As excited as you are to finally get the keys to your new home, the dark cloud of needing to move is hanging over your head. It’s the feeling many people get that comes from the headache and stress of packing all your belongings and moving them to a new place. This is when technology can come to the rescue.

Realtor.com compiled a list of helpful smartphone apps that can help those who are moving save money, time and take the stress out of relocating. Sortly is an app that allows movers to compartmentalize every inch of their home and create a simple moving checklist which can be sent directly to your moving company. Speaking of which, Unpakt can take the guess work out of finding the right moving company and Dolly can help you find a team to help you unpack.

With this kind of digital help, it can help minimize the feeling of panic when moving day arrives and replace it with excitement.
