Moving? Need help de-cluttering, packing and unpacking?

Time to transition or relocate?  Are you ready to move to match the current needs of your family? 

Whether you are a down-sizing boomer or senior, a relocating millennial, or a homeowner on the move, ShipShape helps make your transition an easy one. We orchestrate and supervise moves.

Moving is one of the most stressful events and many are overwhelmed by the daunting task of sorting through years of possessions to prepare their homes for market. We alleviate some of that strain and develop a customized plan because we know that no two moves are alike.

Change can be exciting and difficult, so we gently guide clients through the process. Most people feel awkward asking family members for help while others are looking for experience to just get it done and that’s where we come in. We can be that daughter, that sister, that friend, as well as the professional.

ShipShape is Boston and the North Shore’s premier moving and relocation company with services that include:

  • De-clutter for showing.
  • Inventory, sort, and pack possessions.
  • Provide options for sale items.
  • Move coordination.
  • Unpacking and organizing new space.

Call us about getting your house ready for showing or your upcoming move.

Selling your house?  Increase the Value! 

Want to get more money from your house sale?  Who doesn’t!  The most important step is to declutter. Clutter eats your cash!  We help you with those closets that are stuffed to the brim, and linen cabinets overflowing with towels and sheets. You want prospective buyers to think of your home as having lots of storage space, and nothing says the opposite more than crowded closets, kitchens, pantries, and storage areas.

Now is the time to evaluate what you use and need before you move. ShipShape Organize assists you with determining what to keep, donate, sell or toss.  We find homes for those items which you don’t want to bring with you.  Why move books or files that you don’t use or need!  Moving is a perfect time to clear the clutter, and not only the perfect time but imperative if you want to get the best price for your home.

We often pack items up that you know you are keeping but don’t need while the house is on the market. There is nothing wrong with neatly stacked boxes in the attic or basement, as long as it doesn’t scream clutter!

The first suggestion most stagers make is to eliminate some of your furniture pieces to make the rooms look larger.  We make suggestions on furniture placement and what is needed to be done to stage the home without you having the expense of a stager who will often recommend bringing new furniture in.  It’s amazing what a difference can be made by tidying up the bookshelves, adding a few throw pillows, plants in dark corners or taking down curtains – your space can be transformed.  Maybe it will be transformed so much, you will wish that you had done it earlier!  And, if you in fact need a stager, we provide recommendations.

Let ShipShape Organize come in and start the organizing process before you have the photographer come. Now is the time to clear the clutter and not have the “for sale” sign gracing your lawn for too long.

Prep to Move: We help you manage the move process by scheduling movers, assist with packing and supervise movers on moving day. We are problem solvers providing recommendations and solutions. Whether it be sending carpets to be cleaned, taking paperwork to be shredded, researching storage facilities, finding homes for items charities won’t take, and best of all we are not afraid to lift or get dirty! See our Moving Tips to help simplify your move.

Moving Day:  ShipShape Organize can work with movers on moving day to finalize packing and last-minute tasks.

Unpacking:  Let us help ease the transition and settle you into your new place. ShipShape unpacks belongings, makes your bed so you have a place to sleep the first night, and sets up your kitchen first thing so you can even make yourself breakfast.

Let us take some of the stress out of your move. We have often been told that clients appreciate our non-judgmental, caring attitude and our ability to know just what is needed at what time.  Check out a video and hear what one of our clients has to say.
