Making the decision to move is often the hardest step in the moving process for retirees. Saying goodbye to the home which they have spent a majority of their life making fond memories and raising their family is not an easy thing for anyone to face.
As the Movers Who Care®, we are experienced in handling senior moves and work hard to provide the best moving experience possible. We live by THE GRANDMA RULE®, which is to treat everyone the way you would want your grandma to be treated, a core value modeled after Founder Mary Ellen Sheets’ own mother, Grandma Eb.
Whether the customer is downsizing from their family home of 40 years, or moving into a retirement or assisted living community, our uniformed movers and drivers are professionally trained and committed to making the transition as comfortable as we possibly can.
Nearly 52 percent of all moves are for customers age 50 or older. This number is expected to increase substantially with the baby boomer population in the coming years. In 2015, 19.4 percent of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® sales were to customers 60-69 years old, while 14.3 percent were 70 years or older.
We understand that each move comes with a unique set of needs, which is why we provide tailored services for these more specialized moves. Nothing makes us more proud than hearing from happy customers whose expectations were exceeded during this stressful, and often scary, moment in their lives.
“The moving team, Robert and Mike, were amazing. They were friendly, kind, and courteous. They took great care in handling my property. Moving into a retirement community has been a difficult move for me. Their respect was much appreciated. It was a good start for the next phase in my life.” –Juanita, Downers Grove, IL
“Eric and Thomas were excellent. I’m an 88yr old senior citizen and very nervous about moving. They took special care of me and my property. Eric hugged me when I told him how nervous I was and he said they’d take good care of me. Eric even helped me walk to my front door. They made my move so easy and I thank them.” – Glenna, Hamilton West, OH
“Xavier and Cody did a great job for us. They were polite, friendly, and helpful. They were very careful with Mom and Dad’s things and placed them exactly where we wanted them in their new apartment. This was an emotional move for my parents out of their home of 62 years into a retirement village. At one point Dad told Mom, “I think we are getting special treatment!” Thanks guys for making a potentially difficult day go smoothly.” –Jeanne, Canton, OH
