Michelle’s helping hand for movers

MOVING house is widely know as one of the most stressful events people go through.

Couple that with being elderly, and the job requires a helping hand.

That’s why Michelle Park decided to train as a senior move manager and set up her own business, and she has just become the UK’s first member of the America-based National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM).

Michelle, director at The Yorkshire Move Manager limited, offers anything from just a little assistance to guiding and supporting from valuations to unpacking at the new property.

She said: “I have always worked in housing and really enjoy helping older people and being there to support them.

“When I realised that I could do both by helping them move house, I trained to become a senior move manager. I think it’s important that people dealing with older adults are fully trained and part of a professional body.”

Michelle, who’s firm is based at her Cleckheaton home, said she realised a growing gap in the move management market as more and more adults lead busier lives, often moving away from their parents.

Together with a growing older population, Michelle realised she could use her skills and expertise in housing to sensitively support older people in Yorkshire during a stressful and emotional time.

She wanted to align her company with a traders’ organisation and, with no such thing in the UK, she joined the NASMM.
