Design Consultation (maximum 2 hours) - $150.00
Want a new look and feel in your space but not sure where to begin? A consultation with a certified designer is an exciting starting place. The first meeting will take place in your home, covering the design process including timeline, budget, and level of service. The designer will ask questions to determine style and color preferences for furnishings and accessories and evaluate changes to the floor plan.
Clients begin the process by contacting our Get Organized! office and speaking with our Client Manager. We will discuss our policies and hourly design fees, and if the client is ready to move forward, the Client Manager will set up the 2-hour In-Home Consultation with the Designer.
After the Design Consultation
After the consultation, the designer will draft a Design Scope for review. Some of our clients choose to manage small details themselves and bring the designer in for the more complicated aspects of the job, while others want our designers to manage the entire project from start to finish. We will customize our Design Services to the client’s needs. The Design Scope will be sent by the designer to the client via email within seven to ten (7-10) business day of the consultation.
If the client is happy with the designer and the Design Scope, a Client Agreement will be emailed for the client to read and sign. When we have received the signed Agreement and applicable deposit, the designer will become the main contact for scheduling and design questions. Clients may call our Get Organized! main number at any time.
Your designer will provide additional information outside the Design Scope such as resources for de-cluttering, packing, cleaning services, shopping, contractors, and more as needed throughout the project. The designer can manage the contractors and vendors or give the contact information to the client.
Note: Research and communication with outside resources will be billed to the client at the hourly Design Rate. The client will pay labor fees for vendors and shopping purchases through the designer or directly to the vendors.
Once the design process begins, communication is the most important tool for a successful project. Response to emails, texts, and phone calls from the designer are necessary for timely progress. If the client chooses to do the shopping, products should be on hand for scheduled workdays. The client may request the designer do the shopping or the client may wish to shop with the designer. It is our desire to give our clients the level of service that suits their needs.
Many of the agreed upon services of the designer will take place off-site. Product and vendor research, furniture and décor selection, space planning, shopping, and communications with outside vendors are part of our Design Services.
Get Organized! offers many other services to complement our Design Services including de-cluttering, downsizing, paper management, staging, packing/unpacking, IT and photo organizing and holiday decorating.
We do not estimate total design jobs over the phone. Our main office will be happy to go over our design hourly rates and required deposits. Based on the initial consultation, the designer will discuss overall budget and cost estimate.
Get Organized! Design Services do not include additional expenses such as furnishings, furniture, shopping time and mileage, etc. Final billing may vary from initial estimate or quote based on additional expenses approved by the client.
To cancel your appointment with Get Organized! without incurring a charge, call 972.841.0738 (24 hours/7 days a week) at least 48 hours before your appointment and leave a detailed message. We will call back to reschedule the appointment at a mutually agreed upon day and time. We understand sometimes this will be impossible. Each client is allowed ONE (1) NO-CHARGE cancellation or reschedule with less than 48 hours’ notice. Exception: If a client cancels/reschedules once organizer(s) is en route to their home, it falls under our No Show Policy (see below) and will incur a no show fee of $100. If a client continues to have cancellation and rescheduling issues without appropriate notice, a fee of $100 will be charged for each instance thereafter.
In instances where excessive rescheduling and cancellations occur (3 or more, even with a 48-hour notice), clients will be charged a $50.00 rescheduling/cancellation fee per appointment. If it continues, we may ask the client to find another organizer best suited for his/her scheduling needs. Excessive rescheduling disrupts our service to other clients and negatively impacts our organizers' ability to earn income. Please consider your dates and times carefully when booking your appointments. Get Organized! desires to give every single client our absolute best.
No Show Policy
If organizer(s) is en route to your home or arrives at your home/office for your scheduled appointment and you cancel/reschedule the appointment or request a reduction of the organizing team that has arrived, or if they arrive at your home and you are not at home or ill or have a schedule conflict and are unable to keep the appointment, you will be charged a $100 no show fee plus mileage if applicable. Read the Cancellation Policy above for more information.
When scheduling your consultation, we will obtain your credit card information for billing purposes. We will not bill your credit card for our services until after your appointment in case you choose to pay with cash or check at the time of service. By giving us your credit card information, you accept and agree to our Cancellation and No Show policies.
We accept all major credit cards. Get Organized! will collect credit card information prior to the Design Consultation. Payments will be processed the day of the Design Consultation and thereafter clients will receive weekly invoices for billable service hours. Payments will be due upon receipt.
NOTE: Invoices for design products, furniture and accessories, and outside contractor fees will be billed by the designer directly, and payment will be made to the designer or to the vendor. These costs will not be listed on Get Organized! Design Services invoices.
Get Organized! Design Services is ready to help you get the design of your dreams!
