Preparing To Move

Preparing To Move

Although exciting, moving may be one of the most stressful activities a person can undertake, and chances are you’ll do it a few times during your working life. There are so many details to keep track of, plans and schedules to maintain and the emotional ups and downs to deal with. And don’t forget the physical work of packing and unpacking, sometimes while still maintaining a normal work schedule. That’s where Helping Hands Personal Services can be a life saver.

We have worked with families moving across the country, and across town. Our clients include couples, families, and senior citizens, who may simply be downsizing or perhaps moving to a community that is specially suited to their changing needs.

Nancy can help you prepare for your move even before the packing begins by working by your side as you sort through closets, storage areas, garage and bedrooms, and help you weed through all the things you don’t use, don’t like, don’t want, or are gathering dust in a dark corner. It doesn’t make sense to pack and then pay a mover to transport items you’ll never use.

Once we’ve sorted through your possessions getting rid of the excess Helping Hands can help determine the packing supplies you’ll need, tell you where to purchase them at the best price, and if you like, professionally pack your clothing, household items, china and breakables, as well as framed art and family photos, to avoid damage in transit.

If you’re about to renovate your home, Nancy can provide the help you need both before and after. Packing your belongings in the room or rooms effected will protect your breakables and valuables from dust and grime, and keep them safe while construction takes place. Then, when your renovation is complete Helping Hands can come back and put everything back the way it was, saving you the time and hassle.
