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

Moving to Tulsa and Oklahoma City used to contain far more chaos and -- let's 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 through the yellow pages and guess which one was the most suitable. Selecting a eatery on moving night included a stack of collected takeout menus or driving around to find out what was available. And through your long-distance moving road trip? No smartphone to check in, arrange hotels, or even enjoy podcasts with.

As helpful as mobile phones ended up being, the progression of smartphones really has made the entire moving process a million times easier. Let us take a quick look at all the ways in which a "simple" smartphone may be used to make your move to Tulsa and Oklahoma City easier, less hazardous, and more enjoyable all in one small plastic case.

Considering the Move

Thousands of people browse homes on their smartphones long before they really begin the moving process. And when you have a new residence selected, you'll likely make use of your phone to investigate professional moving companies, packing strategies, and find supplies online. Your mobile phone can also be used to find nonprofit organizations and trash hauling providers to deal with your donations as well as trash you will be leaving behind.

Navigating the Road Trip

Subsequently, you might normally want to check out your route to Tulsa and Oklahoma City. A smartphone with built-in GPS is a great dash nav if your vehicle does not have one integrated. You just need a magnetic or clamping dashboard bracket plus a constant supply of power to your mobile phone. Running Google Maps or a similar app, it's easy to direct yourself safely along known roadways the entire way from your previous residence to the new one with no risk of getting lost.

Selecting Stops On the Way

Needless to say, the phone is great for not only a map and path. You may use modern applications to locate dining establishments, motels, and also fun places to stop during the trip. And the route updates should you go off-course or would like to incorporate a detour, and that is incredibly handy compared to paper maps or old-fashioned printed out MapQuest directions.

Keeping in Touch with Your Movers

When you are driving to your new location, so are your professional movers. And there are numerous scenarios in which you may need to communicate messages one direction or another. If you are delayed on the way, you ought to inform your movers of the delay. Also, they might need to contact you in the event that there was a bump, rain, or delay on their journey.

A smartphone enables you and the moving company to remain in touch as well as organize your arrivals even if both parties are individually on the road.

Resolving Emergencies

And then, from time to time, there are roadside emergencies. If you get a flat tire, witness an automobile accident, or even get stuck in a weather event during your road trip; that smartphone is your lifeline. Having a smartphone, it is possible to dial AAA, 911, or maybe your mom depending on what kind of crisis takes place.

You may also instantly get yourself a hotel room, arrange for a mechanic to get and also fix your car, and get back on the highway simply by travelling to the closest McDonalds and utilizing the free WIFI. And that's perhaps the best thing of all about moving with the power of a smartphone.

Entertainment on Bare House Day

Your experience isn't done when you arrive at your new residence. Frequently, the individual moving gets to the property ahead of the moving truck gets there. Therefore, you may find yourself with more than some hours in an bare residence with not much to unpack and no one to visit. But that is just fine, because you have a smartphone.

Today's streaming applications make it doable to amuse yourself for almost endless hours with not a thing except a smallish to medium-sized smartphone. And in case you brought a tablet or laptop computer along with you on the move, all the better. With the help of virtually any mobile device, you can transform boring Bare House Day to a day of relaxation and entertainment. Watching movies, playing games, or having a big-empty-floor dance party while you have the ideal chance.

Calling for First-Night Takeout

Last but not least, there is undoubtedly a question of what you'll eat on that first evening. Regardless if you are in an echoing empty residence or flanked with packed boxes, most likely you are not in the mood to prepare a meal. Prior to smartphones, you could have to drive around to determine what's accessible. However nowadays, it's easy to search for close by eating places which deliver and have a scrumptious supper show up hot to your new front door in less than an hour.


Moving to Tulsa and Oklahoma City may be stress filled customarily, but your future move doesn't need to be all that troublesome. With groundwork, a cool head, along with a smartphone at your fingertips you can take on the world.
