What is a Senior Move Management Company?

Simply put, we are professionals that specialize in assisting older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of downsizing and relocation.

Are you a moving company?

No, we are not a moving company.  We do not own a truck or have the staff that does the heavy lifting.  We subcontract with reputable moving companies that are properly licensed and insured for the actual move.   These companies understand the unique challenges of a senior move.

Why should I hire Senior Move Coordinators over a traditional moving company?

From our initial consultation, through time spent planning, downsizing, packing and un-packing, as well as the move itself, we are with you at every step.  Transitional movers are not familiar with the particular needs of a senior move, and often outsource using day laborers to get your job done.

After you leave, what is there left to do?

Nothing, except relax and enjoy your new home!  When we leave after the “unpack” day, your bed will be made, your dishes will be put away, and all of your belongings will have a home in your new home.

How much will it cost me to use Senior Move Coordinators’ services?

Each move is unique.  At the time of the consultation, we’ll take a look at what needs to be done and then we’ll be able to answer this question.  There are many factors that affect the fee:  the size of your house, the size of your new house, the volume of your belongings, the amount of participation you and /or your family is able to offer, etc.

Will my new home look exactly like my old home?

We’ll do our best to make your new home feel like your current home if you like.  We can arrange pictures on the wall just as you have them now, and place other items so that it feels familiar to you, if that is your desire.

I am out of state but I need to get my parents moved to a retirement community.  Do I need to be there during the relocation process?

Frequently we act as a liaison between the senior community our clients and their out-of-state families.  Throughout the entire relocation process, we will keep you current and up-to-date with phone calls, emails and even digital pictures so it is not necessary for you to be present.

How much time in advance should I be scheduling your company prior to my relocation?

Depending on your needs, desires, limitations and circumstances, we would suggest you not wait to the last minute.  Downsizing a home is a lengthy process even with our expert guidance, so the sooner the process begins, the sooner the weight can be lifted from your shoulders.

Can you provide references?

Absolutely!  If you would like to speak to a past client, let us know and we will make the referral.

Can you help us clean out our parent’s home after they have passed away and get it ready for sale?

Of course!  We are happy to assist at this difficult time.  Please let us know a convenient time and we will arrange a separate complimentary consultation.
