How we help Seniors and their Families
Our aim is to take the stress out of moving home for you and your family, while giving you the peace of mind your property is being dealt with compassionately.
Your items are carefully sorted. Quite often items of financial and/or sentimental value are found, including items thought to have been lost forever.
Working with you, helps to determine what you would love to keep and move to your new home, plus send/give to family and friends. You also receive some companionship and support during this emotional time.
Listening to your stories, helps us to identify what is sentimental to you and your family, what items are of value and who you would like to continue to cherish them. You chose your amount of involvement in the project, preferred charity(s) and any preferred service providers.
Once we have packed the items to be kept, we move them to the new home, unpack and put them away, making the place look homely. Having moved several seniors into aged care facilities, we have an understanding of how much can be taken and will fit, including items to make it feel like your place.
Your health is of importance to us, so we ensure you take appropriate breaks, and we will do all the heavy lifting for you. To reduce the emotional stress related to moving and of having to make many hard choices of what to take and what to discard when downsizing, we organise your project timeframes to suit you. Often selling, donating and discarding items after you have settled into your new home.
How we help for Deceased Estates
It is a very emotional and stressful time when losing a loved one. There is also a great deal of work to be done by the Executor of the Will or the administrator.
Being an executor may be a part of your business, or you may be a family member or a great friend of the newly deceased and now their executor. Either way, you may not be used to clearing out a home and overwhelmed with the thought of where to start and how to go about it.
We tailor a package to suit your requirements, so you let us know what services you require so we can provide you with a no obligation free quote. As we are a one stop shop when it comes to house clearance, you will receive invoice(s) only from us, simplifying your accounts administration.
Regular communication with the executor enables Colomba Property to ensure the property is dealt with appropriately, in a timely manner and to the benefit of the beneficiaries. Whether you would like the property cleared quickly or over an extended period of time, it is your choice.
We are able to provide an inventory of items and price guide for selling items.
Family tensions sometimes create issues when dealing with property, so we will refer to the executor for guidance, whilst ensuring the sentimental and valued items are kept.
If you or a loved one is upgrading/downsizing by choice or due to unforeseen circumstances; or you need to clear a deceased estate on the Sunshine Coast, please call Colomba Property today to arrange your free in-home consultation and a personalised quote.
Our meeting can be in person or via a video conference call if family are unable to make it to the Sunshine Coast – especially during the COVID-19 restrictions.
Please remember, your home is different to your neighbours and our other clients, as are your personal circumstances and health. Thus, we provide individual quotes, based on how much you will do and what assistance/services you require.
