How House Clearance Works
We can clear your whole property from start to finish all within a few hours without you having to lift a finger if you require us to, but you could reduce the cost of your house clearance by taking anything you could realistically fit in your car either to a local charity shop or to your local council recycling center and recycle them for free.
This method can not only reduce the cost of a clearance it will also give you the opportunity to go through the property efficiently to ensure you have not overlooked any item of a personal or financial value, we can then give you a quotation to clear the larger bulky items of furniture etc.
But if this is not a realistic option for you then don't worry we can do everything, we do not require you to separate or bag any item's all we need you to do is search the property to ensure there are no items of value that you would like to keep and we can clear and recycle everything else for you.
How Our Service Works
Please Note: We are first and foremost a clearance company. We earn a living by providing the labour and transportation of everything in your property for resale or donation, recycling or disposal and not from the sale of its contents, we feel if there is money to be made from the contents of your property then it should be you and your family who benefit.
1. None of the contents have a value
In this case we will give you a quotation to clear your property which will include all recycling/disposal fees and our time, labour and transportation costs.
Example: The cost of clearing your property is £600 including the recycling/disposal costs at a licensed commercial recycling center, our time, labour and transportation costs = you pay us £600.
Please Note: Unlike charities, second hand or antique dealers who will only take the items with a resale value, we clear and dispose of legally anything and everything from your property all within a few hours.
2. Some of the contents have a value
In this case we would give a discount for the saleable items or will clear the property without charge depending on the value of the saleable items.
Example: The cost of clearing your property is £600 and the contents resale value = £250, you pay us £350 and we get the other £250 from an antique or second hand dealer.
Please Note: We do not sell items to the general public and we do not make money on the sale of your items. Any items we use to offset the cost of a clearance are sold to second hand or antique dealers for the same price as the discount we give.
3. Most of the contents have a value
In this case we will clear the property without charge or depending on the value of the saleable items make a payment to you on the day of the clearance in cash.
Example: The cost of clearing your property is £600 and the contents resale value = £800, we pay you £200 and we get the £800 from an antique or second hand dealer.
Please Note: The price we offer as a discount are roughly the same price you would get from a second hand dealer, you will always earn more money for your items by selling them yourself through sites like facebook, ebay or gumtree so why not give it a go.
