Moving seniors to a smaller home, an apartment, or even into an assisted living or senior community is often a very emotional decision for both the senior as well as the family. Often there are additional services the moving company can provide to make things easier for all involved.
Choosing the Senior Moving Company
One of the most important considerations for anyone selecting senior moving services is to consider the options the moving company provides. This is true for local, long-distance, or even international types of moves.
An additional feature to consider for any senior is packing and unpacking. Having the moving company provide teams of professionals to pack up items and then unpack them in the new location takes the stress of the senior and the family.
A senior moving company should also provide secure short and long-term storage. This can be important if the senior is selling their home and needs space to store items when staging and showing the house. It can also be an essential factor if the senior is downsizing. Storing unused furniture and items with the moving company is a safe, cost-effective solution until the senior and the family determines what to do with the items.
It is critical for senior moving services to ensure the senior is settled into the new location. This includes taking a bit more time to make sure the furniture is in the right location, the electronics are hooked up and working, and the senior is satisfied with the setup of their new living space.
