Q. Was there anything that prompted you to look for concierge or organising services?
A. I had a very tight time frame in which to move house in the school holidays and needed it to not interfere with my work commitments.
Q. What specific challenges did you have, and how was it impacting upon your lifestyle?
A. My specific challenge was that I had to organise the final touches on our new home which had been renovated, and move in, all within a week. I also had a 50th birthday party planned for my husband in our new home the weekend after we were moving in, PLUS the kids going back to school the following week. The team actually had to pack up our stuff whilst I was interstate on business without any direction from me!
Q. Why did you choose The Concierge Collective over another service?
A. I had worked with Adele Blair earlier in my career, before I had a PA. She had assisted me with organising special family and staff parties when I was really snowed under with work. Adele is super organised and onto every detail!
Q. Did we deliver the solutions you were looking for?
A. The Concierge Collective team are truly the moving and organising experts. They think of everything! I was particularly impressed with their ability to make all wardrobes and shelving fit into a new home with built ins!
Q. How has engaging The Concierge Collective changed your lifestyle?
A. In just 3 days I was able to have my home ready for my family to walk into with EVERYTHING in place. And have a fabulous 50th birthday party.
Q. What has been the stand out moment of our services to you?
A. Karen, their expert organiser, wanting to move the couch and rug millimetres left and right to make the space perfect. And pulling out the Howards Storage catalogue and writing down the code for me to buy a specific sized container to fit our medicines in to fit in our kitchen shelf!
Q. Would you recommend The Concierge Collective to others?
A. I would highly recommend The Concierge Collective to other busy women who are juggling organising family and a cascade of commitments in tight time frames.
Q. Anything else you would like to add?
A. It’s overwhelming to watch all of your possessions come off a truck and know exactly where everything should go. As a team, they really took the stress out of this by just getting in and making a start. They kept calm and carried on!
