A Professional Organising and Decluttering Service in Geelong, Victoria

Plan your relocation so you can embrace the change instead of feeling stressed and anxious before you even start.

We look at your relationship with ‘your stuff’, how it impacts your choices and how we can make your move as simple and easy as possible.

 

We take the overwhelm out of downsizing or moving, ensuring a seamless experience and reducing your moving costs.

 

“We needed to relocate which meant a complete downsize, 17 years into a 45 day time frame. We needed direction because the big picture was totally overwhelming and we couldn’t see the ‘wood from the trees’.

With planning, Marion helped us with our previously delayed decision making about what we needed and what could potentially go. Her direction, guidance and invaluable insight and recommendations to other services, helped us produce what we set out to achieve. A seamless move.”

  • Have reached a new stage in your life where your circumstances have changed? Perhaps the kids have moved out and you want all their ‘stuff’ to follow

We give you the right support so your move can:

  • Be planned and streamlined without the pain and strain

WHERE DO WE START?

It’s all about planning…

With your visions in mind and a focus on the bigger picture, we will Identify the different kinds of clutter that exist in your life.

This will allow us to determine whether it belongs in your life as you move forward.

 

During your consultation we will discuss:

  • what you want to keep and what can go
  • how you would like to dispose of decluttered items
  • time frames
  • resources and service providers
  • handy hints for moving day

 

Let’s get it done…

This is the time we start to declutter and pack…

 

You get hands on help with:

  • Decluttering and packing each area of the home so you can have peace of mind that you have everything you ‘need’
  • Disposal of decluttered items which takes pressure off you, wondering where to take them
  • Liaising with relevant service providers to get your house up to scratch, such as garden maintenance, cleaning, rubbish removal which will help impress potential buyers

 

The move has taken place so let’s unpack…

You’re in your new home, take time to make sure everything has a place…

 

We will help you:

  • Establish your new home and prevent future clutter and/or disorganization by making sure your belongings are where you need them to be. There may even be more things that you discover you don’t need and I can take them away. Winning!
  • Get your space functional and flowing so it quickly feels like home.
  • Connect the services you will need in your new location. Think plumbers, electricians, gardeners. Tradies you can trust.

 

WHY MARION IS THE PERSON TO HELP YOU…

 

I know from experience it’s better to declutter and sort prior to the move, rather than have to find places for things I don’t need at the other end.

When you decide to take the first step, you will feel nervous and unsure but it doesn’t have to stay that way.

I help clients by guiding them through the process with care and patience meaning, they make the move free of stress and overwhelm.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS…

 

Who is this for?

For those who are preparing to downsize; who need to relocate to assisted living or a new home; or want to simplify their life by minimising in possessions.

Who is this not for?

This is not for people finding it difficult to focus and be organised or are finding that clutter is taking over causing unwelcome stress. If this sounds like you, you will find my ESSENTIAL HOME PACKAGE more beneficial.

When should I start preparing for my move?

As soon as you’ve made the decision to relocate. We can start before you engage a real estate agent – remember those one percenters? We can even start before you’ve identified your new home.

Will you move my items to my new home?

No, this will be done by a removalist. They have trained staff to accommodate the removal of your belongings. That said, I can facilitate on your behalf to ensure the move is as stress free as possible.

What if the move doesn’t go ahead?

Great news! You have a freshly decluttered, organised home. In fact, you’ll probably wonder why you ever wanted to leave.

What if I have more questions?

Too easy! Just give me a call on 0414 397 796 and let’s get them answered.

 

LET’S CHAT ABOUT YOUR MOVE AND MAKING YOUR NEXT HOME A PLACE OF CALM…

Here at A Place of Calm we know every client and their home is unique meaning, each will need a different amount of support and service.

You can always enjoy a complimentary 20 min phone consultation where we will briefly discuss your situation.

If you would like to meet face to face, an initial investment of $120 will allow for a 60 min on-site consultation to discuss your needs and requirements and for me to visually see what is going on for you.

From there, depending on your needs, we can schedule a 3hr individual session to get you started or put together a package that will allow you to gain momentum and get back some peace and harmony.

Contact me to chat about your options.
