Whether you are a senior or family downsizing a home, the task of sorting and purging can quickly become overwhelming.
When people decide to downsize themselves, their parents, or other relatives, they are forced to deal with all the decision making. Clearing through years of mementos as well as clutter and belongings that have just multiplied and collected. Our clients often wonder… “where did all this stuff come from”? This is just a normal reality!!
While some seniors sell their home to move to a retirement community or other senior care facilities, other just prefer to move to a smaller house or apartment. Eliminating much of the upkeep and excess. Instead, focusing on a simpler life.
Downsizing and moving are by far some of the hardest times for families. Bringing with it the daunting task of sorting, purging, and logistically deciding how much will fit into a new space.
With our experience, we make this goal achievable and more manageable by supporting you and your family through the process.
We start the process by observing and discussing the details of your move and planning accordingly. We need to take into consideration: time, space, and other obligations. Where to start first? How to sort and pack things for efficient unpacking?
We will help you decide what to donate, keep or trash. Plan for your donations to picked up and create an inventory for tax purposes.
Keep in mind that this is an exhaustive process and you need to be patient with yourself. Start as early as possible to reduce the stress and overwhelm. Take your time, pace yourself and DO NOT try to manage this all in just a few days. Get help, call on friends or family for support. Or, hire people who can make the process easier and smoother, being there for you throughout the process.
