Would you like your new home professionally unpacked?

Moving house is considered one of the most stressful and time-consuming life events we ever have to encounter. Whether you are a busy professional working in the city or a pre-occupied parent unable to dedicate time to focus on the daunting task of unpacking a home filled with boxes, we are on hand to help with your every need.

At ABODE, we employ professional, mature women to deliver our service.They are highly experienced in packing, unpacking and organising homes and are exceptionally good at saving clients’ time and reducing the stress of moving.The majority of our ladies are ’empty nesters’ who have raised a family, moved house and know how to set up and organise a home. They receive extensive training in our unpacking processes, and are hard working, professional, efficient and discreet. Many of our employees have the practical know-how to deal with various challenges of moving, such as downsizing from a large family home into a smaller one, combining two houses, dealing with limited storage and intelligently organising a family’s belongings into a new space so you can rest assured that your home is in safe hands.

On the day your removal firm arrives at your new home, our unpacking and home organising experts immediately get to work unpacking your home and get it all organised for you in just one day. Whether you’d just like help with the kitchen and bedrooms, or the whole house unpacked for you, our friendly, helpful female staff will save you time and reduce the stress of setting up your new home. The kitchen and living areas will be installed, dressing rooms professionally styled, linens placed on beds, children's toys organised and fresh flowers displayed as a gift from us to you! Our aim is for you to be able to enjoy your new home from the second you walk through the door.

Pricing Structure

Our minimum service is a team of 2 staff for 4 hours which will usually cover the kitchen and breakables, and some cupboards or wardrobes. Our full day service is based on a team of 2 staff for a total of 8 hours and aims to have all belongings unpacked and placed within the home by the end of the day, however we will never leave a job unfinished. Dependent on the size of the property you are moving to and the number of boxes that require unpacking you may need more than 1 team of ladies in order to complete the job in one day ie; you can book as many or as few teams as you need.

Our home-organising experts are able to unpack your belongings as directed by you on site, however they are equally equipped to work independently if you are unable to be present on the day. Our aim is to make your home look and feel just as you want it so a good idea is to show us some photographs of your previous property so we can dress it in your preferred style.

Our Full Day Unpacking Rate is from £650 + VAT (extra supplements will be applied for weekends). Please note that when a full day is booked, our teams require 1 hour of breaks during the day by law.

Our Half Day Unpacking Rate is from £400 + VAT (extra supplements will be applied for weekends).

Moving later in life?

If a client has not moved for many years or if they are unwell, the thought of moving home can be too overwhelming to contemplate. Whatever the needs, we can assist. We can either manage the whole moving process, leaving the client to look forward to settling into their new home, or simply assist with unpacking on removal day to ensure they are comfortably set up.

Often senior clients have lived in their home for a very long time, raising their families. Each room will evoke special memories and possessions will be precious for a wide range of reasons. We ensure that we work at the client’s pace, helping them access the harder to reach areas – ensuring they feel in control and comfortable with the decisions that they are making.

As part of our service, we fully unpack all boxes and organise rooms to ensure safe access including hanging curtains and making up beds, connect the TV and computer where possible and can even arrange for a grocery shop to stock the fridge.

For a senior move to a 1 or 2 bed apartment, our unpacking rate starts from £250 +VAT per day ( based on 1 team member for 6 hours)
