Senior Relocation Services with Mentors Moving & Storage

Are you planning to downsize or help an aging loved one relocate to a new home or facility? Senior moves are among the most challenging. Along with physically moving belongings, these moves often require full-service senior movers to help with packing and unloading, decluttering, and storage. There may be any number of circumstances prompting the relocation from retirement and a desire to be closer to family or certain amenities to health and financial concerns. If you’re relocating to a retirement community, apartment, or long-term care facility, count on Mentors Moving & Storage to assist through every stage of the relocation.

In today’s world, “senior” is a flexible term that can refer to anyone who has retired from the workforce without a specific age limit. Many senior living communities begin accepting adults aged 55 and older while Medicare considers someone a senior at the age of 65. Whether you’re young at heart and interested in moving near fun amenities or a job or you’re helping a loved one who can no longer live on their own, the award-winning senior movers at Mentors Moving & Storage are standing by to help with service in the Bakersfield, San Luis Obispo, Santa Rosa, and Phoenix metro areas.

Why Do Seniors Use Senior Moving Companies?

While older adults have many of the same reasons for moving as the younger generation, including employment and a better quality of life, many seniors have unique reasons for relocating. One of the biggest reasons seniors turn to affordable senior movers in Bakersfield, San Luis Obispo, Phoenix, Santa Rosa and surrounding areas is to be closer to their family and friends. Many also choose to relocate for health reasons to be closer to quality care or for a better climate or activities in retirement.

Some seniors simply move into a comparable home in a new area, but most older adults move to downsize or to move into a community for seniors. Our senior moving company helps seniors relocate to more than one dozen of the area’s popular retirement or 55+ communities like Pacifica Senior Living Bakersfield and Canyon Hills Senior Housing in Bakersfield. We also serve communities of Phoenix, Santa Rosa, and San Luis Obispo. Older adults who are no longer able to live alone may also need professional Bakersfield senior movers to move in with family or receive a higher level of care at an assisted living facility or long-term care facility.

Considerations When Using Senior Movers

Senior moves are among the most challenging because they aren’t just about moving belongings. For many older adults and family members, relocating is an extremely emotional and difficult experience that may be prompted by financial or health concerns. Many seniors have been living in their home for 20 years or longer and face an overwhelming loss of security and familiarity. Downsizing to a smaller home or moving into assisted living or a nursing home also means parting with many items — a challenge for many people who have emotional attachments to their belongings. Compassionate senior movers help make this difficult process easier and safer for seniors and their family members. For older adults who aren’t ready to part with their belongings, senior moving and storage can also be a solution to put off this difficult step for a later time.

Another challenge seniors face when moving is a lack of available help from family and an inability to manage their own relocation. In many cases, family members live too far away to actively help with the move or have too much happening in their own lives. Hiring a trustworthy senior moving company helps family members rest easy knowing their aging relatives will be taken care of through every stage of their transition, including help with packing, loading and unloading, and storage.

Best Reasons to Hire Senior Movers in Phoenix, AZ & California

Senior moving companies in Phoenix, Bakersfield, Santa Rosa, San Luis Obispo and surrounding areas don’t just make relocating easier, less stressful, and less time-consuming; experienced movers also offer the specific services older adults need for a safe and efficient relocation.

While some seniors are capable of doing a lot during their move, including decluttering and packing, many need help with many of the tasks associated with relocating. For many, the overwhelming emotional toll of relocating is already enough to handle without considering aspects like organizing and planning. An important reason to choose senior movers is to get help with absolutely every aspect of the move.

A senior moving company in Phoenix or Bakersfield can work with a professional senior move manager licensed by the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM). A senior move manager can help a loved one downsize in an organized manner and help seniors maintain more control over the experience. A move manager helps eliminate stress during the process by taking care of everything from decluttering and organizing to planning and creating floor plans. Affordable senior movers in San Luis Obispo, Bakersfield, and Santa Rosa take over the rest with tailored moving services that can include:

  • Storage solutions when downsizing
  • Decluttering, including assisting with donations and getting rid of belongings
  • Packing and unpacking
  • Furniture disassembly and reassembly in the senior’s home

Relocating can be a stressful transition for anyone, but for seniors, it can be especially emotional and difficult. A dependable senior moving company can be an invaluable partner in making the transition as easy and safe as possible.

Cost to Hire Senior Movers in Bakersfield, San Luis Obispo, Santa Rosa & Phoenix

Want to hire the best senior moving company in Phoenix, Bakersfield, or San Luis Obispo for a loved one or yourself? One of your first concerns is likely the cost to hire a senior moving company. As with other residential moves, your price will depend on a variety of factors.

Senior moving company rates are generally flat rate for local senior moves with packing materials charged separately. When you request a free senior movers quote, you will need to discuss details of your move for an accurate quote. Your cost will depend on:

  • The number of movers you need based on the size of the home and level of service
  • The level of senior moving service you need, such as packing/unpacking, storage, and furniture disassembly/assembly
  • The distance you’re moving
  • Accessibility of the current and new home

Mentors Moving & Storage is proud to be an affordable senior moving company with transparent pricing and fair moving rates. Contact us today to discuss rates and receive a free estimate on your move!

How to Choose the Best Senior Moving Company

Senior moves come with many unique challenges that typically aren’t seen with other residential moves. Most seniors need full-service senior movers, for example, and a combination of affordable rates and dependability. As you prepare to hire a senior moving company, we recommend taking the following precautions to choose the right movers for yourself or your loved one.

  • Choose a company with specific experience performing senior moves.
  • Know how much help you need with the move and what you can do yourself and choose movers who offer the level of service you need.
  • Read senior moving company reviews on Yelp and Google to see what past customers have to say.
  • Avoid moving scams targeting seniors by verifying the company’s credentials including their license and insurance. Avoid movers asking for a large upfront deposit.
  • Check the company’s track record. How long have they been in business? What’s their claims rate? How many moves do they perform each year?

At Mentors Moving & Storage, we’re proud of our 14+ year track record and 5-star moving company reviews. Phoenix’s and Bakersfield’s best senior movers at Mentors Moving & Storage complete a 160-hour training program and background check process before they get started and perform over 1,200 moves per year, including hundreds of senior moves in the Bakersfield area. Count on our full-service senior movers for great customer care, tailored services, and honest pricing.
