From Box-Delivered Beds to On-Demand Mover Apps

It's often said that moving is one of the most stressful life events, but these inventive moving ideas help to alleviate some of the strain—physically and mentally.

In order to make moving in and out as easy as possible, there are now beds and mattresses that come in compact boxes, as well as robotic heavy lifting suits and systems where shipping containers can be unloaded from a truck without intervention from a crane. Innovations like these help to take some of the pain out of moving from one place to another.

Apps like Zootly and Lugg make it possible to arrange last-minute and on-demand moving help, which is not always easy to come by when heavy lifting is involved. Another great service is Move Loot, which offers to buy, pick up and deliver items, which is more than most used furniture marketplaces can offer.
