Answers To Your Burning Questions
What Would You Like to Know?
Is there a fee for an in-home consultation?
There is no fee for our initial one hour in-home consultation. We provide an estimate for decluttering, packing and unpacking services following that visit to your home.
How long does it usually take to declutter?
Typically we spend between 10 -30 hours decluttering a home, but it depends on how many spaces we are tackling and how much you are getting rid of. We can give you an estimate of time and cost once we have the initial in-home consultation.
How long does it take to pack a house? Pack a condo?
We like to get you packed in 1 day regardless of size. Therefore we book as many team members as needed to accomplish that goal. However, if you have a very large home, and/or a large volume of items we may need to book 2 days to pack.
Who does the decluttering?
We provide you with a team of professional organizers (from 1 to 6) depending on the size of the job, and your required time-frame. The members of this team will also be your packing/unpacking team.
Do you provide the packing supplies?
We provide all the packing supplies – we simply add the cost to your invoice. We have a good relationship with a moving store and we pass on our professional discount to you.
Do you take away items being donated to charity?
We ensure that all items you donate are mindfully donated – we book our removal partner (Good Moves Transportation) to do a pick-up of these items and a drop off at the charity of your choice.
Do you take away garbage, recycling and toxic items?
We have a specialized removal company that will pick up all items going to a transfer station for garbage, recycling or toxic disposal.
