The Cleanout Process:
Preparing the Property for Sale:
“I recently had the pleasure of working with the Clarity over Clutter Team to assist with the clean out and clear out of my Mother and Father Inlaws home. This was an extremely daunting project, my Inlaws had acquired over 60 years worth of possessions and personal items that needed to be dealt with in a respectful and timely manner…Susan Macaulay to the rescue! Susan and her Team approached the Project with military-like precision…working tirelessly in the +30 degree July weather to complete the clean out in one day! I can’t say enough about how respectful the Clarity over Clutter Team was of the Family’s possessions, they handled each item as if it were their own property. Susan was particularly impressive with her planning and organizational skills…she lead the project from beginning to end with precision and professionalism you seldom see in today’s marketplace! If you are considering a cleanout or cleanout project…look no further than Susan and her Team…they will not let you down!”

“Highly recommend Clarity Over Clutter. Susan and her crew were professional, friendly, went out of their way to ensure all our needs were met. We valued the fact their service sorts and packs as much as possible for donations to local charities. They also assisted us in organizing other services (garbage hauling, cleaning services, movers) to take the stress off us during these difficult times. We cannot say enough good things about Clarity Over Clutter!”

“Susan and her team are amazing! She truly went above and beyond in organizing an Estate clean out of my grandparents home in preparation for sale. This was a huge amount of work and I couldn’t even wrap my head around where to begin. I was so impressed with how professional and caring she was going through personal items in the home. She took the time to separate anything she felt would be important to our family that live out of province. I would highly recommend her and cannot thank you enough!”
“Thank you for looking after the clean out of my Aunt’s place. You helped lessened the burden of stress for my family at a difficult time. We appreciate your professionalism and care.”

“I had the difficult task of cleaning out my mother’s house after she had passed away. Not only had she accumulated 30 years’ worth of stuff, she also was a collector, and I felt like I had about a million and one things to go through. It was also my childhood home, and there were many memories attached to everything. I had an initial consultation with Susan but wasn’t ready to start the sorting process yet, which she was very respectful of. Once I was ready, she made sure to let me know that we would move at my pace and that I never had to make a decision if I wasn’t ready. Susan was so caring and understanding of my situation. I also worked with many of her team members and they were all fantastic. The sorting process didn’t happen overnight, but I felt really good about all the decisions I’d made. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for Susan. I would highly recommend her services, and have to many friends and family.”

“I just wanted to take the chance to thank you for helping my brother and me clear out my mother’s condo after her move to a senior’s apartment. It was a daunting task we were faced with, and you gave us some much needed direction. I really appreciate how you took control and lined up all aspects of the move. You have a great team of ladies working for you. They were careful and respectful to the things they were packing, whether the items were headed to auction or to a charity. It was very useful having you line up your contacts so that all the items were picked up and taken away in the few short days I was able to be in town. It was a stressful time and I really needed your calmness, organization and direction. I couldn’t believe all that was accomplished in two and a half days. It would have taken us weeks or months. Thanks again for all your help!”

On behalf of Grace, and myself, I would like to express my sincere thanks to you and your entire team for the exceptional work you performed in sorting and clear-ing Grace’s home, and preparing it for sale.
Faced with such a large project, I found myself completely overwhelmed and not sure where, or how to start. Your expertise, advice, knowledge of what needed to be done, on what time line, and your roster of reliable contacts to handle each outside task was invaluable.
Seemingly undaunted by even the largest challenges presented in some of the areas, you handled each one, quickly, efficiently, and with a considerate and compassionate attitude that was most appreciated.
On a personal note, I was most grateful for the way you kept your eye on me as well, ensuring that I was coping both physically and emotionally with unfolding events.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in need of help of this kind in the future, and in fact, have already done so.
“When my parents died within 8 months of each other, I was left to empty their home of 55 years. My mother being a hoarder made the task truly daunting.
I met with Susan and we discussed how this was to be handled. It was important to me that things not be thrown away with no thought of the environment or waste.
Her experience and methods guided me through the process and kept things on track.
Her contacts proved invaluable and her team has an experienced eye to pick out the treasures.
During the process I felt in control of what was taking place, and supported during this time of bereavement.
Susan’s combination of empathy and respect made this process possible and completed in a month and a half.
I have no hesitation in recommending her company to anyone going through a simi-lar process or just moving.”

“We want to express a sincere Thank You to Clarify Over Clutter for services provided in the summer/fall of 2017. This was a very difficult summer for our family as our sister, who had lived in Winnipeg for 50 years, died just three months after receiving a terminal diagnosis. We, her four sisters from Newfoundland, traveled to Winnipeg throughout the summer to provide care for our sister and to take on the responsibility of her estate. Our sister’s neighbor recommended your services and from our first meeting with Laura in July, Clarity Over Clutter became a lifeline for us at this very difficult time. From the very beginning Laura was very accommodating, demonstrating much respect and empathy for the difficult circumstances with which we were coping. Following our sister’s death she and her assistant, Margo, played an instrumental role in helping us pack our sister’s possessions and making arrangements for sales and donations. It was a very emotional time for the family and Laura and Margo were not only efficient in their work but they did it with compassion. We are thankful for the professional and thorough manner in which they completed the tasks assigned. We will be forever appreciative of their respect for our sister’s home and possessions and the manner in which they responded to us, a grieving family. ‘People may not remember what you did but they will remember how you made them feel’. Clarity Over Clutter – Laura and Margo – we will always remember.’

In 2017 I hired Susan and her crew to clean, declutter and stage a former family home that had recently housed a person who had lived there for 84 years. She thoroughly cleaned all areas of the house and arranged for furniture donation pick up and for items to be taken to the dump. She also did a great job staging this old house for sale with the remaining furniture. The house sold in less than a week. Her personal experienced efforts, along with her team, made the difference in making this 100 year old dated house attractive for sale.
She had great recommendations for the preparations for sale and discouraged my suggestions for work to be done to enhance a sale. She could have oversold me on needless work and related costs. Her sensitivity, honesty and knowledge of what needs to be done to prepare a house for sale was beyond my expectations.
Her pricing was made clear in advance and her estimate of the time needed was accurate. I was amazed how much was done in one 8 hour day to ready the house. There were no surprises. My only suggestion would be for her to encourage the charity that she uses for donated furniture, to send a thank you letter to the donor(s). The 94 year old lady who moved out would have appreciated
a kind acknowledgement. I would have no reservation in recommending her company. I will definitely use her when the time comes for a personal move.
“I have to take a moment and thank you again for helping me recently during a difficult and challenging situation. I found your organization by searching online. I reached out to 3 other companies, 2 never responded and the 3rd company contacted me days after I sent an email. Clarity Over Clutter responded to my email within hours and also followed up with a phone message. Amazing customer service. All the details were clearly explained to me and I quickly felt very confident that everything was going to be okay. And I was right. The day of the move went quickly and smoothly. The staff was very professional and compassionate. I cannot thank you enough for being there for me and please be assured, I will be singing your praises to whomever will listen!!”
