Thinking of Moving? Need to Downsize?
Just the thought of moving can be overwhelming and stressful. Years of accumulation and too much stuff, not knowing where to start…

That’s where Lori Tracey and her team of Project Managers at ORGANIZE SENIOR MOVES SARATOGA comes in. They work with seniors and their families to help make moving less stressful.

“We are not movers,” said Lori Tracey. “We will oversee the entire move with the Movers.”  Lori is a certified Senior Move manager and belongs to NASMM, a national association of Senior Move Managers Worldwide.

Organize Senior Moves Saratoga specializes in a wide range of relocation services. It is a step by step process and we make it easy!

OUR SERVICES INCLUDE:
· Floor Plans & Measuring
· Sorting & Downsizing
· Complete Packing
· Unpacking
· Set up of the New Home

STEP-BY-STEP…
The first step is to call our office and schedule a Free One Hour Consultation!

Lori will first meet with each client to assess their living situation. Upon Lori’s first meeting, she will explain the benefits of using all the services we offer. Lori always says, “You can hire us for as much or as little as possible…”, depending on your needs. Once the client is onboard, Lori will assign one of our Project Managers to work with the seniors and their families during the process. Our entire staff has compassion, knowledge and patience when completing all tasks.

The second step is creating a floor plan with measurements of the new space in order to decide how much furniture will fit. This is a very important step because clients always ask: “How much can I take…? And will it all fit...?” Once the floor plan is done we now know exactly what furniture our client will take with them on move day.

The most overwhelming and daunting task, is the third step: sorting & downsizing. We help clients make decisions on what to keep, possibly sell, donate or give away. They may also want to pass along cherished items to family members. We partner with a number of local donation sites to find a second home for items our clients no longer need or want. Some of the more treasured items can be sold.

Once the floor plan & the downsizing are finished, we can schedule a pack & move date. On pack day, (the day before the move), we send in a team to carefully pack everything up (except what the client needs overnight.)

The next day is move day. We tell our clients to go relax, find something fun to do for the day. They will get a call around 4 or 5 p.m. that day, to let them know everything is completely done. 

The BEST PART about hiring Organize Senior Moves Saratoga is on move day we put everything away, we make the bed, hook up electronics, hang the art, and remove all packing supplies that we’ve provided! All by 5 p.m. on move day.

We then reveal to the client their new home all set up and ready to enjoy senior living!

After the move, selling a family home can be emotional. Many realtors recommend us prior to putting the home on the market. Organize Senior Moves Saratoga can help with staging a home, an estate sale, and junk removal if needed.
