Move Managers are different from the moving professionals you hire who come with a truck and load up all your stuff. We do not physically take your items from A to B but do for example, arrange for local movers and supervise them on moving day. What you pay will depend on how much or how little help you will need. Move Managers typically offer a menu of services. If you’d like assistance with decluttering but prefer to handle packing on your own, for example, then you’ll pay accordingly.
The following could be reasons why you may use a Move Manager to simplify your move:
The thought of sorting through 30 years of clutter sends you into a panic
You’re facing health issues that would make moving tasks like packing and sorting difficult
You’re not in a position to take on the emotional and physical burdens of moving/downsizing
You don’t have the help of nearby friends and family to fill in the gaps
