Dealing with a deceased estate can be time consuming, complex, emotionally challenging and – let’s face it – hard work. Often there are time pressures to get the property to market.

Move Managers is frequently called on to help to distribute furniture and personal items to family throughout the country or overseas, to sort, sell and donate other items and to prepare properties for sale.

The company, now into its fourth year of helping Waikato residents who are on the move, is credited with achieving excellent results quickly – often realising sales which offset costs such as home or garden maintenance, cleaning and rubbish removal.

The Waikato is simply New Zealand’s best business and lifestyle location, the council claims on Open Waikato’s economic overview page.

Do right by weeds

Sep 17th, 2014 | By

Spring’s a time for getting back into the garden to clear away unwanted weeds and prepare properties for the joys of summer.

But it’s also a time when those unwanted weeds can end up being dumped in inappropriate places, raising the risks of weeds spreading and causing a headache for other property owners.

“We appeal to Waikato people to make sure they do the right thing when they’re dumping weeds cleared away in spring,” says Waikato Regional Council biosecurity team leader Wendy Mead.

Move Managers has had several clients they haven’t met.

The company, now into its fourth year of helping Waikato residents who are on the move, has also had other clients its only briefly encountered before they’ve dashed to the airport for business trips, transfers or long planned holidays.
