Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect when hiring a Professional Organizer?
Professional Organizers are committed to helping you get to a better place in your life, so you know that you won’t be judged for where you are now. Tidy Spaces clients are treated with respect, dignity, and kindness…and all the information is considered confidential.
How Do I Get Started?
Fill out the form on the Contact page and we will call you to schedule a consultation. A walk through is required. You will be charged $75 which is credited to your invoice once you book us for a service. During this time we will review your area(s) of concern. You will let us know what works and doesn’t work for the space. We will begin working on a plan to bring peace to your space based on your personality and organizational needs.
Should I clean up before you come?
No. There is no need to clean up your space before your assessment or any of the professional organizing sessions! It is best if we can see the space how it typically looks and functions on a daily basis. There is nothing to be embarrassed about because when we come to your space we are here to solve the problem areas. We have a 100% No Judgement Guarantee.
How long will it take to get organized?
Probably less time than you can imagine! Each space is unique and the rate of organization often depends on how quickly a person can make decisions. We will guide you to ensure each session is productive. We keep clients on task, but never rush a person or pressure them to get rid of anything. If you need a short break we can work independently to keep the project moving. Note: we have a $50/session travel fee for any job over an hour drive, and also a 3-hour session minimum.
Do the packages include the cost of organizing products?
Virtual packages include organizing supplies. Senior transition packages include packing supplies. All other packages do not include supplies. The cost of organizational tools (beyond printed labels) is a separate fee, because you will likely want hangers, containers, liners etc. that tie into your current design theme.
Will you help me donate the things I choose to part with?
We have several partners we regularly provide donations for, local domestic shelters, and Habitat for Humanity. We can transport items for domestic shelters and coordinate a pick up time for larger items. We will provide a tax receipt for those donations.
Do I need to be present during the professional organizing session?
We will need your input in the beginning so that your decluttered space will be well suited to your personality and needs. After that we can continue sorting and organizing based on your initial direction. There may be a few changes needed at the end to ensure the project is the best fit for you. If you prefer to work with us, the job may go faster and you will benefit by learning some professional organizing strategies and maintenance to give your space order.
Are you insured?
Yes, we maintain a general liability policy.
Do you have a cancellation fee?
We respectfully ask for a minimum of 48 hours notice for all cancellations. All late Cancellations or No Shows appointments will incur a cancellation fee of $100.00. A credit card may be required to book future appointments.
How do I pay for services?
Single sessions are due upon completion. Package sessions require 50% payment, 24 hours prior to start date. The remaining balance is due upon completion of the project. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, cash, check, and Venmo.
