We specialize in downsizing seniors.

However, our services are available for people of any age who feel it is time to sort, thin, organize, repurpose, or donate items in their home. Not moving but want to declutter? We can help with that, too!

Free Consultation

We will conduct a free in-home assessment to learn about your specific goals and how we can best help achieve these goals. This process typically lasts 30 - 60 minutes. We'll evaluate each room in the home and provide you with an estimate of the cost of the services.

Customized Plan

Each move is like a fingerprint, so we will tailor our workdays to your timeline and needs. We will carefully create a customized floor plan for your new home to ensure your belongings can be situated just the way you like!


Sorting. Thinning. Organizing. Repurposing. We understand how overwhelming this process can be as many items in the home have emotional ties and memories. We will professionally pack your belongings and ensure your most valued possessions have the perfect spot in your new home. We will also assist you in making decisions on other belongings that may not be moving with you. We have many local resources we can utilize with this process such as charities, specialized thrift stores, estate sales specialists, auction houses, and/or liquidators.

Moving Day

We provide moving day supervision as well as last minute packing. If requested, we will gladly help unpack, organize each room, hang pictures, and/or hook up electronics to make you feel right at home. For any items intentionally left behind, we have professionals to help with this!


Moving can be one of the most overwhelming experiences, so we strive to reduce as much anxiety and stress for you as possible. Senior Move Services will be with you every step of the way by listening, communicating, and empathizing. We'll check in post-moving day to see how the transition went and if there is any further help we can offer.

Examples of our work


A move manager arranges appointments with estate sales specialists, home repair companies, junk removers, movers, realtors, resellers, senior care consultants, and social workers. They communicate with family members throughout the entire process. They may also design a floor plan, determine if temporary storage is needed, preserve the style and decor or the residents previous home, establish a moving timeline, help clients downsize, organize personal belongings, purchase moving supplies, and tour communities with clients. Anything that is required to move a loved one into their next chapter is covered by Senior Move Services.

Moving requires extensive planning and substantial physical exertion for a twenty-something moving into a one-bedroom apartment. Managing personal property that has been accumulated over multiple decades involves far more work. Hiring a senior move service with extensive experience will be more convenient, quicker, safer, and could potentially save you money from having to take time off of work. 

Yes, we help Mom choose the furniture to take (based on the floor plan), pack what moves forward with her and make arrangements for what’s left behind. We work with other move managers across the country to assure a seamless move. They can supervise furniture placement, unpack everything and put it away. We can arrange to have someone take Mom to the airport and stay with her until she boards the flight.

About half of the people in communities wait for the crisis before making the move. Consequently, they lose control of what they want to keep, give away or sell. Their losses are multiplying rapidly. Encourage them to begin making decisions while they have the energy to do so. Once a new home has been chosen, allow at least six weeks to prepare for moving day. 

Keep in mind that other people will have access to your apartment. We often take pictures of beloved items so that the picture is available to evoke the memory. Ask the children what they would like to have and then give it to them while you can watch them enjoy it. If you must bring the sterling silver and the priceless jewelry, bring a safe if the community doesn’t provide one in your apartment.

The simple answer is because we know firsthand the complexity of a move involving older adults. It’s hard and there are many steps you may not have considered before taking this on without help. We’re experts at helping older adults accept their needs for more support and finding ways to help them maintain some control over their lives. Our empathy, compassion, and training ensure positive experiences for seniors transitioning into a new, safe, and more manageable space.

Yes, SMS has years of experience with communities in the area and can provide recommendations to determine the best plan for your loved one. 

Observe Mom’s appearance and behavior. Bruises indicate a fall even if she denies it. Can she handle her finances or are bills going unpaid? Is there spoiled food in the refrigerator? Has the house become increasingly cluttered and dirty? Can she take her medications as prescribed? Does she know what to do in an emergency? 

For hoarding assistance to succeed, the hoarder must want to change. Simply going into the home and removing the clutter without the hoarder’s consent and assistance creates additional anxiety. This is a time-consuming process and often involves the help of an on-site psychologist. This is much more than a problem of Depression era thinking. The baby boomers, known for conspicuous consumption, will also find it challenging to downsize their possessions. 

Even when the client wants to make the move, it often takes about three months to become comfortable with the new surroundings. The communities tell us that our involvement in the transition process paves the way for a much easier transition. Moving day is much less chaotic when we organize it. We try to duplicate the look and feel of the former home as much as possible in order to reduce transition trauma. This is especially important for those who have dementia or Alzheimer’s.
