Change is unsettling for most of us. This change might be a need to scale down possessions and move to a smaller, more efficient space and thus a need to sort and sell or donate. ChangingSpaces Move Managers will customize your plan according to your needs and timeline.
Moving is stressful and is emotionally and physically draining. Just thinking about sorting through many years of accumulated stuff can be overwhelming and paralyzing. ChangingSpaces is here to help you in a caring and respectful way. We have the organizational skills and resources to make a move run efficiently while being able to work through years of possessions and memories. An initial consultation will provide a great deal of information. Together, we will make a plan that is manageable and that fits your needs and your budget.
An overall plan can include: sorting, organizing, packing, the hiring and overseeing of a mover, staging a home to sell, donating or selling unwanted possessions and unpacking with great attention to detail. You decide how much or how little you need. And when everything is unpacked , your new home will be completely ready for living – clocks set, pictures hung, beds made and no boxes.
Your family is very special and should be treated that way. The task of helping your parents is overwhelming and can be filled with emotion. You also have a family who needs you with all of the activities and priorities that come with it. Many extended families are not living in the same city. Between career, family and other obligations, adult children are leading busier professional lives so the desire to help is there but the ability is not.
Changing Spaces can step in as an extension of you – to help plan, manage and get your parents moving in the right direction. After an initial consultation, where we listen to everyone and the corresponding goals, we will outline a plan of action and provide an estimate for what it will take to get the project done. ChangingSpaces can keep you posted along the way and involve you as little or as much as you’d like. Let us relieve you of the stress of being in the middle. We treat your parents as we would our own.
The space you have loved for so long may be too cluttered and you may see a need to organize the space and make things more accessible in your closets, drawers, shelves and cabinets. With a little bit of help the space can be reorganized to enjoy it in a new way.
ChangingSpaces at Home can help you discover new ways to use your space, making it more comfortable and easier to find things. We can provide you with a plan, guidance and hands-on help to accomplish these tasks.

With proper planning we can re-purpose your space so that you can make the most out of your home. We have resources to help get the job done efficiently and quickly.
When thinking about selling a home, sellers need to get organized, de-clutter closets, get rid of possessions not needed and find a place to sell or donate them. ChangingSpaces Move Managers can help realtors and home sellers overcome obstacles to moving by determining de-cluttering priorities and provide hands-on help to get a home “show” ready.
ChangingSpaces Move Managers can:
- Provide resources from our list of qualified and reasonably priced resources for home repairs and improvement
- Efficiently help with one-on-one sorting to eliminate unnecessary and unneeded items
- Arrange for donations or resale of possessions no longer wanted
- Arrange for disposal of trash and debris
- Pack, inventory (in detail), and coordinate extra items to be stored for later use or shipped to family members
The goal is to overcome the obstacles preventing the listing of the house and enhance the marketability of the home.
