You made it easier for me
Thanks with all my heart for the very unique help you provided me. You made easier for me, in my seventies, the move from my old house to my new condominium and assisted me also with the planning and renovation of the new place. All this with expertise and efficiency at all times.
‘Wowed’ by your services
Dear Heather & Diana., My husband and I have been ‘wowed’ by your services and broadcast your good works to all we know. Thank you HUGELY for your kindness and efficiency.
I knew I was in excellent hands
From the moment I met Diana I knew I was in excellent hands. She provided me not only with physical support and a unique set of organizational skills, but also much needed empathy and positivity — “Yes we can get through this!” — and we did! I honestly could not have completed this project without her expertise. Thank you Diana!
I wanted to say what a great job Heather and her team did to get me moved this weekend. The whole team worked so diligently and efficiently that by Saturday afternoon I felt as though I’d been here for ages. With all boxes unpacked and organized and with art on the walls I had eight people for dinner on Sunday and everyone agreed that the place looks great. The move was a little more difficult for me than I thought it would be so it was wonderful to be able to sit back on Friday afternoon while Heather’s team got everything unpacked. This is the only way to move and I’ve been telling everyone!
Heather and Diana, the two of you are beyond wonderful. My mom and I couldn’t have made this transition without you. There are no phrases or adequate words in the English language to express our appreciation!! From both of us to both of you – thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Really made our lives easier
Dear Diana and Heather, Thank you so much for all your hard work to make our move a success! Your help taking the lead on the move really made our lives easier and minimized interruptions on our daily routine. The design/layout suggestions maximized our space and our daughter LOVES playing, sleeping and hanging out in her new, big girl room. I would happily recommend your services to all my family and friends. Thank you!
Great care, respect and professionalism
In the span of a year I went through two renovations, the sale of a home, and moving into a new home with my partner, his kids and a cat. Heather and Diana were with us every step of the way, with an extraordinary ability to orchestrate schedules, coordinate contractors and movers, and declutter and organize our space to make room for everyone. They showed such great care, respect and professionalism and I will always be grateful for their help “moving on” successfully. As a bonus, I learned some things form these two organizing goddesses about how to create more space and less clutter in my life!
Diana Vela and Heather Shute were wonderful in helping me organize my house’s contents and assisting me in moving from the house that I had lived in for over 51 years.
Amazing service from the initial meeting to the perfect unpacking of the kitchen. Wouldn’t hesitate to use Moving On again, in fact, next time we move I want them to manage everything! Their recommendations for movers and other services were as good as they were.
Worked well with all of us
We are a family of five: my son and I are happy to purge, living alongside two confirmed pack rats, and a young “pack rat in training”. Before moving back into our new house, it was recommended to me that we call Moving on Organizing. Diana and Heather worked with all of us to purge before the move (yes, even the pack rats purged) and made the entire experience of moving stress-free. I’ve since had them back to help me purge again three years later, and I have hired them to move my parents after 44 years of living in one house. I just can’t say enough about the quality of their service and the lengths they will go to get you settled and set up.
