All advise is given in good faith and it is your decision whether or not to take this advice given. I take no responsibility for your actions and any consequences of these.
I cannot lift or move heavy items/furniture due to health and safety.
During sessions I am happy to undertake light cleaning which will assist with the decluttering and staging process but please note that I do not offer a cleaning service.

I am happy to recommend local suppliers and trades, however I will not be held responsible for their standard of work or for any loss or damage caused by the supplier.
I would encourage you to recycle and donate decluttered items as much as possible. I can suggest local charities who will delighted to receive goods and I can take some of these items for you after the session (up to 4 boxes/bags per session). I cannot take general waste to the local authority recycling centre but can help you load your own vehicle to do so.
