Moving can be an inconvenience and stressor for even the hardiest do-it-yourselfers, especially when the realization hits that everything in your current home needs to be packed and moved. Our clients often express, “How did I accumulate so much stuff?!” And that’s only the beginning of the moving journey– there are the closets to clean, garages/basements to clear out, items to donate or discard, boxes and supplies to purchase, and a multitude of other tasks that must be done. The To-Do list can seem endless.
Instead of taking on the burden of handling a downsizing move yourself or asking on your adult children to do it, here are five ways a professional move manager such as Harmony Senior Relocation Services can help.
A professional relocation service already has a tried and true plan in place. With hundreds of successful moves as experience, they know the most efficient way to plan, prepare, pack and unpack a household. They will also help you determine what furniture and items will fit best in the new residence and give you recommendations on letting go of extra items in a way that works best for you. Too often, downsizing clients still take too much stuff to their smaller home. This makes for crowded bedrooms/living rooms and cluttered closets that don’t feel comfortable or functional.
Why keep making runs to Lowes for boxes & paper, when a relocation service can conveniently deliver all the necessary supplies. Plus, they will remember to bring an ample supply of Ziploc bags and the proper packing materials for fragile items! There’s a right way and a wrong way to pack your fragile china and figurines, let the professionals at Harmony take care of your special items.
Free Up Your Mind
Let the professionals handle all the headaches and hassles surrounding a downsizing move. On pack day and move day, Harmony takes care of everything, leaving you free to step away the “chaos” and take care of other tasks, such as saying good-bye to neighbors and making sure you keep on track with your medications.
Imagine opening the door to your new home to find your furniture perfectly in place, the coffee maker ready to go and your bed freshly made. How much more relaxing would this be than being faced with towers of boxes and living out of boxes for the next 2-3 weeks. When working with a professional relocation service, they willll have your home organized, functional, and looking lovely at the end of move day. It is all part of the unpacking expertise that a relocation service, like Harmony, provides.
At Harmony, we love to see the smiles on our clients’ faces as they feel ‘at home’ in their new house right from the start.
