Updated: Feb 26

Moving to a new home is an exciting yet challenging adventure that often comes with its fair share of stress! From packing up years of memories, selling your home, buying a new home and then settling into a new space, the process can be overwhelming. And don’t forget that life continues on like work, kids, etc while moving. In the chaos of relocation, one invaluable ally stands out: the professional organizer. Let’s talk about how a professional organizer that offers moving services can help you on your moving journey, from clearing out the clutter before the move to the transformative impact of stepping foot into your unpacked new home.

Clearing Out Clutter Before a Move

The first step in any successful move is conquering the clutter. Imagine stepping into your new home with only the possessions that truly matter! Letting go of your belongings that do not make sense is a strategic move that streamlines the entire process. Yes, you have to spend money to let go of the things you’ve spent money on, but this is one of the most important steps you’ll take in moving! Trained Professional Organizers like Decluttered™ are adept at guiding you through this process, helping you decide what to keep, donate, or say goodbye to.

Having sold my own home last year before my move and having sold my father’s house after his passing, plus having helped countless clients before their own sale, a clutter-free home is more appealing to potential buyers if you're putting your current residence on the market. It not only enhances the visual appeal but also creates an illusion of more space, making your home more enticing to prospective buyers. In this crucial first step, professional organizers play a key role in transforming chaos into order, setting the stage for a seamless move.

Staging the Home to Sell

Once the clutter is cleared, the spotlight turns to staging the home for sale. This is more than just arranging furniture; it's about creating an atmosphere that resonates with potential buyers. Professional organizers understand the psychology of buyers and know how to showcase your home's best features, while also allowing buyers to envision their own things in your home - which is what you want to get that high offer!

Effective home staging goes beyond aesthetics; it can significantly impact the selling price and speed of the sale. Professional organizers bring a fresh perspective, depersonalizing your walls and rooms, clearing out clutter further if needed, and adding tasteful touches to highlight the home's potential. As your home transforms into a buyer's dream, the professional touch of an organizer becomes evident, making your property stand out in a competitive market.

"The team at Decluttered™ is simply amazing! [Decluttered™] is very organized and accommodating. She meets with my sellers, assesses our needs and gets the job done! She's my go-to for listing prep and pre-staging when the seller needs a hand!"

Hiring Professional Organizers for the Move

With the clutter cleared and your home staged, the next crucial step is planning the actual move. Many Professional Organizers that offer moving services have Concierge Move Managers as part of their team, and these move managers will coordinate packing up your belongings, which can be a daunting task, and scheduling the movers.

At Decluttered™, we offer a-la-carte services that you can pick and choose based on your budget, including but not limited to clearing out clutter, staging the home, packing up your non-essentials, having the movers pack up any breakables or high value items, coordinating the movers and their schedule, and unpacking your belongings. We even go as far as having our handyman come with us to hang pictures, tv's, and other items so that you are one step closer to being settled in your new home.

Beyond the physical aspects, the emotional support provided by professional organizers during the move is invaluable. They understand that a move involves more than just logistics – it's a major life transition. Their calming presence and systematic approach help alleviate the stress associated with moving, allowing you to focus on the excitement of starting anew.

"The best thing I’ve ever spent money on! They are AMAZING! I just moved from Colorado to Texas and they made my pantry and closet look perfect. I could have never done this myself! I’ve already scheduled them for my bathroom and office!"

Unpacking and Organizing Services To Get Settled

As the boxes arrive at your new home, the unpacking phase begins. This is where the meticulous planning and organization pay off. Professional organizers excel in developing unpacking strategies that prioritize functionality and comfort. They work with you to create designated spaces for each item based on habits, ensuring that the transition to your new home is seamless.

The benefits of professional organization extend beyond the immediate post-move period. By strategically organizing your belongings, professional organizers set the foundation for long-term order and tranquility in your new space. Whether it's arranging furniture for optimal flow or creating storage solutions that maximize space, their expertise transforms your house into a well-organized and welcoming home.

In the midst of unpacking, the support provided by professional organizers becomes even more evident. Their attention to detail ensures that every item finds its rightful place, eliminating the frustration of searching for essentials in the midst of unpacked boxes. The result is a home that not only looks aesthetically pleasing but also functions seamlessly, allowing you to settle in with ease.

"Have had decluttered™ unpack me twice and the ladies are great! They set you up for success with organization systems that are easy to maintain! Highly recommend"

Hire a Professional Organizer For Your Move!

In the whirlwind of a move, professional organizers emerge as unsung heroes, guiding you through the challenges and ensuring a seamless transition. From decluttering to staging and unpacking, their expertise transforms the moving process into a well-orchestrated symphony.

As you embark on your next move, consider the profound difference that professional organizers who specialize in moving services, like Decluttered™, can make. Beyond the practical aspects of organization, they provide a sense of calm and support during a significant life transition. The investment in their services pays off not just in the efficiency of the move but in the long-term harmony of your new home, as well as the sale of your old home.

In the art of moving, professional organizers are the brushstrokes that turn chaos into a masterpiece, creating a canvas of order, beauty, and tranquility in your new living space.
