Benefits of Senior Relocation Services
At Island Transitions, we provide a wide array of valuable senior relocation services for seniors across Long Island. Here are a few benefits provided by our senior move manager:
- Packing: Once you have selected a place to move, start the process of packing what you want to keep. It’s a good idea to give yourself plenty of time. Consider starting 4 weeks ahead of your move. Remember to label each box and maintain a numbered inventory list of the boxes and their contents. For example, Den- Travel & History Books. Pack books only in small boxes, 1.5 cubic ft., not in medium sized, 3.0 cubic ft. boxes. Your mover will thank you. Take valuable items like jewelry, checkbooks, cash and prescriptions with you. Don't pack them for the moving truck. Our senior relocation services will help you organize and prepare your valuables prior to the actual moving day.
- Materials: Small fragile items need proper protection when packing so that they can withstand the move in a truck. Purchase packing paper without print on it and rolls of 1/4 inch bubble wrap. Place crunched up paper as a cushion in the bottom of the boxes to act as a shock absorber for your treasures.
- Working with Furniture and Moving Companies: Create a space plan for each room of your new home. Measure the length of each wall and note the location of the doors and windows along with the cable connection, TV and telephone jacks. Measure each piece of furniture that you want to take and place those pieces onto your drawing. Leave proper space to walk around each piece and away from door openings. When you know what you want to take, what can fit and when you want to move, call a licensed and insured moving company. Ask for references and call them to verify their experience with the mover you choose.
- Unpacking: Although this may seem like a monumental task, it should be an easier one to accomplish now that your possessions have been downsized. Plus, if the time was taken to organize your things into each box, the unpacking will actually go rather quickly and efficiently. The effort put forth in the previous weeks and months will have paid off greatly at this point.
