My advice to anyone contemplating a relocation, would be, get someone to do the design & management work for you. Don't do it yourself."

"Our shift happened successfully over a weekend.  Diane labelled all our existing furniture.  We left everything in the care of Malcolm & Sumner, the moving company and our IT guy.  It was a successful move from our part."
