Because it's more than just a's a life transition

No matter if you are downsizing or rightsizing, moving into a retirement community, relocating mom and dad or transitioning a loved one into assisted living or memory care, they all have similar elements of an emotional and many times stressful transition into a new stage of life.

Smooth Transitions South Sound provides senior move management and concierge services to individuals, families and businesses. We are not a moving company. We are just like having that extra daughter, local relative, friend or project manager that provides the personalized assistance you need before, during and after the transition from one home to another.       

Working with our clients to shoulder the emotional and physical burdens often associated with senior moving transitions, we can manage and handle just about any aspect that's involved except physically relocating your belongings. That part is best left to the moving company experts. Of course since we are professional move managers, we have trusted moving company's we partner with that we can recommend!

If it's time for a transition into a new stage of life and you find that dealing with some or all of the aspects of the move overwhelming, please call or email us and check out our site for details on how we can help you with a stress free moving experience.

"Rather than downsizing, let's talk about "clearing" and "composing." As we excavate the layers of our former life, we must clear a space, by getting rid of the baggage that has weighed us down—physically, emotionally and spiritually—for too long. We must also discover the creative process that allows us to feel empowered; that makes good use of our accumulated experience; our hard earned wisdom; that harvests our memories of pleasure, fulfillment, and joy".  How to Think About Downsizing Your Life -SARA LAWRENCE-LIGHTFOOT


Thanks to Smooth Transitions! They are truly a god send . Ruth and her crew worked so hard cleaning out my mom”s home after she moved out. Fifty some years worth of stuff. I didn’t even know where to look for help with this huge project . So glad I found her! I would highly recommend them for any help with a transition like ours was. Truly trust worthy and they are special people for a very delicate and special kind of job like ours was .

Regarding the work of Smooth Transitions at the home of my father...we are most pleased with the work done...being out-of-town put us at such a disadvantage. Both realtors commented on your quality work at the closing

About Me

Hi! I'm Ruth Christian owner of Smooth Transitions South Sound and a logistics "lifer" so to speak. My professional background spans over 35 years managing the movement of goods for the largest and most highly recognized retail companies in the world. I'm also passionate about community involvement and helping those in need. When the opportunity arrived to evaluate my next career move, I deeply reflected on my time spent in the logistics industry as well as where I was in my personal life. I was strongly urged from within to transition my focus and follow my passion for helping others with the experience and talents that I had developed over the years. Joining the Smooth Transitions family of logistics professionals has allowed me to blend my professional experience with my personal passions to help the overwhelmed to overcome. My entire career had revolved around moving boxes until I found a way to move lives!
