- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I charge $70 per hour; which includes 30 miles round trip & basic supplies; garbage bags, labels, etc. I do charge a mileage fee of $.65 per mile when it is over the 30 miles. I can research & shop for containers/storage items at an additional charge. Seniors & teachers will receive a discounted rate of $65 per hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I typically will ask a new customer to send photos for review, so I understand the needs & wishes for the area to be worked on. This helps me with estimating the amount of time it will take to complete. Please note that decluttering does take more time, as I will be working alongside the client & it can be an emotional & tiring experience.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a member of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers) and have taken many online courses, watched several webinars and read numerous books & articles. I managed a small, family run business for over 35 years. This gave me experience with project management, assisting others, setting & reaching goals. This has helped me with quite a few clients who have needed their home offices organized or needed assistance with paper management.
