Senior Moves

Moving a long distance is hard especially for a senior citizen. The stress and time alone could make it difficult on anyone. Luckily, there are many wonderful moving companies available that are experienced with senior moves even if they’re planning on moving into a senior citizen nursing home. Buying moving services through a professional mover is often less expensive than renting a truck, buying packaging materials, and hiring friends and family to help.

Long Distance Senior Moving Companies

There are many different moving services available for seniors and other potential customers. This makes the process of moving much easier on those who purchase these services for relocation. As a senior, it is best to let trained and experienced movers handle the work. Otherwise, you’re likely to experience injury or end up with damaged goods.

Heavy Furniture

Heavy furniture moves require special equipment, tools and training. Depending on the piece of furniture being relocated, it may need to be disassembled, wrapped in blankets, placed on a dolly, wrapped in plastic, and loaded on to the truck with the assistance of several professional movers. They will then reassemble the piece when it reaches its new home. This could be for pianos, pool tables, large bed sets, and other weighted, bulky furniture.

Long Distance Moving

Long distance moves require a different kind of attention too. More than likely, a bigger truck will be necessary and the company will have to have employees who specialize in long distance moving. In some cases, a long distance move will require a transfer midway through their travels. Many movers will offer satellite tracking through Wi-Fi enabled devices, making it possible for the senior to follow their belongings as they’re in route.

Full Service Packaging

Full service packaging is when the movers are hired to pack up all of your belongings before moving day. They are properly trained to package correctly and they use all of the right, highest quality materials. They will clearly label the boxes and put them in the proper rooms at their new destination. They’ll also create an inventory list at the time of packing.

Senior Citizen Discounts

Many movers offer discounts to certain customers. Senior discounts on moving service are often one of the perks offered. Don’t hesitate to ask if you qualify for this deduction.
