Basic internet, no smartphones. You had to locate moving companies with the yellow pages and assume which one was the very best. Choosing a restaurant on moving night involved a collection of collected takeout menus or driving all over to see what was open. And through your long-distance moving road trip? No smartphone to check in, reserve places to stay, or perhaps tune in to podcasts with.

As helpful as cell phones ended up being, the development of smartphones really has made the entire moving process a thousand times easier. Let us take a brief look into all the ways in which a "simple" smartphone can be used to make your move to Colorado Springs easier, less hazardous, and more gratifying all in one compact plastic case.

And that is possibly the most sensible thing of all with regards to moving with the power of a smartphone.

Entertainment on Bare Home Day

Therefore, you might find yourself with more than several hours in an empty residence with not much to unpack and no one to drop by. But that's just fine, as you have a smartphone.
