“Good Things Come To Those Who Wait!” – Guinness Slogan Proves Right in House Clearance

Guinness-furness house-clearance

This month, the heirs to the Guinness brand, auctioned off the contents of their Georgian property, Furness House, which was built in 1740.  The auction was held at Killashee House Hotel due to the house currently being for sale.  Patrick and Louise Guinness (Patrick being thedirect descendent) are the seventh generation, post Arthur Guinness, when they bought Furness House in 1994.  21 years later, the couples have decided to downsize their house and get rid of many of its valuable contentsby having a house clearance sale, since the last of their four children left home.  Many of the items being sold are Guinness and Co. memorabilia.  Items like a rare pair of metal-bound stout barrels which were inscribed with the company name made €2,300 and a set of coloured caricature prints entitled The Gentle Art of Making Guinness sold for €1,600.  Though the biggest surprise of the day during the house clearance auction was the success of an Edwardian carved and hand painted rocking horse.  It was estimated to fetch between €800 and €1,200 but sold for a whopping €6,600!

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!!
