FAQ - Seniors in Transition
Often times we put off until the last minute the things we dread doing the most. Don’t make this one of those times! Sorting, packing, and unpacking, even on a good day in your younger years, was no fun. Now it is physically and emotionally taxing to sort, box, and dispose of a lifetime of accumulation.

Why should I use a senior move manager?
Senior Move Management is a rapidly growing industry. Any time you invite a service provider into your home, you want to make sure they run their business like a business. Are they licensed, bonded, and insured? Will they be in uniform and behave with professional demeanor?
Guardian Angel - Senior Assistance Services is a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM). Our team is trained in packing and unpacking while delivering excellent customer service. We are licensed, insured, and bonded. We also work with licensed and bonded moving companies to make your move as safe and pain-free as it can be!

I live across the country from my parents.
Do I need to be at their home during the moving process?
Careers, family, geography are just a few of the numerous demands that may prevent you from being in the place you want to be: helping Mom and Dad with their move. Take comfort in knowing it is not only your physical presence but also your emotional support that can help in this time of transition. We at Guardian Angel - Senior Assistance Services know you are devoted to supporting their well-being.
We work closely with siblings, sons, and daughters, and even grandchildren, via email, phone or fax to get your loved ones moved while adhering to the wishes of family members who cannot be physically present. We are prepared to handle sensitive issues that may arise and treat everything with complete confidentiality.
If you're helping sort through my important paperwork, are you background checked?
Yes, we have had national background checks performed on all of our employees.
Do you help with floor planning?
Yes, we will obtain or create the floor plan, taking actual detailed measurements of your new home. We will measure all the pieces of furniture you wish to move and help you design the space. We will help you determine what will safely and comfortably fit in your space as well.
How do I disperse the things I don't want
There are many options to either sell or donate your items. We can assist by holding estate or garage sales, coordinate donation drop-off or pickup, list your items on Ebay or FB Marketplace, or consign your items.
We can also help coordinate shipments of your items to friends, family, or your next destination.
What is the timeline for a "typical" move?
A number of things can factor into the amount of time required to move. Therefore, it is difficult to offer a cookie cutter response to this question. With that said, we will take you from the initial consultation onto tagging, sorting and downsizing, packing and moving, and finally onto unpacking and getting you setup in your new home. Planning ahead and using our well-organized methods will make your transition as seamless as possible.
