Senior Move Managers are like the fairy godmothers of downsizing who can swoop in, whip your home into shape, and help you tackle daunting moves faster than you can say “bippity boppity boo.”

The prospect of downsizing and moving to a smaller home or to a senior living community can be daunting. Because of this, older adults often put off a move they’d like to make. Cleaning out the attic and packing up the shed. Figuring out which belongings to keep and which ones to donate—asking who might be interested in family heirlooms. All of this might feel overwhelming.

One solution to consider is hiring a senior move manager

Many people are unfamiliar with this group of professionals who are experienced at managing all of the details of downsizing and relocating. From supervising the movers to cleaning out the basement, they can make the transition go more smoothly. Older adults making a transition have usually not moved in 20, 30, or 40 years and need to downsize considerably. The organizational and physical tasks associated with planning and implementing such a complex move can be overwhelming for the entire family. It is best to seek the help of experienced, insured professionals.  

What exactly is Senior & Specialty Move Management?

Senior Move Management is the profession that assists older adults, individuals, and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation. We have extensive, practical knowledge about the costs, quality, and availability of various local community resources. One call to More Than A Move, and we can provide you with services for a seamless, successful transition of all kinds. We work one-on-one with individuals and families to accomplish the many tasks associated with moving.

How Can a Move Manager Help?

 Move managers can help in a variety of ways to simplify and destress the moving process. 

  • Organizing, sorting, and downsizing to help you declutter your home. Sort through your belongings, and organize items that you want to sell, toss, or donate (decades of accumulated junk won’t scare us!)
  • Customized floor plans. Create customized floor plans to illustrate how your furniture will fit into your new residence
  • Arranging for the profitable disposal of unwanted items through auction, estate sale, buy-out, consignment, donation, or a combination of the above
  • Interviewing, scheduling, and overseeing movers
  • Arranging shipments and storage
  • Professional packing
  • Unpacking and setting up the new home 
  • Estate cleanouts
