    When the big day arrives, we’ll make certain everything goes as smoothly as possible. You can go out for lunch with your family and leave the details to us.

    Our senior moving services include assistance with tasks such as:

    • Making sure the items you will need first are easily accessible
    • Boxing up last minute food items
    • Packing your wardrobe and bathroom items
    • Overseeing the movers to ensure a smooth transition

    • Plugging in and setting up electronic devices and appliances

    AFTER: Once the Big Move is Complete

    Once you and all of your belongings have arrived safely at your new home, we can continue to help you by:

    • Removing boxes, trash and recycling materials
    • Organizing cupboards and closets
    • Organizing important paperwork
    • Dispersing any belongings left behind in your old house

    No detail is too big or too small for our team to handle!

    Testimonials from our Clients

    Robin and her team are great! My mother had to unexpectedly sell her SCW home last May. I have been meaning to write a review ever sense. I had flown in to help pack and move her out, I met Robin and her team. They did an amazing job selling her belongings. Their staging of the sale was clean, well organized and in very good taste. I believe them to be honest and hard working. They took great care of all details with grace and dignity during this difficult and sensitive time. They went the extra mile to get things sold. Robin kept us informed after we had gone and paid up fairly. These ladies will not disappoint. If you need to hire sight-unseen you can not go wrong with this team! I would hire them again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much for absolutely everything Robin and gang! March 14, 2016

    I just wanted to take the time to thank you again for all you did for us.  We had so much going on and such a short time to do it all. ‘Smooth Transitions’ is the best name for what you do - the burden was lifted from our shoulders and gave us the freedom to do all the other things that had to be done and spend some time with my uncle (which was so important to me).  You took so much worry away and truly were a blessing. Instantly I felt like I had known you for a lifetime. Bless you and your team.

    What Makes for a Successful Sale?

    At Fab Finds, we consider a sale to be successful when the following conditions occur:

    • Items are visually appealing: When it comes to a sale, how it is presented matters. We create visually appealing displays designed to attract the buyer’s eye.
    • Impeccable customer service: Interacting with guests, answering questions correctly and creating a fun, friendly atmosphere is important. Our team keeps customer service at the forefront of every sale.
    • Good negotiating skills: Negotiating with prospective buyers can make a big difference to your bottom line. Our team skillfully works with potential buyers to net the best price for your items.
    • The house is empty and tidy: We know families who are downsizing or closing a home have a lot of details to worry about. Cleaning out the house after a sale is over isn’t one of them. We leave your house empty and tidy when we are finished. Should you request it, we can also refer you to one of our cleaning service partners.
    • Sale items are priced correctly: Too high means belongings and furniture might not sell. Too low and you leave money on the table at a time when a senior likely needs it most. Our team works hard to ensure that every item is priced correctly.
