Trusted Retired and Senior Moving Service

Senior and Retired Moving Professionals. Movers You Can Trust!

 At Redlands Moving we know it is overwhelming financially and emotionally, especially for  seniors who may be moving for the first time in years, and moving for  what may be their final time. The logistics, the money, and the feelings  brought out in a move are challenging and stressful.

Once you’ve  decided where to move, the how to move is the next step. And it won’t be  easy. But it can be easier with help whether that help is from family  and friends, volunteers or professionals.

Not everyone has a son  or daughter, relative or friends to help out with the monumental task of  moving. Your children have their own lives and may not have the time or  resources to help. You may not have friends physically capable of  lending a hand.

A fast-growing market in the moving segment are  senior move managers. They are also known as senior transitions and  senior relocations. These companies specialize in the moving of seniors  who have different needs and challenges than younger generations.


We offer assistance from beginning to end:

 

Planning

  • In-home consultation where wants and needs are discussed and assessed
  • Develop a moving plan based on those wants and needs
  • Provide a move timeline and checklist of tasks to be completed
  • Measure furniture and develop a floor plan for the new residence that will show where the furniture will go

Organizing

  • Determining what items to take, sell or donate
  • Assistance deciding what and what not to take
  • Work with moving companies to arrange move time and meet with movers to coordinate the move at both the old and new residence
  • Pack items to be moved using either the customer’s packing materials or the senior move manager’s
  • Labeling boxes for easy unpacking and keeping an inventory of all items
  • Coordinate stopping and starting utilities, cable, etc. at old and new home


WE CAN ALWAYS HELP PACK AS WELL

 Whether you’re looking to get your parents moved from their home into a  retirement or assisted living community and aren’t sure where to start,  or you’re unable to pack the items in your home yourself, our trained  packing professionals can do as little or as much packing as you need  help with. Many customers find it helpful to have Redlands moving have the local professionals pack the fragile items or certain rooms, and they handle the rest.  Just as we tailor your move, we can customize our packing services to  fit your individual needs. 


 

We understand seniors often deal with a unique set of needs and  concerns. Many of our senior customers struggle with grief from leaving  their long-time family home, fear of losing sentimental belongings, or  anxiety of facing unknown physical challenges.


At Redlands Moving and Storage, we’re experienced in tackling challenging  relocations and specialize in moves that may be a little bit more  sensitive and require emotional capable movers on the job. These moves include arranging moving and  packing services with adult children looking to move their senior  parent(s), downsizing from a large family home, moving belongings from a  cottage to primary residence, or even moving and storing items during a home remodel.


Moving Day

  • Coordinate with the moving company so that all items are correctly moved or left for the sale or donation
  • Some senior move managers are also elderly moving companies who will load and transport your belongings
  • Unpacking of essential items
  • Setting up the furniture according to the floor plan
  • Connecting electronics such as TV, phone, and computer


 

Other Services By Redlands Senior Movers

  • Prepare and conduct sale of items in home not taken to new residence
  • Arranging for items not sold/moved to be donated or disposed
  • Coordinate professional cleaning of home
  • Realtor referrals for selling of old home
  • Home repairs and contractor referrals for preparing old home for sale

Flexibility

The other nice thing about using senior moving companies is that you can typically choose which of their services you want.

For  example, say you have relatives and friends who can pack and move you,  but you need to the move to be planned (establish a timeline, hire a  realtor, etc.) first. You can hire a company to take care of the  planning, make recommendations on a realtor to sell your home, and hire  contractors for any repairs or improvements.

Some Tips To Help Your Move Go Stress Free

Keep These Tips In Mind

 

Hiring a Moving Company

One of the services of a senior move  manager is recommending a good senior moving company. Even with this  recommendation, you’ll still want to do your homework to ensure you’re  getting the right mover to protect yourself and your belongings.

The  Department of Transportation’s Household Goods Programs makes the  following recommendations before entrusting your property with a mover.


1) Get a written estimate from several movers that is based on an actual inspection of your household goods.


2) Make sure the mover is licensed and insured (see below for more info)


3)  Don’t just pick the cheapest mover; pick one with a good reputation and  with a history of delivering on time. Movers are bound by law to  deliver your goods for no more than 10% above the “non-binding  estimate”—what the mover believes the move will cost based on the  estimated shipment weight. This is known as the 110% rule.


4) Your mover is required to give you “Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move.” Read it. Then research moving requirements for your state. You can find your state’s requirements here.


Go to the US Department of Transportation’s Mover Registration Search to check out a potential mover. You’ll find licensing, insurance info,  complaints, safety information and company contact information.



*Be sure to ask if the moving company offers a senior discount or any other discount that may apply such as retired military, civil service and AAA members.


 You can rest assured our fully licensed, insured, and bonded movers can  get the job done with clean trucks and proper moving equipment, whether  you are moving just down the road or across the country
