I will help you, calmly, make decisions that seem so overwhelming.
Keep it? Donate it? Trash it? Repurpose it?
Besides a second set of hands I am there to talk it through with you.
No judgement, ever.
Once we start you will feel great about your progress and will become more motivated.
We will set goals and make them happen in a timely manner.
Organizing for your realtors first visit and staging.
You are considering moving and realize that means having a realtor come and look in every closet and all of the places that we keep everything!
This can also mean packing the items that the stagers do not want to use.
To get the most accurate moving estimate it is best to have things organized as much as possible.
Declutter, organize, and pack along the way.
I always advise to have three moving estimates before choosing your moving company.
Together we will walk through your home or office. I will point out anything that needs special attention so you will know what the moving consultant should be addressing.
I can review your estimates and we can discuss your options.
I will give you tips & tricks to help save money & keep your belongings safe.
My motto is "use your stuff to pack your stuff".
When possible use your towels, sheets, pillows, any kind of fluff for cushion to protect your belongings. Even stuffed animals.
This will save you money. Everything has to go in a box anyway! Your clean socks are cleaner than dirty newspaper. Less paper, expensive bubble wrap, and less boxes. Less boxes and weight will help reduce the cost of your move.
Creative problem solving.
There are rules and laws about what is and what is not insurable.
The consultant should be very transparent and should be educating you. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Who would have thought you need to ask the moving consultant, “Do you charge for tape?” If it is not clear on the estimate, you want to ask.
Those little surprises at the end of the move can add up.
PACKING IS MY ZEN!
I can look in the cabinets and already know what to pack with what and in what size box. I will bring any special needs to your attention.
Every box is a challenge. A 3-dimensional puzzle. I love it! And I am quick!!
It is my goal to conserve materials when possible. I can use your towels, sheets, blankets, pillows, etc. as cushions, when possible to save on buying paper or bubble wrap.
Creative problem solving!
I will take a photo per box and any possible damages or defects.
Each box will be numbered and labeled.
Photos will be emailed to you.
A print out of the photo will be sealed and secured to the outside of the box. The photo will not be showing.
Once in your new home or office you can unseal the clear bag and flip the photo and put it back in the envelope. You will know what is in the box before opening it.
I can also leave you with a binder of the photos and list of boxes.
List of box numbers, room and description of contents.
I will note any damages or defects.
Unpack and set-up new household or office.
Everyone has their own way of doing things so I am happy to work with you or by myself. I make my decisions of placing items based on their function and how often they are used. I prefer that you have easy access to your items so there is no struggling to get something from a cabinet or closet.
As an artist, I have a great eye for placement of furniture, art and precious items.
I will go on the day of the estimate and or day(s) of the move to make sure that everything is handled with care. That the move is running in a timely manner and everything ends up in the correct place in your new home.
