Clients Are Handled With Care

Nothing is more important than you and your belongings. We understand that and take we pride in handling your belongings professionally and carefully. When we care for your belongings we are caring for you.

We Help You Embrace Change
Moving isn’t just a change in location, it’s an emotional adjustment. For anyone fighting the idea of leaving their home, we have proven ways of helping them feel more comfortable with the change, and many of our clients feel a sense of renewal after the move. This can be a positive experience – let us show you how.

We Help You Focus on the Important Stuff
Many of the moves we assist with are going from a larger residence to a smaller place. This means making decisions on what to keep, and what to do with the rest. This is one of the most challenging aspects of moving, and with our guidance, we can make the process of saying goodbye smooth and painless.

We Make Sure your Connected with the Right Help
We take all the worries and stressors out of the equation. We schedule and organize every aspect of the move so you don’t have to. We select the right moving team and supervise them to make sure your most precious belongings are safe and secure.

We Become Part of Your Family
You are as important to us as our own family. We will help with the big things – that’s obvious, but it’s our assistance with the little things that makes all the difference.

Specialty Services

We understand the challenges of moving a loved one with dementia. Moving someone with dementia involves so much more than furniture. Our training and our experience will help this move go smoother and help your loved one and you with the transition.

When you hire Seniors Moving Smarter for your long distance move to or from Grand Rapids, you’re inviting our family-oriented team along for the ride. Knowing your moving team and who is handling your belongings all the way will give you peace of mind.

Things happen in life, and you can’t always plan ahead for a move. Fortunately, Seniors Moving Smarter offers short notice moving services and is ready whenever you are. When the unexpected happens, such as an illness or injury, you can count on us to be ready to help.

Our clients have gathered possessions for a lifetime and often have collections of valuable and/or fragile belongings. Our staff of careful movers is skilled and knowledgeable about the proper handling of finer, fragile and expensive items.

We make every job, every client, and every single belonging our personal responsibility.

Everything we do is driven by our mission: to enhance the lives of our clients and their families.

Superlatives often become eyebrow raisers. This group is even better than that! Liz took time with my clients who were stressed about the move (who isn't?). She answered every question calmly, professionally, and definitely spoke from experience. The preparation was a big part of the success of the move as Liz took the time to visit their new place, then knowing their space helped them decide what to take........

Liz is terrific -- the move that she coordinated was fabulous! I cannot say enough good things about Liz and Carl. I HIGHLY recommend Seniors Moving Smarter. Now, making face masks and sending them to those in need -- another awesome way to contribute to their community!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

Once again Liz and her Seniors Moving Smarter crew have come through for me. After providing great help with my move four years ago they delivered to my door ten homemade cloth masks so that my family and I could properly protect ourselves and others when we venture out for necessary food and medical supplies. Thanks a million gals!

The entire team helped us prepare our home for sale by assisting in removal of the accumulation of 40 years of family living. They did a great job. The move was expedited by the professional assistance with packing and unpacking to help us settle in to our new home. Great job by the entire team.

"You made 2019 so great for me and mom. Thank you for stepping in at the perfect time. This is the new key to the front door. I had the locks changed. You will need it when we finish clearing the house. Here’s my wish that 2020 brings you and your family everything you hope for."

"Thank you so much for all of the support you have given to our Kindred Hospice teams. We are all so grateful for the extra effort taken to make the face masks. Without your help, many of our team members – nurses, aides, social workers, chaplains, would be at risk. Words seem so insignificant, but they are from the heart. Thank you."

"Thanks so much. Everything was great. Your idea to keep things familiar and the way the room was set up was perfect. After getting Dad to Fulton Manor and sitting for about twenty minutes, he made a comment that he thought he was going to move that day. Everything was so familiar that he didn’t even realize he was already moved. The items shipped to Virginia went so fast that the boxes were already on the porch when we got home late Friday night. You did a great job four and a half years ago and you did a great job this time as well. Thank you."

"Can't say enough great things about Seniors Moving Smarter! My parents were moved today from their condominium home of 26 years to a senior community "apartment". From the team of "packers" who arrived yesterday to begin the process to the team of movers who arrived today to load the truck, everyone was friendly, helpful and anticipated many of my parents needs before they even knew what it was they needed. A+++ I would recommend Seniors Moving Smarter to anyone moving their elderly parents."

"As the Director of Operations for a local home care agency I continually look for like minded professionals who are passionate about providing exceptional service to seniors. I have been thoroughly impressed with the professionalism and thoughtful consideration Seniors Moving Smarter has integrated in their business model. They have thought through and manage each detail of the delicate transition a senior must face as they depart from their home and transition to a new one. I was especially impressed to learn about their pre-move downsizing and space planning services. They are passionate about what they do and it shows. I extend my highest recommendations to them every opportunity I get."
