Cleaning services sometimes offer organizing, however, the services offered by home organizers look very different than a quick tidy/pick up.
While most all sites will have stock photos, request some pictures of actual in home services such as an office or garage to see their style before deciding to hire.
Check if the organizer charges by the hour for their services. Are there related cost factors to include? Shopping, product, installation, donation drop off etc...

Clients often want to know how much a specific room will cost however prices depend on the actual project. That isn't common proactive due to the variables of each project.
Professional organizers with experience will, however, be able to give an idea based on experience for the time required.
