The Worst Parts of Moving...
We think your move should be exciting, not stressful.
That's why we take care of all the hard parts of moving. So you can walk out of your current home and then walk into your new home, with everything taken care of in between.
Who Is This For?
Individuals & Families
That can happen.
Seniors in Transition
Communities & Facilities
We Get It.
Moving Can Feel Overwhelming
But it doesn’t have to.
For over 10 years, we have been helping people skip the hard parts of moving and see just how smooth the process can be with the right team in place.
Here is what some of them have had to say about their experience:
Tears came to my eyes as I looked at the great result with no help from me or my family. It was great!
Unbelievably, I was able to sleep in my cozy bedroom and wake up to a very beautiful home with everything in place the very next day.
NASMM has awarded our team with an A+ rating and inducted us into the Diamond Society, which is reserved for those with the highest level of service for over 10 years. In fact, we are the only organization in North Florida to have received an A+ rating from NASMM.
Here's How it Works
Schedule a Free Consultation
Give us a call and we'll send someone out to you for a free consultation.
We'll talk about your plans and make sure we understand your needs and you understand every piece of the process.
Get a Customized Move Plan
From measuring every piece of furniture to planning where every box is going to go, your move manager has every detail covered from that moment on.
We'll even help you downsize and sell things that can't go.
Skip All the Worry & Work of Moving
Take some time off and we'll pack every item in your house, label it, manage your movers, make sure every box is where it needs to go, and you don't have to lift a finger or worry about a thing.
Walk Into Your New Home, Set Up the Way You Want It
This is going to be the easiest move you’ll ever make. You get to walk into your new home with everything in place, the beds made, and the TV is working without having to unpack a single box.
Most move management companies don't tell you what it's going to cost until after they're already billing you.
We want to make sure you have at least a general idea of ranges so you can estimate costs for your project.
We just think this is a good way to do business.
The prices below reflect the "full-service" move management. If you need a smaller portion for your specific move (just packing for example) schedule a consultation and we can walk you through what that looks like.
$1,500 - $3,000
$3,000 - $5,000
These are for larger homes with a lot more items to manage or unique factors that would need to be coordinated.
Large - Extra Large
$5,000 - $8,000
These are for large estates or situations that require a great deal more coordination to manage from beginning to end.
Please note that Ideal Move handles all the aspects of coordinating your move, but these prices ranges above do not include the cost of the movers.
We find, manage, coordinate, and oversee either a trusted mover in our database or the movers of your choice, but you would pay the movers directly.
In addition to move management, we also offer:
Estate Clean Out
Whether from the passing of a loved one or a need to liquidate assets, our team can help organize, catalog, and prepare items in an estate for sale. We will even coordinate with appraisers or antique specialists for rare or unique items.
We come into your home and prepare it for showings so potential buyers canvisualize themselves living there rather than feeling like they're in someone else's home. Proper staging is a key factor in ensuring a home doesn't stay on the market long.
Downsizing & Organizing
If you need to create more space or declutter your home, our team walks youthrough the process of deciding what to keep, what to sell, and what to get rid of. We help organize and simplify your current home.
Our team assists with purchasing new furniture for your new home so it looks exactly the way you imagined it without the hassle of going shopping and moved in.
