Whether you are recently retired and looking for that perfect retirement or are moving to be closer to your kids, long-distance moves can be stressful for seniors. Not only will be leaving a place you've called home fore years, but you will have to let go of many sentimental objects. Hiring the right Portland long-distance movers can help ease this transition.
We at Irvington Transfer & Storage (ITS) Global Relocation Services, are experienced in Senior relocations and long-distance relocations. To help you find a company who meets all your needs, we are providing you with some tips to help you narrow down your search.
Find a Company You Can Communicate With
Issues arise during a move. From a change in scheduling to problems with moving trucks, you want to be able to effectively communicate with your movers when a problem does happen. Movers communicate with their clients in a number of ways, including:
- Video Calls
- Text Message
- Phone Calls
Leave Yourself Plenty of Time for Downsizing
Letting go of a lifetime's worth of memory-filled belongings can be overwelming. It's not a process you should try to take on in just a few weeks. Not only will the right moving company give you plenty of time to help you make these decisions, but they will also assign you a move coordinator who can help make the sorting process easier.
In some cases, a moving company may be able to help you drop off the items you choose not to take with you to a local charity.
