Do you charge for consultations?
Our consultations are free of charge. Meeting in person not only allows us to get a better idea of your space, it is also very important for us to meet our potential clients face to face to ensure you feel comfortable having us in your home.
Do you work in surrounding areas (ie: Okotoks, Airdrie, etc)?
We service the following areas in and around Calgary: Okotoks, Airdrie, Chestermere, Langdon, Bragg Creek. There may or may not be a travel fee applied. It depends on your location.
Do you do Junk Hauling?
Absolutely! If you have large amounts of junk that need to be hauled away, we will happily get rid of it for you. We will also take any items in good condition to the charity of your choosing.
What areas of the home do you organize?
We will literally organize any room in your home. To learn more about what do, visit our Services page.
Do you organize storage units?
Yes, we will meet you on site to organize your storage unit as well as help to transfer any goods to your home or to donation.
Do you work weekends?
Yes! We know that some of our clients work full time during the week so we’re able to accommodate those that are home on the weekends.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, e-transfer, cheque or credit card.
Do you work alone or with others?
Based on your assessment, we’ll decide how many organizers it will take to get the job done and what scenario makes the most sense for you. The benefit of having more than one home organizer at a time is we get more done in a shorter time frame.
Do you have confidentiality agreements?
Yes. We will happily provide you with one upon request.
Do I have to be there when you’re working?
No. We often work for clients when they’re at work or away. Once we are able to assess your space, we’ll pick the scenario that makes sense for you.
How long will it take to get our home organized?
It all depends on the size of the space, the amount of stuff you have and your expectations for completion. However, we can provide ballpark time frames for certain rooms.
Do you provide organizing items such as bins or shelving?
Absolutely. During the initial assessment we will review all of your current organizing solutions and determine what we can reuse and recycle from your current collection and/or if there is anything else that we’ll require to get you full organized. Whenever we can use the items that you already have, we try to do that – we love to save you money and save it from the landfills!
How soon can I get started?
Contact us to find out more about our availability.
Do you provide moving services, such as packing and unpacking?
While we don’t provide packing services, we do provide help with pre-move decluttering to ensure the only things you’re taking with you are the things you really need and/or want. And, once you’re moved, we’ll meet you the day the truck arrives to start helping you unpack and putting things away. You can read more about it under Moving or Downsizing
How long have you been in business?
J’Organizing has been working in Calgary since 2010.
I’m interested in becoming an organizer – are you hiring?
We are always looking for bright, organized and like-minded people to join our team. You can email us your resume.
What happens to items we no longer want?
We take pride in providing our clients with access to environmentally sound removal of items. We will help you determine what items would be useful to donate, as well as what can be consigned and recycled.
How much do you charge?
We charge $75/hr for 1 Organizer and, if you’re doing a larger project and require additional hands-on help, we provide two Home Organizers at a reduced rate of $140/hr. Our rates are based on our extensive experience – over 7 years between us – and our ability to work quickly and efficiently. Not a minute is wasted as we know your time and money are incredibly valuable.
We have pets – Are you allergic to cats or dogs?
Nope! We have pets ourselves and are happy to work in homes with pets.
