Elderly Moving Services
Moving home is a stressful and emotional time for anyone, but it can be challenging if you have to move later in life. The earlier phases are often challenging because physical limitations restrict how much one may accomplish on their term; this becomes even more difficult when you get older. The packing and the process of moving to a retirement village can be very physically challenging and stressful or emotional for older people.
When you are providing support to move a senior family member or friend move, the weight of responsibilities can be daunting. You are hoping to do everything right by them so they have an easy transition into retirement living on their terms- but it’s not always possible when dealing with such personal matters!
Let our dedicated and compassionate team take care of moving as per your needs. We’re here to help you make your move easy and stress-free for everyone. Let our moving experts create an individualized plan just designed around what will work for you.
Our Premium Elderly Moving services will support you and your elderly loved ones for a smooth and stress-free transition to this next chapter in life.

Most seniors have not moved in a long time. It’s perfectly natural to feel rusty during the process and need assistance with their move! Helping your loved one move can be a challenging but rewarding experience. We’ve put together some helpful tips and resources that will show you how to navigate this process with ease!
Tip #1: Plan in advance with our senior moving and downsizing checklist
The more you plan, the less room there is for mistakes and confusion. This checklist above will give a general overview of what’s expected during your next move – use it as often as possible.
Tip #2: Downsizing some of your possessions
If you plan to move from your old family home into an apartment or a retirement village, it’s time to reduce the number of household goods you own. This can be a challenging and emotional process. Begin by categorizing what to keep it, what to give it away, dispose, sell and donate.
Tip #3: Discuss the downsizing process with your family
It’s time to have those tough conversations with your family about what they want in the future so you don’t end up holding on too long something they will throw away.
Tip #4: Ensure you have a floor plan of the new place
Knowing the measurements of your new place will help you in determining how much space is available for you. With a clear understanding of your floor plan, you can start to narrow down what will work for the new home.
Tip #5: Plan the big stuff first
When planning what you want to take with you on your next chapter, start by planning the oversized and bulkiest items like table, sofas, beds and dressers.
Tip #6: Start Packing the small and light items
Sort the smaller and light items first by yourself. They are normally the easiest to pack however they take more time as they are numerous. Don’t forget to Label each box.
Tip #7: Get some moving quotes
The cost of moving can be expensive for many people, but luckily, we have senior discounts available for you. Make sure to not only choose based on price, but also check reviews and referrals.
Tip #8: Make sure you know yourself and your limits
The stresses of moving can be overwhelming, so always ensure that you are honest with yourself about how much work you want to do handle.
Tip #9: Take advantage of technology
Take pictures of your current home setup so you can arrange things again just the way that works best for yourself, especially for TVs and other electronic connected equipment. You can use the photos to plug all the cords when setting up in your new house.
Tip #10: Take care of your mental health
Moving is hard on anyone, but it’s especially tough when you have to leave your home. Some seniors may experience Relocation Stress Syndrome which can lead them into depression and anxiety or even confusion. Make sure you get plenty of rest, manage your stress level and be aware of your feelings during the process.
Tip #11: Pack all of essential items in the same suitcase
The first 2-3 days in a new place can be challenging. You may take some days to unpack your things. Keep all essentials handy, so you can get them as you need. Pack your medicines, toiletries, keys, remotes, documents, and anything you consider essential.
