Q - Why use senior move management?

A- Take Care understands the special requirements involved with moving seniors in retirement communities and senior housing environments. Our everyday job is packing and moving seniors.  Regular movers, while sympathetic to seniors, are usually in a rush.  This hurried atmosphere can be overwhelming to some folks.  While we are efficient at packing for a move, we also are looking out for our client’s well being and we schedule our packing and unpacking in a more relaxed pace to suit each individuals needs.

Q – Do you sell moving boxes?

A-Yes! Like many Portland area movers we can sell moving boxes to you.  When you hire us to pack you for local moves we let you “borrow” our boxes at no cost provided we are able to get them back from you after the move.  In cases where we can not reclaim our boxes such as long distance moves outside of the Portland metro area, we can supply all the necessary moving boxes at competitive pricing.
