Maybe you moved in 3 weeks ago, but still have boxes to unpack, or you simply fear tax time, and all that filing or bookwork is looking most ominous. Maybe your backyard looks like a jungle, with a short run way to the clothes line?  Maybe all you need is a cleaner, or would you love a full housekeeping service and somebody to make you a meal & turn down your bed or just fold that washing & put it away.

DontHaveTime can help with it all. With amazing, efficient, meticulous, hardworking, caring, trustworthy, professional staff, and many who have been with us for years!  ALONG with these reasons to choose DontHaveTime, we have also won WOMO's 2020 award, our 9th award in 9 years, all based on real cilents leaving real reviews, feel free to check them out to see the diverse range of ways we can give you back more time!

We are fully insured, fully equipped using environmentally friendly techniques & products to ensure safe for those with allergies & little people or four legged friends.  Now including Covid safe practises & clinnell wipes to help reduce the spread.  This environmental ethic & care of not just the families we take care of, also pushes our determination to leave as minimal footprint throughout our business, to relining bins with completely bio degradable liners made from corn starch, finding better ways to clean with less products (old school) & finding new products that will add less into our already overflowing rubbish dumps!

We are only a small business, so please know we really do care about every job we look after, & have met & trained every employee we hire, to ensure we are not just giving you back the time you are keen to find but ensuring your peace of mind!

WE CARE ABOUT YOUR HOME AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Rest assured that all of our cleaning products are family and environmentally friendly. If you have an allergy, we will accommodate you, and we always ask permission if we feel bleach needs to be used to whiten grout in the bathroom where regular cleaning has failed. Our desire to further reduce our foot print flows through to your finishing touches, and subsequently we have also now become a Biobag distributor!

I HAVE 'LOST MY HOUSE', PLEASE FIND IT AGAIN...

This package is for those who do not know where to begin, maybe they have lost access to a room, or maybe their entire house looks like a salvation army drop off zone rather than home!  These declutter jobs cannot be quoted without being costly, so instead we were going to provide a starter pack of time.

Please note: Extra charges will apply for any storage items required to be purchased for your items. Please advise if you need this before ordering one of these packages/rates.

  • 3 hrs = $210 inc (1 person for 3 hours)
  • 6 hrs = $420 inc (often this means 2 people go out for 3 hours)
  • 9 hrs = $630 inc (we try to have 3 people for 3 hours on this rate – giving you the most efficient service, fastest way to get on top of a room). We also try to ensure we include within those 3 people an organiser, so as we clean and clear, the organiser is able to put those things you wish to keep in an organised place.  Making the process a complete package.

Please note: Decluttering requires you to be home, we need you to advise if you want to keep, throw out, give away or sell an item (recouping some of your declutter costs).  The most effective declutters are where people are able to be decisive with what they are willing to let go.  Please also be aware that these jobs take a long time, one room can be a 9 hour job!  Hence why quoting can be an impossible task, majority of clients declutters revolve around unpacking boxed items and emptying them into piles, cleaning the space & organising items back into that space to provide the most room back for the client. Where items are to be given away, we take straight to our local Salvation Army or local charity store of your choice. We are also fortunate to have a wonderful organisers & declutters as part of our team (Jane, Letka, Arthur & MORE) Great for moving in jobs, or pre-sales declutters, through to setting up a home office, or revising your kitchen!

WE ALSO CAN PACK YOUR ITEMS READY FOR MOVING HOUSE! Sometimes it’s just the kitchen holding people back, let us pack and clean your kitchen for you!

NO JOB IS THE SAME, AND WE CAN CATER TO YOUR SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS BY WORKING ON A BY THE HOUR BASED SERVICE, RATES ARE LISTED ABOVE. THIS WAY YOU NEVER NEED TO PAY FOR THINGS YOU DO NOT WANT, AND IF YOUR BUDGET IS TIGHT, WE ARE ABLE TO CREATE JOB SHEETS TO SUIT THEM.

OUR TEAM

We hire local central coast staff, most often parents/grandparents who are looking for that elusive flexible job between school hours and we do our very best to keep good staff for longer.  Hiring employees drives loyalty, and ensures they are taken care of, legislation requires it.  So they can focus on taking care of you!

And most importantly, if we sell you 4 hours, we will be there for 4 hours. If we complete your job sheet within that time, we will endeavour to do extras until our 4 hours is complete. Such as making beds, putting washing out, ironing, folding washing, tidying toys, extra cleaning that we may not have done within the job sheet initially.

So your feedback is ALWAYS welcome to ensure you get exactly what you want, and ultimately refer us to your friends as you enjoy your weekends again! We guarantee our quality of work, so if you're unhappy with a part of your service, we come back and resolve it!
