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:
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.
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.

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.
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
