What is a Senior Move Manager?
  • Senior Move Managers provide a multi-faceted approach to the move process: from space planning in the beginning to post-move support and advocacy.
  • Senior Move Managers minimize the chaos and stress associated with moving by addressing all aspects of the move process. They are responsible for creating and executing a seamless action plan, customized to the client’s wishes.
  • Actually, some but not all Senior Move Managers are also movers. Those providers that are not movers will work closely with a reputable local moving company to complete that aspect of the job.
  • With the gentle and expert guidance of an experienced Senior Move Manager, older adults and families make the key decisions without the emotional and physical distress that can follow. As a result, they avoid the costly mistakes and remorse that often accompany such major lifestyle transitions.
  • Senior Move Managers do so much more than simply sort, settle, and move boxes; with loads of energy, enthusiasm and experience, Senior Move Managers take the worry (and work!) out of the move process. The client’s job is to simply enjoy his or her new living arrangement.
Why Hire a Senior Move manager?
  • Hiring a move manager brings access to a host of proven resources that have been pre-screened for the best quality and best pricing.
  • To bring top dollar by preparing and staging your home for sale.
  • Save frustration by developing a process that is organized and manageable.
  • Compassionately work through the “letting go” process when “rightsizing”.
  • Your assigned and dedicated move team will help to make your move smooth and stress free.

What others say about us

Tim has helped us with more than one move, his attention to detail, organization and professionalism made our moves much easier than we could ever accomplish. The moves would have been overwhelming for us and would have cost us more money because I would have needed to take time off from my job. We will keep using A Modified Life for any future move.

Tim was very helpful with transitioning my mother from a large house to a small apartment. He helped stage the house for resale, gave me money saving ideas and even offered design tips. He also managed moving very expensive furniture across the country without a hitch. Everything worked out perfectly.
