What can Senior Moves do to help me with my move?
Just about anything that will make your move easier for you. We can suggest places you might like to live, help you decide what to take with you, pack, unpack, organize your new home, and dispose of the items you had to leave behind.
How do we get started with Senior Moves?
First, we’ll develop a plan for your move. We’ll figure out a timetable that makes sense and then schedule the work to be done. One of the first things you can do is to start thinking about what you’d like to take with you.
I'm concerned that my new place won't feel like home to me. I like the way things are here.
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.
My daughter will be in town the week of the move. She wants to help. How does this work, if I hire Senior Moves?
We work as a team with you and any family members you’d like. The more your family can do, the less you will need to pay Senior Moves to do! We’ll take our lead from you and your daughter, and do what’s necessary to make sure everything gets done.
What if we want to take the car with us, or we don't need the car any more?
We can make arrangements for the car to be moved, sold, or donated.
Should I rent a storage unit for things I can't take with me?
We don’t recommend this, unless it is just for a short period of time until the items can be taken by relatives or friends. If you store items just because you can’t bear to part with them, you will be wasting your money. If you can’t use it now, it’s best to pass it along to someone who can.
How much will it cost to find out if Senior Moves can help me?
We are happy to provide you with a complimentary no-obligation consultation.
How do I know what furniture to keep, get rid of, and what will fit in my new place?
We’ll work with you on this. The space available in your new residence will be a factor, as well as your personal preferences and comfort. We’ll measure your furniture and then prepare a customized floor plan of your new residence. This will tell us a lot about what will fit!
Who pays the moving company?
You will pay the moving company directly on the day of the move.
My mother lives in another state, I want her to be closer to me. I can't take much time off from my job. Can you help?
Yes! In a situation like this, we will find a senior move manager in your area who can take care of the pre-move activities. Once the moving truck arrives here, Senior Moves will take over. We will work closely with the other move manager to determine which items will fit in the new residence.
How can I be sure that I get tax credit for items I donate to charity?
We will provide you with an inventory sheet for keeping track of donations you make, and with a receipt for any items we donate for you.
How much will it cost me to use Senior Moves' 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 volume of your belongings, the amount of participation you and/or your family is able to offer.
