"Thank you Cynthia - It was difficult dealing with years of memories and deciding how to handle all the things. You helped me deal with a situation that was just too overwhelming for one person to handle."


- Shirley Senda

“Our dad had a medical event and needed to move from his beloved apartment of 15 yrs. To a retirement community with continuum of care facilities. The selection of the facility and the move had to be completed in 10 days – due to the urgency of the situation. We were provided a SMM brochure at Arcadia. We contacted them immediately as were challenged with moving my dad’s 2 bedroom apartment of possessions (and being a depression baby – he saved everything – into a studio – all within 10 days.) SMM and Cynthia were terrific! They came out for a consult the next day. They were professional.”

- Annie

“Cynthia, Let me thank you and all SMM staff for making our down-size and relocation so easy for me. You were able to accommodate our special circumstances, and adapted your schedule to our needs. I hope you can help my sister in her relocation whenever she decides where she wants to move to eventually. You all are remarkable members of Les & Shirley Ihara’s ohana!”


- Aloha, Lawrence Enomoto

“Senior Move Managers are definitely angels sent down from heaven to help us. They are professional, friendly, show care and concern and treat things as their own. They sent me pictures throughout the whole process. The process of moving was very easy (for me anyway) and because I was given peace of mind due to the constant communication and friendliness of Cynthia. They handled everything from packing, moving, hauling to storage (which they set up), and taking of pictures that were emailed to me throughout the whole 40 hour process.

I was saved the expense of flying over there from Oregon and the stress of attempting to do it all myself. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”


- Ms. Strauser

“Respectful and informative. They helped us sort the possessions – Those to keep – Those to mail to relative – Those to donate – Those to trash. They move my Dad in half a day – no trauma, no problems. I am also appreciative of Cynthia and SMM to provide expertise in a time of crisis. We were in such good hands. I highly recommend them, and am so grateful to them.”


- Ms. Berssenbrugge

“After I retired I told myself that, at last, I would slowly de-clutter my house. Well, 2 years passed, and nothing happened. Then I saw an article in Mid Week about Senior Move Managers. I procrastinated for another 2 months before calling. I was too embarrassed to have anyone see the dirt and clutter in my home. Then I decided that I had to face the reality that I could not do it alone and that my disabled husband could not help me so I called Cynthia. Cynthia was so helpful and did not “push” me to agree to anything. SMM sent me an angel named Nate and he performed an absolute miracle! I got rid of so much junk and was to donate so many books and household goods that I could donate to others. SMM made donating easy and arranged for the “junk” to be removed. I can’t thank Senior Move Managers  enough. Cynthia and Nate are miracle workers.”


- Diana Capili

“A difficult job was done quickly and professionally. The team was cheerful and helpful at all times.”


- Henderson

“I have not worked with a company that showed such concern for their clients belongings as well as helping clients save money. It was a relief to work with them, have everything handled from packing, moving, to storage and pictures sent throughout the whole process.”


- Sandy

Cynthia Arnold and her team provided comprehensive assitance to my family. My sister and I live out of state and the death of our mother, the needs of our father and maintenance of the family home in a time of transition were more than we could manage. Cynthia met with us promptly, stayed in touch via email and phone when were not in Hawaii. SMM provided packing, shipping, house and car maintenance, repairs over time as my needs changed.

After my father needed to leave the home, SMM helped us manage the empty home then moved personal items to a care facility for my father. When he passed away, SMM helped us move things back home and distributed furniture and household goods to local friends.

SMM were an essential link for us - local contacts, local knowledge and a very personal service and support in stressful and changing needs and circumstances while we came and went to the take care of our father and his house. I recommend SMM 100%. They are flexible, honest and dependable. Indispensable to us and our family this past year.

- Barbara Craver

“I first heard about the company, De-Clutter from my friend who had used them when she was moving to another place and selling her house. I called Cynthia Arnold just to see what the cost would be and what they could do for me since we're planning on downsizing and moving into a smaller place.

Cynthia was very helpful, when i explained to her that we would probably need to do the moving and selling, etc. in several phases. She provided me with a general estimate for phase one which in my opinion was very reasonable. During phase one, they sold some of the stuff i wished sold, moved certain items to where i wished to have it moved (sister's house) and threw away items i wished discarded.. When we got together to settle payment, Cynthia deducted all items sold (they do not keep a penny for items sold) plus also deducted the hours it took to do these things since the first estimate had a certain number of hours but it took less than planned. My bill I was happily surprised to see was very low.

The company is very honest, straightforward and easy to work with. We will be working with the company again when ready for phase two.”

- Gail Glushenko

“The task of sorting and “de-cluttering” my father’s condo after he moved to a retirement home was an enormous and perhaps frightening experience to handle.  However, after meeting with Cynthia Arnold, she provided me with the reassurance and confidence that all would go well.   She relayed the important points to consider and laid out a plan of action with my tasks and responsibilities as well as her team’s.  In the end, all went well for the one-day de-cluttering and storing.

In addition, Cynthia helped me with another plan of action to renovate the condo in preparation for its sale.  This was an area of service I was not aware of that Senior Move Managers provided.    She quickly contacted a variety of vendors to assist with the renovation, followed up with the scheduling, and eventually oversaw the completion of refurbishing.  Due to her excellent coordination, the renovation work was completed within 3 weeks and the condo was ready to be sold.  This was most appreciated since I returned to my home in Singapore after the first week of renovation, and Cynthia carried on the work and followed up for me after I left.

I would highly recommend the expert services of Senior Move Managers to assist any family that requires downsizing, de-cluttering, or moving.”

- Hilda Min

“Thank you very much for helping us move from our home to Craigside Place. The transition was perfect - everything was in place, just like it was never moved. My wife and I are very satisfied.”

- Wilbur Yee

“Many sincere mahalo for the expertise and service provided by the Senior Move Managers LLC.”

- Florence Nakamura

“We chose to use the services of Senior Move Managers because we had lots of ‘stuff’ cluttering our three-bedroom home we had for 42 years. It was the best decision we made as we prepared to downsize and move to a one-bedroom apartment at 15 Craigside Place. Having Senior Move Managers’ staff help with their suggestions on how to downsize was invaluable to us because we were quite reluctant to ‘toss’ things out. Their staff was always ready and willing to move the many boxes of personal goods and furniture items to not only our new apartment but to our church and other locations. The staff’s positive attitude made the move so easy for us. Not once did we see or hear any ‘monku’ from them as they had the hard task of moving large and heavy boxes, furniture and hangers of clothes.

For families who are facing downsizing and moving, we recommend Senior Move Managers. They made our move simple and painless. Mahalo and aloha.”

- Gene and Roberta Kaneshiro

“If we didn’t have the service of the Senior Move Managers our moving out from the four bedroom house to this 1 bedroom unit at 15 Craigside would have been impossible. The employees work at such amazing speed and efficiency.”

- The Irinakas

“Mom just moved into a care home, and Dad had passed away five years earlier. I needed people whom I could trust to clear out my parents’ home of nearly sixty years. The task would be daunting as it was a large two-story Kaimuki house with six bedrooms filled with a lifetime of personal possessions. The staff at Senior Move Managers proved to be professional and caring from start to finish.

They went through literally thousands of items in two weeks. Everything was either discarded, donated, or sold. Shortly after they began, they discovered a large sum of money and some jewelry, and contacted me right away to pick it up. That action alone boosted my trust in them tremendously.

After the first week, they asked me to personally go through some boxes of papers, photos, and other mementos that they thought would have meaning to our family. I now have many precious treasures which are part of our family history.

Senior Move Managers coordinated the clearing of two sheds in the back yard and the cleaning of the house. They worked with my Realtor and even removed old appliances, carpets, and curtains. Even with the additional work, they met their deadline. The house was placed on the market and sold quickly.

I could not have done this without Senior Move Managers. I have the peace of mind that my family home was treated with respect by caring individuals. Do not hesitate to choose Senior Move Managers to help you clear your home or the home of someone you love. You can trust them to do the job.”

- Merrily Leong, December 2013

“Thanks to you and your company, a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders. When your crew came in to de-clutter my house, I felt a sense of great relieft. Not that I’m home from the hospital, I’m thankful that I can recuperate in a much better place. Peace of mind has brought much appreciation and enjoyment of my home. Much mahalo!”

- Florence M. Matsuda

“Thank you Cynthia and your staff for helping me with my move into 15 Craigside Place. It was very difficult for me at times to think that I would be leaving my home of 30 years, but having your help made things bearable. Thank you so much for your kokua.”

- Marian Tomoeda

“If we didn’t have the service of the Senior Move Managers our moving out from the four bedroom house to this 1 bedroom unit at 15 Craigside would have been impossible. The employees work at such amazing speed and efficiency.”

“The arduous task of moving from my home to 15 Craigside was smoothly accomplished primarily due to Senior Move Manager’s expertise. The pending move was worrisome but Senior Move Managers came to the rescue and solved the problem.

Manager Robert Ching was the optimum in overseeing the move. Professional with a positive move. Professional with a positive attitude, understanding, patient, courteous, etc. established a trusting work relationship. Periodic telephone calls kept me informed concerning the current status of the move. This was great as it enabled me to respond knowledgeably to inquiries and attain sensible decisions.

I appreciated the expertise and especially the can-do attitude that Senior Move Managers provided. I’ve recommended your services to friends who are contemplating a move in the near future.

Two months at 15 Craigside has been a gradual adjustment to living in a senior community. Quite an experience but without a doubt a wonderful lifestyle.”

- Laura Foo

“Cynthia, rob, John and the other staff at Senior Move Managers went beyond our expectations to prepare our house for sale. They were compassionate and respectul to us, knowing that items held special memories and assisted us in having those items shipped to family. They were very efficient hard workers. We had total trust and confidence in their recommendations and plan of action. Communication was quick and efficient; they arrived they said they would and completed each task with attention to detail. They made the process easy and we are grateful.”

“Robert Ching ... made a  difficult move easier to handle.’

- Patricia Moore

“Senior Move Managers were very efficient – so fast and friendly, great people to work with. They cleared my mom’s house in 1 ½ days! I would readily refer their services to anyone that needed such help. Thank you for all your help.”
