Senior Moving Estimate
When searching for a senior moving company, it’s important to request quotes from at least three senior moving companies. The moving company will connect you with a dedicated senior moving specialist after you submit an estimate request. Your moving specialist will answer all your questions and act as your main person of contact throughout the entire moving process. Before the actual move, your senior moving specialist will hand you an Order of Service outlining the services you will receive and their estimated charges. When your moving day arrives, your moving crew will arrive and start to load your pre-packed items onto the air-cushioned truck. One of your movers will write down each item and its current condition on the Bill of Lading before they load them onto the moving truck.
Once your possessions reach their final destination, they are checked against this record for accuracy as they are unloaded into your new residence. If you prefer not to pack your belongings, many movers offer specialized packing services for an extra fee. If you choose this option, a team of professional packers will arrive a few days before your move to pack up as many items as you choose. Once every item is set up per your preferences at the new location, you’ll inspect and confirm the condition of your belongings before signing off on the Bill of Lading with the team leader.
If you have mobility limitations or other health concerns, our moving specialists and team are here to address any special requirements you may have.

Senior movers typically employ specialized handling techniques and materials, such as moving blankets and reinforced dollies, to ensure the safety of fragile or valuable items. If you use your moving company’s packing services, they will likely use bubble wrap, specialty boxes, and sometimes custom crating. Additionally, they may employ specialized equipment and techniques for transporting particularly delicate or bulky items.
At Triangle Movers, keeping your belongings safe is our top priority. We offer specialty moves for extremely valuable items such as antiques. Our antiques moving services ensure that fragile or valuable items, heirlooms, and collectibles are wrapped in moving blankets and transported with utmost care. In addition, our professional moving team is skilled in disassembling and reassembling larger furniture items, which guarantees their safe arrival at the new location.
The initial stage of planning a senior move is commonly centered around a detailed estimate. During this process, your moving company will ask questions to understand your specific needs and requirements for your move as an older adult. Conversations about which belongings will be moved are had, along with identifying any storage necessities the move might require. Following the planning stage, the execution of the move includes services such as packing, if opted for, loading, transporting, and unloading the items, and eventually setting them up in the new residence.
When opting for Triangle Movers’ packing services, our proficient team arrives several days before the scheduled moving day to pack up your belongings carefully. On the day designated for the move, your items are securely loaded for transport to their new destination. Upon arrival, our experienced team ensures that each item is carefully unloaded and arranged in its new environment.
Throughout the entire moving process, Triangle Movers offers flexibility in scheduling, including weekend availability, to accommodate the requirements of any new retirement community or senior living facility. Additionally, we pair every customer with a dedicated moving specialist who is consistently available to answer questions and guide you through each step of your move.

The duration of a senior move depends on several variables, including the distance of the move, the size of the residence, and the number of items to be transported. While local moves might be completed in a day or two, longer-distance or more complex moves might require several days to several weeks. If you are moving long-distance, the best way to estimate the timeline is to allow one day for loading, one day for unloading, and an additional day for every 500 miles of travel. However, since timelines vary greatly from move to move, the best way to get an accurate timeline is to request a free moving estimate from your moving company.
With Triangle Movers, we leverage our extensive experience to ensure efficient and timely relocations.

We also provide estimated timelines in our free moving estimates, so you will have all the information you need before you sign on to move with us.
Due to global health concerns, senior moving companies have adopted stringent health and safety protocols. These might include regular sanitization of equipment, wearing masks and gloves, practicing physical distancing, and regular health check-ups for crew members. If you have health concerns, reach out to your dedicated moving specialist, who should be able to make accommodations for you.
At Triangle Movers, the health and well-being of our customers and staff are extremely important, especially when serving customers who are immunodeficient or at high risk of contracting diseases. Our crew is equipped with necessary protective gear and is trained to follow best practices, ensuring our senior customers remain safe and protected during their move. We also offer free virtual moving quotes to reduce exposure for anyone with medical concerns, especially our customers of older age.
Reputable senior moving companies ensure they are fully licensed and insured to offer customers peace of mind. Licensing indicates that the company meets industry and government standards and regulations, while insurance protects customers in case of any damages or unforeseen incidents during the move. It is an industry-standard for moving companies to carry workers comp and general liability insurance policies.
Federal and state laws require moving companies advertising and completing local moves in New York to have a New York Department of Transportation (NYDOT) license. Movers who advertise and complete long-distance moves, or moves across state lines, must have a United State Department of Transportation (USDOT) license. All these licenses should be listed on the moving company’s website, but you can always check your moving company’s USDOT license in the Federal Mover’s Database.
Triangle Movers is fully licensed, using Bekins Van Line’s USDOT license number (2256609) and our New York State DOT license number (33402). In addition to our licenses, we also carry workers comp and general liability policies to protect all parties involved in the moving process. We are also a Certified ProMover by the American Trucking Association: Moving & Storage Conference. This showcases our commitment to adhering to the highest industry standards, giving our customers the assurance they need when entrusting us with their move.
Potential customers often seek reviews to gauge the quality and reliability of a senior moving company. These reviews are typically found on company websites, Google Customer Reviews, and other independent platforms that allow users to share their experiences. However, it is best to read reviews on third-party websites, like Google or Yelp, as this ensures the reviews come directly from the customer.
While many moving companies curate reviews on their website, they often filter through the best reviews and sometimes edit them to make their company look better. Be wary of curated reviews on websites for this reason, and always read reviews from a third-party website.
For those interested in learning more about Triangle Movers and our services, we invite them to read our Google Customer Reviews. We boast a high rating of 4.8/5 stars from over 100 customer ratings.
