How Much Does House Clearance Cost

The average cost of a full house clearance will depend on the amount of contents to be cleared, but as an example to clear and transport for recycling the full contents of your standard 3 bedroom home will normally take 3 personnel around 8 hrs work and cost on average £400 - £800.

The higher end of this price range if there are attics, sheds and garages to clear along with stair lifts and carpets, and the lower end of the price range if its just the larger items of furniture without all the clothing, bedding and general clutter etc, if there are resalable items in the property then these can be used to offset the cost of a clearance, below I have explained the costs involved in clearing a house.

But unlike the council recycling centers where you have different sections for different types of recycling all in the same place, commercial recycling centers are normally specific to one type of recycling and located miles apart.

Price Of A Full House Clearance

Our Competitors

Please be aware that most house clearance companies quote by using a full or part load method, this method classes all waste as general waste which is more expensive to recycle.

This results in much higher charges, please compare the size of our vehicles to other companies before excepting an estimate using a full or part load calculation.

Large House Clearance Van

Vehicle Size

Also this method does not take into consideration the size of vehicle they use from old Tesco delivery vans to caged tippers the range of vehicles used can vary quite considerably.

If another company estimates a clearance as 1 load and then it turns out to be 2 you will end up paying double the estimated price, you could get caught out with this method .

Charges For House Clearance

Our Vehicles

Not all vehicles have the same size cargo compartment, our vehicles are 6.5 tonne HGV box vans we can carry more volume than 4 large builders skips on just one of our vehicles.

This is why we prefer to view the property first so we can take into consideration any resale value, the transportation, recycling and labour costs before we supply a quotation.

N.A.C Property Clearance

"Professional from start to finish and heaven sent to help us through a very traumatic house clearance, contents were cleared methodically and at great speed and safe in knowledge that contents were ethically disposed of, the process was dealt with sensitivity, respect and humour at a very sad emotional time and after having two other "dodgy" quotes - finding NAC clearance was the answer to our prayers, I truly thank Mark and his team at NAC for giving us peace of mind, . . . ."

N.A.C Property Clearance

"Not just a man with a van but but a very professional service all staff appropriately dressed in company logoed uniform and fully aware of H & S regulations. They worked methodically through the property bagging and sorting all the different materials as they went along. Although the property had been searched before hand I was handed any items which they thought of value as they came across them (fallen behind cupboards, under beds etc). Honesty is obviously part of their policy, . . . ."
