Stretch UR Dollar Moving is set up perfectly to accommodate moving seniors from home to home or from their home to an assisted living residence. As with all clients, when a senior citizen is moving they need trust worthy people they can rely on to do a quality job, with no surprises when it comes to pricing. Stretch UR Dollar Moving workers are movers thoroughly trained to deliver outstanding service. The other comment we hear a lot is that our movers and packers have a work ethic not often seen in today’s generation, which always feels so good to hear! The characters of our employees ensure our senior moving clients don’t have to worry about our willingness to please, as it’s an innate characteristic. Even more important, the entire staff at Stretch UR Dollar Moving is well-versed in and empathetic to the stresses that, unfortunately, often accompany moving after retirement or to an assisted living residence.
Each time you move is a wonderful opportunity to organize and perhaps finally get rid of some things that you no longer need. If you plan on disposing items, it’s best to do so before the move. This way you don’t have to pay to have them moved. A garage sale in the weeks leading up to your relocation is a great way to do this, while putting a little money back in your pocket. Downsizing your living quarters? You might not have room for all the sentimental items you can’t bear to part with. We recommend planning ahead by finding a mini storage near your new home; this will make it more convenient to visit. Our staff is happy to help with this process, whether it’s finding a storage unit, a consignment shop or a service to scan and archive old family pictures. Also be sure to utilize the moving checklist, a compilation of tasks that will make sure you’re prepared for move day.
Before move day, go through your belongings and prioritize which items must go to your new home and which items can go to storage. An excellent way to communicate this to the movers is by getting a couple of different colored post-its; one color can mean new residence and the other color storage. Stretch UR Dollar Moving staff are trained for visual cues like this and will stage the loading of the moving truck in groups for efficient unloading, which will save you time and money.
The most time consuming part of preparing your household for moving is often the packing. Individually wrapping a fragile china service for 12 is very tiresome and takes quite a while. Sometimes being on your feet all day isn’t an option, we understand. Feel like taking it on yourself? Work in spurts of 30 to 60 minutes at a time. The other option some of our senior moving clients opt for is packing. Our packers are more than happy to come to your home and handle all the packing and prepping for you. Just remember to take it easy and leave all the heavy lifting for us.
The most important thing our staff does is listen. We listen to your moving needs, ask about specific concerns, and then customize from our spectrum of services to create the perfect move for you. Please contact us and let us know how we can help make your next move a success!
