We coordinate every detail of the move and organise your new house into a familiar space where you feel at home.
There are two aspects to moving – moving OUT and moving IN. We coordinate all the details of both these components, along with everything in between:
- Liaise with moving company, from getting quotes to delivering house contents at the new house.
- Logistics oversight.
- Coordinate a wide range of additional and specialised services to ensure that your move is customised to your specific requirements (see below).
EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE
Feels Like Home was established as a company in response to the need for reducing the stress of moving to a new house. A large part of the stress is due to packing and finding a place for everything. FLH can assist you with reducing everything to what you really want to keep and move.
We work from the premise that settling into your new home as soon as possible takes a lot of the stress out of moving. Successful settling in, however, starts with sorting out, which in turn leads to methodical packing, unpacking and settling in quickly and easily.
Our SPUS (Sort | Pack | Unpack | Settle In) system is the backbone of our organising service and enables us to offer you a smooth transition to your new home.
LET’S GET PACKING
Sort and Pack
Sorting and packing are the most time-consuming stages of moving because there is so much that needs to be done before packing the first box. If you have done your own packing before, you know it usually takes weeks to get it all done. With Feels Like Home’s assistance this can be a much quicker and less stressful process.
It is essential to sort out cupboards before moving so that boxes can be packed in categories, ensuring that everything is unpacked in the right place from the start.
Sorting out cupboards implies that items that need to be together must be in one place before packing – especially in the kitchen.
Our busy lives do not always allow us the time to get rid of unwanted and unnecessary items. Most of us only realise how much “stuff” we have accumulated when we need to start packing to move to a new house.
Relocating becomes a costly exercise when you have tons of stuff that need to be transported. Decluttering is part of sorting and needs attention before your move.
A decluttered house makes settling in a breeze and helps transform your new house into a familiar and serene home.
Downsizing also forms part of sorting. Transporting large amounts of furniture means unnecessary labour and adds to moving cost. If you have excess furniture that won’t fit into your new house, it’s a good idea to hand out to family and friends, donate, or sell it.
Feels Like Home’s standard service includes basic sorting out of cupboards. However, we also offer excessive sorting, decluttering, and downsizing services and can assist in selling items.
Feels Like Home can arrange packing and unpacking services with the moving company of your choice, or you can make use of our in-house packing service.
Make it feel like home
Unpack and Settle In
You don’t want to live amongst boxes for weeks (if not months). If boxes are packed according to FLH’s organised system, unpacking is quick and painless.
We assist in unpacking and organising your cupboards.
Within a day your house can be completely unpacked and organised and you will know exactly where to find your belongings. All items are placed exactly where you want them and packed in the correct cupboards, as determined during the pre-visit of the new house.
We use a pre-determined floorplan.
All furniture and bigger décor items, plants and lamps are placed where you want it to be.
On moving-day, life can carry on as usual while we transform your new home into a familiar space. Everything will be organised, and you will even be welcomed by a home-cooked meal when you return.
Our services include:
- Organising kitchen.
- Making up bedrooms.
- Making up bathrooms and hanging clean towels.
- Covering windows or hanging curtains of selected rooms.
- Cleaning of house after moving in.
- Removing of all boxes and packing materials.
