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

Moving to Killeen used to include a lot more chaos and -- to be honest -- prolonged monotonous hours than it can currently. Think about moving during a decade as recent as the 90s. Simple internet, no smartphones. You had to look for moving companies with the telephone book and assume which one was the best. Choosing a eating place for moving night involved a collection of accumulated takeout menus or perhaps driving about to find out what was open. And through your long-distance moving road trip? No smartphone to check in, book hotels, or listen to podcasts with.

As helpful as cell phones were, the progression of smartphones really has made the complete moving process lots of times simpler. Let us take a brief look at the many ways in which a "simple" smartphone enables you to make your move to Killeen less cumbersome, less hazardous, and more pleasant all in one small plastic case.

Considering the Move

Lots of people browse residences using their cell phones long before they ever begin the moving process. And when you've got a new home picked out, you will likely make use of your mobile phone to research professional moving companies, packing strategies, and find supplies online. Your cell phone could also be used to look for charities and trash hauling services to manage your donations as well as trash you may be leaving behind.

Navigating the Road Trip

Following, you'll naturally need to check out your route to Killeen. A smartphone with the help of built-in GPS is a great dashboard nav if your vehicle does not have one integrated. You only need a magnetic or clamping dashboard mount along with a steady supply of power to your phone. Running Google Maps or a similar application, it's easy to direct yourself confidently along known roads all the way from your old home to the new one with zero risk of getting lost.

Finding Stops Along the Way

Obviously, a phone is perfect for not only a map and directions. You can utilize new apps to discover places to eat, hotels, along with entertaining places to stop as you go along. And the route updates if you go off-course or choose to include a detour, which is unbelievably handy in comparison to paper road maps or old-fashioned printed out MapQuest instructions.

Staying in Touch with Your Movers

While you are traveling to your new home, so are your professional movers. And there are many events where you may need to communicate updates one way or another. If you're delayed on the way, you should inform your movers of that delay. Furthermore, they may need to phone you if there's a bump, bad weather, or holdup on their route.

A smartphone enables you and the moving company to remain connected and also organize your arrivals even when both parties are independently out on the road.

Resolving Emergencies

Then, occasionally, there are roadside situations. If you get a flat tire, observe a collision, or even get stuck in a storm during your road trip; that smartphone can be your lifeline. With a smartphone, you can dial AAA, 911, or your mom hinging on what sort of crisis transpires.

You can also instantly find yourself a room for the night, request a mechanic to pick up as well as fix your vehicle, and get back on your way merely by travelling to the nearest McDonalds and using the complimentary WIFI. And that's probably the best thing of all about moving with the power of a smartphone.

Activities on Empty Home Day

But your experience is not over when you arrive at your new house. Generally, the individual moving gets to the home before the moving truck arrives. Thus, you could find yourself with more than several hours in an empty property with not anything to unpack and no one to see. But that is just fine, because you have a smartphone.

Modern streaming applications make it achievable to occupy yourself for endless hours with not a thing but a smallish to medium-sized phone. And if you brought a tablet or notebook computer along on the move, all the better. Using virtually any mobile device, you'll be able to transform monotonous Empty Home Day to a time of rest and entertainment. Watching movies, playing games, or having a big-empty-floor boogie celebration while you have the ideal opportunity.

Phoning for First-Night Takeout

And lastly, there's the dilemma of what you will eat on that primary evening. Regardless if you are in an echoing empty house or perhaps encompassed by packed cartons, most likely you aren't in the mood to cook dinner. Ahead of smartphones, you could have to drive around to see what's accessible. Currently, you can quickly search for nearby eating places which deliver and have a tasty dinner get there hot to your new front door in under an hour.


Moving to Killeen could be tense typically, however your upcoming move doesn't need to be all that frustrating. With preparation, a level head, and a smartphone at hand it is possible to take on the world.
