home staging

Moving is a stressful process – why not let the experts handle it?

Calm Order offers moving services for every stage of the moving process, including pre-moving organization and decluttering, home staging, and organized unpacking. We take care of all the details so that you can have a relaxing and stress-free moving experience!

Pre-moving organization and decluttering

In our pre-moving organization and decluttering process, we work with you to go through your items and determine which ones are unwanted, unused, and unneeded. We believe it’s important to go through your items before you start packing, to help you save time and money transporting unnecessary items to your new home. During this process, we can also help you find places to donate or dispose the items you no longer need.

Home staging and styling

This process is an important part to our home styling and staging services. Decluttering your possessions can instantly transform your home and make it ready for special events, open houses, or your own enjoyment. With this service, we use items that you already own but find ways to reuse, repurpose, and reposition them in a way that brings more calm and order to your space. We don’t think its necessary to completely redesign your home or buy new furniture just to stage it. Often, homeowners already have everything they need, they just aren’t using these items in the best possible way!

Organized unpacking

Calm Order also helps with one of the most important parts of the moving process: unpacking your items in your new home. When we unpack your items, we make sure that they are placed in a way that makes sense for you and your lifestyle. Whether you need us to unpack a single room or your entire home, we’ll make sure everything finds its proper place. We can also help you find the supplies and tools you need to maintain your new and organized home. Whether its storage-maximizing closet organizers, bins, or kitchen cupboard inserts, we can make sure that every area in your home works efficiently.

We cover all the details

During this complex process, smaller tasks and details can get lost in the cracks. When you’re dealing with a move in the middle of your busy life, it can be hard to keep track of everything. That’s where we come in: not only do we take care of the more obvious and complex tasks, we are also there to make sure no details, no matter how small, are overlooked. For example, we make sure that you have everything you need for your first night with what we call the “first night kit.” With this kit, we make sure you have all of the essential items you’ll need in an easily accessible place for when you spend the first night in your new home. This way, you won’t have to worry about immediately unpacking everything once you walk in the door. We make sure that items like toothbrushes, phone chargers, food, and clothing is ready and waiting for you.

Finding a new home and putting your current one on the market is stressful enough, so having a professional organizer to help with each stage of the moving process will make your life a lot easier!

Moving Season is here: How to get organized

Moving Season is here: How to get organized

Spring is commonly referred to as moving season – the time where people sell their homes and get ready to move into their new ones.

Preparing to move into a new home? We can help you get started!

You’ve recently put your home on the market, purchased a new home, and now you’re ready to move. But where do you start?

First things first: packing up all of your belongings is a great excuse to go through everything that you own and purge all the unnecessary items that you have collected in your soon-to-be former home.

 

When moving into a new home or downsizing, often your new place is smaller or a completely different layout than what you had before, so it can be helpful not having to drag all the extra items that you have. These items, more often than not, stay in the moving box and end up in a closet somewhere, taking up valuable space collecting dust when it could have been put to better use or donated/sold to someone else who could actually use it.

 

The less items you have to box up, organize, store, transport, unpack, and find a new home for, the better! Not only will your new space feel more clean, organized, and collected, but YOU will feel this way too. Moving doesn’t have to be hard; in fact, in can be the opposite: an opportunity for you to bring order to your life and start fresh in your new home.

 

De-cluttering your home is not only beneficial to you going forward, but can make a world of a difference when it comes to staging your home for buyers. There’s often no need to hire a staging company or designer and renting items to enhance the features of your home. Simply rearranging furniture, taking some items out, or showcasing collectibles you may have hidden away can work like a charm – and it’s something that Calm Order can help with!

 

Calm Order can be a great help for people who are feeling stressed and anxious about their move – our Moving Coordination services offer a personal contact that will be there every step of the way, from packing and loading to unloading. We also offer an Unpacked to Organized service (more on that in our next post!) to help you get settled and organized in your new home.

 

What exactly can Calm Order help with?

 

·       We assist with de-cluttering, downsizing, packing, organizing and furniture placement to enhance your home’s best features.
