Estate Downsizing

When a client has lived a full life they can inadvertently accumulate a lot of sentimental belongings. When you or a loved one decides it’s time to move out of our family home into a smaller, more convenient home, you may find yourself overwhelmed with the amount of “stuff” around you. However, we know it isn’t just “stuff.” It’s years of important memories, keepsakes and traditions. Let us help you adjust your living space and belongings to improve your life. We work with our clients to navigate through those hard decisions, honoring their memories while helping them with embracing the future. When done properly, downsizing can be a great relief because our professional team will help prioritize what is most important and helpful in your next chapter of life.

We will provide any or all of the following services, tailored to fit your situation.

We can organize and declutter your home

Getting organized is an essential part of moving, but it’s also a way to create a safer, more comfortable living space if you plan to continue living in your home. Either way, we can help!

We can do ALL of the packing for your move

From sorting, to inventorying and packing,  we will carefully pack up all of your belongings for transport to your new living space. As part of this process, we create a complete floor plan to help you ensure that you are only bringing what you can fit into your new space. We also take photographs of everything before we pack to see how you have things arranged currently.

We can unpack and help you settle in

Using the photos we took prior to the packing phase, we unpack your things and place them right where you would expect to find them in your new space. We set everything up, from placing pictures on the wall to plugging in electronics and making sure they work. This minimizes disorientation and helps you get settled quickly and comfortably.

We can pack and ship give-aways to family and friends

Part of downsizing is making sure that special items find a meaningful new home. We’ll help you sort through everything and get those special items off safely to their new owners as designated by you.

We can arrange temporary rental space

Sometimes it’s just too hard to get rid of everything at once! When you know it won’t fit in your new place but you’re not ready to get rid of it yet, we can help you arrange for temporary storage while you decide what you’d like to do next with these extra items.

We can defray costs by helping you sell excess items

Inevitably, there are some items you no longer want or need that aren’t special enough to pass along to family members or friends. We can help you sell those items to assist in covering some of the cost the cost of your move.

We can handle unwanted item donations or disposal

Items that can’t be sold can be donated, recycled, or disposed of as needed. You’ll decide what fits this category, then we’ll take care of it all for you!

We can help with moving to a new home as well as in-house moves within retirement communities

Ready to move from one house to another? We’ve got you covered. Or perhaps you’re moving from one location within a retirement community to another. We can help with that, too. If you have a need for support with a senior transition, Moves Made Easier was created to simplify the process!
