Senior Long Distance Moving Companies Philadelphia, PA Offers

Just over half of all the people who move in the U.S. are over the age of 50. Of these, approximately 30% are over 60 years old and are relocating into a condominium, apartment, retirement community, or assisted living facility.

A senior move often has its own challenges and can be particularly emotional if someone is leaving a family home that has decades of memories contained within. This move can be a major event in the individual’s life and their family members.

Long distance Philadelphia, PA moving companies understand this and can help everyone involved work through the difficulties of moving. If you are a senior and moving, call Suburban Solutions to discuss your needs and to receive a complimentary quote.

Dealing with the Stress from Moving

There is no way around it – moving is stressful, especially long distance! But the good news is that there are things that you can do to help alleviate that stress as you address all the issues that need to be addressed to make sure you get from point A to point B.

There are multiple de-stressing techniques that you can do that will really help make a difference. Make sure to take time to exercise. Some of the best exercises to help alleviate stress is walking, running, or yoga. Deep breathing exercises are also helpful in eliminating that stress from your body.

It is also important to take a few minutes each day to completely unplug from the phone, computer, television, and any other device that keeps us from just relaxing. And don’t forget to treat yourself during this whole process, have lunch with friends, get a massage, read a book, take a hot bath, whatever it is that makes you happy, make sure to take that time.

Another way to combat stress during your move is to make a to-do list. There are so many issues, both big and small, that need to be taken care of in a move that it is almost impossible to remember them all. Writing down what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, and being able to cross it off when it is done allow you to know at all times just how on schedule everything is and that is definitely a stress eliminator.

It is important to be organized when packing, too. You want to make sure to pack non-essential items first. These are the items that you won’t be needing before the move or immediately following the move, such as books, home décor items, and seasonal clothing. A few days before your actual move date, create a “moving day” box or use a suitcase to put the items that you will need right up until you move and immediately when you arrive at your new home. This can include clothes, toiletries, phone charges, and financial items like checkbooks and credit cards.

When it comes to packing, if you can afford to hire packers to help with packing and/or unpacking, consider it. Packing is very time-consuming, especially if you do not have a lot of experience doing it and you may find yourself become very stressed at the sometimes-overwhelming task at hand it can be.

If you are doing your own packing, it can be helpful if you are able to take some time off from work during the week rather than try to fit everything in on the weekends. Or better yet, contact a professional to help you get organized and packed quickly and stress free!

And most important to controlling long-distance moving stress is to make sure you eat a healthy diet. Superfoods like turkey breast, leafy green vegetables, blueberries, yogurt, salmon, oatmeal, dark chocolate, avocados, milk, pistachios, and cashews can all help to stabilize your blood sugar and reduce stress.
Hiring a Professional

A great way to eliminate a lot of stress is hiring the right people to help your long distance move. With the professionalism and efficiency of our long distance moving company in Philadelphia, PA, Suburban solutions is here to help moving day (and the days leading up to it) stay as stress-free as possible!

Why You Should Use Long Distance Moving Companies Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Residents Rely On

Most of us have heard moving tips such as to not lift with your back, and never try to carry more than you can. However, there are plenty of other useful tips to consider when moving to help prevent the incidence of injury. The last thing anyone in the middle of a relocation wants to do is sustain a serious injury. A move can be incredibly exciting, as new opportunities and sites await. Taking preventative actions can help keep you and those helping you relocate injury-free. While some of these suggestions may seem intuitive, they are worth factoring into your moving day:

#1 Keep a First Aid Kit Handy

If you sustain a minor injury such as a cut or scrape, it can be helpful to have a first aid kit in your home (but not packed away!) so you can apply ointment and a bandaid. Or, this kit can be useful if you suffered a serious injury and must manage the wound until you can get to the hospital or wait for an ambulance to arrive. Many of us have a first aid kit laying around the house somewhere, but the contents may have gotten old over the years of not being used. Go through your first aid kit and toss anything that has surpassed the expiration date.

#2 Buy an Assortment of Snacks and Water

Moving can be physically and mentally taxing work, so it can perk up your energy to have non-perishable snacks and water available when needed. Don’t forget to take breaks and maybe even stretch a little bit in between bouts of loading. With such a busy moving day, it can be easy to forget to give your body the nourishment it requires to keep going. You may be more susceptible to getting hurt if you feel tired, depleted, and fatigued.

#3 Label Boxes Based on Room

This simple yet genius trick can help make the unloading process run particularly smooth. If you label boxes based on what room they will be going into for the new place, then you won’t have to spend time figuring out which boxes go where. This can be truly important if you have hired professional movers assist with the relocation. It’ll save you money and their time, if they know exactly where a box needs to go when unloading the moving truck or van.

#4 Consider Hiring Suburban Solutions for your Philadelphia Long Distance Move

If people hire a moving company, it is usually only for the stage where items are already boxed up and just need to be loaded then transported in the truck. However, many moving services offer help when it comes to packing up your things too. This can be a resource for those who want to avoid the risk of being injured at all. With that extra time, you can then attend to other tasks on your to-do list related to the move. If you have the expenses to hire professionals, it may be worth the investment.

    Great experience during my move. The crew showed up within the designated arrival time frame, came in and started wrapping things. They didn’t waste anytime. They were very polite throughout the day, and even told me when they were going to take a 5 minute break (only break of the day). I was very happy with the service.
