Moving made easy with McCarthy & Stone in Ipswitch
If you're over 70 and thinking about moving, but are worried about the stress involved, McCarthy & Stone, the market leader in later living, is providing a free personal moving service at its new Assisted Living development, Booth Court in Ipswich, to take away much of the hassle and cost of downsizing in later life.
The retirement developer's Moving Experience initiative offers one-to-one support and professional advice covering every stage of their house move, from packing and removals right down to notifying people of their change of address.
Anyone reserving off plan at Booth Court can benefit from the complimentary service. Purchasers will be assigned their own Professional Advisor. One-to-one meetings can take place in the comfort of your own home or location of your choice, where the Professional Advisor will explain all elements of the service and discuss their personal requirements.
The comprehensive service includes practical and financial help with the sale of your existing property, liaison with solicitors on your behalf and a full de-cluttering, packing and removals service. The Professional Advisor will also be on hand on the day they move in to ensure everything goes smoothly.
McCarthy & Stone will even provide a free and confidential financial health check and provide a handyman service for the first month after you move in.
Gill Sabin, Regional Sales and Marketing Director, says the service is second-to-none and can offer real peace of mind for both purchasers and their families. She comments: "Moving Experience offers invaluable support and advice throughout the process, from the time you market your existing home to the day you settle in to your new McCarthy & Stone apartment. Moving house can be a daunting prospect at any time of life but by providing Professional Advisors who can offer a truly bespoke service, we aim to make the experience a relaxing and enjoyable one."
