Beaverton Real Estate: Senior move manager? Concierge Services that Reduce Stress!

By Kimberly Shute

It is time.  Whether by desire, need or emergency, a move is occurring.  No matter the reason the same feelings arise:  paralysis, stress and strain. The thought of the laborious chore of packing, deciding what to take, what to do with the unwanted items, getting rid of those items, getting rid of significant amounts of trash, arranging the movers, managing the actual move, making sure what is desired is taken and what is not is left behind, coordinating the move at the receiving location including following condo or senior community rules for moves, unpacking, getting rid of boxes and then cleaning the former location. Are you tired yet?

There is an easier way.  Hiring a Senior Move Manager.  By doing so it can save so much in time, health and dollars and result in efficiency, confidence and joy.

Each Move Manager offers a variety of services.  They may charge by the hour or by packaged pricing.  It may be a team or an individual.  It depends on the company hired and the scope of services desired.

It is recommended that when hiring a Move Manager they are a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM), which delivers education, requires members to have liability insurance and offers a code of ethics.

Who benefits from working with a Senior Move Manager?  Individuals and couples downsizing, anyone who is incapacitated and children whose parents are located in a different city or state and need to move are all wonderful candidates who would find the help worth it’s weight in gold.  There is a physical and mental cost in moving no matter the age and as we mature that cost is more significant.
