Moving Assistance

Transitioning from a larger home to a smaller one can be a daunting task for anyone. Especially if your health limits your ability to work long, laborious hours of lifting and packing, or if your family is busy or lives too far from you to provide any measurable help. I provide the type of assistance a well organized and loving daughter would provide her parents. I come with a game plan in hand and I can help you reach your goal of moving without the stress of trying to do everything yourself.


How will my Moving Assistance Work?

Together we will…

  • Coordinate all the details of your move.
  • Develop plans for furniture placement in your new home.
  • Create ways to keep memories while eliminating excess items.
  • Help you determine what items are truly needed in your new home.
  • Help you pack your possessions in preparation for the move. Or if you wish, do all the packing myself or hire the moving company to professionally pack your possessions (recommended for large, high volume homes or precious antiques that require special attention)
  • Assist with the set-up or transfer of utilities, the scheduling of the mover, etc.
  • Interview, schedule and oversee movers.
  • Help you unpack your belongings at your new home (if applicable). Or if you wish, do all the unpacking for you. On the day you move in, I’ll be there to show you where everything is and get you settled into your new place.

Six Relocation Tips

  1. Start Early: Don’t wait for your home to sell.
  2. Have a Plan: Start in the heart of your home and move outward.
  3. Involve Kids or Family Members: A heart-to-heart talk about who wants what is in order.
  4. Keep Memories, not the Clutter
  5. Donate to the Charity or Person of your Choice
  6. Have a Moving Sale

Additional Services Outside the Home

  • Shopping for organizing products and supplies: $1/2 the hourly rate you’re currently paying.
  • Time spent researching and procuring other service providers for your job:  $1/2 the hourly rate you’re currently paying.

This rate will be deducted from your block-rate package.
See additional information on terms of service page.

Moving Assistance Per Hour Fees and Block-Rate Packages

Block-rate packages are for your convenience.  You’ll find these packages work great for the budget-minded person.  They save money, and they keep you motivated to get the job done.  Block rate packages are charged ½ down and ½ paid at the half way point in our working schedule.  Down payment is due upon the completion of the In-home Needs Assessment unless otherwise arranged.
