Moving can be one of the most stressful events we experience. Moving from a house where you’ve lived and raised a family for many years can be even more stressful. There are memories etched into the walls that are hard to leave and an accumulation of “stuff” that we’re attached to.
Michelle Kavanaugh, owner of Organize Senior Moves understands this. So does her team of 20+ women, who, with compassion and empathy, help guide clients overwhelmed with the idea of moving.
“Many times, our clients are extremely overwhelmed and don’t know where or how to begin,” said Kavanaugh. “Once we meet with them they feel completely at ease and are even thankful that someone is there to help them during this process.”
That process involves doing as much or as little as a client needs, including:
- Develop floor plans for your new home
- Organize/prep for an estate sale
- Helping decide which items to donate, sell, toss or take
- Stage and prepare home for sale
- Recommend moving companies, estate sale professionals and auction houses
- Coordinate and oversee the move
- Unpack and organize new home, including hooking up electronics, hanging artwork and photos
- Take care of any other details you’re concerned about
For Kavanaugh and her team, the best day for them is the day their client walks through the door of their new home. Some clients have even compared the experience to being on a home show on HGTV. “The smiles on their faces when they walk in is why we do what we do,” she said. “It’s the best part of our job.”
Despite the name, Organize Senior Moves (OSM) isn’t limited to just downsizing, they can also help with your organizing needs. If you have closets that are overrun with clothes, an office that has seen better days or a guest room that is unable to actually host a friend, OSM is your answer to decluttering and organizing. Basements, attics, major cleanouts…they handle it all. “Not job is too big or too small for us,” said Kavanaugh. “Sometimes you just need someone else to help get you started on your quest for a more organized life. With less “stuff” around, you can reduce stress and anxiety in your life.”
Additionally, OSM also helps with all moves, not just senior moves.
