Whatcom County business offers senior-moving service


A Whatcom County company is offering a new service for seniors who are downsizing to a smaller residence. Terry Bronkema has added the senior-moving service to his auction and appraisal business, Bronkema Auction Service.

Bronkema's crew will sort, pack, move, and set everything up in their client's new home, whether they are moving to a smaller home, an assisted living facility or into the home of a loved one.

During the downsizing process, Bronkema's crew also can asses the value of unwanted belongings and sell them on behalf of the client, with the extra income often shared with the family or used to offset the cost of relocating.

"We leave the property 'broom ready,' including garages and any outbuildings," Bronkema said in a news release. "This allows seniors to quickly put their home on the market, or hand the property off to new owners. It is our goal to make the whole downsizing and moving process as simple and stress-free as possible for seniors and their loved ones."
