DEVELOP AN OVERALL MOVE PLAN:
SPC offers a one hour in-home consultation to all of our clients throughout Ohio. This is our opportunity to meet with you and customize your downsizing move plan since every time you relocate is different and every move requires attention to specific details. We will assist to get the right people and resources lined up and involved to make sure your downsize transition is organized and runs smoothly. Working together with adult children, siblings, neighbors and friends, we will help to make your move preparation smooth and move day a success.
What we do is much more than just packing and moving boxes, it is about assisting you with your life transition, and getting you to your new home – whether residential, assisted living or nursing – healthy, happy, efficiently, and cost effectively.
ORGANIZE, SORT, AND DOWNSIZE:
We guide you through the process of downsizing, sorting and separating the items that will move with you. Our professionals work closely with you and your family to identify those items that you wish to keep, sell, donate or discard. We offer professional sorting tips and techniques to help you as you prepare for your move and relocation to a new community.
SPC offers a wide range of resources to help you find a “home” for those things you will not be taking with you. We will introduce you to local estate sales companies, auction houses, online dealers and individuals who will buy your items outright. Some of our clients choose to keep the money from their sales and others choose to donate it to a favorite charity.
We also work closely with several charitable organizations. We can set up donation pick-ups and drop-offs for items that you wish to donate and provide you with an inventory list and receipt for your files.
We will take your confidential documents and have them destroyed with certification.
CUSTOMIZE FLOOR PLANS:
Our goal is to design your space to be balanced between function, safety and aesthetics. Your floor plan is one of the most important tools when preparing for your move and relocation. This will become your road map to your move as you decide what to take. We will provide you with a to-scale plan showing you how your things will fit in the new space. We will obtain a floor plan of your new residence and work with you to lay out the furniture that is important to you and will fit safely and comfortably. You will receive a copy of the plan and have an opportunity to play with the layout as part of the design process.
ARRANGE/COORDINATE MOVING COMPANIES:
We have primary relationships with professional movers in the area who understand our moving process – making the move more efficient, smooth and cost-effective. We will assist in reviewing any estimates and helping you to find ways to save on the move. Once the moving company has been chosen, we’ll coordinate all of the particulars such as dates, times, the size of the crew, securing loading docks and elevators in your current home and your new residence, and making sure all day-of-move details are in place.
ORGANIZE, PACK, UNPACK, AND SETTING ITEMS IN PLACE:
We will assist the movers in packing ALL of your belongings and will completely unpack them in your new home. We specialize in re-creating your favorite spaces, and with the help of our floor plan and a digital camera, we’ll put your books back on the shelves, food back in the pantry, collectibles into the curios and photos on your end tables. We will organize your items in your new closets and storage areas and arrange furniture to your liking.
PAINTING, CLOSET ORGANIZATION AND WINDOW DESIGN:
To complete your move, we can help with window treatment selection, custom paint selection, closet organization and other design ideas/services as needed.
MAXIMIZE NEW RESIDENCE WITH CURRENT AND NEW FURNISHINGS:
We will get creative with the furniture you currently have so that you’re not spending unnecessary money on new pieces; repurposing furniture to be used differently than before. There may not be room for two living room side tables, but you can put the extra to good use as a nightstand.
SHOPPING FOR NEW ITEMS AS NEEDED:
We will do the shopping with you or for you. We will maximize efficiency and cost by shipping items to your new residence or picking them up on moving day. Light handyman work is available to help with the assembly of new pieces when needed.
LIGHT HANDYMAN WORK:
Light handyman services are available upon request. If you are relocating to a retirement community or nursing home, we will coordinate with staff and management as necessary.
