You’ve made the decision to take the next step in home organization by hiring a professional organizing service. Now what? At Major Organizers, we understand that taking the first step can seem a little intimidating. However, finding the right professional organizer doesn’t have to be a long or difficult process at all. Check out some of the tips we recommend when searching for an professional home organization company.
Assess and Communicate Your Needs
Do you want assistance organizing your whole house from attic to basement, or do you only need help with a few select rooms? Do you need in-depth, corner-to-corner help sorting through clutter, or just assistance implementing an organization system you have already devised? Knowing exactly what kind of assistance you need is key and being able to communicate this to your organizer is even more important. At Major Organizers, we appreciate that you have invited us into your personal space and will work diligently with you to accomplish your organizational goals.
Determine Your Budget
Once you have determined exactly how much and what kind of help you are looking for, be sure to consider your budget. Different professional organization firms have different pricing structures. Some charge by the hour and some charge by the job. When you’re searching for a professional organizer, we recommend working with one that has clearly set services and packages. This will ensure expectations on both sides are clear. At Major Organizers, we offer a variety of organizing services and packages to suit your budget.
Interview Different Companies
Every home organization project is different. Because of this, not every company is best for every job. We recommend gathering a list of the companies you are considering hiring and contacting them to find out more about their services. If you’re not sure what to ask when interviewing each company, consider the following:
- Can they work with my specific needs and budget?
- Do they specialize in any particular service?
- Do they have any special certifications or licenses?
- If appropriate, do they work with disabled customers?
- What sets them apart from other professional organization companies?
- Do they have references and a portfolio?
- Are they part of the Better Business Bureau?
- What is their grievance and cancellation policy?
Deciding Who to Work With
After considering all of this, remember that your relationship with your home organizing professional will be personal and unique. It’s very important to choose a company that you are comfortable with — they will be in your home and personal space, handling your personal belongings. For the best working relationship, we recommend deciding on a company that you feel has the expertise, personality, and fee structure that best matches your needs.
