Downsizing & Senior Moving Services

*****COMING IN SEPTEMBER 2017*****

As Senior Move Managers, we specialize in assisting older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation.  The goal of this service is to make your move easier… If you are considering a move to smaller quarters or your parents need assistance in making a change, we can help.  When adult children live out of town or are busy with their own families and careers, we can provide the support needed for moving seniors with care.

How Can We Help?

We work with you and your family on all or most aspects of moving, including:

  • planning and preparing for the move
  • developing floor plans
  • preparing the client’s home for sale
  • scheduling and overseeing movers
  • shipping items to family members
  • profitably disposing of unwanted belongins
  • handling donations
  • arranging for storage
  • packing
  • unpacking and resettling the new home

Each move is different and the needs of each situation are evaluated. Charges for these services are based on hourly rates and will vary by project.  If you’d like an idea of price ranges on previous moves, please contact us.

Again, this service will be available in Northeast Atlanta in  September 2017.

Moving for Seniors Workbook Available

If you are not interested in purchasing Downsizing and Moving Services, here is another option.  A good place to start the downsizing process is by reading Moving for Seniors, a workbook created by Barbara Morris of Smooth Transitions®. This step-by-step guide features information on when to downsize, where to move, what to move, how to keep it simple, and tips for adult children. The book includes many charts, questions, and forms to make any move easier. Moving seniors with care and consideration is paramount.

The 59 page workbook features basic questions as to should I downsize, what are my options, when to start, and how to accomplish such a monumental task without losing my sanity! Useful tips on what to do with a lifetime of accumulations and basic do-it -yourself hints on surviving the process are included. Even if you are not planning a move for several years, its never too early to start weeding through your “stuff”.

Moving for Seniors combines the step-by-step process to help seniors and their adult children decide if it is time to make a move and then how to get it done. “I’ve taken what works and put it in a workbook format,” she says.
