Adam runs a great company! He came to the house to look at what needed to go, gave me a fair quote, and did the work quickly and efficiently.
Helpful Aunt

I especially appreciated the excellent communication – it was a complex job and Adam kept in touch via video and phone call to ensure he was taking the right things. Best ever was seeing the before and after photos he sent me, as I was away … it looked fantastic! The space was left neat and clean too. I recommend Divert with confidence.
