Search The Property

Clearing a property yourself can be a very emotional, stressful and physical task especially if you are clearing the property of a close relative or friend.

Sorting through the belongings of a loved one can be a very emotional process of which I'm sure you are aware, every item in the property of a close relative will hold a memory and have some kind of emotional attachment.

This stress and emotion can be magnified especially if you only have a limited amount time to complete the task, so I have tried to supply as much information as possible on this site, if nothing else you should start with the information on this page, this is a must.

(Covid - 19)

We are currently operating within UK Government Guidelines regarding social distancing but I can still supply a quotation and we can still clear your property, I can collect the keys from you, you can post them to me, you can leave them at the property in a safe place, I will asses the clearance and provide a written quote, then if you want to go ahead I can repeat the process for the clearance.

Search The Property

Search The Property Thoroughly

Search The Property

This may seem a little extreme but we have all seen the police reality TV program's of Police searching a property during a raid, but there is a method here, contrary to popular belief although they do make some mess they try to do it as efficiently as possible without disturbing the area too much.

This is because if they do find any sign's of illegal activity during the search the area then becomes a crime scene and they will need to gather as much evidence as possible, if they just turn everything upside down they may miss or loose important information and evidence.

Avoid Creating Chaos

Avoid Chaos

And the same thing applies to any house clearance not just do it yourself house clearance, get the family together and take time to search your property as efficiently as you can putting to one side any important paperwork or valuables but without creating chaos.

This gives you the chance to start to prioritise the important things right from the get go before you even think about how to dispose of the rest off the contents, remove any valuables, important paperwork and personal items you couldn't bear to loose, pop them in your car and take them home.
