What people have to say about our services
We would like to record our appreciation for the role Moving On played in our recent decision to ‘Move On’. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Roy and Barbara and their team. From their introduction to us, the advertising of our goods for sale, from the preparation for the sale and the sale itself ; they were superb. Their attention to detail was astonishing. Our decision to move back to the UK after 12 years of running a small Guest House in George, was so much more manageable with their assistance.

We will definitely recommend you to family and friends who may have need of your services.

Kindest Regards, Mike and Anne. May 2017
I wish to thank you sincerely for the brilliant,professional and pleasant way you handled my moving on sale on 8 April 2017. Your dedicated service from beginning to end was remarkable. I had a fantastic time at the sale and it was a great financial success .
Dear Nel, Just wanted to say thank you, for helping me with the mammoth task of selling off the last of my shop stock. You managed the impossible - selling hundreds of items within tight time constraints. Couldn't have done it without you. Will happily recommend you to anyone 'moving on'! Take care and have a wonderful week.
Sharon, Pretoria, April 2017
Kimberley really knows what she is doing. She helped me sell my furniture and small items. She gives good advice because she knows the market and she is really on the ball when the sale starts. Communicating with me and the clients and making it happen- money in the bank and unwanted items sold and taken away.
It was also a pleasure dealing with the clients in my home. I was apprehensive about that but I found everyone that came through 'Moving On' site to be very nice and genuine people.

December 2016 Dear Carla & Cecile, Thank you for organizing the sale of our household contents - you took a huge amount of stress and worry off of us.

March 2016 Dear Kimberley and Sam, As all the sales are now complete and we have indeed moved on, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your outstanding professionalism and kindest assistance in handling the picture taking, pricing and pre sale screening of the myriad of items we had to sell. Your constant follow up and update to your website was much appreciated. You showed a huge amount of patience and compassion as we went through the stress of moving. What seemed an absolute daunting task to us you effortlessly turned it into a smooth and successful transaction. We have since recommended your services to family and will continue to recommend your services in our immediate circle of influence.We look forward to supporting your future sales as we look out for items we need for new spaces. Wishing you and your team all success....

November 2014 Dear Kimberley, I would absolutely use you again if I had to move and of course I will recommend you to any and everyone, you made my life so much easier. Not only are you calm and re-assuring, but you were tough when you had to be, to get us good prices. You saved us endless people traipsing through our house (security issues), and got the sale done in 2 hours, wow.I will definitely follow moving on and hopefully attend some of your sales in the future.I wish you every success with your business and believe that you will grow from strength to strength.
Kind Regards. Lyn

I just want to send a Big Thank you to Moving On, and in particular Lindy.
I have just had 2 sales with her since December, and was so impressed and satisfied with how she conducts herself, the business and the payments. She really is so well organised and on-the-ball, and she has been so helpful with so many different aspects - from selling my goods to donations.I will most definitely be recommending Moving On to others - far and wide - and thumbs up to you guys for offering such a great service !
Many thanks and kind regards, Angela.
Thank you for your visit this morning and for your help in defusing the situation. Earlier my wife had a virtual meltdown, declaring that she would not be able to handle having a sale before January. You got things back on the rails again and it was good to get everything catalogued, priced and photographed. We appreciate your professional and helpful assistance and look forward to a successful sale.
Kind regards, Dick
We just want to thank you again for your help and wonderful service. It was great meeting you and we wish you all the best with your business(I know it must get crazy busy for you at times and you need a lot of patience too!) but well done on such an amazing idea!! My in-laws will probably be in touch with you in the new year and if we have any other things we may still need to sell off we will definitely be in touch with you.
Keep well! Warm Regards, Elsjé and Fred (Hout Bay)
I heard about Moving On from a relative who is also setting up home. It sounded interesting so I thought I would give it a try and sign up for their weekly e-mail. It’s a pretty nifty system-they e-mail you on a Thursday to tell you which houses are selling their content that weekend. You can check out the pics and if you like anything, go along to the sale. It’s not an auction, so you just have to get there at the time it starts and pick what you like! There are some yucky things, but some real bargains too :-) How it works is that each person gets a lucky number (so there’s no incentive to get there super early!). One by one you go into the house and ‘buy’ whatever items you like. They usually are relatively well priced items and if you have a good eye, you can pick up some great finds.
We had a great experience at one of the Moving on Sales: exciting atmosphere, surprising stuff for sale. Went home with an outdoor diner set, 2 great chairs and the wired paper rhino I always wanted. Will definitely be back on another Sunday afternoon!
Hi Richard, hope you well! I've been to a couple of Moving on sales and think they are the best thing that ever was invented, thanks to you!
Thank you so much for organising yesterday's sale. You and your team did a sterling job and I'm sure you'll go from strength to strength.
Hi, Just wanted to say congratulations on how Moving On has grown!
We’ve found some of our favourite items at the sales, and for us as a young couple starting out we’ve been able to furnish our home at affordable prices with good quality items thanks to the valuable service you provide.
Wishing you further success!!

I am a subscriber for almost the last 10 months; am addicted to your newsletters and try not to lose out on my weekend excursion sales. I came through to Pinelands on Sunday and later the afternoon to Marina da Gama; I managed to get the most beautiful finest glasses and other glassware at Marina da G and it was nice to chat with the owners who are emigrating. I always meet great friends at your sales.
To Whom It May Concern
We recently contracted Moving On to help us sell the contents of our house in Durbanville. From my first interaction with Moving On, franchisee Kimberley was efficient, quick to respond and very professional.
I really appreciated her prompt response to my initial enquiry – within a week we’d met, taken photos of the items, arranged a sale date and agreed on the sale prices.
Her knowledge and expertise in terms of advising the pricing and current sales trends and the way in which she was always available to explain or handle any queries was also great.
The sale was well organised and well handled by Kimberley. We managed to sell most of the items, without the usual hassle of placing ads, negotiating prices, meeting with potential buyers etc.
The Moving On after sales service has also been excellent in that Kimberley has assisted in trying to sell the last few remaining items.
I would highly recommend Moving On to anyone wanting to sell their house contents – whether you are moving or simply needing to sell off some of your furniture.
Elli, Northern Suburbs, Cape Town
I contacted you a few weeks back and you gave me Ian's number
regarding a sale in Sunningdale, Cape Town. I am happy to say that we successfully completed our sale today and sold a lot of the items. We were very happy with the results and Ian ran the show like a champ - I would recommend his services to anybody.
Keep up the good work and thanks to you and Ian again!Regards.
"Thank you so much for handling the sale of goods in our home so efficiently and professionally, the day went so well and we were delighted with the great price you got for us on all the items sold. Well done on such a fantastic job and making the whole experience enjoyable and stress free. We will be recommending you to family and friends. Thanks again."

"It is but an hour or two that we said goodbye but I wished to write to say a huge thank you for all your help and advice for the sale from my home this morning. I am most impressed at the way everything goes and flabbergasted at the speed at which the gannets descend upon the property and within the hour almost everything is gone !!! Quite incredible!! I feel much better now and feel that the few small things that are left over we can easily dispatch to the local charity. Take care of you and once again, thank you very much for everything."
"Thank you. It was a job well done and we appreciate your approach and attitude. We wish you and your wife everything of the best for the future and will certainly be recommending your services to other people."
Lesley and John
I just wanted to say thank you so much for a great job on Saturday! my sale went really well! You even sold things like left over insecticides! My friends are all amazed and very interested to hear about your work !
"Thank you so much for all of your efforts to get rid of all of my unwanted goods. I really do appreciate your professional approach and would recommend your company to other people in the same boat as me. Once again, thank you."

"My parents had lived on a farm in Somerset West for nearly 30 years and wanted to retire and move to the coast. But they were stuck. Stuck with 30 years worth of things they didn't want or need anymore. I imagined it taking 30 years to move! Richard arrived and it took about 30min! Richard organized an amazing sale – there were lots of people informed and loads of people came. It was professional and I couldn't believe how quickly everything sold. His website is remarkable – people arrived clutching a print of his weekly mail, determined to buy a specific item and they had traveled far to be there. We sold everything! Even the things that we all thought nobody could possibly want or need! But people came wanting parts of things or a bargain on this or a beautiful yellow wood king size bed! So ‘Moving On' helped us pack up and move on. It's a great service!"
"I'd like to thank you for the great service you offer with Moving On, and for helping me sell the contents of my house that we no longer wanted. I was very happy with the way you conducted things and for being so pleasant to deal with, and I am recommending you to everyone. Well done on a great concept. Many thanks.
"I used 'Moving On' to sell the contents of my mother's home and the response we got from potential buyers was amazing, not to mention Richard's marketing , organisation and management of the 'event'. From our first meeting where we discussed the items we wanted to sell and photographed them for his website to the physical pricing of the items (the day prior to the sale) and the sale on the day, Richard remained professional and calm throughout the process. For those of you moving on and thinking about getting rid of your stuff, give Richard a bell, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the value of your things!"
