Brookline Transportation — a Mayflower Van Lines agent specializing in commercial, lab, medical, science and residential moves — recently added a senior living division to its residential and commercial moving services. The new division will have staff and resources specific to moving seniors.
“Senior relocating covers a lot of turf. Some could be downsizing. Others might be purchasing a second home. The level of participation the senior will have will vary. Some may need more help than others—packing, storage, etc.— to complete their move,” said George Rohlfing, Brookline Transportation owner. “There’s also some intangibles for seniors, particularly those going from a larger, single-family to a townhouse, 55-plus community or assisted living location.”
BTI move managers can help seniors prepare for a move by offering professional organizing and packing services, recommending items to make the trip to the new home or those to be sold, donated or recycled.
BTI also offers white glove assistance as seniors move into their new space. This can include moving furniture to an approved floor plan or layout, hanging photos, and working with third-party companies to connect appliances.
