How to choose the best moving services for seniors?

SatJune 3, 2023

Moving is never an easy task. It’s mentally and physically exhausting. Just imagine what a mountain a move can be for an elderly person preparing to move. Many elderly people are well looked after by their children and grandchildren, who can lend a helping hand. But others, unfortunately, may be on their own and have to organize everything themselves. We also know that Montreal presents some major challenges when it comes to moving, whether it’s older apartments with dangerous staircases or difficulty parking a truck. Seniors absolutely must call on professional moving services. But how do you choose the right moving service? We’ll help you sort it all out by advising you on how to choose a moving service for seniors in Montreal.

Choosing a professional moving company

When choosing a moving service for seniors, as with any move, you need to make sure you choose a moving company you can trust. Make sure you choose a company with well-equipped trucks and a well-trained team, not a couple of cash-only men who’ve been found who knows where. It’s important to choose a company that’s well insured. They will take good care of your property, because they know that if they repeatedly damage their customers’ property and have to keep making claims, their insurance premiums will go up. It’ll be such a shame if that piece of antique furniture gets damaged in transit! What’s more, with a serious company, you avoid the problems of late or no-show movers, or movers who ask for much more money than expected and try to rip you off.

Choosing a moving service that meets your needs

Every move has its own specific needs. Are you staying in the city or moving to the suburbs? Are you making a long-distance move? If so, it’s essential to find a company with experience in this type of move. They’ll know how to respond to unforeseen circumstances, and will be familiar with the regular hurdles involved in this kind of move.

When it comes to your belongings, you also need to make sure that the company has everything you need to move everything. We all know that antique and old furniture is much heavier than the modern furniture we find at IKEA. To take good care of your furniture, you need to make sure that the moving company has the necessary equipment to meet your expectations. If the company offers piano moving services, you can rest assured that they will be able to transport all the furniture, as pianos are generally the heaviest piece of furniture to move.

Do you need to move large pieces of furniture over a balcony? Find a moving company that offers palleting services, a way of moving furniture with a pulley system that avoids disassembling certain pieces of furniture or simply having to leave them in the residence.

Choose a mover that offers complete moving services

For the elderly, it’s best to choose a company that offers complete moving services. These services allow the mover to do nothing at all, to move without lifting a finger. The movers will pack and unpack boxes, disassemble and reassemble furniture as required, and place all the furniture in the new home. They’ll be settled in immediately, and the move will be over quickly. We know that the simplest tasks can be exhausting as we age. Packing boxes takes a lot of time and energy, and we know it’s not for everyone. It’s important to choose a mover who offers his services.
We all know an elderly person who is too stubborn to let others do the work, and who risks tiring themselves out by taking part in the move too much. Simplify their task by hiring professional movers who can take care of them.

Choosing a mover that offers discounted moves for seniors
