Retirement Home Moving
Affordable Moving Company knows how hard it is to have to call and schedule a move for your parents or grandparents to a retirement home. Retirement Home Moving is about the hardest thing we have to do as movers. Nearly 52% of all moves nationally are for people over the age of 50. This number is expected to increase with the baby boomer population over the coming years. For seniors, any move can be stressful and we understand the importance firsthand of keeping a move simple and efficient while offering moving assistance. Whether your family is downsizing or moving to a retirement home it will be hard for them to have to leave their home of 30-40 years. We are relocating experts and our friendly and courteous moving teams aim to make this transition as stress free as possible. We can tailor fit a moving regimen that will have your needs in mind. You can rest assured our fully licensed, insured, and bonded movers can get the job done with clean trucks and all proper moving equipment, whether you are moving just down the road, or across the country.

The numbers tell the story. The U.S. population aged 65 and over will jump nearly 80 percent when the Baby Boom generation retires from 2010 to 2030. By 2030, the elderly will account for one-fifth of the total U.S. population. Did you also know that Americans age 85 and above comprise the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population? Today, many families are geographically dispersed and adult children are often not able to help with the moving process due to distance, career and family obligations. For family members living far away, the barriers may be geographic. Many seniors have no surviving children, or increasingly, their children are older adults themselves. If illness or death precipitates the move, the family is likely already drained both emotionally and physically. They need help. Older adults making a transition have usually not moved in 30, 40 or 50 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. Seek the help of experienced, insured professionals and call a Senior Move Manager.
Retirement Home Moving Services
There can be several senior moving scenarios that may require packing and unpacking services, and that’s where our packing and unpacking teams come in. 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 Affordable Moving Company pack only 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 Affordable Moving Company our team is experienced and ready for challenging relocations and specializes in moves that may be a little bit more sensitive and emotional. 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.

All our moving services come with the following options:
- Packing/Unpacking. Whether you need everything packed or just the most fragile items, most long-distance moving companies offer the services you need. In addition, companies will likely provide unpacking services once you arrive at your new home for an extra fee. Hiring movers to unpack will mean your home will be set up and live-in ready in a day rather than weeks or months.
- Assembly/Disassembly. Need something large and bulky – including waterbeds, swing sets, furniture, etc. – disassembled at your current home and put back together at the new place? Ask your moving company if it provides services that do just that.
- Short-term and long-term storage. Are you arriving at your destination city before your new home or apartment will be move-in ready? Then ask your moving company if it provides short-term storage for your belongings while you wait. Or maybe you’re downsizing and need a more permanent storage solution. If that’s the case, many long-distance moving companies have facilities for rent or at least have connections with reputable storage facilities in the area.
- Custom crating. Certain belongings just won’t fit in a traditional box, whether because it’s too large, fragile, or odd-shaped. That’s where custom crating comes in. Find a moving company that can offer crating services for things like framed artwork, sculptures, or electronic equipment.
