How to Move with Confidence

When to enlist help from senior moving experts

Colleen Rosica, Personal Moving Consultant
June 17, 2019

Moving can feel like an overwhelming task, especially if you haven't done it in a number of years. How can you feel confident that you're taking the right steps, hiring the right professionals, and checking all the right boxes?

Start by finding yourself a great professional partner—someone with the experience and know-how to walk you through the process. Someone like your Erickson Senior Living personal moving consultant.

Always on the move: More than 100 moves a year

Fortunately, moving is a rare occasion for most of us. That's why it's so important to work with an expert who has hundreds of moves under their belt, not just one or two.  

As the personal moving consultant at Ann's Choice, the Erickson Senior Living community in Bucks County, Pa., I work with 100-plus people just like you each year—and I've been doing it for 11 years. My fellow Erickson Senior Living personal moving consultants and I can help with just about every aspect of your move. We have the knowledge and the resources to make your experience as stress-free as possible. 

For example, as a licensed real estate agent in Pennsylvania, I'm able to share my insights about the local real estate market and provide my clients with staging tips to prepare their houses for sale. I also work one-on-one with my clients to create a customized floor plan, so they know exactly what will fit in their apartment home. 

Senior moving experts you can trust

If there's a task my fellow personal moving consultants and I can't tackle on our own, we'll recommend an expert who can. Each personal moving consultant has a list of handpicked real estate agents, downsizers, moving companies, and other preferred professionals. We only work with the most trusted and reputable experts in the field, so you can feel confident you'll get the best service possible. 

Moving is one of the biggest decisions you can make. It's important to have the best people behind you. 

Erickson Senior Living offers less stress and more solutions

Ultimately, don't let your worries get in the way of a great move. Talk to your personal moving consultant about the things that concern you. What feels like an overwhelming problem to you may be a simple fix for a seasoned professional. 

I often recall a client who had so much stuff to downsize that he didn't know where to start. Over the years, his garage and basement had become storage bins for all his belongings. He estimated it would take him two years to go through it all. Fortunately, I put him in touch with my preferred downsizing and organizing professionals, who cleaned out the clutter much faster than he ever imagined. In the process, they even identified several pieces of valuable pottery, which they sold for him!

As a result, my client was able to move much sooner than he imagined—all because he enlisted help from the moving experts.
