Free House Clearance
Is there such thing as a free house clearance I here you ask, honestly I would have to say no because if a company offers a free house clearance then who is paying their fee, it certainly won't be them doing the clearance out of the kindness of their heart so it must be you who's paying one way or another.
The only way a house clearance company could clear a property for free would be if value of the contents of your property outweigh any costs involved in clearing it which to be honest is very unlikely, we are a professional house clearance company covering the whole of South Wales and clear houses every day of the week.
Unfortunately most second hand furniture and general household items have a relatively low value in the current economic climate, this is due to cheap mass production and the current availability of these items through online markets such as Facebook, Ebay and Gumtree along with the high street charity shops.
Beware Of Free House Clearances
Second Hand In General
Over the last few years in every town there have been a surge of charity shops opening up on the high street all selling the same type of items and all within a few hundred yards of each other.
The combination of the charity shops, cheap mass production and online markets has resulted in an abundance of good quality second hand furniture being available at very low prices.
Check The Property
If you clear all the junk and general clutter from the property and have only good quality salable items left then yes it is possible that a house clearance company could clear the property for free.
Their costs would be covered by the sale of these items, although in reality you would still be paying, but if you have cleared all the junk yourself why not try and sell the salable items yourself.
But if your house is full of old furniture and junk that has low or no value I would be highly suspicious of any company who offer a free house clearance service, after all who would be paying their fee.
if they are offering you a free house clearance then they are obviously seeing something of value in the property that you have missed, so my advice would be to check then check again.
