Frequently Asked Questions About Senior Move Management
Q: Why hire someone to help me with my move?
A: Expertise: We specialize in the planning and management of stress-free organizing and relocations. While a move can be made be made easier with help from family and friends, many don’t have the time or expertise to manage the overwhelming process of downsizing and relocation. Adult children are often unable to assist because they live elsewhere. Senior move managers are precisely that: managers of the move. We help you plan, organize and execute your move from one home to the next.
A: Time and Money: Our expertise can save time and money and reduce emotional “wear and tear” on clients and their families.
A: Flexibility: You determine what services you want and need. While we provide our expertise and advise, you are the boss. Our job is to work with you in a way that makes your move as easy and efficient as possible. (Services are listed below).
A: Neutral Perspective: We look at things objectively. Since we are not family or friends, we can present information and ideas without emotion and in a helpful way.
A: Peace of Mind: Engaging a senor move specialist takes away uncertainty and concerns. With our guidance, you will find it easier to make important decisions, reduce your physical and emotional stress and avoid costly mistakes
A: Trusted Local Resource: Senior Move Managers are a trusted local resource because we have extensive, practical knowledge about the costs, quality and availability of other local service providers such as moving companies, realtors, house cleaners, etc. Furthermore, we never offer or take any fee for referrals.
Q: Where do I start?
A: Contact us to request a free home consultation. We’ll assign a lead move manager to meet at your convenience, listen to your concerns and explain how our services can be helpful. Together, we evaluate what help you need and assess how much work will be involved. We’ll provide a free estimate and written contract describing the services to be provided.
Q: What are your services?
A: Our services include, but are not limited to:
- Development of an overall move plan and timeline
- Customizing new home furniture layout and floor plan
- Organizing, sorting and labelling
- Managing the dispersal of extra possessions through family distribution, sale or donation
- Arranging shipments and storage
- Professionally packing and un-packing your items

Q: How much does your service cost?
A: Fees vary based on size and complexity of your move. We will work within your budget and provide a detailed written cost estimate for your approval.
Q: How quickly can you provide me with help?
A: Planning ahead is a plus, especially since most moving companies book at least 4-6 weeks in advance of an actual move. However, our job is to help make every move as easy and comfortable as possible, and we can usually help begin your move within 24 hours of an initial call.
Q: How do I find the best moving company for my needs?
A: If asked, we can recommend movers based on client needs and the movers’ reliability and track record. Clients can also conduct their own due diligence by asking those they trust for recommendations or by going to state and national consumer protection such as www.protectyourmove.com.
Q: Who pays the moving company?
A: Clients pay the moving company directly on the day of the move. If contracted to do so, we will communicate with movers before the move, oversee them on move day and make sure that everything is done safely and efficiently.
Q: Can you help someone downsize even if they are not moving?
A: Yes. Senior Move Managers® frequently assist individuals who choose to stay in their own homes, but simply require expert organizational skills to help them achieve their goal of improving and simplifying their life.
