Frequently Asked Questions About Senior Moves

Here are some of the common questions people ask us about Gentle Transitions Senior Move Management Services...

How do I get ready for my move?

Your Gentle Transitions Move Manager will make a move plan with you, outlining each step to be taken.

How far in advance do we need to begin the process?

It is never too soon to get a complimentary assessment, which can ease your worries. It depends on what needs to be done prior to the move. An estate sale can take a month or more to arrange. Everyone’s needs are different, so it is best to contact us as soon as you decide to make a move.

Can I pack some of my own things?

Absolutely. Remember, however, that boxes get stacked in the moving truck, so a good packing job with the right supplies is important. You are responsible for the items in the boxes you pack.

I have lived in my home (or apartment) for years. How do I decide what to bring?

Your Gentle Transitions Senior Relocation Move Manager can help lay out your new floor plan, measuring the rooms and working with you to decide what items you want and what will realistically fit in your new home.

I need to downsize. Can you help me?

Our Move Managers are trained to become valued resources for downsizing.  Whether you need resources for estate sale planners, appraisers, consignment shops, charitable organizations, online sales, we are happy to help. 

Are you a moving company?

Our Senior Relocation Specialists plan, coordinate, and manage all aspects of your move. As part of that service, we hire only the best in moving companies to transport your cherished belongings.

How much do you charge?

Each move is unique and the amount of assistance that each client would like varies.  As a result, since our inception, we have always offered a complimentary visit where we provide an estimate of costs for each individual's circumstances.  

I am moving to (or from) another state. Can you help me?

Yes. We plan and pack (or unpack) for long-distance moves. We also can assist in locating a similar service on the other end.

I am not a senior. May I use your moving services?

Absolutely! We help families of all ages who want or need someone to assist in the moving and re-settling process.
