Why Sammamish Seniors Should Use Senior Move Specialists

 

As a senior, managing your move to Sammamish can be a challenge. Thankfully, you can get specialized help to make the process easier. By using senior move services, you’ll have an expert by your side that can address your unique needs. If you’re wondering what senior move specialists have to offer, Ed Laine shares what you need to know.

 

Understanding Senior Moving Services

 

Senior moving services are skilled professionals with niche training, allowing them to address the unique needs of older populations who need to relocate. Typically, they facilitate access to full-service movers, ensuring you connect with a company that will handle everything from packing up your current home, unpacking at your new house, and everything in between. But you could also use them to coordinate a DIY move if you prefer.

 

However, senior moving specialists also go the extra mile. They provide support beyond the logistical part of relocating your belongings. Your senior move manager will help coordinate other activities or services that can streamline your move, giving you a single point of contact during the process.

 

Hiring the Right Senior Moving Specialist

 

When it’s time to find the right senior moving specialist for your needs, the easiest way to begin is looking for National Association of Senior & Specialty Move Managers (NASMM) members. Professionals that belong to NASMM have undergone specialized training, ensuring they’re equipped to handle the needs of seniors as they move.

 

Once you create a shortlist, do a bit more research. Learn more about the senior moving managers in your area by checking out their website and contacting them directly with questions. Additionally, head to review sites or request referrals, allowing you to gauge the customer experience before committing.

 

When it is time for quotes, make your complete needs clear. In most cases, reputable senior move managers will spend time getting to know you and what you have to accomplish, ensuring they understand exactly what’s involved. Then, they can provide you with a written quote for all of the services they’ll provide. If they aren’t willing to give a quote in writing, then you’re better off looking elsewhere for help.

 

Working with a Senior Move Manager

 

Once you find the right professional, you can start working with your senior move manager directly. They’ll help coordinate every aspect of your relocation. Along with overseeing the process and the move itself, they can assist you with downsizing your belongings. For example, they may be able to arrange for an estate sale or bring high-quality items to consignment shops, allowing you to earn a little cash from things you no longer need.

 

If you need to sell your current house, your senior move manager may be able to help prepare the property. Plus, they can coordinate directly with your realtor, simplifying the process on your end.

 

Often, the most significant role your senior move manager plays is to assist you with finding the right furniture moving companies. Typically, they’ll recommend movers with past experience handling senior moves. However, you can consider other factors along the way, ensuring you get everything you need, so make sure to use a platform like Angi to compare reviews, offerings, costs, and more.

 

Checking Moving Companies for Needed Expertise

 

While focusing on moving companies that specialize in working with seniors is a smart choice, you may also want to seek out other areas of expertise. For example, you might need a company that’s qualified for moving larger pieces of furniture if you have sizable tables, armoires, buffets, or similar items.

If you need moving services that include other specialties, you can connect with local movers in your area. Evaluate your options by reading online reviews. Then, reach out to discuss your needs and get a written quote. If the cost is more than you expect, consider looking for companies offering deals or credits. That way, you’ll find an option that works with your budget.

TESTIMONIALS

HOW THE CLIENT FEELS IS KEY

Nothing is more important to me than to help my clients achieve their goals and dreams. And, I have been pretty successful at that. Here are just a few of the things that people have said about me...

"Thank you for all you did in helping us purchase a new home in Washington state. Since we were coming from out-of-state, you made the short time we had to decide on a home much easier. You were very enjoyable to work with and very patient with our myriad questions and phone calls. You helped us accomplish exactly what we wanted and needed to do. We would certainly recommend you to anyone who could use your services and expertise. Thanks again!"

"Before beginning our review can we just say that we absolutely love our home and can't believe we were able to find such a great home in such a great neighborhood and still be within our price range!  It's fantastic!  We found Ed Laine through Dave Ramsey (creator of Financial Peace University) as a local provider. He was very proactive yet not pushy in calling us for an initial meeting and checking in with us prior to the weekends about potential listings. He did a fantastic job at answering our many questions in a clear and concise manner without making us feel foolish as first time home buyers. He was also great to suggest we provide a cover letter for the home we eventually closed on, something our out-of-state real estate conscious family members hadn't ever heard of. He was kind and respective of our thoughts and viewpoints while having a relaxed manner about him, making a could-be stressful situation quite calming.  They're fantastic at the explaining the in's and out's, the negotiating while working around budgets, the whole shabang!  We were able to close on our home without getting into a bidding war and the entire contract process was quite easy because Ed was so good at clarifying big points for us while also helping us understand what is common for this market area.  We even were able to ask Ed for help clarifying some of what our mortgage banker had told us (on a number of occasions) because he wasn't as clear and understandable as Ed!  Overall, we love Ed and would recommend him to any of our friends looking at buying a home (and we've done just that!).  If you want a positive experience buying a home whether you are a first time home buyer or a veteran - Ed's your guy"

"From my first conversation with Ed, I could tell he really listened and heard what I was saying. At our first meeting, hetook the role of the teacher and I really appreciated that, as it was important for me to learn about this process. As we began the house hunt he continued to pay attention to my feedback and was there with great probing questions to encourage me to reflect on what I was seeing and experiencing. He was transparent through everything and I really felt like we were a team as we searched to find my perfect home. As we entered into the process of making an offer and negotiating a deal, he always listened first before telling me what to do. I could tell he was skillful at what he was doing. I never felt a sense of pressure and he really wanted me to have what I wanted. After escrow closed and it was time to get the key, he went above and beyond. The property included a hot tub that I was not interested in keeping, so he posted it on Craigslist and sold it for me. After hurting my back, I was unable to drive, so he brought me my new house key and the cash for selling the hot tub. And, as an added bonus, he bought, built, and set up a housewarming gift for me. All the details are what really makes the service with Miller Laine superior. I would not hesitate for a moment to use him again or recommend him to my family."

"Ed was a magician at making the unthinkable work out in a relatively short period of time.  We give Ed our highest recommendation.  We unexpectedly found our dream home, met with Ed, quickly prepared our house to list and created a plan that many had their doubts about.  Ed and his team held countless open houses, promoted our house on various websites and social media all while negotiating us a great deal on our dream property.  It all worked out as well as could be imagined with a simultaneous close on both properties in a relatively short timeframe.  This real estate transaction was the smoothest (and most complicated) that we have ever had.  If you are looking to buy or sell give Ed a call.  He makes the unthinkable a reality."

"I have recently had the pleasure of working with Ed Laine as a buyer.  Ed's patience and thoroughness in finding me a condo was truly appreciated.  Ed was always a phone call away answering all of my questions and keeping me aware of the process from start to closing.  Ed had to work to find me a place that did not have any kind of assessment and was not in the start of a bidding war.  He exceeded my expectations.  If you are looking for a Realtor I would highly recommend Ed Laine. Thank you Ed for the wonderful experience and your hard work."

"We LOVE our new house, neighborhood and school for Logan!"

 

"We can't tell you how much we have appreciated your professionalism, honest advice, your willingness to answer our endless questions and most importantly your friendship over the years. We both felt that you listened to us through the entire process and genuinely cared about our needs above all else.  We would (and will) recommend you and your team in a heartbeat!!!! Thanks again for everything Ed, because of you we were able to start a new chapter in our life and we can tell the best is yet to come!!!!"

 

You rock, Ed!
