This is my 2nd time engaging with Basic Organization for helping me with my move to a new house. They were great to work with and super organized! Got my house converted to a home in record time. It looks beautiful. The team is great to work with. Moves can be stressful but they make it easy and hassle-free. Women superpower of organization!!

Absolutely a wonderful experience! Tackling a full garage is a daunting task and the team dug in and it was amazing to see the transformation. They were wonderful, nonjudgmental and very efficient. Now that I can see what I have I am inspired to let go of more things. It is so amazing to have my garage back! Highly recommend Basic Organization, a great bunch of people!!!

Janet runs a well organized team, she is passionate about organization, efficient with her time and lovely to work with. I highly recommend for any size project, either small storage solutions or helping you unpack after a big move. So glad we found them!

Basic Organization couldn't be any better! Janet is thoughtful and patient and wants to make your moving experience the best. Sandy and Denene worked very hard--efficient and effective--and were super pleasant. I had Basic Organization declutter, pack, and unpack. They also recommended the mover, who was just as excellent. Hire them!!!

Highly efficient, well organized. Arrived on time and worked fast. Job was more complex than most in that packing was done in two stages months apart and half of each load was going into storage and half to the new residence. They organized and labeled each box as to destination as well as to contents.

Janet and her team are THE BEST. I have used them on a regular basis for over 10 years, but they outdid themselves when they helped me with a recent move. They sorted and packed 25 years worth of accumulated stuff. They coordinated and oversaw the move and, best of all, unpacked everything at the new house and put it in its place. It made a very stressful life event manageable!

Deborah

Vienna, VA

Denene is fabulous! She helped us re organize a garage full of gear. She helped us with a master plan and provided shelving and container recommendations. This is our fourth time working with Denene and we find comfort in knowing we can continue to reach out to her to maintain our organized life as our children grow and their items and gear change along the way.

Great service and wonderful people to work with. They got more done in 3 hours than I had gotten done in 3 years! If you need help with storage units, basements or garages please call Basic Organization, worth every penny.

I reached out to Basic Organization to help me unload 30 plus years of accumulated living. I hit the jackpot! The women are amazing!!! They helped me make solid choices about what to keep and how to keep it. They were non- judgmental. Everything has a place. I cannot recommend this company highly enough. Many thanks Janet, Denene and Sandy. You are lifesavers.

Janice

Herndon, VA

Denene and Lori are amazing!! I just moved into my apartment and was completely overwhelmed. They started with my bedroom, bathroom, and closet. A couple weeks later they came back to help with my kitchen. The rooms look amazing now! Everything has a place. This is helping me keep it up. It felt like I had a couple friends over. Definitely give them a try. 😊

Sarah

Reston, VA

Lori and the team did a great job in my garage. It was a project I planned to do myself, but kept putting off week after week. Finally, I decided to call in the pros. They did a great job and finished in about 3 hours. They are also priced fairly. All in all, a great experience!

Zach

Alexandria, VA

I recommend Basic Organization with the highest recommendation possible. Janet, Denene, Patti and Sandy were truly my fairy godmothers. The team helped us get our 5,000 square foot home to our family of five ready for market in less than a week. Our realtor is increasing our list price by $50k and planning on multiple offers. I literally could not have done it without them!

Trip

Clifton, VA

Denene and Janet were wonderful to work with! It was so great learning better ways to organize and to have them really ask the questions that need asking when trying to purge and organize. I would 100% hire them again.

Christine

Annandale, VA

Janet, Denene, and Sandy helped us accomplish in 3 sessions what we couldn't accomplish in 4 years. We tackled our garage and workshop. This investment was well worth it! Our garage is now organized neatly with labels. And the best part is we know where to find things now!! We are very happy with this service and would highly recommend Basic Organization!

Jackie

Aldie, VA

Loved working with Janet and company! They are wonderful. They helped us clean out our garage and we could not be happier with it. They keep you on-task while you sort through your things and will even take things away to donate for you. My garage looks three times bigger!

Marsha

Vienna, VA

I have used Basic Organization twice in the past two years to pack for across town move and, in the most recent case, to unpack. Janet and her team are organized, have great ideas. Ultimately, they make the process of moving so much less stressful. Janet also made referrals to movers and other service providers. I can’t recommend them enough!

Andy

Washington DC

I had to clear out my brother's house following his death, but couldn't travel due to COVID-19. Basic Organization was wonderful. Janet is professional, deeply experienced, friendly and a good communicator. She used technology to provide me ways to be involved from a distance and make the hard decisions. I enjoyed working with her and recommend her with enthusiasm.

Sharon

New Carrollton, MD

Feels like family! I absolutely love being organized but became lax and then saddened by "my messy house". Denene put my things in logical places after checking with me to see if I agreed with her ideas. She is smart, sweet and especially fun to work with. I have worked with different people from Basic Org. over the last four years and each and every one was a delight. 💛💜

Evelyn

Silver Spring, MD

I needed help packing up then unpacking following floor replacement throughout the house. Denene and Lori worked quickly and efficiently. I asked to have each room put back the way they found it and they really did it, down the order of the books on the shelves. I highly recommend the company. They are very professional and excellent at what they do.

Dorothy

Oakton, VA

I have worked with Basic Organization many times during the past few years and every experience is first-rate. Most recently, I hired them to organize my move from a house to a condo. Thanks to the amazing team within 24 hours of my stuff being delivered, Basic Organization had everything set up and ready for me to enjoy. Made moving almost stress-free!

Gina

Falls Church, VA

This is a wonderful group of women who have helped me make my house the home I always wanted. They are professional, enthusiastic and creative. Janet provides practical solutions for disposing what you don’t want and how to store what you keep. In addition to organizing, they have helped me with holiday decorating and take-down. I highly recommend Basic Organization!

Kitty

Gainesville, VA

Thanks again for all of your assistance. Both cars have been parked in the garage since yesterday afternoon.

Michael

Burke, VA

Patti was super fantastic and I can’t be more pleased with the transformation of my bedroom. What she was able to help me accomplish in 3 hours was more than I had done in over a year. It truly was impressive. She is patient, kind, efficient, and focused which were all needed to get through that experience. I am so proud of myself and my home.

Teresa

Mclean, VA

I have been meaning to tell you what a life-saver you turned out to be! Our basement flooded last month during the big rain. We lost our carpet, but thanks to you, nothing else! Your reorg of our basement and garage and your recommendation that everything be up off the floor and organized on shelves probably saved us thousands of dollars in ruined outdoor and house gear.

Janine

Falls Church, VA

I am enjoying my “new” house so much. I hardly had to do any work to get ready for the cleaning lady this week. It was so easy to lay my hands on my sewing supplies. I think about you often, because I’m enjoying much more freedom without all the extra stuff I had in my house. You got me out of the “stuckness” I’d been in for a long time.

Cheryl

Oakton, VA

My office feels so different. The desk has space to create and work. The piles are gone and the valuable pieces sit in files. I have more energy. I look forward to future improvements in our lives.

Mary

Vienna, VA

I had a closet filled with family photographs, letters, wills, going back four generations, not having the slightest idea of how to process this material. Patti is teaching me how to load everything to internet sites so my extended family members will have access to this material. Patti has given me a dream come true.

Linda

So far, Basic Organization has been the best part of 2020, 2021 and 2022! Thank you for helping me keep it all straight!
