Click through from each APDO business profile to the website and social media links of individual organisers. Check out their background, areas of expertise and general approach. Finding the right organiser for you is a personal choice so it's probably useful to speak or meet up before you start working together.

Terms and conditions

The terms and conditions of individual organisers explain what they can and can't do to help you. For example, moving items, cleaning, and disposal of your unwanted belongings. It's also worth clarifying payment terms and cancellation policy. Feel free to ask any questions or raise any concerns.

Pricing

There is no standard rate for professional organising so fees will vary according to several factors, including experience, specific expertise. Some organisers charge on an hourly basis; others offer session rates or project fees. Do check if fees include travel time/expenses or follow-up advice.

Professional services

APDO members are required to register with HMRC, hold full insurance and also to register for data protection. Book an APDO member and you can expect a professional, courteous and confidential service that complies with our Code of Ethics.

Length of APDO Membership
