Our Signature One Day Move-In*

Our unique approach makes sure our clients keep smiling on Move Day!

Before the move, we create furniture layouts of your new home to make sure your favorite furniture pieces fit, and to assess how much storage you will have. This then determines how we approach the packing.

We declutter to prepare the house for the market, and begin packing non-essentials right away. As it gets closer to Move Day, we complete the Downsizing (or "Right-sizing"!) and finish the pack and move prep. Because of our careful planning and organization, our team and truck work like clockwork on Move Day!

On Move Day: We usually start at 8:30am and finish by dinnertime!

The day includes:

  • Coordinating all details with the new community (if applicable)
  • Securing and supervising the movers (the "guys with the muscles and the truck")
  • Final packing of items that were needed the night before the move
  • Placing of furniture exactly as designed on Floor Plan
  • Unpacking all boxes and bins and storing items in the new home
  • Making beds, organizing the kitchen, bathrooms, and closets
  • Connecting TVs and Computers, etc.
  • Artfully designing bookcases, hutches, and curio cabinets
  • Displaying decorative items in an artful way
  • Hanging artwork (on move day or soon after) so your new house feels like home!

*Very large homes or client-packed moves may require a Two Day Move-In

  • Designing beautiful and functional layouts for your new home (or redesigned current home)
  • Planning your pack and move based on furniture placement and available storage in your new home.

How does this make move day smoother? Our move teams know exactly where to place furniture, and we can make sure you don’t bring more than can fit in your new home – so there’s no need to dig you out after the truck leaves!

Liquidations: Online Whole-Home Auctions

Cardboard Boxes labelled for auction

Great for major downsizing moves, estate sales, and divorces - our online auctions have an average 98% sale rate and are the fastest and easiest way to clear out a house! Our Liquidations Manager is credentialed through the American Society of Estate Liquidators and will plan and manage your Whole-Home Online Auction from setup to pickup!

How does a Whole-Home Online Auction work?

  • You move out, and remove any items from the home that you want to keep or give to family.
  • Our Liquidations Manager creates an auction plan and removes non-saleable items from the home.
  • Saleable items are organized into lots.
  • Lots are photographed and uploaded lots to the auction website with detailed descriptions.
  • Auction is advertised through social media and is live for about 7 days.
  • Buyers pay in advance, and are escorted directly to their purchases by Liquidations Staff on Pickup Day.
  • Any unsold items are hauled to donation and discard so house is completely empty and ready to be cleaned and sold!

Please note, auction consultations are $175 for one hour.
