All good agents and stylists will tell you that for a successful sale, it is imperative to de-clutter your home. We often help home sellers sort through their belongings, prior to styling and every one of them are surprised at how much “stuff” they have. This is then followed up with, “what on Earth are we going to do with it all?” So, today I thought we could cover storage and sale options for those things that aren’t needed while your home is staged for sale.

TAKE THEM WITH YOU

Storage Sheds

  • Secure Storage facility
  • Range of sizes – 1m x 1m up to a mini warehouse
  • See Storage King or Kennards

Portable Storage

Garden Shed

Not many people look inside the typical garden shed…..so if it doesn’t leak, use it!

Your New Home!!

If you have purchased your new home before you sell, why not take the extra ‘stuff’ to the new house?

DOWNSIZE

Old, broken, duplicates, upgraded or buyers remorse. There are plenty of reasons why you might decide not to take something with you. Maybe your new abode is smaller and now your furniture is too big or you have too much? Whatever the reason, there are plenty of money friendly ways to recycle or dispose of your belongings.

Donate it

  • St Vincents De Paul
  • Lifeline
  • The Salvation Army
