"Your Children Don't Want Your Coffee Mugs"

That’s how Stephen Landis of AskLandis started his presentation to a group of prospective new home owners.  He specializes in helping folks such as ourselves “De-clutter” our not-so-precious belongings prior to moving into our new home.

AskLandis offers a complete package deal that includes going through your “stuff” with you to determine what to keep, what to take for consignment selling, what to shred, what to donate, and what to send to the scrap pile.

After a thorough review of everything and prior to moving day, Stephen and Brandon came to the house to label everything, (keep, sell, donate, shred, and trash).  They arranged for the movers (Mover Dudes) to pick up our furniture and things for moving.  We had used Mover Dudes in the past, they came and packed us up and moved us the 10 mile trip in a day.

Then Stephen and Brandon performed their de-clutter tasks.  All furniture and things for selling were packed up for transfer to their Charlottesville facility, the shredding material was taken for secure disposal (a free service AskLandis offers to clients) and the trash disposed of and best of all, they even swept up after!

It is not an inexpensive proposition but for the peace of mind and relief of not having to do everything ourselves made it well worthwhile and not knowing what to do with all of this "stuff",  is money well spent.

“De-clutter” is a nice way of saying downsizing, aka – getting rid of the crap we built up over the years.

If you’re planning on moving or just getting to the point of being overwhelmed by your stuff – give Stephen Landis a call.  It will make a difference.

Thank You for Caring

Hi Stephen,  Just wanted to send you a quick note to say how very pleased we all are with today’s move. Father is happily ensconced in his new apartment which is a blessing to all of us. Kevin and Daniel were so competent and thoughtful and we certainly appreciated EVERYTHING they did for us to make the move so much easier. Thank you so much for your attention to detail and your caring attitude. The services you provided were really helpful and we appreciate all that that you did for us from that first phone call to the completion of the job today.

Ours Was a Complicated Move

We have moved many times, sometimes with unpleasantness and difficulty.  

The team working with AskLandis could not have been more cooperative and pleasant. Ours was a complicated move, with some items to be given for consignment, some remaining in the home for the new owner, and some to be brought to our new home. Each phase was carried out efficiently with few glitches and with a decided effort to accommodate our needs. Stephen Landis even texted the day after the move to make sure we had a good night in our new place.

Our Realtor Had Seen a Presentation

My husband and I sold our big family home in the spring of 2017. We were at a loss as to how we would empty our home of 26 years of possessions. Our realtor had seen a presentation by AskLandis and was very impressed. She gladly recommended them to us.

Stephen and Brandon came to our home, inventoried everything, from complete rooms of furniture, large oriental carpets, all kitchenware-- everything from the biggest to the smallest. It was a quick and painless process and Stephen and Brandon were both friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They explained the process to us, came to our home on the scheduled date and removed all of what we wanted removed. Some of it was donated and some if it was sold through internet sites, auctions and warehouse sales. We received periodic checks for items sold, along with updated inventory lists.

I would highly recommend AskLandis. They take what can be an overwhelming process out of the homeowner's hands and simplify it.

Very Patient with Clients

Stephen and his crew were all very professional and very fast.  In two days they managed to declutter a house filled with a lifetime of not only good memories, but many things that needed to be thrown out, given away, sold, or stored until the house could be sold.  They will also be there to set up the new home.  It was wonderful having a single company who could do all of that.  There was no need to separately contact movers, storage companies, trash companies, donation companies, and auctioneers.  We are still in the midst of the process but so far so good.  He is also very patient with clients who are struggling to come to terms with a big change in their life, and even those who may be having memory issues.

No Questions No Objections

In reviewing the whole process of moving and downsizing, the thing that stands out to me the most was how quickly everything happened and how little time we had to get so many things arranged and settled.  That's where your services were so helpful -- you and your crew came in and quickly did what we needed done, with no questions or objections. 

Without your services I simply would not have been able to meet the deadlines we had.  I think you have found a real need in the market and have figured out how to meet it.  I hope your business prospers.

A Job Well Done

I want to thank you for the wonderful, efficient, professional, honest job you did for us. I think you told us that we would get our money's worth, or words to that effect, and we certainly did. It was worth every penny to get everything done, from taking down shelves my uncle had installed to vacuuming carpets and sweeping floors after everything was out of the house. If you ever move to MA, let us know and we will help spread the word.
