About Ideal Living

A friend wanted to downsize their home; with no family in the UK, I offered to help. Within five weeks the house was cleared of years of clutter, her son’s  items were stored and  minor maintenance issues repaired. The sold sign went up seven weeks’ later!  At that moment I realized that I could help people get to their own Ideal Living space . 

Our Mission

We know about your hectic schedule. We know that  moving house is even more stressful. At Ideal Living our goal is to help you  get from where you have been to where you are going as seamlessly as possible.  We tailor each project to your needs and lifestyle. No job is too big or too small and we look at every one as an opportunity to help you reach your goal. 

Why Hire Ideal Living ?

Moving house is not just a case of packing boxes and moving out. There are points in life, such as bereavement or a family up-sizing, when it is just too difficult to cope with the idea of packing up an entire life.  Ideal Living can help you through, what can be, an emotional roller-coaster. We can provide an objective impartial opinion with practical solutions for moving house from start to finish!

Anne had a very positive effect upon a partly disabled client with two children. Social Services asked her  to clear her home of unnecessary furniture and junk.

Working tirelessly with the client, Anne was successful in achieving this goal  within a month. Being tactful, supportive and helping with decisions so enabling the client to do what she could not have done by herself. The client is continuing on the beneficial course that Anne set up.

I highly recommend Anne as someone who can deal with fragile or difficult cases with delicacy and skill.
