For most of us the family home is our biggest asset. When deciding to move once the kids have left, or when moving into aged care, many things must be taken into account, and downsizing can be one of the biggest personal projects you’ll ever undertake. However, it’s a necessary hurdle to overcome if you want to move somewhere more manageable, closer to the kids, warmer, or want to unlock the value of your property. It can be a daunting task, both physically and emotionally, and at some point almost everybody needs a hand. No matter what stage you’re up to, Canard Solutions is here to help

We can conduct a full inventory and valuation of your home contents, and then post it securely online so that you and you loved ones can easily peruse and select what you’d like to take with you to your new home, what is to go to the kids, and what is to go into storage. We can take care of the rest.

From there, we can source the best storage solution for you, pack everything, and organise the move so everything gets to its designated destination with the minimum of stress, mess, and fuss.

Deciding what to do with the items you and your loved ones don’t want to retain is where most people get stuck. Understanding not only where each item will sell best, but also taking into account the different fees and commissions, as well the haulage costs, is incredibly complicated and can end up costing a fortune. Canard Solutions can take care of it all. Items can achieve radically different prices depending on where they’re sold. This is especially true of selling antiques. Because we are not bound to any particular auction house, we can use multiple channels to get the best result for you. We are also able to pass on industry commission rates from some auction houses. By knowing the market, using multiple sales options, including online markets and direct sales to collectors and dealers in addition to auction houses, and planning moves to minimise haulage costs, we can ensure you get the best value from your property. For anything that will not sell, we will donate to a wide variety of charities, which not only ensures anything useful is found a new home, it also reduces tipping fees.

We can also manage the sale of your property, from organising cleaners and gardeners, to sourcing property stylists and real estate agents. Whatever you need help with, Canard Solutions is here.

Whether you just need help with the move, aren’t sure which auction house is best to sell your antiques, or want us to take care of the sale of your house, nothing is a problem.
