In September 2015, our Mother passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. She lived in a 6000 sq.foot executive home in Courtenay. Being a world traveler, and educator, her home was absolutely filled to the brim. We were filled with stress, worry and anxiety, as to how we would handle such a massive estate sale. After 5 months of trying to determine what to do, we went with VIEL.
All I can say is THANK HEAVEN for Wayne Mossman, and his team with Vancouver Island Estate Liquidators!! I honestly thought it was never going to be possible to get through it all!
Wayne is 100% professional, compassionate, honest, and knowledgeable in dealing with so many unique and special treasures. He was very patient and kind with us, at a very difficult time.
The pre-pricing of everything, and then the 3-day sale went as smooth as ever. I again..never thought it would have been possible. He has a wonderful sense of humour, deals with customers so perfectly, that it actually turns out to be a fun, pleasant time…instead of the sadness I had predicted. We made more money than we had ever thought, and felt such a enormous sense of relief that our Mother’s beautiful things, will now be treasured in a new home.
His very hard work ethic amazed us!! He never stopped for a minute, and his team as well worked endlessly to make sure all would be done in the 3 days that he promised it would be. After the sale was over, they cleared up all that was left to donate to their wonderful charity ‘Workability’ a Non Profit Organization. It felt good to know the remaining items would go to such a great place. Not only that, but they vacuumed, and left the house cleared, not leaving one thing to deal with.
Never, ever hesitate to contact Wayne and his company. We will be forever grateful to them, and we will recommend them to all that need such a service!
