About Caring Transitions - Newport News

Welcome to Caring Transitions. We are Phil and Pam Sweat. I am fortunate to have lived here on the VA Peninsula all my life; having stayed in one area has allowed me to get to know not only the area well but the people here.

Having earned degrees in Business and Economics, I understand a client’s need to maximize his returns while minimizing his stress. With special training in downsizing, moving, estate sales and liquidations, we are your one stop source to handle all your needs through these difficult times.

We are the first and only national franchise of our kind! Our offices and staff are trained by the best in the country to handle almost any transitional situation you have.

This office serves the Peninsula & Middle Peninsula, including Williamsburg, Toano, Newport News, Hampton, Yorktown, Poquoson, Tabb, Seaford, Grafton, and Charles City areas.

We are a total solution to your move management, estate sale and liquidation needs. We can and do offer more options than any others! Our prices vary based on services needed, but the initial consultation is FREE!

While we do many on-site tag sales, we do not limit ourselves to this option- some clients need their items sold right away or some may live in an area where an on-site sale is not an option. We have had great success with online auctions on our own CTonlineauctions.com. We also have relationships with various whole estate buyers. That means we know which buyers will pay the most for your items if a buyout is required. Sometimes we will coordinate the sale of an entire estate by room to do the best for our clients.

After the sale we are always ready to help if there are any items remaining. We can set up donation pick ups or ship items to family members or friends.


Caring Transitions is here to assist you with:
•Sorting and de-cluttering
•Downsizing or rightsizing your home
•Packing and moving
•Estate/tag sales, on-line auctions and sales
•Liquidate and disperse assets
•Repair, paint, and cleanup
•Prepare your old house for resale
•Find and coordinate with realtors, banks, and attorneys
•Unpack at your new home
•Set up your new home to your satisfaction


Our employees are carefully screened and chosen to understand the special needs of our clients. They are compassionate, Caring individuals here to be your on site advocate, your complete move manager. We are bonded and insured.

Call today for your free in-home consultation. We will provide you with a clear plan and a timetable to suit your needs.

What People Say About Caring Transitions - Newport News
When we decided to sell our home and downsize, we found the best plan for us was an estate sale. Phillip at Caring Transitions patiently answered all of our questions and explained everything we needed to know. The Caring Transitions team came in and did a wonderful job. They were professional, pleasant and went above and beyond to insure our satisfaction. We highly recommend Caring Transitions to anyone wanting to have an estate sale.

Roger and Lera C.

Royal Grant Estate Sale
We were exasperated when we called Phil Sweat. Months had passed since my Dad's passing and there was just so much stuff that he had accumulated; we were tired and simply didn't know how to deal with it. Phil came in and helped by organizing and conducting the estate sale. We didn't even have to be there during the sale! Phil's estate sale cleared out most of the house. The sale proceeds covered Caring Transitions expenses and injected much needed cash into the estate account. Phil offered additional service in a no-pressure but friendly and helpful way. However, the estate sale cleaned out the bulk of the items leaving a much more manageable situation that we were able to complete on our own. Thanks Phil.

Claudia D.

Hilton Village Estate Sale
In March 2011 I contacted Phillip because my mother wanted to downsize from a 3100 square foot home to an apartment. The house was filled to the top with things from thirty years ago to present. Phillip was so easy to work with and kept me informed of the progress almost daily. He ran a very professional job and conducted a very successful estate sale. After the sale, his team packed up items for charity pick-up and coordinated all of the details Phillip's cost estimate was spoton as well. Phillip and his team got the enormous job done in a short amount of time and were very thorough. I could not have done all of that work on my own and he made my life a lot easier in dealing with my mother's transition into another living space. I had contacted several businesses for this job and I am so glad that I chose Caring Transitions. In closing, I would highly recommend Phillip and Caring Transitions to any potential client.

Sincerely, Tricia H.-C.
