Our clients move for a lot of different reasons. Some are recent empty-nesters who have been planning all along to happily pack up and move the minute their kids are out of the house. Others have health issues or prefer a maintenance-free lifestyle. There are those who want to move closer to their adult children to see their grandchildren grow up. Then there are those who move because they lost a spouse and their house is too much to keep up with alone. This was the case with Mrs. O., who we recently moved from her Latham home to an apartment in Watervliet.
Q: Why did you decide it was time to downsize?
The yard work got to be too much, as did shoveling the snow. Emotionally, it was hard to go into certain rooms because the memories were just too much.
Q: How long did it take you to find your new place at Hudson Preserve Apartments?
I planned the move for over a year, checking out many apartments and senior living facilities with my sister-in-law.
Q: Did you have a plan in place for the actual move?
I assumed I would start packing and hire a moving company to execute the move. Then a co-worker told me about Organize Senior Moves. I had a no idea a company like this existed.
Q: What made you decide to hire OSM?
I didn’t want to burden my family with helping me move. I would’ve had to purchase boxes, tape, bubble wrap and worried about when to find the time to pack up a house after working two part-time jobs. Hiring OSM solved all that. They provided all packing materials.
Q: Did anything surprise you about OSM?
I was surprised how everything was placed in as close to the same spot in my new apartment as it was in my house. It was the coolest thing.
Q: How was your Project Manager and team of workers?
They were very helpful. They have such a good rhythm and routine. Nothing was broken. It also helped that they handled all of my husband’s clothing donations to the Albany City Mission.
Q: Would you hire OSM again?
I would most certainly hire Organize Senior Moves again!
For OSM, a repeat customer is the best endorsement we can ever receive.
