Moving with seniors

Nationally, nearly 52% of all moves are for people over the age of 50 and this number is expected to increase substantially with the baby boomer population over the coming years. For seniors, any move can be stressful and we understand the importance firsthand of keeping a move simple and efficient while offering moving assistance.

We’re experts in managing relocation stress — whether it’s downsizing from a home of 30 years, to making the transition to a retirement community — our friendly and courteous teams provide tailored services to make your senior moving experience a positive one.

You can rest assured our fully licensed, insured, and bonded movers can get the job done with clean trucks and all proper moving equipment, whether you are moving just down the road, or across the country. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® also offers packing and unpacking services so all you need to relocate is yourself.

"Our crew couldn't have been nicer, they were careful with our things and very polite. We were very pleased. Thank you for your help, moving from a home of 40 years to a senior facility is very stressful, your staff made it much easier. We appreciate it very much."

"They took very good care of belongings, did not fool around, worked hard, had good attitudes with my questions, etc. Enjoyed having them. This was very stressful for us, we are senior citizens, but they put us very much at ease, put pieces where we wanted them in room, asked if we were satisfied, very nice young men."

"You saved our bacon. As seniors, we are unable to lift like we once were able to, and the crew handled it so we didn't have to. Merely packing the stuff was stressful, but these guys were so efficient that they saved us time and money. 10 stars for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. Highly recommend. Give those guys a raise! J and R"

Let us relieve your packing and unpacking stress

There can be several senior moving scenarios that may require packing and unpacking services, and that’s where our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® packing and unpacking teams come in.

Whether you’re looking to get your parents moved from their home into a retirement or assisted living community and aren’t sure where to start, or you’re unable to pack the items in your home yourself, our trained packing professionals can do as little or as much packing as you need help with. Many customers find it helpful to have TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® pack only the fragile items or certain rooms, and they handle the rest. Just as we tailor your move, we can customize our packing services to fit your individual needs.

Whatever the situation, we’ll get the job done

We understand seniors often deal with a unique set of needs and concerns. Many of our senior customers struggle with grief from leaving their long-time family home, fear of losing sentimental belongings, or anxiety of facing unknown physical challenges.

At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, we’re experienced in tackling challenging relocations and specialize in moves that may be a little bit more sensitive and emotional. These moves include arranging moving and packing services with adult children looking to move their senior parent(s), downsizing from a large family home, moving belongings from a cottage to primary residence, or even moving and storing items during a home remodel.

Knowing there are so many moving situations that can often be trying times for our customers, a beloved company core value we take to heart is THE GRANDMA RULE® — to treat everyone the way you would want your grandma to be treated. This value, which was modeled after Founder Mary Ellen Sheets’ own mother, Grandma Eb, is one that resonates with all team members across the country.
