Help with downsizing

Moving On - Downsizing

Some older adults will find a time of down-sizing exciting and liberating, others will find they have become less able to cope with stress, and may find the thought of downsizing daunting or upsetting. 


At Moving On, our priority is to offer a practical and understanding approach to any downsizing move, together with emotional support for those that need it. 


We recognise that each downsizing move will be different – you may be downsizing from a very large house to a flat, or from a bungalow to a retirement or nursing home.  That’s why we offer a breadth of services which can be cherry-picked according to individual needs.  With downsizing we can help with:

  • de-cluttering (sorting, packing, selling or removal etc)
  • advising on 'staging' a home prior to sale
  • finding suitable estate agents
  • co-ordinating decorators
  • co-ordinating removals company
  • co-ordinating packing up of current home
  • un-packing at your new home & settling you in (setting up kitchens & bathrooms, making beds)
  • co-ordinating address change notifications
  • supporting individuals during the move day (arranging travel etc)
  • advising on space-planning


Why is moving home different for older adults?


We can ease this whole process for you by addressing all the tasks which need to be carried out and co-ordinating all or part of your downsizing move.  We can discuss your requirements with you and put together a plan to ensure this is carried out in good time, relieving you of the stress & time involved.
