Frequently asked questions
How much does it cost?
Initial consultation is free of charge.
Thereafter our fees are £75/hour for a team of two. Our normal working hours are 10am – 4pm (on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.) Any hours in addition to this will be charged at our standard hourly rate.
We require a 10% deposit of your total booking cost to secure your sessions.
How long will it take?
Good question! How long we work together depends entirely on how big the job is we are tackling, and how quickly you can make decisions on what to keep and what to part with. We will keep you focused on the task in hand and help you to prioritise – you won’t be distracted by that box of family photos or old diaries! Working together means we can achieve a lot more in a session that you would on your own, that’s for sure.
What do you need from us?
An open mind, a willingness to make a change in your life, and dedicated time to work together. Before the consultation, all you need to do is to take stock of the areas you are going to show us, and start to think about where you would like to start. We will then agree this together, of course. We always recommend starting with an area which you won’t find too difficult or emotional as a start off, then working up from there.
Do I need to buy anything?
We provide everything needed in terms of materials (bin bags, labels, labellers, markers etc.) If any more expensive items are required for moving house or home staging, these are charged back to you at cost. There is no need to buy any storage before we come. Sometimes people panic and think they need to buy lots of storage boxes, but they are often not needed when the decluttering starts in earnest, and if they are, we can source some further down the line.
Is your service confidential?
LIFE / EDIT is a completely private and confidential service. Some people are quite happy to tell friends and family about their decluttering projects, especially afterwards because they feel so uplifted and proud of their home. Others prefer to keep things private. There are no advertising logos on cars or uniforms. We will never discuss clients with a third party unless agreed and all photographs taken and used on our social media/website will only be used with your permission. For any testimonial given, after we work together, we will only ever use your first name.
A word from our clients
“I am sitting here enjoying the peace and calm that comes after a session with Zoë and Victoria... they are fantastic to work with and are really supportive in helping you let things go. I would rate them higher than a spa weekend in terms of making me feel relaxed. Don’t hesitate. You won’t regret it.”
“Zoë and Victoria are both a real pleasure to work with and made the whole decluttering process painless and straightforward. They also really went the extra mile to leave everything else tidy and organised, making it feel much more manageable and in control once they left.”
“Everyone should know about these two women... They are a smart and infectious duo who I felt so at ease with going through personal items. Full of fantastic ideas, their combined skillset is just brilliant. They work efficiently, and are great at cost saving often reusing items for storage and thinking out with the box. I wanted honesty, enthusiasm and a great final look and I would say they surpassed my (often high) expectations.”
“Today, two actual REAL-LIFE angels appeared at my door in the form of Zoe and Victoria from LIFE / EDIT. These ladies are honestly miracle workers! The whole hassle of sorting everything into recycling/charity/give away/sell/throw away was completely gone, and a job that would have taken me months was done in a day. I only wish I’d got them in sooner.”
