Smooth Transitions of St. Louis provides move management services by coordinating all the details of your move. We specialize in “Senior Moves”. Offering a number of services, our goal is to ease stress while doing as little or as much as you and your family need. Our experience will save time making your move a Smooth Transition.
Smooth Transitions offers individuals and families pre-planning, providing direction for future dispersal of personal and household belongings.
Smooth Transitions is designed to finalize challenges that seniors and their family members can’t or don’t want to do. It can mean a consulting session for those who can do some of the things themselves or doing each step of the move from start to finish. Smooth Transitions can do as little or as much as required.
DOWNSIZING, SORTING, RIGHT SIZING
Each situation is different and Smooth Transitions is available to help as little or as much as needed. It might be providing directions for family members to do the work yourselves or more comprehensive assistance. Sometimes selecting a place to move, packing, moving, unpacking and getting rid of the leftovers can seem overwhelming.
For out-of-town family members, Smooth Transitions provides peace of mind that someone is coordinating your family member’s affairs with the personal attention you would provide.
We take the hassle out of move day by booking the movers in advance and providing move day coordination ensuring your furniture is cared for and placed accordingly.
PACKING AND UNPACKING
Our professional staff are well trained in packing for local and long distance moves. Leave it to us, and we will provide all of the necessary packaging materials. After we unpack, we put everything away and can organize, make beds and hang pictures if needed!
Smooth Transitions also provides services for the dispersal of household belongings after the death of a loved one.
A death in the family introduces a whole new set of responsibilities, from removing personal belongings to the compete shutdown of an established home site. Daily responsibilities or distances can make these tasks seem even more overwhelming.
Smooth Transitions can help make these tasks feasible and timely. Working under the direction of family members, attorneys or trust officers, we organize and distribute the estate according to your family member’s wishes. From the most simple sorting to arrangements for cleaning and repair work, taking the pressure off already trying times is as easy as a phone call.
Charges are based on hourly rates plus expenses. A deposit is required at time of contract. Frequently items leftover in the home that are sold cover the costs of Smooth Transitions services.
