Did you know that moving is considered one of the most stressful life situations we go through? If you've ever moved before, you know there's truth in that. After figuring out the where, when, and how of moving from home to home, there's still the daunting part that haunts many homeowners…packing!
Then after packing up an entire home full of your family's possessions, and moving, when you finally arrive at your new home, there still remains the task of unpacking. We've all been there - exhausted from moving and wishing we could snap our fingers and magically have all the scattered moving boxes unpacked and organized.
If you've hired movers, they get the job halfway done by moving stuff from one location to the next. Some even say they can pack and unpack for you, but we are here to humbly brag and tell you why we are even better than moving companies for packing and unpacking your home. And why the next time you move, you need the Hello Simplified team of professional organizers!
1. We pack systematically and label boxes clearly.
Moving companies that pack for you may go into a room, pack what's there in boxes, and label it broadly as the current space it's in. For instance, if you have a ton of books in the bedroom of your current home, they will pack those and label them "bedroom" - even if those books will be in the den in your new home. The random kids' toys under your living room sofa? They'll be tossed into the living room box! Then when you get to your new home, you're starting with mixed boxes of stuff that doesn't actually belong where it's placed. The last thing anyone wants to do after an exhausting move is unpack, sort and haul items around to different rooms.
That's where we come in! We start your move off on the right foot. Our professional organizers will systematically pack your home, categorizing boxes and labeling them specifically and clearly (kitchen: everyday dishes, upstairs bathroom: kids' towels, vs. just kitchen, bathroom). We label boxes based on what room they'll go in in your NEW home. So movers know exactly where to place items, making for easy unpacking. With clearly labeled boxes you'll know what to prioritize when unpacking and you can easily find what you're searching for.
2. We help you declutter, take donations, and would NEVER pack trash or expired items.
When you hire movers, they are there to do one thing - move. It's not uncommon for them to pack trash, expired food, and even broken items. Why pay to move things you will only toss on the other end of the process? That's why we also encourage decluttering before your move. We can help you go through your household items and ensure you're only packing what you want and need to pack. We even take care of hauling away your donations!
3. We don't just unpack boxes and leave; we organize and set up your home.
While some movers will "unpack" by emptying the contents of boxes, they don't put things away. This leaves you, the new homeowner, with a mess to clean up. With school and work schedules and the sheer volume of boxes, setting up and organizing a new home can take weeks or even months. It's overwhelming, so you quickly throw items into kitchen cabinets without much thought, thinking you'll figure it out and move items later. But next thing you know, 5 years have gone by and items are still where you originally put them.
However, with us, we unpack, put away, and organize for you quickly and efficiently in a thought-out manner using all our best practices and professional organizing knowledge. We can even make a custom product list for your space, do all the shopping, implementation of products and returns, so everything is 100% organized from start to finish.
4. We take the stress out of moving in and start you on the best foot possible.
Can you picture how nice it would be to move into a new home without stressing about finding your kitchen utensils, clothing, or sifting through boxes? Instead, everything will be exactly where it needs to be, organized and ready for you to start enjoying your new space. It sounds like magic, right? But it's just what we do! We love to simplify life for our clients at Hello Simplified.
Our goal is to lift the stress from your life. Our packing & unpacking services are one way we can help. Moves are often rushed and stressful, and there are a million and one things to figure out. Moving companies move your items in and then you're on your own. The last thing you want to consider is where to put those kitchen dishes - yet it's essential for your daily functionality. As professional organizers, we do this every day, and we'd be delighted to set up your home for you, so you’re organized and in love with your new home from the start.
