What does the Organise Optimise consultation involve?

Do you undertake seasonal wardrobe turnarounds?
Absolutely. Space is a sought after commodity and if you are city living or yacht based there will always be constrictions. We can help you decipher which pieces to keep year round or store seasonally and will ensure full care is given to the garments as they make their move between closet and storage.

Yes indeed. Undertaking a full inventory enables the client family to double check there are no items they wish to retain that may have been missed on a walk through or due to the fact family members aren't physically able to visit the location itself. For the buyer, a concise inventory enables them to know what they are buying in addition to the asset (property/yacht in black and white and it assists them moving forwards with their interior designers, smoothing the process for all.

Unlike our competitors we go an extra mile or two, rather than simply suggesting the trash and offering a charity run we have forged relationships with third party specialists; auction houses, luxury preloved clothing retailers plus fine wine specialists to move your goods on. Alternatively we can resell the on another site, once the decluttering process is complete we will ask you to complete an authorization form to let us handle the goods on your behalf and you can choose between paying an hourly rate or percentage of gross sale rate from this point.
