True Friends Moving Company now offers full-service packing and moving services that eliminate the need for heavy lifting and provide shrink-wrap protection – from dust and damage – for all the customer’s belongings. By providing actionable tips in advance of the planned move, True Friends helps customers enjoy a stress-free move, without the last-minute confusion and miscommunication that often accompanies relocations.
It can be challenging to help an elderly person adjust to a new environment and learn to let go of sentimental belongings. Elderly people may also have health problems, and safety concerns frequently arise during moves, further complicating matters. Relocation Stress Syndrome, also known as “transfer trauma,” is a group of symptoms that appear when a person moves from one setting to another. In older persons, it can cause a loss in physical and psychological health, which can result in serious health issues. Due to these factors, senior citizens may need extra help when downsizing, planning, and physically moving.
True Friends advises seniors and their caretakers to establish clear milestones prior to the moving date. For example, a month prior to the relocation, the utility company should be contacted for coordinating shut-off and turn-on service dates, a change of address form can be filed with USPS, and relevant service providers – such as banks and pharmacies – should be notified of the move.
The company’s services include floor padding, disassembling and reassembling the client’s furniture, disconnecting and reconnecting all appliances, and removing undesired home goods. True Friends’ mission is to make moving as simple as possible for seniors and their families. The firm has experience handling the many sensitive scenarios that can occur with senior relocation – and they offer compassionate and personalized moving services taking into account the psychological well-being of the client.
One customer commented: “I could not have been more pleased with this company. They are the best I have used in Nashville (out of three). They were the fastest I’ve used, but they were also just naturally careful. They just did it right and I had peace of mind. And they were courteous the whole time. Absolute professionals.”
