Senior Moving Help. Relocation Planner.

Solutions for all your transition needs. Downsizing, packing and trash removal.


Much more than

a moving company.



Next Steps can help. We know that it can be overwhelming when downsizing and transitioning a loved one to a new home. Especially if the adult children live out of town. There are many things that need to be done when coming into town to help with a loved one's transition.  


Our caring staff can step right in and handle the transition to a new home with ease


Our family-run business knows how to help in this stressful time and to make your transition as smooth as possible. We are a company that hasn't forgotten how to care for our seniors with respect. 


Next Steps was founded with the customer comes first approach. So many companies look at transitions as a job or a number. We know each and every transition is unique and deserves the attention and care afforded to it. We treat each and every client like family. We value seniors and their life stories. We believe that these stories are far more meaningful than reading it out of a book. The history that they have lived and perspective on life is a far more valuable than gold. We once helped a woman that said that Orville Wright walked her to school as a child in Oakwood. 


Why Next Steps? We saw a need in the Greater Dayton and Cincinnati areas and all of southwest Ohio for a quality transitions company. We treat our seniors just like they were our own grandparents. We follow their wishes not lists that other companies use.

Folks like you say this about us...

Allen and his team are awesome!  They helped navigate a very difficult move that was unplanned and had to be done quickly.  There were many unusual pieces to this move and they made it seem seamless while addressing every aspect from health related issues with the move to actual moving issues.  They are wonderful and we would use them again without question.

Allen and his team managed the move from the moment they walked into our house.  They were there for us in every way, physically and emotionally – helping us make decisions about what to take and what not to take, packing everything we were taking as well as everything we couldn’t, making multiple trips to Goodwill to donate the things we weren’t taking, arranging for what needed to be thrown away to be picked up by a trash collecting company, even listening to our stories when we came across an item that sparked a memory.  In the time that they worked with us, they certainly became friends – and almost family!


The day they moved us into our new apartment, not only did they pack the refrigerator and freezer items into ice chests, they moved the items into our new refrigerator.  They unpacked dishes and kitchen items and put them in cupboards.  In a final amazing courtesy to us, before they left on move day, they made our bed!  How much we appreciated that bed at the end of the day – but not as much as we appreciated Allen and his team and the way they contributed in a major way to the success of our move.

Downsizing in Moraine


Dear Allen,


We have just completed our first two months in our new apartment and we wanted to say thank you for the major role you played in making this happy change possible. From our first in person consultation we felt comfortable with you as a person and had confidence that your professional abilities would allow you to complete the job to our satisfaction. You helped us find our apartment, downsized 45 years of “stuff” from our 4 bedroom split level home to a compact 3 bedroom apartment, and kept your eye on the details at every turn. You supervised the movers at both ends and prepared the new place for our arrival, even purchasing new pillows for the beds we moved with us.


Your quick smile and friendly manner made us feel more like friends than business associates. Your prices were fair and reasonable. The work was top quality from start to finish and if we should ever have to move again, we would positively call you again!

Warmest Regards,
