About Smooth Transitions

This moving company founder, Barbara H. Morris, saw that there was an enormous need for compassionate and professional transition when helping her own family move from home to independent living. In 1995, she took her 20 years of experience in the health care industry and brought that same level of compassion and professionalism to the mover. Since then, she has spread the Smooth Transitions brand internationally. She personally trains each location’s owner, and provides ongoing education through the Smooth Transitions Academy. Her leadership and exemplary service has been recognized by the National Association of Senior Move Managers, who presented her with their most prestigious award, The Margit Novack Award of Excellence.

Smooth Transitions Reviews

Richard and his team were a true blessing for my clients! They were very diligent and careful with my clients belongings. Communicated with all parties during the process and left the home clean as expected. I highly recommend Richard and Smooth Transitions! 5 Stars is not enough! Thank you!
- Amanda Alves

I can't say enough about Smooth Transitions. They were a life saver! My parents moved from independent living to assisted living and Smooth Transitions handled everything. What a great experience. Richard was very professional and easy to work with. Stephanie organized the move and was amazing in making it all happen. Thank you for such a great experience. I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Smooth Transitions!
- Lisa Litz

I give this company more than five ,they deserve ten stars .They were very professional and caring . They were prompt, on time did there job especially well and I would recommend them to anyone. I will definitely use them again..
- Don Gilbert

We found out about Smooth Transitions from friends at our church. I didn't quite know what to expect but have been so pleased with the work that Karen and her group Keelie, Stephanie, Nelson and Lawana have done. They packed all of our things and had movers bring the furniture and boxes. Then they set up our house while we were out for the day. I could not have made the move without their help. They are friendly and caring about doing an excellent job of packing to avoid anything breaking. I would highly recommend them to seniors who need help with a move.
- Gail Scruggs

Truly, the client is King for all Smooth Transitions personnel serving us. From Richard Miller at the top to the interim packers, movers and cleanup crew, we were treated royally. Our senior move manager, Karen Wellspeak, coordinated the project from inventory to floor planning our furniture making insightful suggestions as to what to keep or find a new home. She was always mindful of our limitations and patient. She had a wealth of ideas and opportunities. Sorting items and packing with care and purpose made our smooth transition possible The “Reveal” for our new home with stunning. Furniture was well arranged and welcoming. Pictures are hung artfully artistically with awareness of our preference sensed subtly by the team. As we made a significant downsizing and given limited space available, dinnerware, pots, pans, serving pieces, clothes, electronics were thoughtfully placed in the new home. Service did not quit then. A few small imperfections were quickly fixed. They followed through on cleanup of the old home and arranged for transport of remaining furniture and boxes to family in another state and helped rearrange a few pictures four months after the Reveal. Promises were kept. Smooth Transitions is the right name for this multifaceted team. We could not have done it without them.

★★★★★ all I can say....From the first meeting with Richard until the final clean out of her old place, this is a well run business. I had tears well up when I walked into my mom's new apartment with her. I wanted to hug Stephanie but with Covid I couldn't. It was set up beautifully. Stephanie was the project manager and was so professional, kind, compassionate, helpful, respectful and has great integrity. She was also very flexible with changes to our move that were pretty major, but she just figured out a new layout based on the new apartment we were assigned and rolled effortlessly with us. She organized her team so efficiently on move in day and had the place ready for the big reveal a couple hours earlier than expected....The people at the apartment complex were amazed at how efficient they were and couldn't believe how it was all set up with pictures hung and flowers on the counter. Keeley was also a big help in the packing and unpacking and she was also very sweet and respectful. They both took the time to ask mom if she wanted to look at pictures before they packed them which was a great touch. They helped us take stuff back to our car or unload our car.....whatever we needed they offered to help. I would highly recommend this company for moving your elderly family or for yourself if you are looking to downsize. SECOCOND REVIEW...background. mom was supposed to move into assisted living in July but due to Covod the final Medicare inspections and certifications were delayed. We had already given notice and had her place mostly packed so The Reserve provided an independent living apartment for her. We used Smooth Transitions for the first move as indicated in the above review. Well we were finally able to move my mom into assisted took an additional 2.5 months for The Reserve to get all the certifications. Smooth Transitions said they would be available to mom again when her AL room was ready and they did. It was very dynamic and we got daily updates from The Reserve, but we could only guess at move in dates. Smooth Transitions was flexible and had to juggle several moves that week and they did it effortlessly. Mom had a hard time adjusting to the last move so we tried to make this second move as seemless as possible. We took her to the beach for several days and Richard and Stephanie provided resources so the team was able to pack and move mom in one day. They are remarkable and strive to make each move as smooth as possible. They tailor each move to each client so they can meet specific needs. They have compassion and are so organized and are just amazing. If you are downsizing yourself or a family member I would highly recommend this company. I cant say enough about them.

Moving from my home for the past 27 years to a 55+ community apartment was a daunting task. I hired Smooth Transitions after being introduced to them at a lunch and learn. Their priorities were first me,my belongings second. Karen, Keely and Stephanie helped me make decisions concerning “does it stay?” or “does it go to the apartment?”. Their downsizing experience and knowledge was invaluable. There were one to three packers packing all items to go at the same time decisions were being made. On move day the movers moved all my belongings and the team unpacked and placed everything in it’s place. All I had to do was arrive for the big “reveal”. My new home looked as if interior designers had created the finished product. My art was hung and my TVs mounted to the wall. Beds were made and closets arranged, just to mention a couple of the finishing touches. All items and furniture left behind were also dealt with by Smooth Transition. I highly recommend using them for your next move.
- Donna Jones

We were very pleased with how seamlessly the move for my parents went. Karen and every employee went above and beyond, always being very professional and considerate. I believe we moved my parents within five days of our first contact with Richard! They made it so much less stressful and the cost was truly affordable. We could focus on the emotional concerns for my folks instead of the logistics of furniture. They set up the room to look remarkably close to the three room suite they came from so that it felt like home.
- Debbie Dunn

They are amazing! We've used them 3 times and they have been so helpful and efficient.
- Sharon Lill

My folks were very happy with the move Smooth Transitions provided for them when they moved into their retirement community. Stephanie & her assistants/team were careful during the packing & setup of the furniture in their "new home". We recommend them wholeheartedly for a "smooth transition"!
- Carol Wakely

I cannot say enough about Smooth Transitions. This wonderful team led by Richard, helped move my mother into a memory care facility-and the move was flawless! They were all very kind and compassionate to my mom and to me. They were very professional every step of the way. They took pictures, made computer models, and planned and executed her move in a timely manner. I loved that the pictures were hung and all of mom's things were placed just as she liked them the day of the reveal! When my mom passed away-the team helped once again to clean out her place and pack things away. They handled moving the donated items for us as well as the items for sale. It was a difficult time for our family, and Smooth Transitions made it much more bearable. I highly recommend this company. Call them today!
- Jeanelle Lovett

Smooth Transitions did a great job. Karen Wellspeak was very efficient and compassionate. I could not have done this without them.
- Kriena Nederveen

Having just completed a move with a wonderful team of folks at Smooth Transitions, I can honestly say I've never had a better move in my life -- and I have moved at least 35 times in my lifetime. Starting with Richard the owner and president, followed by Stephanie, Karen, Melton, Nelson and Kathleen, this team worked with dedication and purpose and had a total focus on providing the best customer service possible. They planned, executed and completed an entire household move in just over two days -- it was flawless. I highly recommend this company, especially for seniors, who need to downsize and move to a small home. The best move of my life without a doubt.
- Russ Price

I highly recommend Smooth Transitions, Richard, and their amazing staff Keeley and Karen. Richard and his staff were an amazing help to me and I could not have accomplished on my own what they did for me. They helped move my mother into a senior apartment and were very patient and understanding in this difficult transition. After she passed away, Smooth Transitions helped in preparation for listing the home for sale. They removed every single item from the house, sorted what could be sold as well as donated. They discarded what couldn't be used by others. They saved the things I missed that looked important or meaningful. They were very responsive and flexible, easy to work with, and I do not know what I would have done if I had not found them.
- Bryan Patterson

I hadn't known about Smooth Transitions but was referred by my real estate agent. I met with Richard Miller and he thoroughly explained my options and introduced me to Stephanie Ozinga, my Move Project Manager. She was professional, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. In fact, in retrospect I wish I had done more with her to go through more of my possessions to help me determine what to keep, to give away, to donate, to sell, or scrap! A wonderful part of the service was the creation of an interactive floor plan from my actual floor plan, incorporating my actual furniture. It was a great help. And the best part was her managing the actual move. Yes, this is a pricey service, but when you are downsizing, and are moving into your last home, it is worth every penny. I give them my highest recommendation.
- diane baron

My family had been struggling to navigate a difficult downsize and move of our elderly parents, until we found Richard Miller and Smooth Transitions. Not only did they take care of EVERYTHING but Richard, Karen, Stephanie and the entire crew made it seem effortless. This company is incredible!!
- Emily Procter

Smooth Transitions made my downsizing move almost stress free. Stephanie and her team coordinated with the moving company. By the time I arrived to my new apartment that afternoon, the boxes were unpacked, cabinets and closets organized, pictures hung and boxes gone. Even the bed was made and towels were hanging in the bathroom! I was able to enjoy my new apartment without the hassle of moving in.
- Signe Lund

I have worked with several Senior Move Managers over the years and Smooth Transitions is truly exemplary and the best in their field. The amount of care and involvement they have in helping their clients is something that can’t be manufactured. Richard, Karen, Stephanie, and Keely truly put their heart and soul into their work, and it shows with every happy client who completes a move without an ounce of stress. These guys (and gals) are real life miracle workers!
- Jackson Carrubba

I can't say enough about the care, time and hard work put in by Keely, Stephanie and the entire Smooth Transitions team to get my mom moved. As if the prospect of moving from her hometown of 81 years was not daunting enough, she also had the uncertainty and concern brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. I don't think she slept the night before her first meeting with the Smooth Transitions team, but when I spoke with her after they left that day, I could hear in her voice a great sense of relief and ease. Keely and Stephanie handled the issues with the moving company that I booked like pros and with great care and concern, and they went above and beyond to make sure that the move stayed on track. We highly recommend Smooth Transitions! There is no way we could have done this without them!
- Rob Futrell

Stephanie. Richard and their crew were awesome. Very patient, understanding, and helpful. We could not have done this without their kindness and help. Its very difficult to downsize but they made that task much easier for us. I have and will continue to reccommend them to our friends. Thank you so much Smooth Transitions for making our transition smooth. You guys are the best!!
- Andrew Schmitt

I worked with the team at Smooth Transitions in order to help my parents move into a new community from their home of 52 years. I understand fully well the anxiety that can come with this giant life transition. Richard and Karen made us feel like all would be taken care of from beginning to end. And I can tell you with certainty that ALL was taken care of from beginning to end. My parents are now in their new home and even though my father suffers from no cognitive issues, I'm not sure he even knows his recliner, side table and TV are in a new location. 🙂 It's like they picked up their entire living situation (pictures, furniture, loved items) and just positioned them somewhere where my parents are just a little safer and taken care of.
- Michael Stickney

This company did a FANTASTIC job moving my mother out of her home of 20 years into a retirement community. They think of everything, are thoughtful and courteous, and worth every penny of what we paid them (and then some). They are detailed-oriented to the max and very customer-centric -- Wow! I recommend them without hesitation.
- Alex Counts

Smooth Transitions went above and beyond in helping me with my client's move. Every small detail was attended to. My client was very anxious about moving and Karen helped reassure her every step of the way. Karen decorated my client's new apartment beautifully and my client was beyond thrilled. I can not recommend Smooth Transitions enough!
- Lynda Crain

Stephanie took a detail inventory of our furniture and other items to be placed in our new house, entered the inventory information and our new home layout into an amazing automated system and was able to tell us what would fit and where in the new house. We were able to work with her to try different options. It was totally helpful for packing, loading and unloading the truck on move day. We were easily able to identify what items and boxes went where! Thanks Smooth Transitions. You are talented and caring people.
- Sue Weems

I can't find the words to express my family's appreciation and gratitude for the professionalism and care Richard, Stephanie and crew took during our mother's transition to a new home. There were no surprises and communication was clear and frequent - greatly reducing our worries during such a stressful time. Pricing options are flexible and very fair depending on level of service needed. I highly recommend contacting the team to learn more about their range of services and how they can help your family.
- Molly Thompson

Very impressed with the professionalism of Smooth Transitions! I had my my hands fulls coordination between multiple entities and was dealing with a lot of unknowns while trying to clear out the apartment of a departed friend, Richard and Karen came through managing the move seamlessly. They are easy to work with. The communication was prompt, the attitude was always pleasant and friendly, they were punctual and came equipped with all needed supplies and the pricing was clear and fair. What stood out also was the genuine care they took to see it to closure while negotiating through some challenges faced along the way. Very glad to have met them and wish them the best as they continue to grow their business. Highly recommended!
