"Candi Ruppert with SAGE Organizing Co. is absolutely AMAZING!! She takes what starts as a completely overwhelming experience and makes it manageable, all while providing calm and professional support and guidance. One time I was in need of help moving a client’s household goods of an estate from Charlotte to New York – that very same week! The solution? Candi to the rescue! Once Candi was introduced in, she was able to help the family with donations and their estate sale, and was able to orchestrate and successfully oversee the entire process. I am so thankful I can rely on Candi and her services!"

What does a Move Manager do?
A move manager helps you organize your move from beginning to end. From sorting and organizing, to coordinating and vetting vendors (such as movers/shippers), to packing and unpacking, a move manager can do it all. You can choose whichever services you need, à la carte style.
How does it all work? What is the process?
The first step is setting up a free 15 minute Discovery call. We'll talk through your project, timeline, and more. When we decide that we are a good fit for each other, we then set up an in-home consultation. We will walk through your project together, assess your needs, and talk about your priorities. After the consultation, you can expect to receive your written move management proposal and estimate within 2 business days. When you accept the estimate, we require a 50% deposit. You can read more about our pricing and payment terms by clicking here.
What are the benefits of hiring a professional organizer as your move manager?
Hiring a professional organizer as your move manager will help you feel less overwhelmed and less stressed. We can step in at any point during the relocation to help you with whatever tasks, logistics, or planning that you may need.
How much does a move manager cost?
It all depends what services you need, the size of your home, the amount of inventory in your home, and several other factors. Larger homes, homes with a heavy amount of inventory, or projects that need multiple services will cost more than a small home that has already been downsized. We take great care and pay attention to detail during the in-home consultation so that we can provide you with an accurate cost estimate.
What are some examples of things a move manager might do?
Your move manager can do a number of things. We can coordinate with your realtor, the staging company, any service professionals in the house (such as painters, cleaners, etc.) We can also help you find and vet a moving company, storage units if you need it, or labor to lift the heavy stuff. We have connections with many local charities around Charlotte for your donations. If you need a dumpster or a junk hauling service, we have several trusted and vetted partners who have the highest reviews. If you want to monetize some of your stuff, we can connect you with preferred national auction houses, consignment shops, and more.
Do you pack boxes for moves?
Yes! We love packing up a house for a move. Unlike the people who pack for a moving company, we use logic, common sense, and our organizational skills to help you make decisions about what to move and what to not move. On average, it costs about $1 per pound to move things; you can trust that we'll make sure you're not paying to move things you don't want or don't need.
Do you unpack boxes after a move?
We unpack boxes after you have moved into your new home. We unpack kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms on day one. After all, you will need to sleep, eat and freshen up, even after a long day of moving. On the following days, we are available to unpack the rest of the house. Our unpacking service is flexible so that you can hire us to unpack whichever rooms you prefer.
Do you hire movers?
We can handle anything and everything you can think of when it comes to moving or shipping companies. We frequently work with trusted and vetted local moving companies who have the best reviews, and we can provide you with at least two recommendations. We can conduct the estimate walkthrough with the moving company estimator and then advise you on the estimate and contract. You go under contract directly with the moving company; we do not add on any referral fees or percentages. Once you're under contract, we can manage the entire process of working with the moving company and being sure they have all the supplies they need to get the job done.
Do you find storage units?
We can help you find a storage unit if you need it. Often, if a family is relocating to a smaller home for a short time, they may need to put some items in storage. If you need us to find a storage unit for you, we are happy to oblige. We'll provide you with storage facilities that we know, like, and trust for you to choose from.
Do you bring boxes and all the supplies that are needed?
When we send you your Move Management Estimate and Proposal, we include the estimated cost for moving boxes and supplies such as packing paper and packing tape. If you would like to order the supplies yourself, we will send you a list. Otherwise, we can place the order for you and have it shipped straight to your home. Cost of moving supplies such as boxes etc. are not included in our service fee. We always find the most affordable pricing for moving boxes and supplies so you can be sure you're getting the best rate.
