Downsizing? Moving? When in Transition, Call the Experts

If you are planning to put your home on the market next spring, or move to a new location, now is the time to start the process.

At Caring Transitions®, we support people who are in the midst of personal transitions. By “transitions” we usually mean the kind of life changing situations that have an effect on your current residence.  Whether someone is moving or downsizing due to job change, marriage, divorce, illness or retirement, we are among the first resources to contact for help and advice.

Caring Transitions

Our services were developed specifically for people navigating life transitions. That person might be you, your family members or your clients. On a daily basis we help those who are too busy, too overwhelmed, or simply unable to manage unwieldy projects like decluttering a basement, packing household contents or clearing the contents of an entire home. To put it simply, when people don’t know where to begin, they begin by calling us.

Senior Transitions

As the nation’s senior move expert, Caring Transitions® specializes in supporting older adults and their families through late life transitions. Changes in late life include a variety of events such as moving from a family home to assisted living, moving Mom from hospital to nursing home or navigating the liquidation of an estate. No matter the situation, Caring Transitions® relies on our professional network of caregivers to support the medical needs of clients while we handle the physical asset management details.

Our job is to help reduce stress by sorting, organizing, packing, donating, and selling personal property that will no longer be used or needed. We are there to take on the tasks that most others haven’t really thought about. When working in the home of older adults, it is fairly common to find us sorting through decades of accumulated household goods that may be found in closets, sheds, basements and attics.

Holidays are coming. Now might be a great time to pass along some of those heirlooms. Gifting to family and friends is appropriate for some of those cherished, or even unused, items they may want or need.

We advise families of their options and do our best to honor the financial and sentimental value of each item. As the largest and most trusted resource in the nation for relocation, downsizing and estate liquidation, we work to establish what might be sold or donated and what will be carefully packed and unpacked for storage or relocation.

Family Transitions

There are many other reasons for families to experience a “home transition.” Whether moving due to job promotion, upsizing, downsizing, change of assignment, marriage or divorce, Caring Transitions® is there to support families of every shape and size through all the details. As the only residential relocation resource with a national footprint, we help organize and pack families at their point of origin and provide unpacking and resettlement services at their final destination. We partner with a professional network of movers and realtors to create a seamless and stress-free experience for each and every client.

When selling a home, the desire is to get the best value for it, and for the home to sell quickly and easily. Whether you are living in the home during the listing period, or intend to move and then sell, we can help. Decluttering and staging for appeal to prospective buyers is also what we do. We help by packing and storing non-essential items, which also makes less to do at the time of the move.

Families who contact us for a free in-home estimate before they finalize move plans may reduce their moving expense by getting valuable advice on liquidation, home repairs, movers, storage, junk removal, and other partner services.

We are sensitive to “why” the move is happening, the circumstances and the emotions involved in big changes in the lives of our clients. We do as much or as little as they need to help with the stress of what can be a major event in life. Transitions do not need to be horrific, with help. That’s why we do what we do. Call us today at 208-449-2711 for your free in-home estimate.
