Senior moving companies dos and don'ts

What you need to know when considering a senior mover

In the Comfort Life Spotlight

A Senior Move Management Company assists seniors and their families in all aspects of the move transition. Services may include everything from preparing the home for the real estate market, consulting to find the right real estate professional, downsizing the home, choosing what to take to the new home, sale, donation and disposal of unwanted items, storage, packing and unpacking (and set-up) of the new home.

Senior Move Management is a relatively new industry, and there are few regulations to protect the senior from hiring a company that is not qualified to handle the transition in a professional and cost-efficient manner. Anyone who has moved someone can claim they are a senior move manager. To complicate things further, some movers say they do it all!

Here are the do’s and don’ts, to ensure you are hiring a professional senior move management company that will make your transition seamless and cost-efficient.

The Do’s

Before you contact a senior move management company, do your research.

The Don’ts

Remember, the consultant is the frontline for the company. If they present poorly and have little interest in listening to your story, it’s a pretty good sign you won’t be happy with their service.
