Here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® we understand how difficult it can be to endure changes and start over at the new place. It’s even more difficult for our parents and grandparents. Leaving the comfort of your home that you’ve lived in for 30-40 years can me emotionally challenging. That is why we specially train our employees to handle senior moves and make the moving experience as easy as possible.
No matter how far their move will be, it takes kindness, patience, and understanding of any special circumstances during the move. Just think about it, they don’t just move from a home that they lived for a long time, it’s the memories they have to leave behind, sentimental gifts they have at the house, pictures, furniture they’ve chosen together, and all the great times the family had at the house. We send our best crews to assist with the moves, movers who can not necessarily move things fast, but the ones who can explain and walk the customers through the process for better understanding and emotional comfort.
Besides moving heavy furniture and carrying it to the truck we also provide, we can help with packing. In some cases, elderly people are not able to reach certain places, or their grip is not as strong anymore to hold things. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® will provide packing boxes, wrapping paper, tape, and bubble wrap if needed to pack their valuable collection of ornate plates into as many boxes as needed. The movers also can help you sort through the items and put things aside to go to the storage. Most of the time when seniors move they have to downsize. Our movers will listen to your concerns and help you through this emotional time.
Great listening skills are important when moving seniors into a new place. During the planning process, it’s helpful to look into the new layout, so you know where the furniture will go and if it would fit. Once the movers bring it inside, you can direct them to the right spot. If the layout is somewhat similar to the layout at the old house, it’s much easier for elderly to navigate it.
Moving their whole life into a different home can take a toll on senior citizens. Our goal is to make the move stress-free and the transition to the new house smooth. Just give us a call at (850) 875-2222 and we can come out for a free at-home estimate.
