Moving is always a big step and especially if you've lived at one place for most of your life. That is why it is often a difficult consideration and task for the elderly to take that step towards a move. We understand this very well! Whether you are moving to a nursing home, nursing home or service flat. ScanMovers would like to make this step easier for you; therefore you can always contact our great team for all your questions and wishes. Furthermore, we have compiled a step-by-step plan below, for the perfect seniors move.
Step #1: Getting to know your new home.
A move is one big step, to also feel at home in your new home is even more important! That is why it's important to get acquainted with your new home before you move. If you have several homes in mind, it is useful to visit them first, in order to get a good idea of what you can expect from your new living-environment and home. Furthermore, your new home must also fit well with what you are physically capable of doing. It is important to look at how much space you have, whether the doors are wide enough, the bathroom and bedroom are spacious enough and whether the bathroom is on the same floor as your bedroom. Furthermore, it is useful to get to know your new living environment and to especially look if there are shops, a physiotherapist, a pharmacy, a general practitioner, etc.
With a senior move, It's often the case that you move smaller. It is often not possible to take your entire inventory with you to your new home. That is why it is important that you look closely and analyze which furniture and belongings you want to be moved to your new home and which won't. A lot of things will go to your family, howeverm things will also have to be thrown away or put in storage. This process is of course difficult and could sometimes take a lot of time, which is why we advise you to plan this well and perhaps ask your family for help. However, many moving companies have experience with this process and can also help you with this. If you found a moving company with us, you can enter this as an extra note to your moving details. Moving companies can then reach out to you to offer help where you need it. To find a suitable moving company for your needs, click here.
A move can be physically demanding and often furniture needs to be taken apart and reassembled at your new address. Therefore, it is important that if you can not do this yourself, you ask your mover for help. If you are looking for your perfect mover with us, you can indicate in our request-process whether you want help with disassembling and assembling. We recommend these services to you; since this will make your move a lot more stress-free and easier!
Then the day has finally arrived, you are moving! How long a senior move lasts can vary, but often takes about 4 hours. All movers registered on our platform are professional movers, many of whom also have a lot of experience in the field of senior moves. Your items will be professionally loaded and moved for you. How your new home will be offered, depends on whether you are moving to a care-or nursing home or to a service flat or sheltered home. In a nursing home your home is often supplied ready-to-live, a service flat or sheltered home is often delivered bare. Furthermore, a moving lift is often required for a senior move, as these homes are often located on a first or second floor. You can also indicate this requirement when you submit your moving wishes to us. According to your wishes, items that must be disassembled or assembled, will be done so, and everything will be delivered in such a way that you do not have to make much effort.
After the move, unpacking and decorating your new home will of course take place first. For this, you can ask for the help of your family or perhaps the nursing home where you have moved to. There are also specializedmoving companies in the field of senior moves, which often offer extra service at this step. And then it finally happened; you have succesfully moved and can enjoy your new home!
