Ridgewood Moving Services: Silver Certified for New Jersey / New York Senior Moves

Senior Moving Services Ridgewood NJWhen it’s time to downsize and leave a long-time home, many older adults find the process more challenging than they may have when they were younger. Ridgewood Moving Services is proud to be Silver Certified by Wheaton-Bekins Van line, meaning we are specially trained to work with seniors who are moving—whether throughout the NJ/NY/CT tri-state area or beyond.

This Silver Certification is a badge of honor for us, as we treat all our customers like family. Older adults (or their loved ones) who choose RMS can rest assured our team will provide everything needed for a stress-free moving experience for seniors—as if they were our own parents. We understand the emotions and logistics involved with senior moves, especially since older adults are likely to have:

  • More belongings – more rooms of furniture and many keepsakes to sort through and pack
  • High-value items – such as collectibles, fine china and crystal, and antiques that require our VIP service
  • Physical limitations that may make packing and unpacking more stressful – don’t worry, we’ll take care of all of that
  • Emotional challenges or attachments to leaving your long-time home – our entire team, from office staff to our highly experienced movers, are sensitive to the needs and concerns of older adults

The Silver Certified Program is endorsed by the National Association of Specialty & Senior Move Managers (NASMM).
