5 ways to ‘gracefully’ downsize

It doesn’t matter whether you’re moving around the corner or making a substantial sea change, moving can still be stressful. Grace have got you covered throughout your entire shifting system, from organising and cleaning to loading and unloading.

Downsizing a home can be a time of great anxiety for anyone who loves their belongings but hates living in clutter. If you’re retired, empty nesters or moving from a suburban home to a city apartment you’ll be looking to go smaller. The challenge of creating a new living space with limited room for furniture, accessories, clothes and collectibles can be challenging so we’ve put together 5 ways that our local team can help you downsize.
