Unpacking. How It Works
Good things take time and we work with each client to create a timeline to achieve the best results.
For some clients, faster is better and for others, it's a process that needs to work strategically
around their unique work and family schedule.
For all jobs and timelines, we work on a 4-step process:
CONSULT | 2. UNPACK | 3. INSTALL | 4. REVEAL
Each job is unique and the times listed below are approximate. Once we have have had our initial consultation, we can give you a better idea of overall timing and costs.
30 min to 1 hour
It all starts when we come to your house for a walk-through and a chance for us to get to know you, your space, and your goals.
We'll measure your space for any organizing products you may want to add to the project and set a date for the next step: unpacking.
There is a $50 consultation fee that will be waived for clients that agree to book our services within 7 days of the consultation.
Approx. 15 min
Our favorite part of every job!
At the end of the each room installation, we take the time to walk you through the final placement of your items, showing you what we've done, why we've organized that way, and where all your things have ended up. Then, we start unpacking the next room, until we've finished your home.
We work room-by-room, typically starting with the kitchen. We unpack, categorize your items and add in any organizing products needed (we purchase based on your budget and you only pay for what we use). We will have done any shopping needed prior to our first day of work ($100 fee per shopping trip). Then, we move to the next step: installation.
We work on an hourly rate of $200/hr (one rate for 2 people). Additional costs may include organizational products (no markup), installation services (shelving, building furniture, etc.), and a flat rate shopping fee (one per project). Additional fees/costs are discussed at the consultation.
For us, it's where the magic takes place. Folding, stacking, alphabetizing and color-coding, oh my: we put away your things with usage and convenience in mind. If you are present, we will consult you on any of your specific needs and wants as we go. We like to put the finishing touches on each room/space before the final step: the reveal.
