly a question of what you'll eat on that initial evening. Regardless if you are in an echoing bare property or surrounded by packed boxes, chances are that you are not in the mood to cook dinner. Prior to smartphones, you could have to drive around to find out what is available. These days, you can quickly search for nearby restaurants which deliver and have a yummy supper show up hot at your new doorstep inside of an hour.


Moving to Tulsa might be stressful customarily, yet your next move doesn't need to be all that troublesome. With groundwork, a cool head, and a smartphone available it is possible to take on the world.
