BROWN LOGISTICS SOLUTIONS, INC. LAUNCHES DOWNSIZING AND MOVING SERVICES DIVISION FOR EMPTY NESTERS AND SENIORS

COLUMBUS, OHIO, December 12, 2016 – Brown Logistics Solutions, Inc., a privately-owned Columbus-based third party logistics company, announced the roll-out of its new division, Lifestyle Transitions Solutions, LLC, that will provide residential move management services to empty nesters and seniors.  

“In Greater Columbus, households with adults 65 and older are expected to grow by 56% from 2010 to 2030,” stated Robert Hunt, President of Brown Logistics Solutions, referring to research that has been conducted by the Scripps Gerontology Center at Miami University as well as other studies. “Our services are designed to make downsizing and moving into smaller quarters, such as senior living communities, easy and affordable,” he continued.

Lifestyle Transitions Solutions’ services include downsizing and decluttering, moving, shipping, short-term storage, management of charitable donations, shredding, auctions and online sales, and estate dispersals. 

“While other senior move management companies in the region provide similar services, there are several things that set us apart,” said Deanna DeSmet, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “’Many companies in the industry outsource the actual moving services to other companies, but these services as well as all others that are mission-critical to our clients’ moves will be handled in house. This, combined with 
Brown’s extensive experience in residential moves and use of best practices can reduce costs as well as the risk of errors and damages.”

Brown, which was established in Columbus in 1914, entered the household moving industry after World War II and served as an agent for National Van Lines and North American Van Lines. The company has more than 50 years of residential moving experience as well as several assets, including a large fleet of trucks, a 151,000 square foot warehouse, shipping and packing expertise through its Pak Mail franchise, and a team of experienced professionals.

“We have helped thousands of Columbus’ residents move into their new homes and look forward to serving the unique needs of empty nesters and seniors with our comprehensive senior move management services,” Hunt said.
