Despite the name, downsizing doesn’t have to be a downer.
People have many reasons for downsizing – space, money, and health are often major factors. It’s not uncommon for people to downsize multiple times over their lifetime as they transition through stages – for example, many parents move to a smaller space once their kids leave the nest.
We like to think of downsizing as rightsizing – it’s a positive spin on the subject, but it’s also true! You see, the thing about downsizing is that it’s meant to be about you, and about making your new space as comfortable and functional as you can get it.
You will need to make choices about your essential items, the things you can’t live without – we’ve talked about how to do that before. But once those practical decisions are made, you can and should take the things that please you most. This is your personal space, and having the things that you want matters (even if someone else might make different choices). You may find it helpful to create a floor plan when making these decisions.
Rightsizing is not about keeping things because other people think you should have, or getting rid of things just to purge. It’s about having the stuff that you need, and the stuff you want, in your new home.
This is why we like to call it rightsizing – you’re making your new home right for you!
What your friends Say
The team knew where to park and the layout of both buildings – again good research. And although I was not present for the off loading it went smoothly as well. All of the team showed expertise and an understanding of the complexities of dealing with elderly people and their families.
We would definitely recommend them!
This in my opinion is service the way it’s supposed to be. I love you all thank you so so much
I would definitely recommend Darling Solutions for your moving needs.
Kelly's team displayed the same mindfulness, caring and compassion on the job as she did during the initial consult. We are grateful to your company for helping us through this. Thank you
I highly recommend Darling Solutions to anyone.
Again, we could not have done it without them! From decluttering and packing our condo to moving and setting us up in our new home, every member of the team was hardworking, helpful, warm and extremely competent. Their attention to detail in setting up our new place was remarkable. Honourable mention to the whole team: Kelly, Shawn, Ian, Phyllis, Barb M., Barb Y. Jack, Susan, Glen and Paul. Barb M., our team leader, and Ruth, in the office, were particularly good at calming a nervous client.
We recommend Darling Solutions without reservation. We can’t thank them enough.

Adding COVID into the mix it was almost paralysing to think about. After a recommendation to Contact Darling most of that fear went away.
Professional, competent and most importantly Caring.
They made this move so smooth for my wife and her parents.
On moving day they left their old home and at the end of the day arrived in a new home with all their belongings unpacked and arranged. Completely stress and back pain free. The next day Darling took care of removing items targeted for donation and all remaining items for waste.
I cannot recommend this service enough.
Thank you so much.
Frankly thank-you does not even cover it. Your team, led by Julie, was absolutely incredible from the first moment we met down to the beautiful new plant for my mom and our goodbyes at the door.
They were so organized, thoughtful, friendly and polite. It was a sincere pleasure to work with all of them. I enjoyed the experience so much I am almost sad that the move is finished but happy that we will meet again when my parents are ready to hang their many pictures.
Again, I am in awe and am telling anyone with ears about Darling Solutions so they will hopefully in turn tell their friends and family.
Very best regards and please send our thanks once again to your team.
