Downsizing service:packing, donation & storage

I am POA of a friend who transitioned into a retirement facility and I needed someone who could help to donate, remove garbage and store furniture, clothing and various household items in order to prepare for the sale of his home. Her team was efficient, friendly and professional from start to finish and Pauline went above and beyond to help alleviate a potentially stressful situation. I highly recommend Simply Home and would not hesitate to use their services in the future.

Packing and unpacking

This service saved my from major panic and anxiety moving with two kids while working during lockdown.
They were like packing fairies who made me feel stable during the most unstable of times.

Above and Beyond

I sought help with downsizing and moving--from a large condo (with a lot of stairs) to a small semi-detached house. I also had to find good homes for over a thousand books. Pauline and her team undertook everything I asked for. They cleared the condo for staging; contacted the autioneers and other buyers I needed; packed books and furniture to go to dealers or to charities, and arranged for transport; and packed for and supervised the move itself. Moving Day was a breeze for me. It's a great team but Pauline is the star, invariably flexible and positive. She really goes above and beyond.

Decluttering perfection

Pauline and her crew took the anxiety out of sifting through the clutter and making the house pristine. They were punctual, personable and very professional. They took the emotion out of determining what to show and what to pack. Very appreciated. In just a few hours, the house was ready for the movers to clear everything, and the staging to begin. We could never have done anywhere near as good a job ourselves. Thank you Pauline and crew!

Estate of 70 Years

Pauline took charge and quickly made all the arrangements necessary to empty out our family home of 70 years - 3 storeys plus a double garage packed full of stuff. She is an outstanding, capable and effective professional. Her contacts are all first quality and her level of dedication to get the job done within our urgent time frame was simply awe-inspiring to observe. She lifted the burden from our shoulders during a time of stress and sadness, and actually made the process fun too. Her sensitivity and kindness and confidence bolstered us all. She knew what she was doing at every level, from the auction houses to the organizers brought to our home, to the movers and junk removal workers. All worked hard to make it happen. Thank you Pauline; you were a godsend.

Hi "R", Wow! This is a heart-warming, extremely thoughtful review of our services. We loved working with you, "B" and "J", to assist you with decision-making, and setting up two separate auctions. We wish you success with the home sale, and hope we can meet up for final celebration once the house closes. Thank you!! -The Simply Home Downsizing Team

had a great experience

We had a great experience with Pauline and her team. We appreciated their attention to detail, timely responses and flexibility to suit our schedule. Their recommendations helped us prepare our family home for sale without worry or stress. The staged home looked beautiful and we are so glad we had Pauline and her team’s help. The cost of services is approximate and covered staging, deep cleaning and some minor repairs.

Decluttering of house to prepare for sale

Pauline and her team do more than just help to declutter and remove junk. They helped us donate items to charitable causes and organize those pick ups, they helped us dispose of hazardous materials, take away old appliances and meticulously clean the house afterwards. They provide a customized approach to every household. So happy with their services, professionalism and level of care.

Cleaning out my Mother's condo

Pauline and her crew were a delight to work with......when I first met her, I knew she would be a good fit.....she was always pleasant, efficient and very quick and responsive to my texts, calls and emails. And her packer Mary was great as well as the movers themselves......all in all, I'd give them 5 stars from beginning to end......and I will definitely recommend their company to anyone who needs to downsize, move etc.

Highly recommend!

Rosalind and her team at Simply Home recently helped us in the sale of our home. They made the whole process effortless and took away the anxiety of trying to organize all our belongings after 20 years. They are professional, flexible, punctual and efficient. Our house looked wonderful to prepare for the sale thanks to Rosalind and her team. Rosalind coordinated the decluttering, purging, storage, moving and staging and it all ran like clockwork. I highly recommend Simply Home!

Home Sale

Having to move and downsize after 20 years in my home seemed like a daunting task. Rosalind and her wonderful team made this process seamless. From the initial consultation to the final move, Simply Home was with me every step of the way. Their friendly staff treated my items with respect, were on time and meticulous in their work.

Rosalind understands the emotional and physical challenges of downsizing. I would highly recommend Simply Home and their team of professionals.
