Each year, thousands of seniors move. According to one data study, the number of retirees who moved in 2020 increased 30% year-over-year, jumping drastically from the 2019 figure of 397,000. As you can imagine, these retirees all move for different reasons. Some are relocating to warmer weather for retirement. Some want to be closer to grandchildren or extended family. And some are moving to take up residence in exclusive senior living facilities. Each year, the Gallo team helps seniors and retirees move into their new homes. In this blog, we’ll discuss the ins and outs of our Senior Living Program and how we can help seniors (and the facilities they move to) streamline and simplify the moving process. Let’s dive in. What is Gallo’s Senior Living Program? Moving at any age can be stressful. For seniors, however, it’s often even more complex. Many retirees and seniors are downsizing: moving out of family homes and into smaller, more compact senior living facilities. They often need storage facilities and packing assistance and may be unable to perform the heavy lifting independently. That’s where Gallo comes in. Our Senior Living Program provides seniors and retirees with flat-rate moves (within 10 miles) and best-in-class moving expertise. Here’s a quick breakdown of the program offerings: Studio moves. Gallo charges between $500–$750 for studio moves, which includes packing up to 5 boxes. Seniors can select an unpacking add-on for an additional $200–$250. One bedroom moves. Gallo offers one-bedroom moving services for between $750–$1,000. This includes packing up to 10 boxes. Customers can choose to add unpacking services for an additional $250–$350. Two bedroom moves. Retirees moving from a two-bedroom apartment will pay a flat rate of $1,000+. This includes packing up to 15 boxes. Customers can also choose to add unpacking services for $350+. Additional services include in-building and on-campus transfers, long-distance moving, facility management move services, and storage facility availability. Why Choose Gallo for Senior Living Moves?
