Senior Moving FAQs
WHAT IS A SENIOR MOVING MANAGER?
Your Senior Moving Manager will be your patient, organized and hands – on liaison between you, the movers, cleaners, trash removal services, etc. We move people – not just boxes… and guide clients through a journey that’s often as much about sorting through a lifetime’s worth of memories as it is about possessions.
WHAT AREAS DO YOU COVER?
We currently service most of the Greater Lehigh Valley region (Lehigh and Northampton Counties), plus Upper Bucks County.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
We charge on an hourly basis for most of our services. Since every situation is unique, the best way to provide an accurate estimate is for us to give you a free in – home consultation. This is a big step in your life, but it shouldn’t cost you a fortune. We are the cost – effective solution to you senior moving needs.
WHY HIRE A PRO? CAN’T I DO IT MYSELF?
You certainly can try to do it all yourself, but buying boxes, doing all the packing and unpacking (and properly so nothing is broken), finding someone to sell or discard of all unwanted items, hiring a cleaning service, etc. can be overwhelming. Among the most common comments we hear from our customers is “We could have never done this without you” and “Hiring your services was one of the best decisions we ever made”.
CAN YOU CUSTOMIZE A PLAN FOR ME?
We create a customized plan for everyone we work with! Your situation is unique, and your comfort and ease is our primary focus and concern. We will be with you every step of the way. (Took out the rest?)
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes, all our workers are fully insured and bonded. Our movers are also completely background checked and drug screened.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON PACKING AND MOVING DAY?
We try to staff your job sufficiently and spread out the process in order to make it as short a day as possible. We respect and understand that this can be an exhausting experience. If closings or other circumstances require a tighter spread and longer day, we will accommodate you.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
As little or as much as you desire. We can make your beds, completely unpack everything, get your kitchen and bathroom set up for you if desired.
WHAT ABOUT ARTWORK/PICTURES?
We can hang them for you.
WHAT ABOUT ELECTRONICS?
We unplug and reconnect all computers, TV’s VCR’s, lamps, and clocks if needed. If you have several TV changers, computer accessories, etc., please mark them individually.
Real plants can be moved locally, but not across state lines. Do not water any plants within 2 days of moving due to water spillage and the fact plants can uproot easier in moist soil.
WHAT ABOUT MY JEWELRY?
Always take all jewelry and cash with you separately or keep on your person.
I AM WORRIED ABOUT MY CLOSET CLOTHES GETTING WRINKLED.
The movers provide wonderful wardrobe boxes with hanger bars so that your clothes do not get wrinkled. They can be provided before move day if you would like to hang them, or the packers or movers will hang them in the boxes for you. We will also hang them in your new closets for you if you desire.
MUST WE DISPOSE OF ALL BOXES?
No. we will take all boxes and debris with us at the end of the move.
