Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

We are friendly and professional home organisers who provide decluttering, downsizing and estate clearance services in the greater Wellington area. We’re here to help people who don’t have the time, strength or support to get these projects done. These jobs can be hard to start so we offer a non-judgemental, personalised service to help you get them underway and completed. That frees you up to get onto whatever you have to do next.

“I employed the services of Sort Out Service to help me through the daunting task of moving house after eleven years in residence. Although I had planned the move for over six months and had started de-cluttering some areas, the final push was very overwhelming and I had been procrastinating for almost two months. Janice came to my rescue like a guardian angel. Her common sense approach was the godsend I needed as we worked alongside each other for a solid two days, boxing up excess, cleaning top to bottom and staging my house for sale. There was no judgment of the mess I had got myself into, and total respect for all my possessions as we discussed what were treasures (to me) and identified what was rubbish. Throughout the process, Janice managed to combine her gentle sense of humour with a determination to keep me focused on the task. Totally recommend Janice and SOS, the best thing I could have done.” Diane, Decluttering and Downsizing in preparation for house sale and moving

“Hi Janice, thank you soooo much for all your help. You were great to work with, really organised and very caring. You never made me feel bad about anything, but completely relieved my mind and got the job done. Kindest regards.” Jackie, Declutter and Downsize ready for house sale

“It was great working with Janice, who helped me stage my large home prior to going to market. Having someone to bounce ideas off who is practical and innovative, worked well and we dressed the house using mainly my own possessions along with a few items I purchased and could use in my next property. It was more fun and much quicker working with Janice. I can highly recommend Janice to anyone needing assistance to get their house ready to sell.” Robyn, Prepare house for sale

“I described Sort Out Service as “midwifery for moving” because of the skill doing varied care during a process of deep importance to the client, but I’m not sure if it’s our beloved old home or our family that is being born.” Susan, Downsize, Find homes for donations in preparation for house sale

“Thank you for your help and kindness.” Marcella, Downsize in preparation for house sale and retirement living

“Thank you with your support for the house clearance…brilliant!!” Gillian, Declutter, Living estate clearance

“Janice, thanks so much we really appreciate all the hard work you guys have put in. It has certainly helped us tremendously through this process. It is an absolutely wonderful service you offer and we won’t forget the help you have been. Thank you again.” Dan, Estate clearance, Find homes for donations and Clean

“Hi Janice…We are enjoying the extra space upstairs. Thank you also for letting me know where the donations have gone: it’s great to know that the items will be put to good use. I very much appreciate all the work you’ve done to start us on the road to downsizing: it has made a real difference having the help of an experienced professional who is not emotionally involved with the home and contents.
Post the property sale: Thank you very much for your help with decluttering and organising the other services which were crucial in getting my house ready for sale." Wendy, Decluttering and Downsizing in preparation for house sale and moving

“Hi Janice, Thanks so much for the great work you did in making our parent’s property more like the home we remembered it to be.
It was a huge job and I certainly couldn’t have done it physically and emotionally without your support. We have certainly sung your praises to all our friends who have followed the progress. I would have cried if I couldn’t laugh about it. A couple of groups we belong to may contact you to give a talk. Thanks so much." Carol, Decluttering, Find homes for donations and Clean in preparation for property sale

“Janice, a huge thank you for all you did yesterday.  It's miraculous AND the amount of stuff, some if it very heavy, you shifted all by yourself is also miraculous. You are a true gem & so lucky our daughter found you.  Will C U again soon ❤.”
“The realtor was impressed with the amazing changes & amount of work that had been done & I happily told him who'd dunnit with the trusty help of Jude.  Awesome forces had been at work here all done by a gorgeous swan" Marea, Downsizing, Donations to charity, cleaning
