Nothing gets you moving quite like music! We all have a playlist for different aspects of our lifes from the gym to the shower, and moving is no exception. Packing up all your belongings and relocating them is a daunting task for anyone, but nothing keeps you motivated like the words of your favorite artists. Whether you are packing your moving boxes, loading your moving truck or driving it, crank up the tunes to help the time go by in style.

Everyone has their own taste in music and your Moving Day Playlist may differ, but songs relating to moving and traveling never steer you in the wrong direction. It can also double as a timer because it shows the total amount of songs and duration of time the playlist lasts. If you have a certain goal in mind as to how long you would like your move to take, fill your playlist with songs that will last that time. Use the 10 song above to start your Moving Day Playlist!
