While the chaos of moving day may be exciting for a young couple buying their first home or renting their first apartment, an older adult may feel sad or anxious as they say good-bye to the family home. For this senior, relocation often represents a profound loss of control. That’s why it’s imperative to make moving day — and preparing for it — as stress-free as possible.
Abba and Sons Moving understands the anxiety and stress that comes along with leaving the place you’ve called home for so many years. We specialize in moving seniors in and out of assisted living facilities and take special care to make the transition as painless as possible.
The key to an exceptionally smooth move is to do as much preparation as possible as far in advance as possible without disrupting their life too much. To avoid complete chaos on moving day itself be prepared to handle emotional baggage as well as the boxes the movers will be hauling.
Make sure to ask permission before making any decisions because allowing them to say where and how things should go helps them feel more in control.
A lot of people feel a good mover is a mover who shows up on time and doesn’t break anything. There is a bit more to it when dealing with seniors. Abba and Sons knows to leave a chair behind so they have something to sit on even as the truck pulls out, and to unpack a chair first at the other end, and to be patient with older folks who may take their time answering questions and making decisions.
We take your move personally and treat all our customers like family. Abba and Sons Moving knows how to handle difficult moves and specializes in exceeding expectations. Give us a call today at (520) 444-3133 and allow the experts to handle all of your moving needs.
