About Moving Assist


elderly-assist-Moving


Moving Assist Ltd is a sister company to Elderly Assist Ltd. We started Elderly Assist to remove stress and complications for the elderly as they downsized from their current home to a retirement village. However we have come to appreciate that people with busy lives also find they do not have the time or contacts needed to arrange everything when a decision has been made to move homes or relocate from offshore or within New Zealand for business or family reasons. Many children and friends of our Elderly Assist clients have asked us to assist them to move.

Testimonials


We have assisted many elderly singles and couples move into retirement villages or just move to another home.

Here are some of their comments

“Janice and her team were incredibly helpful and efficient with clearing out my late father’s house. Everything was organised and actioned promptly and with care. I have no hesitation in recommending Elderly Assist.” – Julie

“Janice’s team of mature women made my move into a retirement village a breeze. The professional way in which my delicate china ware and glasses were packed ensured that nothing was broken in transit or in unpacking. When every thing was unpacked these ladies new just where every thing should go. For an elderly male this was a real bonus. I rate Janice and her team top notch and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone downsizing and moving house. ” – Joe

“great service, reliable, experienced, helpful ,friendly. Took huge load off our shoulders. not cheap but worth the cost to give peace of mind” – Peter

“They did a great job. I couldn’t have managed without them. My parents, especially Mum, having been an organiser and “doer” all her life, did a lot of wanting to interfere, which she is physically no longer able to do. But that didn’t stop her from trying! “– Diane

“Awesome service! An emotional time clearing out mum’s life when she agreed to be a rest home – the same home which our father built 63 years ago.. I asked for assistance from Janice and her team on the Monday stating that the property needed to be clear that Wednesday midday. Short notice on our behalf – though Elderly Assist bent over backwards to help us. All was done and dusted by 2pm and some treasures found too. End result – awesome” – Faye

“Elderly Assist have just helped us move in to a Retirement Village and WOW. What fun we had. A lot of laughter with a fantastic team of the most professional people, who took out all the stress of the move for us. Being disabled we just sat back and let them do it all. I would thoroughly recommend Elderly Assist to anybody who is moving, and through the positive experience we have had I am spreading the word. Thank you Janice, and please thank all who were involved with helping us. You…” – Robin

“Elderly assist were fabulous – they were so helpful and understanding for us at this time”– Nicola

“Janice and her team are consumate professionals who ensured that Dads move was as straightforward and painless as possible, at all stages. They have thorough in their communication, and there is immense attention to detail, even to the point where they were making sure Dad had his meals properly. They are not the cheapest service, but I believe that generally you get what you pay for, and in this case you get amazing value for money. Would definitely recommend.” – David

“I was shifting from a 3 bedroom full size house with basement, in which my late wife and I had lived since 1974, to a 2 room serviced apartment at a retirement village so that I had to drastically reduce the amount of my possessions and stuff accumulated over that time.
The Assist team works efficiently in full consultation and sympathetically with the customer to sort out what has to go and in my case managed the whole process of shifting. In addition they arranged disposal of surplus items, with those of higher value going to a well-known auction firm.
Although Elderly Assist is not cheap, Janice Ellis and her cheerful, accomplished and cooperative team provided excellent service. I can honestly say that I could not have coped without them, especially since my health was not always good at the time and I had a spell in hospital.
“ – Ian
