Moving? Downsizing? Decluttering?
Too much stuff causes stress! The process of decluttering and disposing of stuff in preparation for a move to a smaller home is challenging, time consuming and exhausting.
Determining what to keep, what to sell, what to donate and what to junk is super annoying.
We help you sort, declutter, decide what to keep, sell or donate. And then we take care of it for you!
We help you with decluttering, downsizing, sorting, and packing for a stress free transition. We move and place the items to be kept in your new home. We sell, recycle or donate the items that you no longer want.

Transitioning An Elder Loved One Into Care?
Transitioning an elder from their forever home into care can be stressful and time consuming.
We come alongside you and guide you through the ominous but delicate task of sorting and dispersing possessions. We do so in a respectful and thoughtful way so that you and your elder can rest assured that their treasures have been handled with care and thought.
The service was excellent. Arriving on time, polite and courteous, made sure all items were carefully handled.
I would highly recommend Aaron at A Step Forward Senior Services.”
Google 5-Star Review
“They promptly came to my property and took a truck load of antique and specially items away. They then priced and listed the items in various markets. I didn’t have the space and needed the items dealt with, and they took care of it for me. It doesn’t get any easier than this. A hardworking and trustworthy company that provides a solid service.”
"Friendly and Honest"
“Aaron Torio at Sell It For Me (now A Step Forward) is friendly and honest. I especially appreciated how he quickly picked up the items which subsequently cleared space in my house. In addition, as a single woman, I find selling things to be risky so his service is a safe alternative to just losing money by bringing items to the thrift shop. All in all, the elimination of the stress and hassle of selling makes this service well worth the selling fee!”
How it works
Call us at 604-799-1789 to set up a free no-obligation consultation.
We will get to know each other and tailor a plan that is right for your situation and your budget.
After our consultation and learning your objectives, we come to your home and:
- Sort and declutter to determine what will be kept, sold, donated and disposed of.
- We itemize everything.
- Items for moving are packed up in preparation for the move.
- Items to be sold are stored in our safe, dry and secure storage location.
- Items to be donated are taken to a local charity.
- Items for disposal are taken to the dump.
Where movable items need to stored for a period of time, we hold onto them for you in our safe and secure storage facility until you are ready to have them returned.
You just relax. We take care of everything!
Selling No Longer Wanted/Needed Items
Rather than dispose of everything when decluttering, many items still have value to someone. We sell saleable items for you and charge a small commssion on the items sold. We typically sell things at a higher price than auction. And, our commission is very reasonable.
For anything that doesn’t sell, you decide whether you’d like to keep it or whether you’d prefer to donate it to charity.
We deal with several charities run by local and reputable Not For Profit Organizations.
No Work, No Hassle
Our senior clients and their families often do not have the time or desire to manage the sorting and selling of items they no longer need or want.
We provide a way for our clients to avoid the hassle of placing ads and taking calls and/or of loading stuff up to go to the thrift store or the local dump.
