Downsizing Help

Perhaps a move is in order. The house feels empty and too big now that the kids have left and started families of their own. It’s a lot of maintenance and is costly to insure. You’d like to move to a spot that has less square footage and is easier to keep up. Let us help you go through your belongings in a way that allows you to let go of items without letting go of the memories.

We provide:

  • Experienced guidance for selecting which items to keep, sell, disburse, or donate
  • Downsizing sessions catered to our clients’ schedules
  • Sorting, boxing, and tagging of collections and items for dispersal
  • Shipping of sentimental items to loved ones
  • Recommendations for auction, estate sales, consignment, and other means of profitable dispersal
  • Handling of donations and documentation for tax deductions

Custom Floor Plans

Think of the custom floor plan as your road map for a successful move. Measuring your furniture and new rooms makes it clear what can fit nicely and what won’t. Plus, it can save you time and money if the floor plan is shared with your moving crew. They will work more efficiently if they know ahead of time the correct room and proper placement of the furniture.

Our expertise in interior decorating shines through during this process. We pride ourselves in finding creative ways to make the new environment reflect you, your history, and your aesthetic. We love the “big reveal.” When our clients walk in for the first time and see their furniture and accessories unpacked and in place, the smiles and tears of relief and joy are priceless!

Let us help your new home feel and look like home again.

You receive:

  • A scaled floor plan outlining the placement of your furniture
  • Tagging and labeling of furniture and accessories prior to move day
  • An inventory of items to move
  • A digital floor plan that can be shared with family

Liquidation Planning

It’s amazing how important our possessions become! Items accumulated or given to us remind us of events and relationships that became so familiar and cherished over time.

At Transition With Care, we understand that life-changing events can happen suddenly and unexpectedly. This makes letting go of a lifetime of memories even more challenging.

Our compassionate team is experienced at helping clients retain belongings that are needed and those that have the most meaning, while rehoming the items that are not a good fit.

We also understand that time is of the essence. As a result, we strive to make the dispersal process as efficient and lucrative as possible for our clients.

Turn to us to assist with:

  • Discovery and documentation of all items in the home
  • Recommendations for optimal methods of dispersal and best local providers
  • Ongoing communication with client, family, and third-party providers
  • Organizing, tagging, and preparing items for transfer
    • Family or friends
    • Temporary storage
    • Estate sale
    • Auction
    • Consignment
    • Charitable donation
    • Trash hauling

If your loved one has passed away and you need help liquidating the estate and clearing out the contents to prepare the home for sale, give us a call at 704-945-7108. If you are part of the “sandwich generation” (working and raising children) or live far away, we can coordinate the process so you don’t have to take time off or make a costly trip to Charlotte. If time is an issue, no problem. We can expedite our services for you.
