Silver Certification: Moving Made Easy for Older Adults
What Does Silver Certified Mean?
The Silver Certification Program is a specialty training opportunity for moving older adults that is offered to moving companies and agents. Many Wheaton agents are Silver Certified, which means we understand the emotional and physical challenges of moving as an older adult. Moving seniors takes a specific skill set that Wheaton agents are equipped with.
The Importance of Senior Moving Services
When you move as an older adult, there’s a good chance you’ve got more belongings, items of higher value and are in need of more assistance with moving than when you were a young adult. At Wheaton, we are dedicated and passionate about providing you with moving services that’ll make your move as worry-free as possible. Whether you’re making the move to assisted living or you need to downsize, we’re the full-service moving company for your next relocation.
We Don’t Just Move Your Belongings, We Move Your Life
Moving is a big deal, and your moving company shouldn’t treat it as anything less. You’ve got a lifetime of memories collected and the items to prove it. We’re here to make sure that you and your belongings get to your new home hassle-free.
If you’re an older adult planning a move, look for the Wheaton Silver Certified logo. When you see that logo, you get the confidence of knowing that the program is endorsed by the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) and that your move is in great hands.
