Move Manager

More and more people are finding that they don’t have the time, inclination or patience to deal with the many tasks required to undertake the often overwhelming prospect of moving house.

If you find yourself in this category then Cavendish & Country can provide you with the help and assistance you may need to walk through this rather challenging process. Some of the people we’ve helped in the past are either elderly, long term occupiers of a property, single parents, geographically challenged or maybe you are plain and simply too busy with work.

We offer two simple but extremely helpful packages to assist the time and resource challenged sectors of our client base.

Last year (at the age of 80 and 72) we sold our London house and simultaneously bought two small houses 150 miles apart – quite a logistical problem. Ashley organised and oversaw the moves, helped us divide our belongings and disposed of everything we no longer wanted. She dealt with all the agencies at both locations, set up all the accounts and sorted out all the hitches. She is prompt, punctual, good-tempered and tactful and she always completes anything she undertakes. Without Ashley’s lists, spreadsheets, notes, emails, texts and phone calls – and her unswerving support and unfailing memory – we would have foundered in a welter of confusion. Over a year later she is still available to deal with ongoing problems and sudden crises as they arise. We now wonder how we would ever have coped without her.

When I got removal quotes, Cavendish & Country suggested I needed someone to help me with the move. He recommended Ashley whom he has worked with for other clients. She assessed the situation, discussed what she could do, and then set about helping me make decisions and get on with the myriad tasks required when packing and moving from a home you have lived in for 38 years. She has a wealth of contacts at her fingertips, from knowing charities which will send a van to collect, which auctioneers to recommend, and electricians and locksmiths, etc. I could not have managed to move 4 weeks after the exchange of contracts without her, and I commend her to you.
