Frequently Asked Questions

How is Smooth Transitions different from a moving company?

Many seniors have a 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 responsibilities and 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.

We do everything the moving company does not do.  We are there to provide the emotional, organizational and physical support of all the tasks that need to be done before, during, and after move day.  We are not the moving company but we do everything else.

Why is moving seniors different?

When a senior moves, they are usually downsizing.  They don’t take everything with them.  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 once 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 comes into play.
