Senior moving can often times be a difficult process. The moving experts at Handy Dandy Moving Service recommend staying organized and calm throughout the move and following the tips below to make it as smooth as possible. When moving a senior into a living facility, consider contacting management to find out what items can be brought, what are appropriate moving hours and if they have any tips for the move.
Start packing several weeks in advance. Pack early to avoid being overwhelmed as moving day draws near.
Wrap small items in colored paper. This prevents items such as knick-knacks from becoming lost or thrown out.
Label boxes on top and sides. Mark the top and sides of boxes as they’re packed. Make sure to label boxes containing breakable or sentimental items with “fragile.”
Pack all electronic equipment in original boxes. Otherwise use low-static bubble wrap when packing these items always use packing paper. When wrapping fine china and precious items, the ink from printed newsprint can bleed.
Sealing all boxes with packing tape. This makes it easier to stack and protect belongings.
Use boxes designed for the items you are packing. Use dish pack boxes for dishes, wardrobe boxes for clothing.
