So we recruited moms with college-age kids of their own who were kind, trustworthy, efficient, smart, hard-working … and patient. These moms work alongside students to help them sort, purge, and pack their belongings for shipping and/or storage.
The moms also work with parents, staying in touch from the time the order is placed until the time the job is completed.
Some students also like to order up a mom to meet them when they arrive in Ann Arbor for a new term, to help them unpack, settle in and set up their spaces.
The service is billed at $300 for the first two hours starting when she arrives in your room. After the first two hours, we charge $150/hr thereafter in quarter-hour increments. Once you order this service you have until the end of the business day to cancel for a full refund. You will incur a $125 cancellation fee if you cancel after that.
Pick-up is included in the service, so you do not have to pay for one the day the mom is there. Packing materials are not included. So please order these for advance delivery. We will refund any unused boxes and the mom will always have a few extra supplies with her.
The typical John's Moms customer spends $800-$1,200, once supplies, shipping, and storage are added on. If you are concerned about limiting your costs please talk to the mom when she calls about setting a cap to her time as well as working together to make prudent decisions about whether some items are worth storing/shipping.
