Plan in advance! Remember that you need time for the actual moving process, time for cleaning, and you may have other professionals, such as painters or carpet cleaners, to coordinate with. Don’t put it off! We recommend having painters/handy persons in FIRST. Cleaning is next, and carpets should be last. Please provide a SPECIFIC list of tasks you need completed, in order of priority. We will not clean your refrigerator or cabinet interiors if they are full. You probably don’t want to pay our hourly rate for pantry item removal anyway.
TIME NEEDED: 3hrs for a kitchen move-out and 2hrs per full bathroom is average. Half bathrooms, bedrooms, and common areas vary between 30 minutes to 1hr each depending on their condition. If you’re a single person/couple with no kids or pets, your place is newer and very well-kept, you can safely bring those estimates down. If this is a college rental with many people coming and going, you should double them. Use your judgment. If we find the amount of time you reserved wasn’t sufficient, you can always book more. You’ll be glad you planned ahead!
For move-outs or any larger job, we recommend booking time with multiple staff or over 2-3 days.
