Moving can be a very difficult time emotionally, especially for seniors or older adults who have lived in the same home for an extended amount of time.
If you or a senior friend of yours has recently made the decision to move, it’s important to find a moving company who understands the emotional complications of what you’re going through and can help you relocate as easily as possible.
As one of the best senior moving services in Ballard, we offer quality senior moving assistance for older adults looking to downsize or relocate to a condo or retirement community. Our team of professional movers have worked with many seniors over the years and can guarantee we will provide you a comfortable, safe, and efficient moving experience so you can settle comfortably into your new home and community.
Our Senior Moving Management Staff
We approach each move with special sensitivity to the needs of the moving senior and their families. We know how difficult it can be to relocate after so many years to an unfamiliar neighborhood or retirement community, and are here to support you during the process. Our senior moving assistance staff are trained to support and assist throughout the relocation process.
Before the move, our management staff will have a meeting with you and your family to work out the details of the relocation process. We will discuss cost, handling of valuable items, timeline, and transportation. Our team of professional senior assistance movers are flexible to the needs of our clients and promise to do our best to make your moving experience as comfortable as possible.
Over the years we have assisted many seniors through the moving process and have plenty of experience handling family heirlooms and valuables. We promise to handle your valuables with the utmost care and keep you informed during the packing and moving process to spare you any anxiety you might have about transporting your heirlooms.
Let’s talk about our basic moving plan for seniors in the Ballard area, which includes two movers and one truck.
Our senior moving professionals will handle all the details such as loading, driving, and unloading the moving truck. We will also provide all the equipment necessary for the relocation process—moving pads, dollies, assembly toolkit (for assembling and disassembling any furniture that may need it). Besides that, we will also provide protection for your carpet and hardwood flooring, or any doorways, staircases, or banisters that might be at risk of getting damaged by large furniture passing through.
Labor-Only Moving Services For Seniors
If you prefer to provide your own transportation for moving your belongings, On The Go Moving also offers a labor-only moving plan. The labor-only moving plan is convenient for you if you need to load/unload heavy belongings or need to move items between the first and second floor of your new Ballard home.
Our labor-only moving service includes two movers at the cost of $105 per hour. This hourly rate increases by $40 per additional mover requested. We recommend this plan to seniors who have family or friends with large trucks who wish to do the transportation themselves but still need manual labor help moving and disassembling large pieces of furniture.
Senior Moving Packing Service
On The Go Moving offers professional packing services to assist seniors. We can provide our packing services on the day of your move or over the course of several days leading up to the move (depending on the number of items that need packing). Our staff is trained to pack carefully and efficiently to keep your belongings safe during transportation and loading/unloading.
If you need packing materials, we offer them at an additional charge. This, of course, will be discussed with you before we begin packing (during our consultation) so you can be sure that you won’t have any surprise fees waiting for you when your move is done.
Our packing service for seniors starts at a rate of $105 per hour for two packers. This rate increases $40 per hour for each additional packer you wish to add.
Supplemental Valuation Coverages:
We offer three types of supplemental valuation insurance for your items:
Basic Value Protection: This insurance comes free of charge, with compensation at .60 per pound for a damaged item.
Replacement Cost Coverage with $300 Deductible: The cost of this insurance is $1.15 per $100.00 of value for the entire shipment.
Replacement Value Protection: The cost of this insurance is $1.40 per $100.00 of value for the entire shipment.
Any time you choose to work with On The Go Moving you are automatically provided the Basic Value Protection plan. If you are moving items that are of great value to yourself and would like an increased level of protection, we will be more than happy to provide you with that.
You can learn more about our valuation coverages by speaking with one of our moving staff.
