House Clearance In Brondesbury Park NW London
We were recently contacted by a lady client from Vancouver, Canada who had been recommended to us by an old customer and in need of a total house clearance of her uncles flat in Brondesbury Park near Kensal Rise North West London. The uncle had unfortunately fallen ill and was suffering from dementia so was no longer able to care for himself, and for this reason the rented apartment needed to cleared completely and handed back to the landlord. We were asked to clear not only the contents but the carpets and curtains.
It was brought to our attention by the niece that the gentleman concerned was a well known photographer for the Royal Family and during his hay day traveled around and photographed Princess Diana. This was very evident when we were removing papers and photographic material where we found numerous very high quality photographs of Princess Di and other members of the Royal Family. Further to this we were asked to find a home for over 20,000 high quality original photographic slides of varying subjects. There was also a large amount of professional camera equipment including Nikon SLR and digital models, a Hasselblad and an enormous 35mm Nikon lens stated to be the largest lens Nikon ever produced.
All Proceeds For A Good Cause
Sadly our client had a young brother who was due to have a major operation for a tumor on the brain and she needed to raise as much money as possible for the operation as well as money for the care home. So we were happy to get the large Nikon lens into auction with a reserve of £2000 along with a fine bronze clock at £600, and a leather chesterfield sofa and walnut dining table at £1000. The remainder of the house contents were cleared and a good allowance was made for the resalable items which reduced the final labour fee for the house clearance an rubbish disposal costs.
Two weeks after the house clearance the auctioneers handling the antique sales introduced me to a private collector who ended up buying the entire collection of photographic slides for a large sum of money. This was a wonderful outcome and the money went a long way towards the cost of surgery and care home fees. The client was extremely happy with the way things went and could not thank us enough.
