Moving and Storage Divider

Moving and Storage Services

Make sure you have the information you need to protect your memories, money, and belongings from moving problems.

The best defense against moving difficulties is to be informed and aware of your options when choosing a reputable mover. While most household moves go smoothly, there are many pitfalls that you should be aware of. It can also be stressful, even under the best of circumstances. Use the checklist here to help guide you through the moving venture.

A key step is to read and understand all information provided by the mover. These should include the following basic documents as part of your move:

Estimates
The estimate should clearly describe, in writing, all charges for services the mover will perform. Make sure the estimate is signed by the mover.
Do not accept oral estimates.

Order for Service
The order for service is a list of all the services the mover will perform and shows the dates your household goods will be picked up and delivered
.

Bill of Lading
The bill of lading is a contract between you and the mover and a receipt of your belongings. You should be given a partially completed copy of the bill of lading before the mover leaves the residence at origin.


The inventory is the receipt showing each item you shipped and its condition. Be sure you receive a written copy of the inventory after your household goods are loaded, and that you agree with its description of your household goods' condition

Aging in Place

Aging In Place

Aging in Place "Aging in place" is growing older without having to move. Aging in place with supportive services is one of the most desirable ways of aging. Aging in place can achieve efficiencies enabled by the customized care. Successful aging in place approaches focus on the provision of the most appropriate care for the specific individual. Thus avoiding wasted costs brought on by a "generic" care model.

An aging in place scenario, creates housing and health care options to provide support as defined by an individuals wishes and efforts to live independently. Aging in place can work best when it is employed as a part of a comprehensive plan for retirement and aging. A key step in implementing aging in place is to make your home aging friendly. As we age we don't hear so well, we sometimes forget or get confused and we can even outlive doctor's predictions about our longevity. So as long as we persist in growing older, why not arrange our homes to accommodate our reality. Incorporate memory triggers into the way we arrange cabinets and counters, add soft fabrics to muffle background noises, change appliances to better accommodate our short-comings.

Here is a book to help you make your homes senior-friendly.

Universal Design: A Step-by-Step Guide to Modifying Your Home for Comfortable, Accessible Living
The book, Universal Design: A Step-by-Step Guide to Modifying Your Home for Comfortable, Accessible Living by Barbara Krueger and Nika Stewart is a good place to start.With the book as a guide you can plan ahead for years before you critically need the advantages offered by the ideas in the book.
