What is Senior Move Management?


Senior Move Management is a relatively young and growing profession that assists older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation and/or "aging in place."  HB Move Management is a "Circle of Service" member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) and has assisted seniors with their downsizing and moving needs since 2006. It is our pleasure to provide seniors and their families with the following assistance;

  • Developing an overall move or "age in place" plan

  • Organizing, sorting and downsizing

  • Customizing floor plans

  • Arranging for the disbursement of unwanted items through estate sales, auctions, consignment, and/or donation

  • Providing professional packing services

  • Scheduling and overseeing professional movers from our partner >>Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage

  • Arranging shipments and storage

  • Unpacking and resettling the new home

  • Coordinating referrals to screened service providers including, but not limited to: realtors, trash hauling, shredding, housekeeping, home repair, interior designers, attorneys, and financial planners


Whereas some of the aforementioned services are performed by HB Move Management staff, others are introduced and coordinated by our administrative office. It's important to note that HB Move Management also assists individuals who choose to remain in their own homes, but require expert organizational skills and solid knowledge of "aging in place" concepts to help them achieve their goal of ... not moving anywhere, but improving their quality of life!

Client Testimonials


"Your company was referred to us by University House. Your moving crew went beyond the initially listed duties by moving some large items to my sister's condo next door.  They did this was a good attitude and tackled the challenge with enthusiasm.  The move into University house was great.  Pete kept everyone organized and things ended up in the right place.  Kevin was wonderful at placing items exactly (within an inch) of their final resting spots, and adding his own suggestions. Lastly, Nicole was a saint - putting up with our numerous emails and phone calls.  Thank you everyone."
