Smart Moving with a Smartphone


If you’re moving to a new home, packing containers likely will become a major part of your life. Even if your personal belongings amount to a scant few, you still need someplace to put them, right?  But once you’ve assembled your collection of boxes, bags, and crates, you’re facing another step. As we Irvine moving companies are well aware, it’s imperative that you identify the contents bunched and squeezed into those containers.

Labels, markers, and the like fill the bill wonderfully, of course. You might, however, find a technological solution to your liking. The solution is something familiar to anyone with smartphone – QR codes.

If you opt to track personal inventory via QR code, this Irvine mover recommends creating a property list and storing on your mobile device. With that task under your belt, you’ll need to obtain a QR code generator. There are many free options available online. Just hunt around until one tickles your fancy.

Once the generator is in hand, your next step is creating coded labels. Each of these will correspond to different storage containers. Simply attach each label to the appropriate container.

For the grand finale, you’ll need a way to read the codes at unpacking time. Fortunately, you can choose from a variety of free scanning apps available for both iPhone and Android.

Yes, some effort is involved in creating a coding system. But when it’s time to unpack, you’ll be do something all of us Irvine movers want to do – make your life a little easier.
