Downsizing

Downsizing Your Home

Now is finally the time to turn to your next chapter and downsize your home.

Your home reflects a lifetime of memories. To other people, your belongings just look like a lot of stuff; but to you, they represent years worth of living and the people who mean most to you.

At NEATSPACES, we provide patient and compassionate senior downsizing services in Toronto and Burlington to help make the transition seamless. From decluttering to packing to move management, we do it all to help you downsize your home with minimal stress.

Are You Ready to Downsize Your Family Home?

It’s time to finally spend your time doing what you enjoy without feeling bogged down by the accumulation of your stuff that’s piled up over the years.

Downsizing comes with ease and flow — and a smaller footprint. That said, downsizing is not always easy.

The piles can be overwhelming, and it’s hard to know where even to start. How do you decide what to keep, donate, or get rid of? What should you pass on to your kids?

The compassionate team at NEATSPACES offers senior downsizing services in Toronto and Burlington to help make the process easier. We understand that your home reflects a life well lived, and we will help you downsize and prepare for the changes ahead. We’re here to help with a personalized plan of action and trustworthy hands-on support.

After we simplify your sorting, organization, and disposal to make moving easier, we help set up your new home in a way that continues to reflect your personal journey, so it feels like home.

Complimentary Consultation

As part of our downsizing services, we provide a complimentary in-home consultation. After we walk through your home and establish your goals and objectives, we’ll customize a downsizing plan that’s right for you. We’ll answer all of your questions about our process, best practices, and how to make this time of transition as easy as possible.

We understand that your home is full of memories, cherished furniture, art, table top decor, and other household goods that you have collected over the years.

NEATSPACES will help you organize what you want to keep and declutter your space. We will provide you with the best possible options for disposing of things that you or your family don’t have room for. We provide senior downsizing services in Toronto and Burlington with a high level of organization, support, and professionalism.

We always respect your wishes and direction. Our team always sorts through a home’s contents carefully and thoroughly to ensure everything is dealt with in a manner that puts your mind at ease.

Call us today to book your consultation to start your downsizing project.

The Downsize

When you utilize our professional downsizing services, we work with your family to optimize the furniture layout and space in your new home. We’ll provide guidance on what to move with you, and will even help you move it if needed.

NEATSPACES’ team of professional organizers in Toronto will help you sort through and edit your belongings, and provide thoughtful options for items you cannot take with you.

For example, you can dispose of furnishings, art, table top decor, flatware, stemware and china through a combination of auction, sale, consignment or donation.

If your downsizing efforts include the sale of your home, we’ll work with your real estate agent to ensure your home looks its best before listing it.

Managing the Move

In addition to providing downsizing services in Toronto, we also offer end-to-end move management to help make this transition seamless. We coordinate and oversee movers, elevator reservations, packing supplies, packing, unpacking and setting up your new home. If closet systems are required to optimize storage, we will arrange that in advance so everything is put in its place on moving day.

Detailed planning in advance makes moving day as easy as it can be. We provide concierge level move management services from start to finish.

When you enlist the help of NEATSPACES’ downsizing services in Toronto or Burlington, you can have peace of mind knowing that your new home will be set up and ready for you to relax and settle into!

See What Our Customers Say

"I worked with Neat Spaces to downsize my parents from their home of over 30 years, and to move them into a retirement home. Edie was wonderful. She arranged everything; movers, organizers, cleaners. Everyone was a pleasure to work with. They were sensitive to a tough situation and I trusted them with my family belongings. We were on a tight deadline and managed to get everything done and prepare the house for sale. I definitely recommend Neat Spaces!"

Moving and House Downsize
Neatspaces Customer

"This work involved packing and moving an elderly person from their condo to assisted living. The team was excellent and easy to work with. They helped us go through things and sort out junk, donations and move to new residence. Edie was great to organize things and Jane was on-site. The packing was well done by Elanda and both the junk removal and movers were excellent and professional. The clean up team left the place spotless and it sold in four days ! A sincere thank you to all."

"I am writing about the excellent experience we had with Neat Spaces! We had to downsize our home and we retained Neat Spaces. Edie and her professional organizing team were exceptional. The staff was very professional, courteous and extremely efficient. They helped us with our downsize and move from beginning to end. They made it a pleasurable experience! I would recommend using the services of Neat Spaces. Thank you so much Neat Spaces."

Downsize and Move
Jean M., Toronto

"My elderly mother had decided that she needed to sell her townhouse after living there for 3 decades. We really needed significant help to physically prepare her home and organize the contents. This was a really big job that was way beyond the capability of my extended family (who lived both in Ontario and BC). Neat Spaces did a great job of coordinating cleaning services, recommending a great handyman for larger house repairs, sorting materials for donation, junk removal, packing and the final move of any valued contents. They also went the extra mile and dealt with special requests made by extended family members. Without Neat Spaces, we would have misplaced or junked valuable family memorabilia/furniture. I think that the actual time saved in getting the house well-organized is really worth the investment. Ultimately, these preparations also greatly helped with the quick finale sale of the townhouse too. Kudos to Edie and the team."

Helping Prepare an Older Townhouse for Sale

This was the second time we have used Neat Spaces to help with a move. They (Jane) did more than help. We couldn't have anticipated a smoother, more organized move, and were settled in immediately. Thanks to Neat Spaces and especially Jane we didn't have a box or anything extraneous sitting around for days. Well worth any cost involved.
