Value of a Helping Hand?
One of the biggest questions I ask is: What value does my service bring to families experiencing family crisis like illness and death?
I have been there and done it for my family over the years! I understand how a family member feels when they get thrown into family situations that are overwhelming and out of the normal comfort zone. There is little support and lots of fear – doing it right, making mistakes, etc., while not knowing where to start and what to do. That’s why I love what I do— helping other families in similar situations find solutions – and why I started my business. I understand what families are experiencing making life changing decisions and moves while being on an emotional roller coaster is challenging but necessary. Someone needs to step up and take over. I would have loved that option! Back in the day; you rolled up your sleeves did it yourself, hired a mover, junk man, or a dumpster and hoped for the best. There was plenty of moral support and advice from family and friends but what I wanted was practical, efficient solutions in order to get back to my life.
So the short answer to my question is: I use my knowledge and expertise to guide families through a family life changing crisis, and the value is priceless.
Moving is one of the most stressful activities we participate in during our lives and being the designated family member it is twice as hard. It does not have to be. When families cannot be available, for whatever reasons, for the actual hands on work involved with downsizing and moving; my company, WITTZ END, becomes the trusted adviser steering families through various pitfalls of quickly organizing and carrying out the necessary solution to the problem.
Along this journey I found myself working many years in the moving industry. Many times, I rolled up my sleeves and pitched in on an actual move. Whether it was preparing estimates, setting up the paperwork, or talking with customers about their moves, and I acquired a deep respect and understanding for my clients’ possessions and what they have and are going through.
