Move Management Services
I’m not really sure why a senior move manager is beneficial, why is senior move management needed now?
It seems that you work predominately with seniors. Do you organize or move other people as well?
How much does an average pack and move cost?
How long does an average pack and move take?
What if I only need help for certain parts of the move and not the whole move?
Do I need to be home if you move and/or unpack my belongings?
What should I do if my mom, dad or family relative does not want to move, but needs to?
Can I get a free estimate?
My parents are thinking about moving closer to me, but I live out of state. I can’t take any more time off from work and they are too overwhelmed to do it by themselves. Do you offer out-of-state services?
How do you handle disbursing an estate?
Estate disbursal comes in many forms and we work with you or an attorney to follow your wishes. We can ship items to family members, send items to charity or consignment or arrange for an estate sale if necessary. We understand this is an emotional time and we customize our services to fit your needs. We often handle the disbursal of estate for an out of town family member.
How can an organizer help me?
Organizing is a process. Many times our clients don’t know where to start the organizing process and become overwhelmed. Through our consultation process we help write a “mission statement” of what you want to accomplish. We offer practical solutions of how the project will be accomplished and we work with you. We believe that your mission statement is your roadmap to becoming better organized.
Do you only organize with people who are moving?
You don’t have to be moving to use our services. Our organizing services are designed to help restore order to your home. We often work with people who have decided that “less is more” and they engage our services to help them on this journey. We also provide organizing services for people who want to age in place.
How long does it take to finish an organizing project?
Although our goal is to help you get your project done in an efficient manner, there are many factors that can influence how long it takes to complete a given project. Are you a quick decision maker or a “ponderer?” How big is the project that we are working on? Are you a full-fledged clutter bug or just floating on the edge?
Our organizing sessions are normally scheduled in 4 hour blocks of time, although there are times when we work more than the four hour block if our client requests us to do so.
I work full time, could you organize my house if I’m not there?
We believe that organizing starts with a sorting process and in most cases includes some purging. We want you to learn organizing skills while we are working with you so that you can maintain an organized way of life. You can be the only person who decides what is being kept and what is being donated. Once the sorting has been done, it is possible that we can organize your home without you being present. However, we will have defined the “rules” of where you want things put and how you want them organized.
Will you get rid of things if I decide not to keep them?
Organizing does not necessarily mean that you have to get rid of things, but if you do decide to donate items, we will arrange this for you.
