Using Smartphone for MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to Oklahoma City used to contain much more uncertainty and -- to be honest -- prolonged boring hours than it can today. Contemplate moving in a decade as recent as the 90s. Basic internet, no mobile phones. You needed to look for moving companies through the phone book and guess which one was the very best. Picking a restaurant on moving night involved a stack of collected takeout menus or perhaps driving around to see what was available. And during your long-distance moving road trip? No smartphone to check in, arrange places to stay, or even enjoy podcasts with.

As beneficial as mobile phones ended up being, the evolution of smartphones really has made the entire moving process a thousand times better. Let's take a quick look at all of the ways a "simple" smartphone enables you to make your move to Oklahoma City more painless, less dangerous, and more gratifying all in one tiny plastic case.

Whether you're in an echoing empty home or maybe surrounded by packed cartons, most likely you're not in the mood to cook dinner. Prior to smartphones, you might have to drive all over to find out what is open. However nowadays, you can quickly search for nearby eating places that deliver and have a delicious meal arrive hot to your new front door in under an hour.
