Moving and downsizing
services for Vancouver's seniors

Moving in Vancouver? Aging in place?
Let Changing Places take care of the details

Changing Places is a moving services company in Vancouver and Victoria, B.C. We specialize in helping clients - particularly seniors - cope with the stress of moving by taking care of details like:     

  • Sorting & Packing
  • Decluttering & Organizing  
  • Moving & House Emptying
  • House Rearranging   
  • Unpacking & Settling In 

Changing Places also helps clients adapt their homes to live full lives in an environment that is right for them. Depending on your wants and needs, we organize and adapt your current space so you can continue to live in your own home, or we care for you and your most precious belongings as you move to a new home.

While some realtors and professional organizers provide downsizing services as a sideline to their core business, we know that this is one of the most important events of our client's life, and we give the moving process our full attention. Our caring, client-focused approach to moving has eased the minds and lightened the burden of downsizing for many families.  

Just the thought of moving usually causes sleepless nights and much anxiety, especially for seniors. Changing Places and its team of dedicated, caring staff will give you peace of mind and support in this huge and complex task.

We understand the responsibility of caring for your possessions, assisting in making difficult decisions and taking care of all the details involved in your move. Changing Places would love to be invited to your home for a free consultation on downsizing and your housing needs. When it is time to move, we can help coordinate the tasks, clear your house, move along any unwanted goods, pack and unpack, set-up and organize your new home.

Our free consultation ensures a customized approach to your needs. 

Contact John at 778.628.0725 or to arrange an appointment.
