Our Downsizing & Move Management Services
Downsizing your home after building a lifetime of memories there can be extremely difficult. Attempting to balance decluttering, move preparations, packing, and arrangements with your own busy schedule adds unneeded anxiety and tension to your life. It takes time and impeccable attention to detail to stay on top of it all. Potomac Concierge’s accomplished team of professional organizers and move managers in McLean is here to handle the entire downsizing process from start to finish.
Our experienced move managers will manage the countless details and organize all arrangements—from decluttering to finding a reliable, professional moving company, to sorting through and packing your possessions, to helping unpack and organize your new home. Additionally, we will keep you consistently updated throughout the entire downsizing process so there are no surprises.
Downsizing Your Home: Preparation
Preparation can be one of the most stressful parts of downsizing your home or your life. We leave no rock unturned, no detail left unchecked. In McLean and the surrounding areas, we can provide:
- Planning, coordinating, and organizing the entire downsizing and moving process, including a moving timeline and vendor management
- Arranging, sorting, and labeling possessions by category (keep, donate, discard, sell, or pass along to family and friends)

- Preparing your new home for move-in (cleaning, utility, and cable set-up) and secure design services (painting, window treatments, carpeting, alarm system, etc.)
- Discontinuing services at your old home (lawn services, mail, newspaper delivery, etc.) and transferring services to your new home, when appropriate
- Arranging trash disposal
