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.
STEP THREE: Payment
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
arrange yard cleanup and yard maintenance
secure the property
complete or schedule household repairs
organize, log, and photograph items that may have sentimental or monetary value
ship, store, or transport items
donate designated items
arrange consignment or an estate sale
remove recycling, chemicals, electronics, metal, refuse, and perishable items
locate and scan documents
organize, store, ship, or dispose of private/confidential belongings
care for, place, or transport pets
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.
