It Starts
With Empathy

We understand the emotional struggle you face with downsizing and letting go of belongings. Trust our dedication and compassion for supporting your task or transition. You deserve kindness and respect without judgment of your situation.

Our Client Testimonials

“We are so, so thankful for Sonja & her crew at The Pack Up Artist for coming in and helping us. There was no judgment (even as I kept my concert ticket stubs) only laughs at some of the memories we/they found buried in boxes.
Not going to lie, the first night was tough as I thought about all of the stuff we had already junked or donated. In the end, it was soooooo worth it! One could roller skate in the basement now! Now to figure out what to do with all that space!”

“Jen, Mary & Mary were awesome!  They had great attitudes and were super quick and efficient.

We’ll definitely reach out again when we need your services and will continue to recommend The Pack Up Artist to everyone I know.”

“Sonja was great to work with she was very knowledgeable professional and has a very positive attitude about the work that she does I would definitely recommend her for any of the services that The Pack Up Artist provides.”

“Sonja is absolutely amazing! She’s fast, detail oriented and efficient. I love that her company takes the time to thoughtfully donate or recycle instead of throwing in the landfill. I would definitely recommend The Pack Up Artist company to friends and family looking for a job well done.”
