Senior Move Managers & Moving Companies
The relationship between Senior Move Managers and a full service moving company is a symbiotic one. Both parties are dependent on one another and receive mutual benefits by working with each other. The first step in grasping the relationship between a Senior Move Manager and a van line like Wheaton is to have a good understanding of who a Senior Move Manager is and what exactly they do.
Senior Move Managers
The aging process can be a scary and intimidating one. Oftentimes aging can include a move to a different and unfamiliar home. This relocation can consist of organizing, sorting and downsizing a home, moving – sometimes only a few miles and sometimes completely cross-country – and then unpacking and safely setting up a new home. It’s a lot of work, and when an emotional aspect is added in, it can be just plain daunting.
This is where a Senior Move Manager steps in. These managers are located in every state as well as parts of Canada, so no matter where you or your loved one lives or is planning to live, help is at your fingertips. The National Association of Senior Move Managers, or NASMM, provides a list of these managers according to state.
What do they do?
Think about all the logistics that go along with moving: finding a new home, packing, organizing, arranging transportation, choosing a professional moving compan, getting moving vans, unpacking… the list goes on and on.
The Senior Move Manager steps in during this stressful time and develops a plan to tackle all of these tasks. Some seniors might be moving long distances, others just around the block and for others, their plan is to “age in place” meaning they aren’t planning on leaving their home at all. A Senior Move Manager knows exactly how to manage this entire spectrum. Not only are the Managers experts in their field, but they are also compassionate and kind, understanding that this is often a rough and emotional transition for everyone involved.
