What You Need to Know About Finding Senior Moving Assistance

No one said moving is simple – especially for seniors. If you’re looking to downsize and relocate to a retirement community, consider hiring senior moving assistance. A team of professionals can make a smooth, headache-free transition out of an otherwise stressful process. 

The Do’s and Don’ts of Finding Senior Moving Assistance

It’s important to carefully research your options before hiring help. You want to be sure the team you select has extensive experience moving residents into retirement or assisted living community. Not sure where to start? A few key do’s and don’ts of finding senior moving assistance will help you find the right movers: 

DO: 

  • Find movers that offer a full suite of services. Some movers offer basic services that don’t go beyond loading and unloading the moving truck. Look for movers with a full suite of services including  move management, packing, crating and shipping. The movers you partner with should be able to accommodate your specific needs. 
  • Make sure you have storage arrangements. Moving often means downsizing, and some of your furniture and belongings might not have a place in your new home. Once you’ve identified the items that are making the trip, look for a local storage facility to house the remainder of your belongings for short- or long-term periods. 

DON’T:

Starting with meeting Nicole at the main office just as they were closing to working with Darren and his crew today, Hansen Bros. could not have been more pleasant to work with. Nicole was amazing to get this move on the books with Tony from the East side office. Tony called right away and reassured me of our times on move day. I appreciate that I was able to make large changes to my order with very short notice, both Nicole and Tony were flexible to accommodate those changes. Darren, Tyrone, and Enrique did an amazing job, I had some difficult pieces to move---over size fragile artwork, a very heavy oversize pole bed, they came up with solutions to all challenges. When I would get distracted, they would just keep me on track and were very helpful and pleasant to work with, thank you Darren and team, I appreciate all that you did for us today!

  • Select movers without senior moving assistance experience. You want experienced, reliable movers to help complete your relocation. It’s important to take an in-depth look at movers before signing on. Check previous customers’ reviews and testimonials. You can also access the Better Business Bureau to obtain moving companies’ business ratings. 
  • Hire movers without interstate capabilities. If you’re moving across state lines but have hired local movers, it’s important to make sure they have third-party van line partnerships. Once the relocation has passed your moving company’s geographical range, belongings will be handed off to an interstate partner – and safely delivered to their destination.
