Simple internet, no cell phones. You had to locate moving companies through the phone book and guess which one was the very best. Picking a eating place for moving night involved a collection of accumulated takeout menus or perhaps driving all over to determine what was accessible. And during your long-distance moving road trip? No smartphone to check in, arrange places to stay, or listen to podcasts with.

As helpful as mobile phones ended up being, the progression of smartphones really has made the complete moving process lots of times better.
