Hi Tracy/Marcus, Dad is settling in very well. Thank you so much for your help over the past weeks, that has made “the move” manageable and relatively stress-free. We’ve made great progress the past 2 days (pictures on the wall and only 2 boxes left to unpack!) and the flat is very much starting to look like a home. Marcus - thanks for the advice on keeping the TV unit in the hall - Peter is using it to hold on to as you predicted, which is something I wouldn’t have thought of.
Best regards and thank you again for the caring, expert service. Mr H, Tring
Marcus came to help me with a complicated move in early 2019 when I moved from a very large flat to a very small one .
So lorry loads went to each of my 3 children and to my new home and leftovers had to be removed. He was invaluable. He seemed to know the answer to everything and chased issues like complications with phones or garden plants or goods to be abandoned with ingenuity and a calmness that I certainly wasn’t providing. Nothing was too much trouble and he would arrive at all times of day to tackle decluttering or problems which he invariably solved . His knowledge and attitude were constantly helpful. I don’t know if I’d have ever moved if it hadn’t been for his support. I recommend him enthusiastically. Mrs G, London
Fiona was an incredible help to us when clearing out my uncles flat after he passed away. The job was not an easy one but Fiona methodically led us through what would have been an immense task with good humour and sensitivity. Fiona provided solutions that were workable, practical and sensible to issues as they arose in the clearance that as a relative you are too close to the problem to solve. I would highly recommend Fiona in supporting you. Mrs P, Cambs
"Mum and I cannot thank you enough for your help over the last couple of weeks. We never expected to achieve so much in a relatively short time. You listened to our needs and wishes, gave sound advice when asked, and dealt with a lifetimes possessions with care and feeling, whether it was just clearing old magazines or items of value, personal or in monetary terms. It has made us not afraid to open the cupboards and drawers, and has even encouraged us to enjoy the de-clutter experience. We would thoroughly recommend you to anyone facing life choices." Ms TB, Borehamwood
Fiona helped me at a time where I had to move from a very large house to a small terrace due to divorce. I had accumulated far too much "stuff" over the years, "stuff" I thought was important, but realise now was actually dragging me down. I realised it had to go, but Fiona was the key to helping me de-clutter in a manner that made me feel good about it. She was very efficient, realistic but sensitive at the same time. A few things that Fiona said stuck with me so I now have the added bonus of being able to remind myself of them and stop myself accumulating possessions all over again. Ms I, Cambridge
"You’ve done an amazing job sorting and clearing the house and any sad thoughts I have are more than offset by the relief that the job has been completed with such efficiency and speed with comparatively little contribution from me!! I am feeling much more relaxed about everything now and that is mostly down to your help and sensitive support. I can’t thank you both enough, you have been worth your weight in gold."Mrs G, St Albans
"Tracy is a star. She made the task of moving home after 40 years, when I did not want to but had to for health reasons, so much more bearable. I really appreciated her kindness and understanding at a difficult time." Mrs D, Muswell Hill
" My 10-year old daughter’s room and walk-in wardrobe were extremely cluttered, to the point where neither myself nor my daughter could find some of her precious things or specific clothes. It looked such a mess! My daughter didn’t want anything to be thrown out without her permission first, so she and Tracy worked together to sort through all her things. At the outset, it seemed a mammoth task, but Tracy worked methodically and extremely patiently with my daughter, gently encouraging her to sort the belongings she wanted to keep, and identifying those she was willing to part with, reassured that these would go to a local charity shop and not just be thrown away. Tracy worked wonders! She also came up with some great storage solutions, including a new chest of drawers (efficiently put together by Marcus) and a variety of storage boxes for her previously cluttered wardrobe and shelves. The end result is a bedroom that looks neat, organised, more grown-up, and my daughter can now find her things quickly and easily, making it much easier for her to keep her room tidy in the future. I keep walking into her bedroom and find myself marvelling at how wonderful and spacious it now looks! It feels like a different room! I can’t thank Tracy and Marcus enough for their help in transforming my daughter’s bedroom. I would whole-heartedly recommend their services to anyone looking for kind and sensitive support in de-cluttering." Ms B, Hertford
"Having felt unwell for a time, I’d let my house get into a mess. I had the best intentions to clean up but they never amounted to anything. It became hard to clean because of the clutter and the whole place was driving me crazy. It wasn't nice to come home to.
Eventually I just decided to bite the bullet. I needed help. I contacted Tracy who came to discuss what I wanted and she was totally unfazed by the mess. Everything that could be recycled was recycled which made it easier for me to part with things,. Tracy was totally non-judgemental, nothing went out unless I said so and where I was having trouble making a decision we talked about it until I was happy with my decision. It was all totally at my pace yet it was amazing how much we got through in one afternoon. I cannot tell you how happy I am that I decided to seek Tracy’s help. Not only is my house much tidier and cleaner, I feel so much better in myself, I had no idea how the mess was affecting my mood and well- being. My only regret is that I didn’t do it much earlier." Ms L, Welwyn
"This was more than a de-clutter. Tracy is a gifted lady in understanding and communicating as well as in the art of de-cluttering. This is therapy!! I worked with Tracy as she helped me make decisions to sort, remove stuff and create order in my daughter's bedroom where there is a large family wardrobe. We then had a further session to sort the 'full to overflowing' garden shed. The results are extrememly rewarding and I'm hoping we can have Tracy back. Tracy is sensitive, motivating and thorough. Everything unwanted was taken away for rubbish, charity shop or re-cycling. A rare find for an overwhelming task! Thank you Tracy." Mrs R, Harpenden
"I highly recommend Tracy for her expertise in not only decluttering your home, but in doing it with wit and such care for one's feelings when confronted by so many memories. I wish her well." Mrs U, Harpenden
"Thanks so much for all the hard work you and Marcus have put in for clearing the house.You've been an absolute pleasure to deal with and have been incredibly sensitive to us all during this difficult time, so I'd like to thank you on behalf of my siblings and I for making this part of the journey so much easier. It's also great to see the various charities and local groups that have benefited from the house clearance, Mum was a keen supporter of charities and local groups so we all know she'd be happy to hear everything has gone to a good and useful home." Mr W, Baldock
"Tracy offered skilled and sensitive support to declutter some rooms in my house which I felt unable to tackle on my own. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge about charities and recycling, is a brilliant organiser and the best bit is, she takes all the unwanted stuff away. Tracy doesn't make judgements, nor does she take control, just gently making suggestions and asking questions. She works incredibly fast and in a short space of time years of jumble and clutter have disappeared. A weight has been lifted from my shoulders and previously no-go areas in the house have become ordered and useful again. A fantastic service and extremely good value." Mrs G, St Albans
"It's difficult to express in words, the profound impact of Tracy's support in helping me settle at my new place.
Being physically challenged, going through emotionally difficult phase and being on my own, I was unable to unpack & settle at my new place.Tracy's professionalism, enthusiasm with compassion and understanding made it possible in making my new place a home.
Initially I was a little apprehensive with the concept of Tracy's services because I had given up all hope, motivation and desire to ever being able to make the new place as my own.I had 3 session with Tracy and each minute was valuable and worth each penny.
Thanks to Tracy, I feel settled at my new place & express my gratitude in supporting and helping me make the new place my home." Ms M, St Albans
"I have been very blessed by the work that Tracy has done for me over the past few weeks. I was very depressed by the amount of clutter that I had accumulated over the past 30 years . I was too ashamed to allow people to visit me but thanks to Tracy's tremendous work I cannot wait for visitors to start to come once more.
I think that the greatest help was Tracy's totally non-judgmental attitude and the knowledge that nothing would be thrown away that could possibly be put to some useful purpose. I am delighted that things that I considered useless are being sent to Africa or used by local charities .
Tracy has been very friendly and I have looked forward to her visits with real pleasure .
And by the way, don't worry about having to dispose of the stuff yourself , she takes everything away or arranges for it to be collected !!
I recommend her services wholeheartedly . You will enjoy the experience - and even more importantly - the results !! "
Mrs S, Hatfield
"Thanks to Tracy, I am enjoying living in my home again! The clutter has gone, and in its place, everything is clearer, more organised, and I feel happier too! It’s been a tough year emotionally for me on a personal level, but since Tracy helped me to de-clutter, it’s as if a weight has been lifted and I feel freer and calmer. De-cluttering was one of those jobs I kept putting off and found it difficult to know where to start. I had boxes of stuff that literally hadn’t been opened in years. Tracy helped me let go of things I no longer needed, but initially felt I didn’t want to part with, just in case I might want them one day! As well as motivating me to embark on what had seemed a daunting task, Tracy’s kindness and sensitivity enabled me to let go of items I found I was ready and able to part with, while keeping things I still felt attached to. Amazingly, thanks to Tracy’s positivity and efficiency, it became an enjoyable process, and especially satisfying once I could see we were making headway. I would thoroughly recommend Tracy if you feel you need help with de-cluttering. She will provide you with the tools and motivation to get you started and enable you to feel so much better once the clutter is gone." Ms B, Welwyn
“"With 3 children and no family help at all, it became a round of doing what was needed for the children then not having energy to sort the rest. I was ashamed of the state the house was in and almost cancelled at the last minute as was so embarrassed.
Tracy was immediately friendly and reassuring and not at all judgemental.She was sensitive and efficient and it made a huge difference having her guidance and encouragement.
She made suggestions on changing the desk layout and now the children have space to do their homework and I have space for a cup of tea and a candle to relax with!
I was feeling overwhelmed but now things are clearer. I know that alone I would barely have achieved a tenth of what we did together." Mrs B, St Albans
"I would never have believed what I could achieve wth Tracy’s help in just 4 hours! The jumble in my office has disappeared and the space feels clear, tranquil and well-organised. Tracy has developed an intelligent system that makes it so much easier to sort and let go of what is no longer needed. Her approach is very respectful and yet also decisive and goal-orientated. It feels great to have reclaimed the space and have things organised in a way that supports my work and is good for my wellbeing."
Mrs A, Kings Langley
"Thank you so much for coming to help me sort out my shed today. It was so helpful of you to show me how to sell my unwanted items on Gumtree. I was thrilled to get the price I wanted within a day! The items we put on the recycling site went to new homes really quickly too and now I can get in and out of the shed to get to what I want." Mrs P, St Albans
"I had spent 2 years trying to make the flat look homely and our spare room was always the 'dumping ground'. I decided to reclaim the room as a surprise 'man cave' for my Fiance and asked Tracy for help. She organised everything in a way that made the room seem bigger and make the most out of a smaller space. She was very professional and got the job done quickly. Now we never close the door to our spare room as we like to show it off! I'd recommend her to anyone struggling to get rid of their 'dumping ground' Ms A, Hatfield
"Many thanks for your help to clear the kitchen of my junk yesterday (and for the useful i pad lesson too)! Your help was greatly appreciated and the clearance would probably have been delayed forever without it! " Mr. M, St Albans
"Working with Tracy was a real pleasure as it was so efficient. It showed me how fear of letting go of things stopped me from getting rid of many unused and unusable items whilst I desperately needed more space in my house. Tracy's coaching skills helped me to let go of things and see how the clutter de-energised me. Not only was I motivated during our sessions but after Tracy left I could carry on myself. With much less stuff around me to deal with I find I can do more everyday, so the exciting future projects that I had put on hold will happen very soon now! Tracy's services have made a huge difference. A great result!"
