An Adult Child Living in Boston

If you live locally and your family members are moving locally in the greater Boston area, the professionals of A Thoughtful Move can relieve the stress. We take care of all the details and enable your parents to maintain their independence and control of the process. If your family member is relocating to the Boston area after years of living in a warmer climate or relocating here from elsewhere to be closer to you, we’ll prepare their new home for their arrival and unpack and settle them in when they get there. We’ll take care of everything from lighting to cable installation.

An Adult Child Living Out of the Area

Elders often move across country to be closer to their adult children as they age. We move clients throughout the United States and internationally. We help our clients move locally or across the ocean and plan and communicate with their children to ease the move for everyone. We have a systematic process that works to allow the whole family to feel involved and informed. Our clients can feel confident leaving before the final packing begins for a long distance move, giving them time to relax with family while we handle all the final preparations and details. Our goal is to assist you and your loved ones in right sizing when moving from a larger home to a smaller home. We’ll help you make the tough decisions about what to keep and what to let go. Our extensive network of service providers will assist us in making sure your loved one’s possessions find the right new home, whether they’re sold, donated or retired.
