After months of searching online, attending open houses and driving all over town, you’ve finally found the home of your dreams. Congratulations! But before the housewarming party starts, there’s still some work to do, from finding reliable professional movers to locating a convenient self-storage facility.
Fortunately, there are a number of apps that can help you accomplish much of the moving process right from your mobile device. We did some digging and found a few that top our list.
Here’s a closer look at our top five moving apps that will have you settling into your new place faster than you can say “dream home.”

Hotel Tonight has you covered. Download the app to find last-minute hotel deals and at least you’ll be dreaming of your new home from a cozy hotel room.
Instacart: It’s easy to work up an appetite when you’re moving, but the last thing you want to do is stop what you’re doing and run to the store – especially if you haven’t yet learned where the closest grocery store is located in your new neighborhood.
