Do you only move seniors?

No. We help those of all ages that are downsizing, need to declutter, or need to relocate. We have handled all types of moves from corporate moves to students moving in and out of dorm rooms.

It is great that you are thinking about your future and the future of your loved ones. Taking the time to plan when you are in charge is a valuable gift to yourself and your family. Smooth Transitions is the perfect choice to help you with these needs.

Why is moving seniors different?

When seniors move, they are usually downsizing. There is more to downsizing than packing and moving boxes. These seniors will need to work with many different companies when relocating. Most people only downsize one or twice, so the needed resources are not known. Anticipating the large amount of time, planning, organizing and physical work involved to move a home can often times be overwhelming and paralyzing for the senior and/or their family. This is where the Senior Move Manager can help. 

How is Smooth Transitions different from a moving company?

Many seniors have lived in their home for a lifetime. They've raised families and are surrounded by special memories, precious heirlooms, and family history. Suddenly, the home they once loved is now overwhelming with responsibliities and is difficult to live in. When a decision is made for a senior to relocate to a smaller home or new town, many seniors will need assistance. Assistance is what Smooth Transitions can provide. We will help the senior decide what to take with them, what to give to family, and what to donate. Then, we will take care of all of the details to make sure those precious items are handled as desired. After packing what has been selected to keep, we will make put it into the hands of the mover to handle the items with care, and then we will unpack for the senior in the new home.
