About Caring Transitions of San Diego East County

Caring Transitions of San Diego East County is the Professional Solution for relocation services including downsizing, decluttering, & estate sales for both full and partial liquidations.

Moving is always stressful – especially for seniors and busy families – and the physical, emotional and mental strain of relocating a senior or clearing an estate when someone has passed is not something we’re ever truly prepared to face. I’m David Van Houten and I opened this business with my brother Andy Van Houten because I wanted families in our area to have a better option.

Whether your situation is planned or unexpected, Caring Transitions’ services are perfect for seniors moving in with family or into a safer living situation as well as busy families and people clearing out the home of a loved one who has passed. All of Caring Transitions’ services are customizable, so clients only pay for the services they need – whether that means managing the entire move and estate-clearing or just getting someone resettled into their new place.

When you work with Caring Transitions, you’re not just working with a moving service or an estate sale company. You’re working with a full-service solution and a team that wants to make your life easier. We will listen to you, assess the situation and tailor our services to fit your needs. Services like this are not one-size- fits-all and we understand that every person and every situation is different. That’s part of what sets us apart.

I think the Caring Transitions name really says it all. Transitions are always stressful and we understand. Let us help you through this so you can spend time with your loved ones.
