Moving Seniors

Senior moving can often times be a difficult process. The moving experts at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® recommend staying organized and calm throughout the move and following the tips below to make it as smooth as possible. When moving a senior into a living facility, consider contacting management to find out what items can be brought, what are appropriate moving hours and if they have any tips for the move.  

Remember:

  • Start packing several weeks in advance. Pack early to avoid being overwhelmed as moving day draws near.
  • Wrap small items in colored paper. This prevents items such as knick-knacks from becoming lost or thrown out.
  • Label boxes on top and sides. Mark the top and sides of boxes as they’re packed. Make sure to label boxes containing breakable or sentimental items with “fragile.”
  • Pack all electronic equipment in original boxes. Otherwise use low-static bubble wrap when packing these items
  • Always use packing paper. When wrapping fine china and precious items, the ink from printed newsprint can bleed.
  • Sealing all boxes with packing tape. This makes it easier to stack and protect belongings.
  • Use boxes designed for the items you are packing. Use dish pack boxes for dishes, wardrobe boxes for clothing.
