“John & Mary” spent many happy years in their family home. Over time they made their house their own, making lots of improvements, collecting artwork, furniture and the memories and belongings left as a result of raising two children there. It wasn’t an easy decision to leave but now that their kids have had children of their own and flown the nest, they felt it was time to downsize to a more suitably sized property, for just the two of them to enjoy.
When they put the house on the market and started to prepare for the move, it was a surprise to both Mary & John, just how much stuff they had acquired over the years! Over time they had increased the amount of storage space in their home, including the attic, the garage and the shed and it was soon obvious that they wouldn’t be able to take everything with them. The process of deciding what should stay and what should go had begun.
Once they had closed the deal on their new house, it was clear that not all of their existing furniture, art, collectables and belongings were going to fit into their new, smaller home. They decided to sell at auction and their kids wanted the odd piece, but they didn’t want to get rid of everything at this stage, so they contacted us about storage.
We went to their home and packed and wrapped the art work and collectables safely in protective wrapping and boxes. We also carefully removed some of the larger family pieces of furniture and packed everything into one of our moving trucks. We took everything back to our storage facility and securely packed it into a couple of our 250 cubic feet storage crates, which is where it is today.
