We’ll just say it: moving kinda sucks. It’s super stressful and disrupts your life for weeks (or maybe months), plus there are so many logistics to manage.
Packing up one home is a lot of work, only to have to UNpack everything once you’re in your new home. It’s exhausting, especially if you’re also juggling your kids, your job, or a challenge like an out-of-state move.
Like most things in life, having support makes the moving process much less stressful. While you might hire a moving company to pack and/or move your stuff, did you know that you can hire pros to unpack for you as well? Game changer!
Set Your Home Up Right from the Start
As professional organizers, we often hear from people who have lived in a space for months – or even years! – and never fully unpacked or set up their homes properly.
We totally understand that many people are busy and pressed for time. Unpacking and organizing usually get put on the backburner…until the lack of systems and piles of clutter become completely overwhelming!
That’s why it’s so important to set your home up right from the start. Doing this helps prevent clutter and disorganization down the road, and you’ll feel settled in your new home that much sooner.
What's the Difference Between Movers and Professional Organizers?
A lot of moving companies offer unpacking services to varying degrees, but many of them use what’s called the “one touch” method. This means that the movers will remove an item from a box and set it on a flat surface. Their primary goal is to unpack and remove all the boxes and packing paper from your home. This definitely saves you some time, but then you’re left to figure out where everything actually belongs!
An unpacking service run by professional organizers will take this process several steps further. Organizing our clients' homes is our jam, so our goal is to not only remove items from boxes, but to find the right spots for your belongings and make your new home functional from the get-go.
In the span of a few days, we can unpack and set up your kitchen, your pantry, your bathrooms, your closets, your home office, even your garage – and you won’t have to lift a finger (unless you want to)! Plus we have the knowledge and experience to bring in the right organizing products that will make your home even more functional, saving you time and money in the long run.
If you're feeling overwhelmed by an upcoming move or don’t have the time to unpack and organize your new space, hire professional organizers to unpack for you. It’s so worth it to be unpacked, organized, and enjoying your new home from day one! Learn More.
