Senior Moving Services: More Than Just Packing

004-senior-moving

Whether it’s across town or across the country, moving as a senior can be a strenuous experience. From planning the move to redecorating the new place, a big move can prove to be exhausting for older adults. Even with the help of friends and family members on moving day, relocation is daunting for individuals who have spent many years in the same home. Arrow Moving and Storage can assist seniors of all ability levels in planning and implementing their move. From beginning to end, Arrow Moving will be there to help every step of the way.

Pre-Moving

Before you or your loved one ever pull out a box, some planning needs to be done to ensure the move goes as smoothly and safely as possible. There’s nothing more frustrating than being unable to fit all of your possessions in the boxes you have to transport. Weeks or even months before a move, our expert senior move team will take a complete inventory of all your loved one’s possessions. We’ll work with our client to downsize their items, even managing and executing all sales, donations, disposals and shipments. With fewer items to move, your loved one can feel comfortable being able to organize and transport all their most precious possessions in as few trips as possible.

Packing and Moving

The moving day is finally here, and it’s time to get packing! Let Arrow Moving & Storage take care of the heavy lifting for you. Our team of courteous, dedicated movers will respectfully pack, load, move, unload and unpack your belongings as quickly and gently as possible. Many seniors may struggle to assist with the moving process due to arthritis, limb weakness or other pre-existing conditions. Luckily, Arrow movers are happy to complete the process in its entirety. You or your loved one may choose to either stay for the entire moving process or enjoy a day out while we finish the job.

Settling In

Arrow’s services don’t stop when the moving is done. Your loved one may need assistance with unpacking and decorating their new home. Whether they’ve moved to an apartment home, assisted living community or a new house, our movers will help place each and every piece with care. Moving is stressful and spending the following days or weeks trying to relocate the items they need in a sea of boxes can make resettling difficult, especially if they have limited mobility. We take our time with each client to ensure their design preferences are being met and their new house begins to feel like home.

Enjoy Moving with Arrow Moving & Storage

Older adults may struggle with the entire process of uprooting their lives and transporting it elsewhere. With Arrow Moving & Storage’s senior moving services, the transition doesn’t have to be so difficult. To receive a quote from our senior moving team, contact us online or call 800-593-6683.

Colorado Springs Cajun! – FOOD FOR THOUGHT

 

An employee’s review and opinion of a local
Colorado Springs eatery,
Culpepper’s Cajun Kitchen.

Arrow employee Tricia’s review of her dining experience at Culpepper’s…
“If your in the southwest area ofColorado Springs, say aroundFortCarson, there is a nice little eatery to stop for a fast lunch when you doing your Saturday errands, if you need the “bite of the bayou” experience take Exit 44 off of Hwy 115 and go into the shopping center.
The Owner suggested that since I had not been there before to order the ‘combo plate’. The music totally keeps you entertained and is a nice selection of Louisiana Cajun beats…..the platter arrives…….with generous little cups of GUMBO, RED BEANS & RICE, CRAWFISH ETOUFFE AND MAQUE CHOLIX. Slap Ya Moma cajun seasoning is delicious! Just the right blend! The music, the food and the happy faces gave me energy to finish my Saturday errands. Next time I’m trying Aunt Sallie’s Praline’s!”

From their website:
There’s a reason that the Gazette keeps awarding the “Best of Cajun” First Place Reader’s Choice Winner 2008-2011. Offering the very best of traditional Louisiana cuisine, the atmosphere is casual and comfortable with beautiful mountain views. Servings are made-from-scratch classics: gumbo, fried catfish, jambalaya, crawfish etouffee, red beans & rice, po-boys, beignets, sweet tea and much more!

Arrow Moving Salutes Moms Everywhere!

<p align=”center”><span style=”color: #800080; font-size: 14px;”><strong>Make this Mother’s Day unforgettable, serve her breakfast “ in bed”.</strong></span><span style=”font-size: 14px;”><strong><a href=”http://arrowmoving.net/residential-corporate-movers/2012/05/arrow-moving-salutes-moms-everywhere/mom/” rel=”attachment wp-att-2847″><img class=”alignright size-full wp-image-2847″ title=”Mom” src=”http://blog.arrowmoving.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Mom.png” alt=”” width=”223″ height=”227″ /></a></strong></span></p>
Quick and easy but delicious, the breakfast casserole is put together the night before. A delicious cantaloupe smoothie and easy muffins make this breakfast memorable.

This easy breakfast bake is made with whole eggs, thick bacon, and shredded cheese. It’s easy to prepare and bakes quickly for a fabulous everyday breakfast in one dish. Serve this flavorful breakfast with sliced fresh fruit or berries, or make a warm spiced fruit compote.

Yield: <strong>Serves 4</strong>
<ul>
<li>6 thick slices bacon</li>
<li>2 cups torn bread crumbs</li>
<li>1 tablespoon butter, melted</li>
<li>1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese</li>
<li>4 large eggs</li>
<li>1 cup light cream or half-and-half</li>
<li>salt and pepper</li>
<li>snipped fresh chives, optional</li>
</ul>
<h3><span style=”font-size: 12px;”>Cook the bacon and coarsely chop. See the tip below for cooking the bacon.  Heat oven to 375°.</span></h3>
Toss the bread crumbs with the melted butter.  Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with butter. Sprinkle half of the bread crumbs over the bottom of the dish. Follow with about half of the shredded cheese, then half of the coarsely chopped cooked bacon. Break each egg in a cup before sliding into the baking dish. Top the bacon and cheese layer evenly with the 4 eggs.

Top the eggs with the remaining bread crumbs, cheese, and bacon. Pour cream evenly over all. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until set. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with chives, if using. Cut into four portions and serve with fresh sliced fruit or berries.

<strong>Tip:</strong> Cook the bacon in the oven. Line a large baking pan, such as a jelly roll pan, with foil. Top with a cake cooling rack or broiling rack. Spray with nonstick baking spray then lay the bacon on the rack. Bake at 375° for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until done as desired. Drain on paper towels and eat as is or dice and use in a recipe.
