Senior Moves & Downsizing

A large portion of our business is dedicated to supporting seniors and their families during the transition of downsizing or moving into Senior Communities. Our goal is to take some of the load off you or your loved ones so you can focus on lifestyle or health-related needs going forward. Read more below on how we help during these unique moves:

free consultation

We start with an in-home consultation with you, listening to your story, getting a feel for challenge areas, and learning who is all involved. From there, we are able to provide an estimate of cost and timelines for the move. Wehn you’re ready to move forward, we’ll step right in to take on the job and relieve some of that initial overwhelm.


Determining timelines, staying connected with the other professionals involved, dropping off supplies, and organizing the logistics of the downsize are all part of our comprehensive services. As a Certified Senior Move Manager®, we go above and beyond the basic moving duties throughout the entire scope.


Sorting and packing can be a tedious and overwhelming process, but we are here to provide compassionate guidance during this phase of the move. If needed, we can pack all the items that are a must-have for the new residence and help sort for hauling and donations.


If you have items that are old, damaged, or unusable, we can pull them out and haul or recycle them for you. That way there’s less clutter during the packing process, allowing us to help bring the focus back on what is going to the next home.


With 200+ downsizing and senior living moves completed each year, we have extensive experience to advise and help you determine ideal layouts in the new home. This will also include suggestions on what will fit and what might feel crammed if you’re moving to a smaller space.

local deliveries & dispersing

You may have some items that you decide are still in usable condition and could be delivered to a local family member or donation centers. Our team can move these types of items where they need to go in order to continue reducing the volume of your belongings.


As the final step in this process, our team comes together to move your belongings into the new home or community. Furniture is reassembled and rooms are set up according to the plan, so you or your loved one can settle in stress-free. If extra support is needed for unpacking, it would be our pleasure to do so as well.


Having served on local senior industry boards, as well as staying connected to dozens of elder care professionals, we are more than happy to provide resources for aging in place. From grab bars to in-home care, feel free to all us for local referrals that will make life in your new home easier, safer, and happier!

“Custom Moving & Hauling helped move our mom out of her condo as she was going to assisted living. They sorted, loaded and took away items for regular donations, re-homing charities, and the dump. They were kind, efficient, and gave us a fair price when we were overwhelmed and not as organized as we could have been due to our short time schedule.”

– Debbie S.

“Custom Moving & Hauling’s crew is a fantastic resource! I work as a Senior Move Manager and have worked with Custom Moving & Hauling 4 times now – 3 times for clients and once for myself. They are honest, communicative and fair. They show up when they say they’re going to and is efficient and friendly. Services are cost effective and top notch.”
