Packing & Unpacking
It is quite common for older adults to seek help with all of the coordination it takes to make the moving process go smoothly. Universal Services can provide you with full packing services at your request.
Having Universal Services do the packing will take some of the pressure off you, giving you one less thing to worry about. Universal Services can also do a partial pack, which means that we will only pack the fragile items or those items you are not comfortable packing. This will help save a little time for you and leave you with the confidence that the items have been correctly packed.
If you don’t have enough time to clean your home after we have moved your belongings to your new residence, Universal Services can send over our Cleaning Crew to assist you with all the last minute cleaning.
We will help you formulate a Downsizing Plan to ensure that you will be ready on your moving day. Our downsizing specialists will assist you in sorting items to be either sold at a resale or consignment shop or delivered to a charitable organization, such as Goodwill. Our team can even assist you with the shipping of furniture or collectibles to your children or relatives who may live elsewhere in the country!
Universal Services can help you with the Staging or rearranging the remaining furniture in the home. When the home is sold, we can then return to pick up and deliver the remaining pieces of furniture to their proper homes.
Universal Services also provides Storage for our clients. Our temperature controlled storage facility is connected to our office and provides you with safe and reasonable monthly rates to assist you during your transition period.
Your Senior Move Manager is trained to make sure the level of service you requested is completed prior to the departure of the move team. Seniors often sign up for packing and moving and later realize they don’t have the energy to unpack. Please inform your Move Manager and they will assist you as much as possible based on their work load for that day.
After unpacking the movers will remove all the empty cartons and paper for recycling.
