It was worth every penny! The house went from looking chaotic to tidy, just by removing so much unneeded 'stuff'. It is so good to know that the toxic materials are correctly disposed of, and that good stuff is donated to good organizations. Stacy was extremely efficient and didn't let us become bogged down. Thank you again for your continued help!”
Miriam, Ann Arbor
“When my mother passed away, we needed to quickly get my father a new place to live since he couldn’t take care of himself. Between mourning the loss of my mother, finding a new home and selling his existing home it was a stressful situation. It was overwhelming to even think of clearing out over 30 years of stuff in their existing home get it ready to sell. That’s when Betty Brigade came to our rescue. Within two days, they were able to sort years of stuff, coordinate charity donation pickup, and arrange for the delivery and hauling away of a dumpster. What a relief it was to have this handled so efficiently in a short period of time.”
