PACKING, UNPACKING and ORGANIZING

Move management including pre-packing, packing, unpacking and organizing by Organized by Keli & Co

Professional Organizer Denver, CO

Here is the truth... moving can be a stressful and miserable experience. It causes a disruption to daily life and creates stress before, during and after the actual move out occurs.

Before the move there is house hunting, purchasing and dreaming about the possibilities. And the decisions regarding schools and other features in the new community. Where to shop, socialize, workout... the list goes on.

Then there are always the intentions to purge the items that are unnecessary or unwanted prior to moving so that you can start your new beginning with a clean slate. So many decisions! So little time!

Hiring a moving company to handle the heavy lifting and transport of your belongings. Then there is the packing and labeling boxes for which many people hire a company to complete the actual packing services.

Packing services include sourcing supplies, carefully packing and labeling each box

Hiring an organizing service to source packing materials, pack all the boxes and focus on creating order and systems will create an efficient and effective move.

Getting organized before the move is about more than hiring movers. This is the opportunity to edit your belongings and create the lifestyle you are dreaming of in the new space. Our services can include what we like to call the "pre-move edit" so that we sort and categorize items, you "shop" the categories for what stays/goes, and then we handle the donating and packing process from there.

This service ensures that you aren't paying the cost of moving for excess items that will not belong in the new home.

Then, for the actual move, the logistics become important. Managing the movers and ensuring that all items are placed in the correct rooms will make unpacking more efficient.

Now, it's time to UNpack and organize the whole house.

It’s exhausting, especially if you’re also juggling your kids, your job, or a challenge like an out-of-state move.

Like most things in life, having support makes moving much less stressful.

While you might hire a moving company to pack and/or move your stuff... did you know that...

You can hire a team of home organizers to unpack and set up the new life in the new home.

Home Organizers Denver

Set Your Entire House Up Right from the Beginning

As organizers, we often hear from clients who have lived in a space for months – or even years– and never fully unpacked or set up their homes properly.

We totally understand that many people are busy and pressed for time. Unpacking and organizing usually get put on the backburner…until the lack of systems and piles of clutter become completely overwhelming!

That’s why it’s so important to set your home up right from the start. Doing this helps prevent clutter and disorganization down the road, and you’ll feel settled in your new home that much sooner.

What’s the Difference Between Movers and Professional Organizers offer Unpacking Services?

Have you ever heard of the "OHIO" method for unpacking a home? A lot of moving companies offer what they refer to as unpacking and many of them use what’s called the “OHIO” strategy.

This means that the movers remove an item from a box and set it on a nearby flat surface. Only Handle It Once.. OHIO.

Nice strategy for some situations but when moving into a new home it does not minimize the stress level.

The goal of these unpacking services is to remove boxes and packing paper from the premises. While this is definitely a benefit of hiring their services, it only accomplishes the single goal of removing the paper and boxes.

Now comes the hard part... making tough decisions about the best use of space and how to make it look beautiful. And what about function and usability?

At Organized by Keli & Co we work WITH the movers to create an efficient process to get the boxes out and your happy place settled in.

The decision making and mental as well as physical energy required to settle into the new space now land on you.

An unpacking service run by organizers will take this process several steps further. Organizing our clients’ homes is our jam, so our goal is to not only remove items from boxes, but to find the right spots for your belongings and make your new home functional from the get-go. 

In the span of a few days, we can unpack and set up your kitchen, your pantry, your bathrooms, your closets, your home office, even your garage – and you won’t have to lift a finger (unless you want to)! 

Plus we have the knowledge and experience to bring in the right organizing products that will make your home even more functional, saving you time and money in the long run.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by an upcoming move or don’t have time to unpack and organize, hire Organized by Keli & Co to pack and/or unpack for you. 

It’s so worth it to be unpacked, organized, and enjoying your new home from day one!
