"When my Mom passed away, it was too painful for me to clean out her apartment. I knew I needed help and guidance. A friend recommended that I contact Swapping Scenes to assist me with this daunting task and to make sure that nothing important was left behind. They arranged everything including access, donations, and waste removal. They even retrieved my father’s flag from his military funeral and other keepsakes that might have been overlooked. They were kind, patient and understanding of the fact that I was grieving. They went above and beyond the task at hand. Working with Swapping Scenes was a great decision; I cannot recommend their services highly enough."

What makes a Senior Move Manager different from a moving company?
A moving company packs, loads and delivers your possessions. They do not help you sort, declutter, or organize and downsize. They also do not unpack your belongings, make beds, hang your pictures or organize your closets! Swapping Scenes develops a multi-faceted plan for your particular transition, providing support and expert guidance to meet your specific situation.
How much do Senior Move Management services cost?
Each move is different, and the anticipated cost of your move or service will depend on the scope of the project and your unique needs. Once we have conducted our in-depth consultation with you, we will share a proposal detailing costs and services for your consideration.
We are doing most of the work for our parent’s move. Can I contact Swapping Scenes to take care of specific pieces of the project?
Yes! We are prepared to assist you in whatever manner you need. Swapping Scenes can offer a complete door-to-door move or provide discrete services. Let us know what you need!
My parents are moving from Virginia to North Jersey to be closer to their children and grandchildren, can you help?
Absolutely. Swapping Scenes can be engaged in a variety of ways. We can create a comprehensive move plan for your parents that includes managing their move on-site and traveling with them if needed; we can partner with another certified Senior Move Manager and work together to ensure your parents have a safe and smooth transition or a combination.
