Compare professional organizer rates by calling or emailing different organizers and getting quotes for your project. Learn about the organizers' services and how they plan to cater to your organizational needs. When comparing prices, keep in mind not only the price, but also the value of the services offered and whether the organizer can meet your short- and long-term organizational needs. By interviewing several organizers, you can learn a reasonable price range for your area and needs.
One good resource to find professional organizers to interview and compare is the National Association of Professional Organizer's directory, available online at NAPO.net. As of August 2015, professional organizers generally charge from $30 to $80 per hour or $200 to $375 per project in an average-sized room. The specific price varies by the project's size and complexity, as well as the client's location.
NAPO.net offers a list of suggested interview questions to help customers determine the prices that organizers charge and what services they offer. The list includes questions about the organizer's specialty services, professional certifications, fee structure, contract policy and references. Keep a record of the answers to these questions to compare the different organizers you interview and determine which one to hire.
