About Us

Our goal is to have each customer start his or her new chapter in life with an “uneventful” transition … expertly, compassionately, and affordably. We’re there for you, regardless if it’s to help simplify your life by decluttering and organizing your home, or if it’s part of a corporate, individual, or senior move. We do what we do because it’s rewarding and meaningful.

Leaving a chapter behind to begin a new page in life can be tougher for some than others. Some people would rather jump to the end of the book and NASMM Logonot worry about all the details in the middle chapters. Understanding this upfront helps fuel our desire to deliver an organized, thoughtful experience and lessen the stress that comes with change.

As a member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers® (NASMM), Next Chapter MovesSM is bound by a pledge of integrity, committed to safety and ethics, and dedicated to continuing professional development.
