Moving at an older age can be very difficult. At Smooth Move People, we are experienced in moving services for seniors.

Many people choose to relocate to a new home after they retire. Maybe they need to downsize, they choose to go live in a retirement center, or they need to find a home that has one level so they can age in place.

Others have waited their whole lives to move into their dream home and, after retirement, they’re ready to go for it.

Whatever your situation is, here’s how we can help.

#1: Packing

Moving can be exciting, but the process of packing decades worth of belongings is not.

That’s where our team can step in to help! We will do all the packing work for you. Not only do we know how to best pack your belongings, but we know which boxes to use and what the best way to arrange them on the truck is.

We also have a variety of supplies that make things even easier for you. Boxes of all sizes, bubble wrap, paper pads, tape, and more.

#2: Loading and unloading

For many seniors, lifting heavy boxes is simply out of the question. And some folks don’t have family members or other older adults who can help them.

Let us do all the lifting for you! Whether it’s a local move, or something more long-distance, we have reliable employees that will get things loaded into the truck at your old home, then unloaded in the new home. Just tell us where to put things in your new floor plan, and we will get it done for you.

The moving process should be as stress-free as possible. There are lots of things in motion during a move. Whether one is leaving the family home, downsizing and moving to another, smaller home, or prepping for a residence in a senior living community or assisted living facility.

Whatever the circumstances, with customized services included as part of a full-service moving company process, you can think of your moving experience as a Smooth Move for seniors!

#3: Specialty equipment

Moving pianos, decorative art, or family heirlooms is no problem for our experienced team at Smooth Move People.

We understand that you want to preserve your keepsakes and most expensive pieces, keeping them in pristine condition. That’s why we take care to move everything with the care and attention to detail that you expect.

Many seniors we’ve worked with have had estate sales prior to their move. You might consider holding one of your own.

Relocating can be stressful, but hiring an experienced team of movers alleviates a lot of the burden you might feel about the transition to your new home. Keep in mind that there are additional resources you may want to consider, such as contacting the National Association of Senior & Specialty Move Managers. (Some people refer to this organization as the National Association of Senior Move Managers: NASMM.)
