Changing your house but not your home...
From Henry & Nancy at the Taylor Community:
Our involvement with Tailored Transitions was a very rewarding experience. The opportunity of working with a Move Management Company was very helpful and the personnel that we dealt with were very professional. They were easy to work with, fun to be around and energetic. With the help and guidance of Robin and Sarah, the process of moving went faster, was more organized and less stressful. The resulting move was very successful. We have moved many times in the past but this was our first time using this type of service and would highly recommend it.
From Bob at the Taylor Community:
In the course of my professional career, I have relocated a number of times. Moving is no fun. Placing your belongings in different spaces is a challenge.
Moving from a large house to a modest apartment is more of a challenge. Not only do you have to decide how to place your belongings, but you also have to decide what to keep and how to dispose of the belongings you don't keep. Tailored Transitions did a wonderful job in getting me and my wife relocated. They helped us make good decisions, they arranged for the disposal (consignment, gift or trash) of the unused belongings, they arranged for the move and they oversaw the placement of our belongings in our new apartment. They provided a very worthwhile service at a modest cost.
From Barbara at Meredith Bay Colony Club:
Dear Robin and Sarah,
It was a fortunate day for me when I picked up your brochure at MBCC. I was looking at what seemed to be a monumental move from my beloved house of 27 years to an apartment, from over 4,000 square feet to 1,500 - I didn't know where to start. The house had sold more quickly than I had anticipated. I had an already paid three week trip to Europe planned, and I had to be out!
You came in, assessed the situation, organized the movers, and went through each room systematically - do we keep it, donate it or sell it? You helped me make difficult decisions, and were always sensitive to my feelings. Now, I cannot imagine doing the move without you. You went to the new residence and arranged the rooms as close to what they had been, especially my beloved kitchen!
You never questioned my decisions about what to save or what to get rid of, even if some of my decisions must have seemed a bit daft! (However, I am using all the pasta equipment in a demo here at MBCC!)
You urged me to go on the trip, and relax, and it was the best thing in the world that I did.
Your organizing tips and checklists were invaluable, and one of the benefits of my move is that I made two new and very good friends!
Your innovative method of taking care of my 500+ collection of cookbooks was amazing. Finding those two bookcases in Tom's office and putting them in my walk-in closet was brilliant!
I cannot recommend you and your work more highly.
From Dawn at the Taylor Community:
I'm forever grateful for all you did with the moving process during an overwhelming time in my life.
With the loss of my husband, surgery, and sorting 36 years of my life's stuff, you both were my "angels".
You helped with your assisting and kept me focused. You kept me on schedule right through the move. And, you understood my worries with my cats. All went well with them.
The day of the move went very well. You planned out everything so well.
By unpacking and putting things away, you made my move-in wonderful. I could not have done this without you.
From Janet at the Taylor Community:
I used Tailored Transitions in another form. I used them as a support team. They were very good listeners. The downsizing was done on my own after my husband suffered a stroke.
There was a time when I had to face things on my own. Never wait for that "rainy day". It may never come. So while he was in the hospital and rehab I devoted two hours every day to sorting.
After 3 1/2 years of my husband's illness, we decided to move. We met with Robin and Sarah. They were so warm to us - like we had known them for years. They eased my mind and my husband saw me less stressed.
All the packing was done by these two girls three days before we moved. Pictures were taken from the rooms so setting up in our new place ran very smoothly. They came with their boxes, tape and magic markers.
A floor plan was made out of paper furniture (measured and cut to scale) and I was able to put the furniture where I wanted it for each room. The kitchen cabinets and china closet were photographed so everything could be put in the way it was, and everything looked "like home".
In two hours we were relocated into our new home. The beds were set up, all complete with linens. My husband's hospital bed was last to go onto the truck and the first to come off and that was set up first so he would have a place to lie down.
I just sat on the couch and watched them unpack. All the boxes were taken away and a final vacuum job was done.
Oh! By the way, we moved on Halloween. The ladies came as Batman and Robin and the movers came as The Village People.
It was a wonderful day which I will never forget.
A warm thank you to Robin and Sarah.
From June at the Taylor Community:
This is the best system I have ever seen...I do nothing and you do the work. Just tell you what you want to take. It is great to walk in and everything is done for you. You will not be sorry that you used them. The girls were very good.
Thank you. I wanted to call you and thank you for your Christmas card and the bag of goodies you left me at the door. It was very good. Again, I like the job that you did on my Curio.
Wondering what people are saying about us? Look no further!
