Start Your Own Transition Squad® Downsizing Business
We offer two types of programs for those interested in conducting their own auctions using our platform: Become a Dealer or a Franchisee.
To create a thriving lucrative business in this sector, one cannot do it alone. It requires a team of people with a variety of skills to work together and keep business flowing. With our partnership philosophy, you focus on local business development, building rapport with clients and project execution while we take care of the rest.
To make any business successful, one has to work smart and then hard. We're looking for enterprising hard workers to be our partners in their local market. We want people that want to run their own show, build and grow a real business, be pillars of local society and help people.
Seniors and their families will be entrusting you with their own personal effects, many of which will have sentimental value. They may call Transition Squad® because they see a benefit in our value proposition, but they will sign up because they trust, like and build a connection with YOU and believe that you will treat their precious items with the same care and attention as if they were yours. Therefore, it is very important that you are genuinely and sincerely interested in wanting to help the client.
This role also requires an organized, resourceful, project management type of person with excellent attention to detail, the ability to juggle multiple clients at the same time and excellent written and oral communication skills. You must be flexible with your time to meet client needs.
While you don't need to be a "tech geek" to run a Transition Squad® franchise, you should be comfortable with computers and basic programs like Excel, Word, databases and browsers on a Windows platform.
We are pleased to announce that we will soon be offering franchise opportunities in Florida and other non-registration states. If you would like to receive franchise information and details of the opportunities, please send your contact information to [email protected] and we will include you in our updates.

You should have enough working capital to carry you financially through the training period and typically up to three to six months thereafter. Transition Squad® is a very low overhead business with mostly variable operating costs so your initial working capital requirements need not be that high.
Like any business, franchise or not, the major expenses you incur will be the startup costs, in this case franchise fees. These can be funded from your personal savings, loans from your bank, or there may be government incentives in your area. Transition Squad® is in the process of setting up connections with lenders to help finance franchise fees for those with approved credit.
