Joan London with Senior Moving Company Employees - July 2013Whether you're moving into senior housing, as I am, sending your grandchild a package or returning an item that needs repacking, selecting the correct packaging and method of shipment is critical. For this post, I'll share what I've learned from downsizing my entire condo and sending nearly 40 boxes to my 3 children on the West Coast.

If you are moving to or from senior housing in the Greater Los Angeles area, contact Green Lane Senior Relocations. Serving seniors throughout Los Angeles and Ventura counties, Green Lane is a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers. and I invite you to share your moving and senior housing experiences in the comments below.
