Our story

A few years ago my mother faced the challenge of moving from her townhouse in London to a smaller house in Henley on Thames.

Going through 35 years of accumulated possessions, working out what to keep and how to deal with the rest seemed an overwhelming task. Despite help from family and friends, it was physically and emotionally exhausting. I saw at first hand the strain it put on my mother and realised how much difference a few well-trained, empathetic pairs of hands with the right equipment could make to someone in my mother’s situation, or to anyone moving house or re-assessing their possessions.

And so, Good Sorts was born.
