About Caring Transitions of Lancaster

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


When you’re looking to downsize or clear an estate, finding the right solution for you or your loved one can seem daunting. Everyone is busy and you’re already stressed and emotional from the transition your family is facing. I’m Mary Ellen Mahoney, the local owner and operator of Caring Transitions of Lancaster, and I opened this business because I want you to have a better option.

 At Caring Transitions, our specially trained team can handle organizing, packing, de-cluttering, moving, resettling, in-person and online estate sales, liquidations, and preparing homes for market. Caring Transitions is America’s largest resource for managing senior relocations, but the services are also perfect for busy families and individuals in need of assistance. All of our services are customizable, so you’ll only pay for the services you need – whether that means managing the entire move and estate-clearing or just getting you settled into a new place.

I understand how difficult it can be to work through a relocation or estate sale – whether you’ve lost a loved one or you need to move a family member. As my mom was reaching the last few years of her life, she considered downsizing into what would have been a happier situation, but I think she just felt trapped by her stuff. That’s the last thing you want to happen. You don’t want your stuff making your decisions for you. I regret that it happened that way and I’m hoping, through my work at Caring Transitions, I can help other families avoid that situation. The transitions my mom had to face over the last three years of her life really put our family in a conundrum. We needed Caring Transitions – we just didn’t know it.

Caring Transitions is a cut above the competition because we specifically specialize in working with seniors and families who are facing life transitions. Additionally, Caring Transitions offers professional online estate sale services, which means families no longer have to have in-person estate sales if they don’t want to. In addition to the work I do with Caring Transitions, I also love to help people sort through and preserve their memories and records. As an amateur photographer, it’s something I’m passionate about. I’m also building partnerships with local companies who can help families preserve family photos and videos through digitization.
