Testimonials

“Artifact Organizing is a wonderful and highly professional service for anyone who is downsizing, organizing or moving homes and working with Colleen Hopkins is a great pleasure, from start to finish. She took care to consult with us before making critical decisions, always kept us up to date as the work progressed and offered creative solutions to challenging issues. Rather than moving unwanted furniture to landfill, Colleen did her best to find suitable organizations in Guelph willing to accept donations. In all aspects of her work, Colleen is responsible, meticulous, respectful and accommodating. She was available at short notice when needed and worked hard to meet deadlines. I couldn’t have managed without Colleen. Thank you Colleen.”

“Colleen Hopkins helped me with all of the reorganization and clean up of my house resulting from the move to The Village by the Arboretum. Her experience and knowledge of what to do with surplus and unwanted goods was absolutely invaluable. She was supportive and energetic and always cheerful. She made a difficult and somewhat emotional job so much easier.”

“First of all, Colleen is very gentle and calm about nudging me in the right direction; in helping me to decide what I need to keep and need to let go of. I appreciate where she takes the possessions I no longer need, donating them to support local community groups. I couldn’t have down sized the way I have without her help. You’re great!”

“We recently hired Colleen to help us downsize and move from our apartment in Guelph to a retirement home in Ottawa. The move involved reducing our furniture, clothes, and other personal items to fit into a unit 2/3 the size of our Guelph unit, packing the contents we were taking to Ottawa, reallocating the remaining items to charity, and hiring and supervising workers to undertake the move, planning the layout of our new home, and unpacking and arranging all our possessions in our new abode including hanging our art work and laying oriental rugs. The work required Colleen and her partner for this job, Cathy travelling to Ottawa and working unsupervised in our new accommodations.

All this work was done with military precision following a scale plan drawn up by Colleen. As a result we were able to move into our unit when we arrived in Ottawa and it immediately felt like our new home. And, for the first time we escaped having to do any packing or unpacking ourselves. Based upon our experience we would recommend Colleen.”

“We were pleased with the professional help provided by Artifact Organizing during our recent move. Colleen Hopkins and her crew assisted with he disposal of extra items, arranged for a mover and coordinated the move-in date at our new location. Prior to the move, most items ere boxed and labelled with the exception of personal articles and clothes, which ere packed early in the morning on move day.

They were also on hand at 1pm when the mover arrived at our new location to ensure that furniture, items, etc. were placed at their designated locations. By 5pm that day, all boxes had been emptied, the contents placed in their proper locations and all packaging removed - impressive!

Involving Artifact Organizing eliminated a lot of stress from our move which was much appreciated.”
