Our Services

Moving and other life transitions involve many details and tasks that can be overwhelming for people of any age– particularly when health, work or distance issues are involved. We understand life demands and can free you to address those while we “have your back” on getting work done.

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.


After your free, no obligation assessment session, a personal proposal will be prepared for your consideration based on the needs that have been discussed.

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

What Clients Say About ALM

I was so impressed on moving day when I went to dinner and came back – the bed was made and all boxes were out of the bedroom and living room. It really looked like someone was ready to live here. I had been dreading this day for 3 months. ALM made the transition so much smoother!

Betty E.

One cannot improve on perfection – so many wonderfully creative decorating ideas! So many happy little touches. I was just open-mouthed going through each room and seeing what a great place you all had created. Thank you very much!

Eleanor D.

The quality of service, friendliness of the workers was excellent plus! It was a great pleasure to get out of the way and watch them work. They made the transition from one apartment to another in record time and went the second mile with the hanging of family pictures. We gladly recommend ALM and if the need arises will call on them again!
