“I was initially skeptical about using an “unpacking/organizing service.” Hiring you to help us organize before the move, supervise the moving company and unpack for us after the move, proved to be a very positive experience and one of the most helpful services I have ever utilized. Walking into our new home, already completely set up from bed linens to kitchen utensils, was simply invaluable for two busy attorneys. I never knew how much I needed you!!” H.R., Purchase, NY
“I do not know how to express my thanks except to say I could not have survived this move without you. Moving after 33 years from a 4500 sq. ft. duplex to an 1800 sq. ft. apartment seemed to be an impossible task. From the moment we started to work together, I knew you were a true professional bringing a great deal of knowledge and the perfect solution to each and every problem we faced. Because of you, my new home is incredibly orderly and each and every article has its own defined ad easy to identify space." S.B. New York City
Left to Last Minute
“I truly cannot thank you enough for all of your wonderful work, under immense time pressure. You really are wonderful at what you do – a genius of sorts. And I am a genius for hiring you!” R.H., New York City
“How do we thank thee? Let us count the ways…Les; you have been such a blessing to me and my sister in helping us to organize our homes. Your creativity and sense of space is amazing and your patience is truly remarkable! Your clever ideas about storage, your way of sorting and separating the wheat from the chaff, your kindness and sense of humor, all make an arduous task doable and, even, dare I say it, fun!” N.S., Scarsdale, NY
“Quite often I am asked to recommend a vendor in a related business to the design field/new home business. From personal experience, I can whole heartedly recommend the folks at The Platinum Move. My client(s) move was rendered effortless and without aggravation. Moving can be a stressful time in a client’s life and the team of The Platinum Move were professional, detail oriented, and most importantly, trustworthy. They arrived on the scene ready to work and didn’t stop until the job was well-done. I didn’t have to ask, “Was this done, or that done? Leslie and her crew knew what to do and when to do it. They took the lead and completed the job in a timely manner."
Stacy Gendelman Designs, Purchase, NY
"Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Words cannot express how thankful we are for your assistance in clearing and staging the upper Eastside apartment in New York City with little time and no family available to go through a lifetime’s accumulation. As true professionals you added the personal touches required to facilitate the project as a job extremely well done at the best possible price point. Congratulations and further success in all your efforts. The Platinum Move deserves the highest praise possible for being talented, forthright, honest and nearly miraculous."

Estate Cleanout and Sale
“The job you and your team performed at our summer house was nothing short of a miracle. Who would have thought that a 4400 sq. ft. home that had accumulated so much stuff could be organized and catalogued, packed and cleaned with such speed and care? Most importantly to us, you treated our belongings as if they were your own. Your management and promotion of the estate sale was invaluable, and much to our pleasant surprise netted us more than we ever could have imagined. Thank you for everything." K.W., Watermill, NY
“I am only too happy to pay this bill. You have been beyond words. A true godsend. Thank you for all of your words of encouragement and your willingness to be so flexible during this difficult time. I just can’t say enough how much I appreciate you and your team.” J.T., Pound Ridge, NY
Real Estate Salesperson
"I referred The Platinum Move to consult with my client who was in need of a complete clean-out to ready their apartment for renovation and sale.
Leslie Abelson and Randi Silverman of The Platinum Move brought a wealth of knowledge and innovation and did an amazing job completing the project on time and beyond the family’s expectations. They understand and respect building management requirements, took a “green” approach to emptying the apartment’s contents, and to my client’s delight, netted them enough money to cover the cost of the clean out and realize a sizeable profit as well." Lisa Tainiter, VP, Kleier Residential, NYC
"My wife and I wish to express our deep appreciation -- and admiration -- for the way you handled my sister's cross-county move to an assisted living facility in White Plains. The physical move proceeded on schedule despite the time and effort you had to put into comforting a client resistant to the idea of leaving her home of 40 years. And you did this while having to keep in constant touch with us in Virginia. We really couldn't have asked for more or better service.
During our recent visit with my sister, we saw how tastefully you had set up her apartment, the choices that were made regarding what to keep and what to sell and the way everything was organized. All in all, I'd say you have displayed top-notch professionalism along with a personal touch that must be unique
to The Platinum Move." H.B., VA
“Leslie and Randi- you are terrific! Your professional, compassionate and competent approach was a welcome relief from the complex challenges of moving my Dad into an assisted living facility. Thank you for keeping my siblings and me informed throughout this entire process. You provided an invaluable service at a reasonable price. This is a project that we could never have tackled without you and your team.” M.F., Santa Monica
“My sister and I engaged Leslie and Randi’s services to assist us with the recent move of our parents from Florida to the Esplanade in White Plains. We could not have accomplished this without their help.
Leslie and Randi worked tirelessly and efficiently from the moment we first met them at the Esplanade before my parents even moved in. As we were busy dealing with my parents, they focused on the details of getting the apartment ready and moving my parents’ belongings from my house, where they were temporarily, to the apartment. They unpacked and neatly arranged all of my parents’ personal effects so that on move-in day, everything was in its place. They also spent several hours with my mother shopping for items and were present on site when the window treatments were installed; this allowed me to go to work and to attend to other details of my parents’ move into the Esplanade.
This has been a very challenging process and The Platinum Move was invaluable in helping us get it all done! I would recommend them to anyone who needs assistance in making this transition." W.M., Rye, NY
“I hired Leslie to help make my move from PA to CT possible this spring. She and her team were a true lifesaver for many reasons. I was 35 weeks pregnant and running around after a two year old, so I was not able to manage my move physically or mentally. Leslie was a great leader who not only anticipated, but was quick to problem solve! She worked tirelessly and at the end of the day, got the job done and more! Her staff was a group of amazing and caring people. They went above and beyond. I simply could not have made this move successfully without her help and wisdom." V.VdW., Fairfield, CT
"We engaged The Platinum Move to help us with the very difficult task of downsizing and moving from our long time home in Westport, CT to a much smaller 2 bedroom apartment in a retirement community in St. Petersburg, FL. They helped me organize and determine what to take with us and what to let go. The two of them spend long hours organizing a large collection of “stuff” for an auction, kept tabs on the whole process, and were there for the preview and pick up day. They found a way to sell our grand piano and second car. Then they organized for and supervised the packing by the moving company and were there for the actual moving out of everything so that we were able to leave for the long drive to our new home. We simply could not have managed all this by ourselves and they were unfailingly cheerful, helpful, pleasant and concerned throughout the whole process. They are both very energetic and enthusiastic which was exactly what I needed at the time. It would have been just ghastly without the help Leslie and Randi provided for us.
