About CARING TRANSITIONS SOUTH BAY/PV

We’re Tim and Heather Baker, the local owners and operators of Caring Transitions South Bay/PV. We are your one-stop solution for relocation services, providing compassionate assistance with downsizing, decluttering, online auctions and estate sales for full and partial liquidations. We launched this business because we understand what it takes to help older loved ones move and resettle. When we moved three parents, we lamented that there wasn’t a full-service company we could bring in to help. When we had the opportunity to open our own business here in the community we call home, we knew Caring Transitions would be the perfect fit.

We have lived in Torrance since 1990 and both of our girls (Jasmine and Ginger) went to Torrance High School. Tim previously worked as a product developer/inventor and Heather as an associate pastor and professional organizer.

Our team is compassionate and professional as well as trained in the comprehensive Certified Relocation Transition Specialist (CRTS) Program, so you can feel confident trusting us with your loved one’s cherished items. We strive to give you a positive experience through a difficult time. Contact us today and let’s talk about how we can work together to help make the transition you are facing as stress-free as possible.

What People Say About CARING TRANSITIONS SOUTH BAY/PV
Our experience with this company could not have been better. They handled an online auction and estate sale of what we wanted to get rid of. They packed up our stuff, had a mover move it, unpacked and put away everything we wanted including the entire kitchen, hauled away packing materials, and helped make our bed for our first night. They donated what they could of stuff left behind and disposed of everything else. They vacuumed the house and cleaned up. Great value for what we paid. Extremely honest, extremely responsive, extremely nice! I would give them 6 stars if I could.
Bill W.
I love doing Business with Tim and Heather Baker through CTBIDS of South Bay/PV. Every lot I've won was realistically represented. Pickup is always organized. Their estate sales are fun with treasure always hiding around the next corner. Their responsiveness to questions is quick and friendly.
Heidi C.
Heather and Caring Transition are an excellent company. Heather came out hereself to meet my client.and thoughtly explained the different programs that could help her. After listening to my clients needs Heather came up with a plan to make that happen including packing up belongings and holding a yard sale.Everything got done is a caring thoughtful manner. Give Heather and Caring Transitions a try.
Ray M.
My mother had passed away and left a home full of collectibles, furniture, tools, plants, clothes, and everything else. We did not know where to start since we were dealing with a very difficult liquidation situation because it was a global pandemic.

We were unable to do a typical estate sale but Tim was very creative and came up with out of the box solutions that like creating on-line auctions and in person only appointments.

I interviewed many companies but eventually turned to his company Caring Transitions Online because of his honesty, integrity and professionalism. Tim Baker literally sold it all, exceeding our expectations value-wise.

He left the house completely cleared out for the new owners and was very pleasant and professional throughout the process. He brings years of experience and expertise to the estate sale process.

He was always available to answer my calls if I had questions or concerns. We encourage anyone to consider Tim Baker to handle the sale of their possessions.
Wendy W.
I have known the owners of Caring Transitions for quite some time now through community involvement. I refer them whenever I can. I have attended many of their estate sales and very impressed by their organizational skills and the level of competence serving their customers. They are also great communicating with all the people involved. Their team comes in and organizes, assists with pricing, and packaging and takes all the worry and stress off of you. Two thumps up.
Eric S.
Tim and his team are WONDERFUL! There aren’t enough words to describe how helpful and easy this process was. There was never a question we asked that the answer was “no.” Tim made it all happen. My brother, husband and I were in the process of decluttering my parents’ home of 35 years who have both passed away. Needless to say, there was a lot of stuff. Tim and his team treated our things with great care and respect. We also had some junk that had accumulated over the years and some things to be securely shredded. Caring transitions handled everything without question or hassle. It made our lives so much less stressful in a time that was beyond difficult. I will always be thankful for this awesome company.
Jean
Caring Transitions is an exercise in truth in advertising. They were instrumental in supporting us to take care of important items and clear out our father's house, which was a gut-wrenching challenge. I don't know what we would have done without Tim Baker and his team's help and support. Thank you!
Rosamina
Tim and his team were fantastic to work with. We were overwhelmed by the process on our own but the Caring Transitions team made it easier to get things done. They were fast, efficient, and caring in the manner they handled everything. Tim and Heather were available for any questions. I am grateful for all of their assistance.
