Mary works with Peggy, a lovely client who claims "Downsizing is not just for seniors and not just for moving… you can just let it go to gain space and free your mind!”

Watch how the Downsizing Solutions team gets the job done!

“I thought that I was looking for movers when I realized that what I really needed was downsizers and movers!

I looked up ‘downsizing’ and the first hit was Mary Dilly, the owner of Downsizing Solutions, talking about her full-service moving company on CHCH. I looked up the company website and it really resonated with me.

After moving my parents some time ago, I realized that you don’t have to wait until you are ‘old’ to consider downsizing and that you can dramatically reduce what your kids have to deal with if you downsize earlier.

Throughout the process, the team was terrific to work with."


"When it was time for me to “move house” from Canada to the USA, I had no idea how much stuff I had accumulated over the years!

Mary stepped in and took all the stress away. She enjoyed sorting, donating, recycling, and making the eventual “dump run” until my house was ready to be put on the market.

I had just what I wanted to take to the States with me. She even tore down the basement ceiling to save costs before the drywaller came in.

I don’t think I could have done it without her and I know I wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much without her skills, patience and sense of humour.”

"You and your team couldn't have done anything better at either end of the move. The Superintendent from our former condo said it was the best move out she had ever seen. She also commented on the fact that the efficiency and expertise of your team was evident.

When we arrived at Pearl and Pine, the unit was set up beyond our expectation. Even the pictures on the walls were very well located. In 60 years of marriage, we have moved more than 20 times and this is the best move we have ever had.

Leigh-Anne, specifically, was amazing to work with. The staff here have made us feel so welcome. We are very impressed with the Executive Director, Shawna. The dining room staff and food is outstanding. We felt like this was our home the minute we arrived here.

Thank you so much. We couldn't have done this without you."

“The task that we gave Mary/Downsizing Solutions was to pack up a house that had been lived in since 1965.
Mary and her team had it done in 3 days with lots of fun and laughter. We could never have done it without your excellent service through all the stages. We will highly recommend you.
Feel free to give our contact information to anyone for a referral!"

“The suite looks great. We are really happy with it. We love your vision. It was so great working with you and your team. You are all lovely ladies. I am so pleased. Your movers were great also. You had so much to do and you made short work of it. This is fabulous. We are amazed by what you did. It is so beautiful how you put everything together. I would never have thought of putting the suite together like you did. I never thought it could look as nice as this! I am happy 100%!!!”
