NASMM Welcomes New Industry Partner: Accelerated International
Accelerated International “Where every move is personal”, is our motto, and that is how we treat our clients. We move lives. We deliver. Accelerated International coordinates the movement of household goods and personal belongings both domestically and internationally.

We pride ourselves on:

  • Integrity
  • Technology
  • Expertise
  • Customer Service
  • Quality
  • Communication
  • Flexibility

We understand that moving can be trying for everyone. Beside our team's training in very "hand-holding" type of customer service, our president has developed amazing technology, we call that "WorldLink". With our system we are able to manage moves with the greatest efficiency and organization, all staff have full visibility of every detail of a move, ensuring a prompt response. Plus this technology allows us to be quick in our quoting response time, and up to the moment load availability for all moves.

As licensed Freight Forwarders – we have many years of experience relocating individuals internationally. As US Truck Brokers – we have many options for domestic/long distance moving, especially for those smaller moves, that typically get lost in the shuffle, or shuttled off one truck to another before making it to its final destination.

Our team leaders are of the baby boomer generation. We understand aging "self" and parents. We are compassionate towards the TLC needed. Working alongside Senior Move Managers is the perfect match for us. Contact Janice Turner at 917-863-0043 or

NASMM Launches New Online Marketplace
NASMM is pleased to announce the launch of our brand new Online market place — an online store that provides a one-stop-shop for accessing over a million products and services from a diverse portfolio of supplier partners.

These products and services offer aggressively negotiated pricing and terms and conditions than most of our members could likely secure on their own. And when you shop the NASMM eMarketplace, the suppliers return a modest portion of their profits back to NASMM, providing valuable funding toward fulfilling our collective mission.

The eMarketplace has features and functions designed to save you time and money:

  • Catalog-based search function lets you buy like a procurement professional
  • User-created shopping lists provide easy access to commonly purchased items
  • Powerful reporting tools help you better manage spending
  • Single checkout process makes it quick and easy to buy from multiple suppliers

To begin shopping, simply visit the "Business Solutions" page of "MyNASMM" and click on the NASMM Marketplace option.

The New Aging Dilemma, Growing Older at Home Alone
There's a hidden segment of the older adult population that the healthcare industry has recently spotted. It's the aging single group of people 55 and over.
