Please ask if you'd like to see my documentation.
I will ask you questions to think about whether you need to keep anything but the decision to keep or let go is entirely up to you
It's completely your choice
While I prefer to try and stop as much as possible from ending up in landfill where your items go is your decision.
Ideally, if the items can still be of some use to someone, I would suggest sending to either a charity of your choice or put the items up for sale.
I would be happy to help take items to charity on your behalf providing they fit within the boot of my car on the day of the session.
I charge an hourly rate for Consultations, Hands-on Help and Virtual Sessions
Consultations - £25.00 per hour.
Hands-on Help - £35.00 per hour
Virtual Sessions - £30.00 per hour
There is an additional £5.00 charge per hour if working out of hours
Hands-on Help requires a minimum of 3 hours to be booked and must be taken in one go - additional hours can be added
Mileage would be charged for locations outside of a 10 mile radius of SK2 6EU - 45p per mile.
All the time I am with you is chargeable, except for lunch breaks during longer sessions (which we would agree prior to working together)
That's very difficult to determin and very much reliant on yourself and the job at hand.
There are a whole number of factors that come into play such as the area we're working on, the kind of items we're dealing with and also your response to the whole process.
The only guarantee is that you'll get much more done with organisational support and another pair of hands than if you do it on you own.
Yes but there is a £5.00 increase in cost per hour
Yes but not necessarily for the duration. It all depends on what we're tackling.
Your involvement and need to be there will be discussed prior to the session.
I like to give a little bit of homework to get you thinking about what we'll be tackling but I'd never give anything that's unachieveabIe or is essential to the job.
If you'd prefer not to have homework that's also fine too.
I have a 48 hours notice cancellation term. If you have to cancel within that time prior to your session, full fees will apply.
If there is a likliehood you will need to either cancel or move the date please let me know as soon as possible in order to allow me to find an alternative date for you or make other arrangements.
I’m registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (Data Protection).
I keep your contact details on record and your address in my phone contacts so I can find you the first time. For my own good practice, my husband is able to view my calendar and find out where I am.
I will keep a record of our email correspondence if we have one.
If you're ok with it, I like to take photos of the space we're working on before and after to showcase the progress we've made and to celebrate what's been achieved.
I don't use photographs of your home or office publically without your permission.
I will send you an email prior to our initial session informing you of what to expect and anything you may need to prepare prior to my arrival.
