About Caring Transitions of Lafayette

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


When you’re faced with helping a loved one relocate or downsize or you’re left clearing an estate of a loved one who has passed, you’re not just dealing with a physical challenge, but also an emotional one. At Caring Transitions, we specialize in helping people like you get through this transition and onto the next chapter of your life with as little stress as possible. I’m Robert Schmidt, the local owner and operator of Caring Transitions of Lafayette, and I opened this franchise because I saw opportunity to build a business that would make positive impact on the lives of people in Acadiana, where I’ve lived for 30 years and where I’m raising my family.

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.

We don’t just move people. You can customize our services to suit your needs, but we are available to handle everything from space planning and packing, to moving and resettling, to estate sales and preparing homes for market. Caring Transitions can handle the entire process from beginning to end. In fact, Caring Transitions is usually more cost effective than doing all of that yourself anyway, especially if family has to take time off work and travel to help. Just give us a call and let’s talk about how we can help make the process easier for everyone.

I feel passionate about the work we do at Caring Transitions and the relief we can provide for families in need. Most of us aren’t prepared to help our family members relocate and clear out an estate – even when we know it’s coming – and I’ve been thrust into that situation myself. I know it’s hard. But I also know that you don’t have to do it alone. At Caring Transitions, we are available to do all the things no one wants to do in those situations. Give us a call and let’s talk about how we can help you and your family.
