Losing someone you love is a terrifying experience in itself! But you’ll have to get over the loss with time. And while you are recovering from the loss, there’s so much to look into at the immediate moment. You’ll have bundles of responsibilities and duties to take care of after your relative dies. And this includes sorting out their personal belongings and managing everything they left behind – immaculately.
Deceased Furniture Removal — Your Complete Guideline!
Many properties left by the deceased are peppered with valuables. Alongside this, there shall be a lot of waste too. Separating the keepsakes from the waste can be a daunting task. That’s when Tim and Tina managing deceased estates in Melbourne come to help you out of this tricky situation. They are experienced and understanding in such delicate matters and know exactly how to clear a deceased’s property on your behalf. They are sympathetic, kind yet practical with long-term vision. And when you’ve been left only with the furniture in this estate, you can follow the below guide to managing it easily and efficiently.
- Organise and sort the furniture — There’s a house full of furniture and you are left to deal with it yourself. So, start with sorting and organising them. You can arrange them and sort them according to their size and condition and then decide what to do with them.
- The furniture you desire to keep — Your grandfather’s rocking chair that impresses you at the first sight, or the leather lounge you always had your eyes on, or the Victorian writing desk that evokes memories and nostalgia — now is the time to decide which furniture you want to keep for yourself. Make a list of such items. If you think any of them may need some repair, polishing or cleaning, keep those separately. And then you can concentrate on the furniture that’s left.
- Furniture to sell — Your relative’s wardrobe may be too large for your room. Or you’ve just bought yourself a new dining table and don’t want the one at the deceased’s property, no matter how grand. Or if you are only comfortable in your own bed. In such conditions sell the furniture that’s in good condition and get some money out of it. It’s upon you if you want to auction it for competitive rates or simply sell it through an agent.
- Donate some furniture—It’s natural to have some items in the house that’s not of any use to you. And you know you won’t even get good money for them. Or maybe they are excellent, but you don’t desire the cash and simply want to do a good deed on behalf of your deceased family member and donate it. Contact a good NGO in this case and send these items for charity. You can also directly send them off to some old age or children’s home where you think this furniture would serve its purpose well and benefit others.
A deceased property may have innumerable things in it. But the furniture is often a handful. That is why you should deal with the furniture first before you start off with the other items; it would help you clear everything else easily and rapidly.
