“I love this house,” Clarice said. She had lived with her husband Geoffrey in their Boston home for nearly 40 years. Now that Geoffrey has passed away, Clarice finds it difficult to keep up with the maintenance and upkeep of the home. She has decided to sell her home and move to a smaller, more manageable apartment. “It’s a bigger job than you might think, moving!”
Many Boston seniors find the task of moving from the home where they’ve spent decades of their lives into smaller spaces such as an apartment or assisted living center completely overwhelming. As your Boston mover, we’d like to share the following tips:
Trying to pack up an entire household by yourself is a huge job. Recruit family members or friends to assist you with the downsizing process. You need to determine what you’re bringing with you, what you’re giving away to family members or friends, what you’re selling, what you’re donating to charity, and what needs to go out with the trash.
Listen to Your Heart
Treasured antiques, favorite furniture, artwork and collectibles have a special place in our hearts and in our households. You’ve spent a lifetime accumulating your favorite things. There’s no reason these items can’t move with you. You will be happier and enjoy your new residence more if you bring your favorite things with you. Your Boston movers can provide custom crating services to ensure fragile items don’t get damaged in transit. A full suite of insurance options provides another level of protection during the move.
Pack High Tech Items Carefully
Today’s seniors love technology just as much as today’s teens do! When you’re moving electronic items such as televisions, laptops, home theater equipment and more, it’s essential to choose the right packing materials to provide cushioning and protection to your items during the move. Talk to your Boston movers about Foam in Place technology. This innovative expanding foam creates a protective shell around electronic items that offers the best possible protection.
