In the world of home moving, it’s often a situation that can create a lot of stress and anxiety, and this is especially true when it comes to moving elderly citizens.
Often times when seniors move, it’s from a home that has belonged to them for a large chunk of their life, full of memories, belongings, and family that has lived or visited their home over the years. Saying goodbye to these memories can be extremely difficult, and it’s important to handle these situations with care.
As the “Movers Who Care®”, we have over 30 years of experience with moving seniors, and go above and beyond to make sure it’s an enjoyable process for them as they make the next transition in their lives. One of our core values is THE GRANDMA RULE®, which is to treat every customer the way you would want your grandmother to be treated.
“With THE GRANDMA RULE®, we have a special place in our heart for moving seniors,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® CEO Jeff Wesley. “We pride ourselves on Moving People Forward®, and we take extra care to ensure every move we make is a lasting memory. Moving is stressful, and we are here to make sure it is an exceptional experience for our seniors and that they are taken care of.”
According to our numbers, nearly 48 percent of all moves we complete are for customers age 50 or older. With the baby boomer population still going strong, this number is expected to increase.
With over 350 plus locations across the country and with new long-distance moving options like Value Flex®, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is able to get senior citizens to their ideal destination with comfort and ease. According to an article in TIME, California, Texas, Florida, Arizona, North Carolina, and Virginia the top states seeing retiree moves, and all of these states feature multiple TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations.

“TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® helped my father move from one retirement community to another in a different city. They were careful with dad’s things, which was very important to him. They were also very kind and respectful to all of the other residents of both communities, which is even more important. I would use them again.” – Deb, Omaha, NE
“My family has often used TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® and with this latest move, as usual, the office staff was understanding, pleasant, and very efficient. The three movers took better care of my aging mother’s furniture than it probably deserved! This was a tough move for the family, as we were cleaning out my mother’s retirement apartment for her move to a nursing facility. The team both in office and in the move was compassionate and efficient.” – Patti, St. Louis, MO
“The two men who handled my mother’s move into a retirement community could not have been nicer, more helpful, or more professional. I would absolutely request this same team of guys again should we ever have the need. It felt like we were being moved by friends.” – Joyce, Montgomery County, TX
“If there was a beyond excellent box, I would have checked that. AJ and Matt were so very kind as they moved my parents out of their home to a retirement community.” – Pat, Jackson, MI
