Decluttering Service

You’ll probably want the best possible price for your home and a quick sale; this is where our decluttering service - with the additional option of temporary storage - can help. Remember; the Buyer’s first impression is critical!

Your family home may be adorned with your personal possessions such as photos, mementos from holidays, children’s artwork and toys, favourite colours and unique possessions, however this is not the look you want when trying to prepare your home for sale.

A buyer shouldn’t have to look past your possessions to imagine if their family will fit in and therefore you want to create the opposite – a clean simple background that would suit any buyer.

Here are our decluttering tips to help you achieve the best possible price and a quick sale.

Street Appeal

A fresh coat of paint does wonders. Pressure clean paths, driveways and the garage door. Wash windows and buy a new front door mat. Weed garden beds, prune shrubs/trees, mow the lawn and trim edges. Fertilize lawns the month before.

Declutter Living Areas

You want to create the feeling of space and you should also try to how off a feature in this room, whether be the lovely flooring, a piece of furniture or a view.

Remove furniture from under windows, beside doorways and away from the traffic areas. Clean up bookshelves and sideboards.

Remember less is best. Store cluttered items.

Kitchen / Linen Closet

Declutter and wipe out cupboards leaving only the essentials. Box up additional items for storage. Prospective buyers will open cupboards. Clean kitchen tiles, windows, taps and oven. Replacing kitchen cupboard handles will do wonders to a tired kitchen for only a small cost.

Remember - Decluttering prior to your property sale will make packing up your home a lot easier and more time efficient on removal day.


The garage often becomes the dumping ground. Box up items from shelves and bench tops for storage (boxes are available from our box shop).

Dispose of old paint tins & unwanted bits of hardware. Put bikes, camping gear, bar fridge, exercise equipment and seasonal sporting goods into storage.


Remove toiletries from bench tops and shower recess, clean mirrors and glass, remove toilet brushes and cleaning products. Invest in new towels and fold them carefully. Add only a bowl or vase of fresh flowers to the bench top. Replace soaps with fresh soaps.
