Estate clearances and
aged care moves

Are you responsible for dealing with the home of a family member?
We can help you get to the finish line.

Honouring legacies and sharing the load

There’s a lot that goes on when a loved one passes or moves to aged care. Thirty-plus years of possessions are difficult for one person to deal with by themselves.

Sorting and rehoming items according to your wishes

Though the temptation to “throw everything in the skip” is there, families often use us because they want to keep items out of landfill and make sure that everything that can be donated goes to a good home.

Estate clearance services

We handle the possessions from a life well lived in an efficient and sensitive manner

Sorting

We’ll help you to sort the home contents and re-home items as needed.

Sales

Basic staging

We can use your furniture or clear the home to present the house for sale.

The care in their name really is in the work that they do. Melissa was like a member of the family – and without her and her team, and their combined local knowledge, we could not have accomplished all that needed to be done to move a loved one into a nursing home from a house full of memories.

Transparent pricing

Our in-person services are charged at a flat hourly rate of $110/hour (including GST and packing supplies). Minimum session time of 2 hours applies.


Q & A

If you choose to sell items from the home, Rachel from our team, who has a background in working with sales of collectibles, will separate and/or catalogue saleable items. We can then organise for those items to be taken to an auction house or sold to a specialist dealer.

For items that can be donated, we make sure they go to the “right place”. For example, usable food goes to a Street Pantry, old blankets go to the RSPCA, and we will use specialist charities for items such as musical instruments.

We can give a ballpark quote of what similar jobs have cost in the past. Our pricing is fixed at $110/hour per person, including GST and packing supplies. We simply invoice weekly for the hours worked each week.

Where we are helping you meet a real estate deadline, we can help to turn around the home in 2-3 weeks. Where it is a more sensitive situation, we can work with you as needed over a longer timeframe.

We can help sell or sort items as required. We simply charge our hourly rate for any of the work that you would like us to do. Whether you want us to sort one cupboard or a garage packed to the rafters!

We always set aside boxes of personal papers and other items as appropriate for family to decide upon.

My sister, my husband and I were very happy with the thorough effort Melissa and her team put into clearing out our Dad’s home of the last 27 years. The process was smooth and coordinated right from my first meeting with Melissa at the house. We highly recommend Melissa and her team and would not hesitate to use them again.
