Moving

The OneSource Moving Solutions for Seniors team will facilitate your move with care and attention. Beyond conducting a stress-free movement of items, the OneSource team works with seniors to help them make important decisions about their belongings and detach the sentimentality from items that are not feasible for their new space. This process requires a compassionate team that is ready to handle the challenge of sorting through a lifetime of belongings with the owner. The OneSource team is accredited and trained annually for exactly this process.

Decluttering & Downsizing

Whether you’re moving or just want to de-clutter your home, the ONESource team can help you sort and organize your home. We’ll work with you to classify and organize your items – what to keep, what to sell, what to give away or donate to charity. Then we’ll make the arrangements to have items sold, picked up or shipped. When we’re done, your home will feel larger and it will be easier to find important items.

When ONESource comes to your home, we assess your possessions and calculate how much time and labour will be needed to de-clutter or downsize your possessions. You will receive a written proposal showing the fee schedule and the time needed to complete the sale.

Moving Sales

When people downsize to a smaller home, they no longer need all the possessions they had in the larger home. These possessions may have value to others. Moving sales take place at the client’s home.

Our experienced team know how to price sale items according to current market value so that buyers will purchase them. We call in trained professionals to identify valuable items so that an informed decision can be made on the fair market price of antiques and collectibles. We have a network of buyers that attend our sales.

The ONESource team can look after every detail of the sale. We will advertise the sale, sort, organize, and price the items, sell the items on your behalf and make sure that everything is cleaned up after the sale is over.

Packing

One thing is certain – if you’re moving you’ll need to pack. Packing is never easy, especially if you have years’ worth of things to be sorted through and organized. Whether you’re a growing family on the move or empty nesters looking to downsize a lifetime of possessions, ONESource is uniquely positioned to help.

Because we understand the mental/emotional challenges that come with deciding what to keep and what not to keep, our team can be the clear-headed professionals you need to help you sort through and decide what to do with your possessions.

Packing the ONESource way means that we downsize, organize and pack all in one step. You can sit in a comfy chair and tell our team what you want to keep, sell, give to family, or dispose of. Your valued possessions get handled only once, then safely boxed and labelled, ready for move day. The ONESource team makes it easy, fast and painless. You are in charge.

Let our family help you move into a clutter-free life.

Residence Selection

Is it time to move from the family home? Not sure where to start or what questions to ask? For many seniors and their family members, the thought of making phone calls or touring retirement residences can be overwhelming. Do you have a special diet? Do you require on-site nursing care? Want to bring your pet to your new home?

ONESource is assembling a list of local retirement residences, and their distinct features and services. We can provide this information to you and set up meetings at the residences.

Cleaning

As our clients transition from one home to another, they often require a cleaning service to prepare their current home for sale or to leave it spotless for the new owners. Sometimes your new home could use a good cleaning before your valued possessions are put in place.  Maybe you’re not moving but would like to schedule a thorough cleaning of your home, as a one-time project or on a regular schedule.

Staging Your Home for Resale

The transition from one home to another requires the sale of the previous location. The OneSource team is experienced in staging a home for optimal resale and has worked with real estate agents to facilitate the quick sale of an existing residence.

Unpacking and Setting Up

Take it easy on your moving day and let the ONESource team handle the details. Our same-day guarantee means that all your precious possessions will be unpacked and safely put away the day of  your move.

While you relax with friends or enjoy a day of shopping, we’ll arrive early to oversee the movers. Then we’ll make sure that every piece of furniture is placed safely and in the right spot in your new home. Our team will unpack your boxes, put things away where you’ve instructed us to and hang your artwork. We’ll put clean sheets on your bed, and your phone and TV will be in good working order.

When you arrive at your new home in time for dinner, you’ll open the door and feel right at home. No empty boxes or items cluttering up your new space – just your precious and familiar things showcased in your new space.

Cancel and Transfer of Utilities

One of the most overwhelming tasks for anyone moving is contacting all the utilities that need to be informed. Your telephone, Canada Pension, Home Insurance and TV services will need to be informed of the date they will be discontinued at your old home and either cancelled or restarted at your new home.

Our trusted staff will make the calls on your behalf. In most cases, all the details can be handled by our team, and you will only need to speak to the utility at the end of the call to authorize the changes. Canada Post will need to be informed about your change in address. We’ll help you complete the necessary forms and even fill in and address postcards to your list of contacts.

Support to Powers of Attorney & Executors

ONESource works with Executors of Estates and Powers of Attorney to help clear homes and sell and distribute possessions. A professionally managed Estate Sale ensures that valuable items are not thrown out or sold below their market value. Estate sales take place at the client’s home.

Our experienced team know how to price sale items according to current market value so that buyers will purchase them. We call in trained professionals to identify valuable items so that an informed decision can be made on the fair market price of antiques and collectibles. We have a network of buyers that attend our sales.

The ONESource team can look after every detail of the sale. We will advertise the sale, sort, organize, and price the items, sell the items on your behalf and make sure that everything is cleaned up after the sale is over.

Aging in Place

For many seniors the best decision they make for their health and happiness is not to move at all, but to age gracefully in their current home.

ONESource is uniquely positioned to help. We can plan and coordinate basic home modifications to reduce your risks. We can help you make decisions about the personal services you need and structural changes your home needs to create a safe living environment. We can help you develop a budget and choose the contractors to install hand railings, ramps or chairlifts. We’ll be by your side as you choose the home services you need for personal and medical care.

At the same time, we’ll help you organize your home and eliminate clutter. When we’re done your home will feel larger, cleaner and safer.
