With Silver Certification, Moving as an Older Adult Has Never Been Easier

Many of our Bekins Van Lines agents are Silver Certified, which means they have participated in specialty training for moving older adults. If you’re moving as an older adult (or you’re helping your aging parents coordinate a move), there’s a good chance you have more belongings, items of higher value, physical limitations and possibly even emotional challenges to consider than you would planning a move for a young adult.

At Bekins, we understand moving is tough no matter your age—we also understand there are certain requirements involved when you’re an older adult relocating. When you move with us, you can feel confident you’ll receive top-notch moving services to make your move easy and stress-free.

As you prepare for your move, look for the Bekins Silver Certified logo. That logo is a promise that we understand the importance and difference of moving older adults. Now, you have a lifetime’s worth of belongings—some of which are probably high in value. No matter the number of items you have, the distance you’re moving or how much help you require, Bekins is here to be your guide and helping hand.

The Upside of Downsizing

Preparing for a move is about more than just gathering and packing your stuff… It’s about growth and new beginnings. There’s a good chance you (or your aging parents) will need to do some downsizing before moving to the new home—there are years of belongings to sort through! 
That’s why Bekins Van Lines is a proud supporter of the series “Legacy List with Matt Paxton.” The Emmy-nominated TV show focuses on celebrating history and the stories found while Matt and the team help older adults declutter and transition, usually during a home relocation.
