February 2017:   WEST COUNTRY BRANCH OPENS 

 The West country branch of Seamless Relocation have started delivering moving home services.   Carole and Tom Smyth bring these wonderful services to Devon and surrounds.   Based in Exeter this expert qualified duo come from Occupational Therapy and Mental Health Services backgrounds.  Their experience of understanding physical and mental health needs means they are highly suited to helping individuals and families cope with the emotional and practical difficulties associated with moving home in later life. Carole and Tom also have considerable experience of working with both statutory and voluntary organisations. They can be contacted locally on 01392 273067 (answerphone), or via the head office number 020 8621 3553 or email info@seamlessrelocation.com

 

January 2017: OWCH (Older Women’s Cooperative Housing) is a group of women over fifty who have created their own community in a new, purpose-built block of flats in North London. The OWCH complex has 17 owner occupied flats and 8 which are for social rent. 

 
Finally, the complex is complete and Seamless Relocation were able to help OWCH members into their new homes. The last few exhausting and anxious months have taken their toll on many of the community and there is great relief as each person moves in.   The moving process has spanned months and many have downsized from large homes with a life time of possessions, so there have been difficult decisions to make along the way.   Seamless have helped with various aspects of moving home – selling, planning, arranging change of address letters, floorplans of furniture etc.   Much of the planning has involved close liaison between the OWCH members, relocation task group and with various removal companies.
 
  It has been an emotional and difficult time for members as completion dates have been uncertain.  Seamless has been supportive and professional to keep the members going to the end.
 
The OWCH treasurer said “It was a wonderful choice to have you to help us with moving in and helping with the scheduling  - we realise how much you did to make it all go smoothly.” 
 
Another OWCH client commented  “Seamless Relocation have from the beginning been extremely professional, sympathetic to my needs and supportive. In fact, everything you could wish for”
 
 Here are a couple of keen Seamless personnel at the end of moving in day with a very relieved client!
