Most of us have a smartphone today. The smartphone is a great tool for many things. Using your smartphone to make your move easier is no exception. To start, most of us have our phones with us as a constant companion. So, throughout your move why not think of your smartphone as a virtual assistant; a secretary of sorts. From navigation to neighborhood demographics to finding local restaurants to eat at throughout your move, using a smartphone just makes good sense.



If you are in the early stages of your move, you may have already experienced the usefulness of your phone by searching for new locations and comparing their prices and amenities. By taking your search a few steps further, you can also locate the surrounding businesses, churches and schools in a particular location of interest. Don’t forget the fact that it is also possible to map the locations of your search using the GPS within the smartphone. This is your smartphone at work for you, right from the comfort of your easy chair.
