“Seniors Moving Smarter moved me from my condo in Ada to a retirement home in Rockford. Everything went as expected. From the estate sale, packing, moving, unpacking and arranging. The price was lower than the quote! I highly recommend Seniors Moving Smarter.”

"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."
Mayor Poll
"Thank you for your donation of masks for the employees of the City of Wyoming. Safety of all employees is my major concern. Your donation will ease the minds of our employees and their families."

"Thank you Liz for guiding my move so successful. Thanks also to Gregg and Patrick/Cory who did such a fine job of loading the truck and safely transporting my possessions to Wis and to Cory who was here to unload. Special thanks to Gregg who was most helpful in placing furniture where I thought it should go. I shall honestly recommend your service to all."

"Nan and Liza arrived promptly, worked efficiently and were very friendly. It was a short introduction to the fine work your company can do for us in the future. Thank you."
John and Karen L
"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."

"Miracle workers! Calm, kind, compassionate, and totally professional. On one of the most difficult days of my life, moving my Mother suffering from dementia to a new living facility on a moment's notice, Liz was an anchor and a rock during the entire mad-dash process. I am forever grateful."
Kristin L
"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."
