CASE STUDY: Valuing What Is Left.

We understand that the loss of a loved one can be tough. Bereaving a family member can always be difficult. Having to sort through everything they left behind can be too much to bear. We understand what you are going through and we can lighten the load and help you with home organisation.

A client had instructed me who had decided to return to her home county and into a retirement apartment; my client’s only daughter had died.

My client’s home was a three-bedroom terrace and had already started to label items she knew would either be going with her, were for donation, or gifts for others.

When I came across the box of bric-a-brac my client had said that it “can all just go” without even looking into the box.

There were items that the customer had inherited some years’ earlier and had decided to donate to charity. Before taking them away, I checked the box and suggested having the items valued for I had identified some pottery that I thought have some value. Following valuation, I discussed the matter with my client who agreed they could go to the next auction. The pottery sold for more than £350.

The client was pleased that I had been curious enough about the contents of the box that she had left in a cupboard for nine years!
