Moving from my Home of almost 25 years

I knew I would need help purging, packing and organizing the move from my home of almost 25 years into a condo. Based on the excellent reviews on HomeStars, I contacted Pauline of Simply Home. They were amazing. They helped me purge virtually every aspect of my belongings and then carefully packed the remainder that would be moved. Pauline engaged some excellent movers. On moving day, Pauline was with me all day to oversee the move and then stayed to do a bit of initial organizing at the condo. Finally, Leah...her EXCELLENT organizer came for 2 days to help me finish unpacking and get the condo and storage unit well organized. I cannot recommend Simply Home highly enough. Thank you Pauline and team!

The ladies who packed all the boxes were beyond professional
The movers were very organized and completed the packing and unpacking perfect , my parents loved everyone involved which was very important to me ,thy are now settled in their new residence in Taunton Mills and love it!
If you want a worry free move , I recommend you call Pauline at Simply Home Downsizing

Hi Joe, WOW! We are extremely flattered by your lovely review...thank you! You and Grace were so organized that it made our job easy. We were honoured to assist your parents with their move. Moving to a senior's residence after 68 years in the same home is a monumental event. We were thrilled to offer the help you needed.

Decluttering of Parental Home

Simply Home was recommended to us by our real estate agent. She was so right. Rosalind and her crew work smart and fast. They quickly sorted through some 60 years of my parent's belongings. Then they organized an online auction which added great value to their service. They helped us pack items to be moved and also with the final junk clearance before the property closed. In short, Simply Home made a huge task very manageable.

Staging my home for sale

I was lucky enough to find this company through my realtor and boy was I surprised by their services.
Not only did they provide me with beautiful staging which suited the style for my home, but they also provided me with excellent contractors to help put my home in tip top shape. Before I had found them, I was overwhelmed by the amount of work involved in preparing my home for sale. An excellent company/all in one stop shop to help you if your looking for a little help or even a lot.
They are efficient, reliable, friendly, creative, affordable and easy to work with and work around your schedule. I would def use them again and would highly recommend them to anyone.
My home was on the market for 1 day and sold in a bidding war in 1 day over asking. Very pleased with the outcome.

Garage and shed organization

Our garage has been such a disaster that I have been actively avoided going in there. If I had to go in to drag something out, it was always so frustrating as everything had to be moved around the stacked boxes and piles of junk in there. I finally realized that my good intentions had come to naught over many years and hired a team from Simply Home Downsizing. The day before they arrived I realized that it would probably make sense to deal with our back shed at the same time, as it was so stuffed with old junk that I hadn't been inside it in years. Pauline happily accommodated this last minute request.
The team arrived and did an extraordinary job of sorting the masses of stuff in both the garage and shed while at the same time building new shelving units. I carried on with my day and would occasionally be called in to make decisions. They were so effective that they finished early and moved into our basement to start reorganizing our inside storage area.

Our shed and garage are now neatly organized with excess, unused storage space and items have been logically stored in the appropriate location (e.g. it's winter so summer sports gear is in the shed and winter sports are in the garage for easy access). With the extra space in the garage, there is a spillover effect on the whole house as we have been able to move tools and other appropriate items into the garage. And as an extra bonus, they tidied up the basement storage area and created a secondary pantry with shelving.

I am thrilled with team and the work they did. They were extremely efficient but still sympathetic to the difficulty I had making decisions at times or parting with certain items. It is liberating to be rid of all the junk we no longer needed, and I am very happy that items in good condition have been donated to others who need them. At the end of day I felt like a reality show contestant who cries with joy at the big reveal.

Hi R, We are so thrilled you are satisfied with the end result of your garage and shed organizing project. The team loved working with you. And although you may have been sentimental about some of the items going to donation, you were a thoughtful and quick decision-maker. Thank you for trusting the Simply Home Downsizing Team!

Home downsizing/decluttering

Simply home helped us with preparing my elderly fathers home for a move into a much smaller retirement apartment. The helped us with several facets of the project- from decluttering and organizing rooms to facilitating the move and setting up the new space. Always compassionate and respectful, both my father and I felt we could rely on their service to complete jobs which were otherwise unattainable due to size or due to the overwhelming nature of the task!

Condo clearout

Wow, what a fantastic job Simply Home did for us!
We were facing the daunting task of clearing out our parents' condo, where they had lived for nearly 40 years. As you might imagine, there was a LOT of "stuff"... but Pauline and her crew made it easy. They packed everything up and moved it out in just one day, with much of it donated to charitable causes, including a women's shelter. We couldn't be happier with the service. Five gold stars!!

Staging

They did an amazing job reorganizing my house (and my life). They were extremely accommodating with the fact that I have 4 children living in the house during the sale and make it easy to prep for showings while keeping some precious things belonging to the kids in their rooms. Both my houses sold in a week thanks to Rosalind and her team!

Home organizing

We used Simply Home Downsizing for home organizing and de-cluttering, as we get ready for a renovation. They were responsive, professional and friendly. A true pleasure to deal with!
