Why Hire a Senior Move Manager?

Many of our clients wonder why hire a senior move manager and specifically, what services are offered.  ShipShape Organize is proud to be a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) and the National Association of Productivity Organizers (NAPO).  When it comes to downsizing and moving to a smaller location or a retirement community, it can be a daunting task.  Many clients can’t do it themselves and they don’t want to impose on their family.  That’s where we come in.  The NASMM website sums it up perfectly:

  • “NASMM members specialize in helping older adults and their families with the daunting process of downsizing and moving to a new residence.
  • NASMM members are experienced professionals, bound by a pledge of integrity, committed to safety and ethics, and dedicated to continuing professional development.
  • NASMM members will move you expertly, compassionately, and affordably.”

“Senior Move Management is the profession that assists older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation and/or “aging in place.”  Senior Move Managers┬« require a profound commitment to connecting with older adults and a desire to perform meaningful work.”

  • Developing an overall move or “age in place” plan
