Every company should be this pleasant, fair, sensitive, transparent, and efficient. The contents of my mother's house included not only her estate but everything that her children had left behind when they moved away. This was a four bedroom home with an attic, basement, and garage. Furniture, clothing, kitchen items, knickknacks, tools, toys books, records, and general detritus acquired over the years needed to be moved out as the house was being sold - too massive a project for the remaining family.
Although I could have hired a trash hauler to take everything to the dumpster, there was much in the house that deserved a second life. Provider name locked. was the perfect person for this task. She was very knowledgeable as to what could be sold, charities who might be interested in donations, and only as a final resort what needed to be thrown away. In addition to her extensive knowledge of the industry and her contacts, she was very sensitive to the feelings of the family who were seeing their childhood possessions dispersed. We were left with a feeling of confidence that some of the family things would find a good home.
She and her company completed the job in two days and left the house broom clean.
This was one of the few times where, as a consumer, I was sure that I had chosen the right person for the job. If you use this company, you won't be sorry. As they say in Australia, "no worries."

Provider name locked. and her Provider name locked. team came to my rescue in a very troubled time. After my Great Aunt passed away and I took on the duties of running the Estate, I faced the overwhelming task of cleaning out her South Chicago building when I live on the other side of the country in Los Provider name locked. . To add to the complexity, she was a very severe hoarder. I unfortunately mean that the building was filled, nearly floor to ceiling, with everything imaginable. I had no idea how to take care of this from afar. It was really daunting, as I wanted to respect my Aunt's home and memory, but the situation needed someone skilled enough to differentiate junk from an antique - I did not just want to trash everything. I wrote to Provider name locked. , and from the very first response they were respectful and professional. We quickly arranged a site inspection at the property through a friend who had keys. They immediately realized that this was an extreme situation and would take a great deal of resources. After an initial bid that was completely acceptable, but above my budget range, they worked with me to adjust the work timetable and I adjusted the scope of the job. The started work within a week of receiving a down payment. After 3 days, and 8 industrial-sized dumpsters were filled, the Provider name locked. team over-delivered on an extremely demanding job. As other reviewers have detailed, they brought in specialty resources to clean up the property responsibly - from scrap metal guys to vintage clothing and antiques buyers - the team provided me with an inventory of items and the sales prices of the items. I do want to stress that this is NOT a low-priced service. The care and professionalism that this crew delivers is in line with the cost of their professional services. I am sorry to say, but those of you who have very little or no estate budget should not look for this type of service - unfortunately, it is not a charity service. Again, they are reasonable paid for their high-quality work. I am forever grateful to this great team - their communication was fantastic (emails, calls, photos) - I felt as if I was aware of every step of the project as it was happening. This was really a gift, considering I was thousands of miles away. They did not shy away from a challenging job that many companies would have easily passed on - and they did their work with pride, and with amazing respect to my Aunt's memory and my family. I have lost a great deal of my close family, and I am so sorry that I didn't have a service like this when I had to clean out other houses. This team has such grace, and they really understand the meaning of being a partner to you through a very emotional time. I feel that Provider name locked. and her crew are actually better suited to normal, non-hoarding, situations - many of their services are actually more valuable when a loved one's home is in a "normal" condition, but a family doesn't know where to start - they can best help in that situation.

Provider name locked. and Provider name locked. was a god-send for me.
I was a bit skeptical about using a company without a personal recommendation but after seeking out 4 other companies---Provider name locked. had her team /contacts were all that I needed and at a competitive financial outcome.
After the unexpected death of my mother, I was left to empty her apartment and get rid of everything. Provider name locked. was the only company willing to come and see the unit and look at things---most other companies wanted photos to see how valuable the items and job would be to them. She traveld 25 miles to my home.
Provider name locked. offered me a variety of options on how to empty the unit and dispose of everything. She was thorough, complete , fair and honest about everything. Her compassion for the process and how difficult it is to let go on a loved one's belongings made the process easier. Her's was a no pressure approach and just plain honest advise- I really appreciated this.
I had no idea how much money I would make and as we often forget- it is costly just to pack up and take things elsewhere- even if to charity. I only made enough to cover my expenses - plus a bonus of $1000.00- but after a lot of leg work and research-- no other company would have done any better. All of the companies I contacted told me that I had less than $15,000 of items and that an on-site estate sale would not be profitable and a real wear and tear on me and my home.
Most companies were even unwiling to deal and with and help me but Provider name locked. was not only willing to assist me in the completion of my project- she made it a lot easier.
She offered me many options- from doing all the work herself to a shared process that saved me a bit of money.
I like the personal approach I got from Provider name locked. as well as the completeness of her services and would highly recommend the services of Provider name locked. of Illinois and Provider name locked. to any one.
