De-cluttering and downsizing service fees are $60/hour with a 3 hour minimum. Each session includes removal of one carload of donations. Sessions are scheduled Monday-Friday either 9AM-12PM or 12:30/1:00 to 3:30/4:00. Some flexibility in those times is possible.
Weekend sessions are available at a rate of $75/hour with a 3 hour minimum.
I generally work within a 10 mile radius of downtown Ann Arbor. Other locations may be possible with a travel fee.
Items sold on behalf of a client are subject to a 30% commission before any fees associated with selling the item (such as advertising, ebay fees, and shipping).
Listing items for sale that clients will manage can be done within the bounds of a work session. For example: I will take pictures and list the item on Facebook Marketplace but any inquiries will be directed to you to manage the actual process of interacting with the buyer.
I will also help you with responsible recycling and disposal of non-donatable and non-sellable items. This can include: toxics disposal, listing items to give away through Facebook and other avenues, and hiring dumpster services when needed.
If you would like me to take away items that are not donatable at a traditional thrift store, I can do so with a fee of $10 per stop. Examples would be taking computers to Best Buy for recycling, CPAP equipment to the CPAP bank, toxics to the Washtenaw County Toxic facility, or small amounts of materials to be shredded to a shredding facility. I can also do this without an additional charge by ending a session 20 minutes early for each stop.
I am a solo-practitioner with a limited amount of appointments available each week. Last minute cancellations result in a loss of income. If I cannot fill your slot, payment is requested for cancellations with less than 24 hours’ notice. Of course, things come up and exceptions can be made.
