Separation Anxiety? Insight to the Auto Shipping Process

Posted by Tara on

To help you understand the auto-shipping process we have gathered information about what you can expect during your car’s trip to a new location.

After scheduling to ship your car and deciding between enclosed trailer shipping (which will protect your car from weather and other dangers) and an open trailer, you should know that many cities have restrictions that prohibit large trucks from driving into some residential areas. Transport trucks are extremely large and they need a lot of room to maneuver and turn around. Normally, car-carriers will pick up your vehicle and drop off as close to your home as possible, but the truck driver may ask you to meet at a local grocery store, mall, or other large parking area if your county or town has vehicle restrictions.

Tips to Make Your Retirement Move A Success

Posted by Tara on

Retirement moves involve quite a bit of work. You can’t physically do as much as you used to, and if you’re downsizing or moving far away it entails a lot of planning, sorting, and packing. Sometimes the only way to manage your retirement move is to ask for help!

Here are some foolproof ways to make your move a success—

  • Hire a Senior Move Manager: Senior Move Managers will help you through the entire move process by orchestrating movers, yard sales, getting settled in your new residence, and other moving tasks that often get overlooked. The National Association of Senior Move Managers is a great resource to learn more about Move Managers.
  • Find a reputable mover: When hiring a mover for senior or baby boomer moves, look up online reviews, contact the Better Business Bureau, ask for referrals, and make sure that the mover comes to your home to give an in-person estimate. Many movers will pack up your house for you and unpack it if you’re willing to pay a little more. Read More
