1. Are you going to make me get rid of everything?
You're the boss. We're here to support you, ask you some probing questions and deliver some tough love, if needed. If you need to keep everything, we keep everything. We just find a better way to keep it.
2. Do I have to buy a ton of new storage units/baskets/bins?
First things first, we use what you have. Any purchases made should be thoughtful and specific to your space. If you'd like us to shop for you a 10% mark up will be charged along with our hourly rate of $65.
3. Do I have to be there the whole time?
We can work together, you can hand over the project completely, or anything in between.
4. How do I get things started?
First, call, email or fill out our contact form. Next, we have a free 15-30 minute consult on the phone. It's helpful if you can text or email pictures of your space so we get an idea of what's what. We can also Skype or FaceTime our consultation or meet in person - it's your choice. Having someone in your personal space (home or office) is no small thing. It's important to begin to establish a mutual trust and comfort for both parties during the consultation. We'll go through the session steps, talk about your goals and if it's a Go for both of us, we'll book a time to get started.
5. How long will it take to get my space organized?
It depends. Will you be a quick decision-maker? Are we dealing with sentimental or inherited items? Is the space shared with others? Do you have storage solutions on-hand or is a shop necessary? Are we dealing with paper? Photos? Your answers to these and other questions factor into the pace of our work together. A 3 hour Starter session may do the trick for smaller projects and can also enlighten the pace anticipated for larger projects. Admittedly, your space didn't get to where it's at overnight. It will take time to get it to where you want it. Please know, providing value for your time and dollars spent is paramount to us at Organizing Edmonton.
