Care, Compassion and House Clearances

The Martlets is a Hospice in Hove.  Hospices can have a rather morbid reputation but not the Martlets – their ethos is to help people live well.  Not everyone who comes to the Martlets is going to die imminently but can live long and fulfilled lives but need the help of places like the Martlets to do so.  The chief executive, Imelda Glackin is emphasising exactly what the Martlets is all about as they celebrate their 18th birthday.

What does the Martlets offer?

In the bright and airy, modern building, a dedicated and devoted team of staff and volunteers work to make sure their patients have everything they need.  It is a long way from the stuffy, regime of a hospital which many of the patients have been subjected to and there is even a resident cat, Misty, who can put a smile on anyones face.

Funding to Keep The Martlets Alive

The Martlets is not part of the NHS so receives a very small amount of government funding.  So in order to survive they need to raise £11,000 per day to raise the £5.4m a year running costs, which includes being able to pay the 225 staff.  To do this, the Martlets have all sorts of fundraising events, including:

The Martlets and House Clearance

The Martlets offer their own house clearance service where they offer to clear and clean properties of any size and either partially or fully empty and clean the property.  They pack and remove all items which they know are saleable, including white goods, which they are able to sell in their Martlets shops.  Anything which is not saleable is recycled and anything which needs specialist disposal is a chargeable service, such as chemicals or paints.

The cost for this service is dependent on the size of the property in question and whether a full or partial clear and clean has been requested.  All of the profit from the items sold from the house clearances go to the Martlets Hospice itself, so that the incredible staff there can continue to use their “CARE, COMPASSION AND SUPPORT” to provide for their patients for the rest of their lives.

I needed my garage cleaning and found these guys on the internet. It was a great service from beginning to end. Tom who answered the phone was very polite and accommodating to my needs. I work shifts so I explained to Tom that it needed the rubbish collecting after 11 and before 1 due to my shift and sleep patterns! We arranged a time off 11.30, the lads who did the job turned up on time as agreed and were polite. They were real hard workers and cleared the garage in no time at all. All in it was a really professional and efficient service. I would definitely use them again and recommend to friends.

Highly recommended. Having been let down by Veolia, who wouldn’t pick up the rubbish, supposedly because of access to my property, I was delighted that it was no problem for this company. Tom very trustworthy and straightforward on the phone. They did exactly what they said they would do and for a very fair price too.

These guys were brilliant. They were very fast and efficient at replying to my initial query, quoting and carrying out the job (garage clear out ready for house move). I can’t really say if their prices are comparable to others as I’ve not used a company for this before but I thought they were reasonable.

Had these guys clear an outbuilding and despite them charging per hour, they were like machines and got the job done in no time! Cheaper than we have had previously - by a marginal amount granted, but their service was far superior, so all in all very competitive! Turned up exactly when arranged, extremely pleased with them and would DEFINITELY use again!!
