Step by Step

While every situation is unique, here is a typical step-by-step summary: 

STEP ONE: Discuss the job & develop an estimate

The Client meets with a Long World Facilitator remotely or in person for a no-commitment, no-cost meeting. 

The Client tells the Facilitator about the Loved One’s property, providing information about the size and location of the home, number of rooms, approximate amount of belongings, and plans for the Loved One’s property. 

Please see the cost section of the website for an outline of charges.

STEP TWO: Review documents 

After the initial meeting, the Facilitator provides a document outlining the timeline and price of the job. If the Client wants to proceed, a start date is determined. 


The Client provides an upfront payment for the project. 


STEP FOUR: Long World puts the home to rest

The Facilitator begins the job. The Facilitator can 

  • complete or arrange yard cleanup 

  • secure the property

  • complete or arrange household repairs

  • organize, log, and photograph items with sentimental or monetary value 

  • ship, store, or transport items 

  • donate designated items

  • arrange consignment, private sales, or an estate sale 

  • remove recycling, chemicals, electronics, metal, refuse, and perishable items 

  • locate and scan documents to close an estate

  • organize, store, ship, or dispose of private/confidential belongings

  • care for, place, or transport pets 

  • clean 

  • transform the home into an Airbnb

  • stage the property for a realtor  

STEP FIVE: Documentation

When the project is finished, the Client receives a report detailing Long World’s work (including home inspection, photos of repairs, and tax donation forms).

Before leaving the Loved One’s home, the Facilitator provides one final video—that is, an “After” summary—documenting the current state of the home.
