We are your personal team of move-in specialists, committed to helping you conquer an important transition: moving to a new home.
What We Do
When your boxes come off the moving truck, the move isn’t over. We are here to take the stress out of unpacking the piles of boxes so that you can quickly and easily start your new chapter in a new home. We will unpack boxes, organize closets, arrange your kitchen, hang pictures, clear away unwanted items for donation or disposal, and help you create a home in no time. Unpacking can take you months to do, but will only take us days to complete.
Our mission and brand promise is to take the stress out of moving so that you can focus on all the new possibilities and opportunities that a new home brings.
With a fresh method and approach to moving, In Place is empowering clients to free up time and space to focus on the good stuff, like an exciting new beginning in a new home.
Before your move, we work with you to design a floor plan that aligns with your furniture and the space available in your new home. In addition, we will deliver furniture placement instructions to your movers to ensure a seamless move in day.
Our team will meticulously unpack your belongings in your new home. We ensure that all boxes are unpacked and items are placed where they belong.
From kitchens to closets to kids rooms, we organize it all. If you have preferences, we will work with you to make sure everything is organized in a way that works best for you.
Donation and Disposal
Our motto is “Don’t move what you don’t use!”….but if you do, we’ll help you get it out! Before or after your move, we will coordinate the disposal of your unwanted items, whether it’s to donation or to a dump site.
We’ll hang your pictures, make the beds, and attend to every detail to make sure you feel at home when you walk in your new front door.
Mover Referrals and Custom Services
If you have a move-related need that is not listed here, we’re happy to help. We partner and work directly with hand-selected moving companies and other services, and are happy to connect you with any service that you require.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
+ Where do you operate?
In Place serves most of the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Francisco, the East Bay, and the North Bay. If you live in the Bay Area but outside of these locations, please contact us and we'll see what we can do!
+ What happens after I contact you?
- One of the owners, Heidi or Dee, will connect with you on the phone for an intro call to discuss your needs. We will listen to your particular situation, get some details from you (i.e., size of home, location, timing, etc.) and provide some initial thoughts and recommendations.
- The next step is a home consultation, which we will do either via video call or in person in your home (we will discuss the best option for you on our intro call). After the home consultation, we will send a pricing estimate and timeline proposal based on the information gathered.
- If you move forward with our services, we will then schedule your move-in day(s) with members from our team of home experts. We will also continue to be there with you every step of the way, until everything in your home is In Place.
+ How much does your service cost?
No two moves are the same, which means that our costs are dependent on several factors including size of the home, services needed, etc. Please contact us to discuss your needs, we’ll be happy to evaluate your situation and provide pricing.
+ Is In Place the same as a moving company?
We are not direct providers of moving trucks and loading/unloading services, but we do partner with a fully vetted and hand-selected group of residential moving companies. We're happy to put you in touch with them and any other services you may require. If you choose to work with one of our moving partners, we will work directly with them to ensure a seamless experience for the entirety of your moving experience. Additionally, if you have a moving company you would like to use that is not one of our partners, we are happy to work with them as well.
+ Are you full service only or can I use parts of your services?
We are primarily full-service move-in specialists, providing a customized plan and the necessary services to get you settled into your new home. However, we do work with our clients on their particular needs and will certainly accommodate partial services. For example, if you have more unique circumstances not related to moving, such as remodeling, renovating, etc., we can provide ad hoc services on a case by case basis. Give us a call to discuss your needs, and if for any reason we cannot accommodate, we will provide you with a recommendation for another path!
+ Do I need to be home when your team is there?
Generally speaking, no, you do not need to be home when we provide our services. Believe it or not, we’ve had clients go on vacation while we unpacked and organized their home! If you do not wish to be home for some or all of the move in, we will work with you in advance to make sure our team knows every detail about your move plan. If you are home, we will provide you a direct point of contact for any questions, directions, etc. you may have.
+ Do you have insurance?
Yes, In Place is fully insured to cover any unforeseen accidents.
+ Do you recycle materials?
Yes, absolutely. We are a green business that believes in always recycling cardboard boxes, paper, etc. We also encourage our clients to consider donating or consigning items that they no longer need.
