There are quite a few things to consider when deciding if you should handle your own move or hire a senior move manager. While you are certainly capable of downsizing, purchasing supplies, packing, cleaning, unpacking, and resettling yourself, there is a physical and financial cost that the work carries. If family and friends are needed to help, there is also a cost to them.
By hiring professionals who have the staff, tools, and efficient processes to handle these tasks, you free up your time and energy to focus on other things that matter most.
Our rates are determined by the amount of time and number of professionals you’ll need to complete your move or clearout. Our in-home estimates are free and will help us determine the scope of your project.
Senior Downsizing Resources
At WayForth, we offer essential senior moving and downsizing tips, guidelines, and resources to help you transition to your new life, whether you’re spending it in a smaller home or care community. As overwhelming as it may seem, you can rest assured that your life and home contents will be in good hands during this journey.
5 Senior Downsizing Tips
- Start Early – It is never too early to begin. Be sure to give yourself enough time to sort through your possessions at your own pace to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
- Do you Really Love/Need/Use it? – Ask yourself these questions and answer them honestly. You will find many belongings will get a “No” answer.
- Avoid “Maybe” Piles – Form a “Yes” pile for things you love, need, and use, and a “No” pile for the rest.
- Take Time to Feel – Downsizing may cause feelings of sadness—give yourself enough time to process emotions that may arise through this transition.
- Ask for Help – You don’t have to go through this on your own. The senior move managers at WayForth are standing by to help ease the burden.
Our Senior Move Services
WayForth understands that every client and their situation is unique. That is why we offer comprehensive senior moving and downsizing services designed to accommodate the specific needs of each individual client.
Senior Move Planning and Coordination
Coordinating all the parts and pieces of a senior move is complex and time consuming. At WayForth we provide a single solution and point of contact for every service you need. We will guide you through the entire process, handling all the logistics so that the transition is smooth and seamless.
It can be scary wondering if your furniture is going to fit in a smaller space. We will work with you to measure and draw scaled floor plans that ensure your furniture will not only fit, but be functional and look great in your new home.
Pre-Move Sorting, Decluttering and Downsizing
One of the biggest challenges of a senior move is dealing with all the “stuff” that has accumulated over years and often decades. Our team of senior move managers will help review the contents of the home, providing gentle guidance as you decide which items you’d like to keep and which you are ready to let go of.
Packing and Moving of Belongings
We will carefully pack belongings—from the tiniest figurine to the biggest piece of furniture—using professional grade supplies. Once packed, our team will professionally move everything to your new residence, placing furniture according to your floorplan or at your direction.
Resettling the New Home (Unpacking)
Getting everything into your new home is a big step forward, but that’s not where the work ends. Unpacking and setting up a new home can be just as tiring as packing the old one. Fatigue often compounds because there is not much time for rest in between.
At WayForth, we have dedicated teams trained to handle our clients and their personal belongings with care and compassion. We will place items in your new home according to your floor plan and specifications so that it feels like home upon moving in and you can start enjoying your new surroundings immediately.
Online Auctions, Donations Delivery and Trash Hauling
When downsizing, you’re essentially left with items in your home that you simply can’t take with you. Our job is to help you sell, donate, recycle, or dispose of those items. No matter how much or how daunting it may seem, we have the tools and resources to make it easy.
WayForth has partnered with a local licensed auctioneer to provide online auction services to help our clients reclaim value from items they no longer want or need. Held in our warehouse, auctions are run regularly to profitably dispose of client’s belongings. For items that are not viable to be sold, we partner with local non-profits to give gently used belongings a new life in local communities. Finally, if it can’t be sold or donated, we’ll coordinate recycling and trash removal. All you have to do is decide what goes and we’ll handle the rest.
Cleaning and Prepping the Home for Sale
Ensuring that your Richmond home is ready to be loved by a new owner is the last step in our process. Our team will come in and make sure everything is emptied out and the house is cleaned and ready for its next life.
Every home is filled with stories and memories. When the people move on and it is time to prepare the house for its next family, your WayForth team is on hand to compassionately and quickly sort and clear out what is left. Whether you need a simple clear out, or a more extensive clean up, we’ll be there to do it all for you.
Sometimes you need to sell your house to free up the cash flow needed for a move or house clear-out. WayForth offers financing for qualified families in Richmond, VA that allows access to our services now, with the payment due when the house sells.
