Senior Moving and Senior Move Management

Grand River Moving offers properly trained consultants to view and go over the moving needs of seniors. Our Specialists will assist in moving the senior from point A to point B, and/or packing/storage services if required.Senior Move Management may require our consultant(s) to make several trips to the seniors residence in order to help the senior(s) with decision-making, and to resolve any problems that may arise with relocating their belongings to another house, apartment, or retirement residence.

Most senior moves include having us assist with downsizing which may include having us lend a hand with the sale or auction of items for the senior. It may deal with working with a family member and/or the senior(s) when dealing with hoarding, aphrasia, and/or dimensia in which our consultants are trained on how to properly address the circumstances, and with extra care.

A Senior Move Manager will have knowledge not only in moving and packing, but dealing with any complications that may come along with senior moving.
