Together we will make a timeline to help make your move simpler and less stressful and work with you sort, organize, and “rightsize” your belongings. We then work with you to design a floorplan to make sure your new home is arranged the way you want with safety and space-effectiveness in mind.
After that, we arrange for and coordinate a final clean out of your old home, which can include:
Assisting in dispersing your belongings to family members and friends
Or, arranging for bulk trash and recycling to pick up unwanted items
We can even prepare your home for show and sale, so you don’t have to lift a finger.
The move itself is the most stressful part of a relocation, so we’ll coordinate with one of our trusted moving companies to ensure your belongings are moved with care. Our team will pack and unpack your possessions with care, and place them in their proper place in your new home. While this is going on, our executive team will walk through the finer details to help you settle into your new home.
Our special White Glove Service will ensure that your beds are made, your clothes are hung, and your kitchen is unpacked and functional all on day one.
