OUR SERVICES

We understand the demanding and busy schedules of working individuals and families. We can handle advance work for newcomers before you arrive in town or follow-up tasks after you depart.

A Lighter Move is particularly skilled in assisting older adults and their families . We understand the health and lifestyle issues that often accompany residence changes. We have a number of tools to assist with maintaining a sense of equilibrium in chaotic times, scaling furnishings to meet lifestyle and in preserving memories in meaningful ways.

Our floor plans will give your living space an open, fresh look. Staged homes sell 70% faster – we can help. We also can assist with scaling back on things to be moved and help you achieve greater cost savings.

A phone call or email will get you started. We look forward to the pleasure of serving you.
