Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Appello is a trusted and caring company that is here to assist older independent people when they decide to downsize.

It is important to us to work alongside our clients and their families to assist with reducing the physical and emotional stress of moving house.

We are available to co-ordinate everything from a partial move right through to co-ordinating an entire move all while working at a relaxed pace.

We can arrange the sale of any excess furniture items and ensure there is a maximum return to our clients by not taking a commission on the sale of any goods.

We can also arrange for items to be sent to family and friends as well as ensuring any excess items are donated to any nominated charities.
Just the thought of downsizing and all that goes with it was totally overwhelming until Jo came to my rescue. Thanks to her wonderful organisational skills and attention to detail, I was able to walk away from my three bedroom home and into a serviced apartment which Jo had set up for me.

Although highly efficient and thorough, Jo was never bossy, respecting my independence and making sure that I was involved in any decision making. Jo understands the needs of people in my situation with no family nearby to help.

Always positive, Jo takes obvious pleasure in her work. She’s a breath of fresh air and I’ve loved my dealings with her.

Using Jo from Appello made our move into a retirement villa absolutely stress free. She is a very competent person who helped us to arrange all of the services we required. The services Jo recommended were faultless and she thought of every minute detail which included pointing us in the right direction to gain legal advice.

We could not have moved out of our home of more than 25 years without the assistance of Jo. The thought of shifting was overwhelming and we didn’t quite know where to start. Jo was respectful and gave gentle direction around the process of downsizing our belongings so that we were taking the important items that helped us to feel at home in our new surroundings.

Jo’s assistance on the day we moved into our villa was invaluable. She worked hard to ensure we were set up for our first night and even made sure our bed was made ready for us to fall into at the end of the day!

I would 110% recommend using Jo from Appello when deciding to shift. I would also like to stress that any age qualifies for this service and it was money very well spent for peace of mind at what can be an emotional and stressful time.
