So happy to take this opportunity to tell you how pleased we were with the help you gave us when we decided to downsize and move. We sure sorted through a ton of stuff and got things ready for a garage sale which, I will say, was most successful. Also the items we took to the antique dealer, at your suggestion, was an excellent idea and, although it is hard to let things go, it definitely was time. Your help with the actual move made things so much easier. Thanks again.

It’s always a good idea before we come to your house and start making changes, for you to take some time to sit quietly and think about what you would like to see happen. If you are not sure what that is, then here are some things you may want to consider.
Before getting started –
Discuss with family members what they want – We don’t want any surprises. There’s nothing worse than to donate something your loved one was hoping they would get. We can work out how to get the items to them later.
Get Generous – Gift items you no longer need or have room for. This could be for grandchildren, children(keep in mind – they too may be purging) friends & other family members. Wouldn’t it be nice to see your possessions in the house of your loved ones when you go to visit?
What’s important – Write down things that are important to you so we don’t miss anything. As we get started, you may become overwhelmed so it’s good to have things written down to reference.
What stays – depends on the size of home you are moving to and what will fit. We will make a floorplan together of your new home (if you have a new one picked out already). If you are remaining in your home and we are simply reorganizing your space to give you more room, then we need to know what must stay.
What must go – Items that you want to see go right away.
Your Privacy is very important to us - We follow a strict code of Ethics, drawen up by NASMM (National Association of Senior Move Managers). We do not share any information about you, your family or your home with anyone. However, if there is anything in your home you do not want us to see, you can remove it or keep it behind a closed door. We all have up to date police checks done for your protection & safety.
Everyone has their scary room, closet or drawer - that they don’t want anyone to see. We are not here to pass judgement, just the opposite! We are here to help you downsize and organize. However, if you feel the need to straighten up those unseen areas you certainly can but it’s unnecessary. Remember you are not alone.
We will Create a Floor Plan –
Once you have found your new home, we will make a floor plan of every room.
This guarantees you only bring what will fit.
