On June 5, 2018, Buck and Eileen Gatewood moved from a community in south Charlotte, N.C., to Windsor Run, the newest Erickson Living community located in Matthews, N.C.

In the months leading up to their move, the couple worked closely with Windsor Run Personal Moving Consultant Rachel Gilbert, who visited the couple in their house armed with resources proved to make the moving process as stress-free as possible.

“During her visit, we discussed what items would fit into our new Windsor Run home, the [deluxe two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath with den] Weston,” says Buck. “With that information, we drew a detailed layout of how the furniture was to be placed in each room, making sure all the individual pieces fit properly.”

“We also wanted to make sure that our special art collection was moved carefully,” says Eileen. “Rachel helped us move the collection, as well as some small, fragile items, a few days prior to the arrival of our furniture. That gave us peace of mind knowing that our valuable, personal items were safe and secure.”

Seasoned professionals

To facilitate the move, Gilbert also provided the couple with a list of preferred realtors, senior move companies, and moving professionals, each carefully screened for the top-notch services they provide.

“Everyone was outstanding,” says Buck. “Our mover handled all of our belongings carefully and professionally. We used a senior move company that not only packed for us but also met the moving company at our new home to direct the placement of furniture, boxes, and other household items. All of our essential items were unpacked that first afternoon and our bed was put together, allowing us to sleep peacefully and securely in a well-functioning new home the night of our move. That was very comforting to us.”

Since moving to Windsor Run, the Gatewoods couldn’t be happier with their decision.

“We are constantly telling our friends and family members how happy we are living at Windsor Run,” says Buck. “Rachel and her team were so helpful throughout our move; we recommend her highly. She will help make your move to this wonderful community a happy, stress-free event. It will put you in a great frame of mind, ready to enjoy your new life.”
