You're probably dreading moving week — and you should, it's the worst. There's just so much moving involved — even after scoring a pad, securing the cash and sorting out the rest, you have to M.O.V.E everything. We won't sugarcoat, it's hard.
But there are ways you can make shifting to new cities easier. Okay — it never really gets easier, but maybe less challenging. We can tell you about a few apps that can save you time and energy amid shifting woes.
It's basically a home rental service but it covers a lot more than just the basics. The app has really handy filters, which will help you choose your kind of pad on your budget. You can choose from a studio apartment or two or three BHKs, you'll also have furnished or unfurnished options, and you can choose your locality, too. There are no brokers involved and you just need to pay two months' rent as a security deposit.
You can schedule visits to your apartmenmt via Nestaway and also make use of their home maintenance services throughout your stay.
The first few days of moving month are all about eating out of a box. There's an app that is specifically built to get you home-cooked food anywhere. WatsCooking is basically a peer-to-peer sharing platform, so you can sell the food you cooked, or you can buy from other people. You just have to download the app, look for home chefs around you, and you can call them up directly. Watscooking also offers home-based cooking classes where you can learn from professionals.
You can rent anything on this app, from couches to bikes to microwaves, at monthly rates. This app is a lifesaver for broke millennials as it saves up EMI costs for at least a few months. They also offer refundable security deposits, free relocations, and you can swap furniture or appliances anytime.
Dunzo (Bangalore, Pune)
Delhi has Meratasker, Mumbai has Taskbob and Bangalore and Pune have Dunzo, which is a total multitasker. You can use Dunzo to get your groceries, fix your Macbook, courier something, dry clean your clothes or pay bills. So, yeah, it' basically like a 24-hour assistant, just more efficient.
