Simple 3 Step Guide to Clearing a House, from Clearance and Clean Up House Clearance Sheffield

house clearance sheffieldClearing a house for a move, after bereavement or following the relocation of a tenant can be a stressful and time consuming job. As experts in house clearance Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham and Barnsley, Clearance and Clean Up have put together a comprehensive list of things you can do that will make the process that much easier!


Depending on the volume of items that need to be organised and removed, it’s really important to allow enough time to do the job and ensure that you are not rushed in the process. Making a list of the rooms that need to be tackled can help, that way you will have a clear idea of what needs to be done and it will be far easier to allocate a timeframe to each section.

Valuables vs. Items to be Cleared

The next step is to go through the items that you want to keep, for example anything that is worth money or has sentimental value. You may be able sell some of your unwanted possessions or furniture on Ebay, Gumtree or Craigslist too.

Now you need to decide what you want to do with the items that are simply rubbish or that could possibly be recycled. There are several options available here depending on your budget and time constraints.  If you have a large vehicle, and plenty of time and energy, you may be able to take it to the local tip. There are disposal rates for some items however, so it’s best to look into these before you make a decision. Skips are an option, although some estimation will be required on your part in order to decide on the size of the skip that you will need.

Hiring a house clearance Sheffield company to clear the property is another option. They will be able to clear, load, and dispose of everything that you want to get rid of, and usually for a cost that will work out cheaper than a skip, and less hassle. House clearance Sheffield companies often charge by volume cleared and will also make the effort to recycle and donate where at all possible.

Take Care of Confidential Documents and Paperwork

If your house clearance Sheffield is after the death of a loved one, you need to make sure that any confidential documents are taken care of. If you’re not sure whether you need to keep certain documents then it is best to check with your solicitor. For those that are not needed, they should be disposed of in a responsible way, ideally shredded.

If it is you that is moving, you still need to make a conscious effort to take care of your confidential documents in much the same way. Bank statements, credit card receipts and health records should be filed and taken with you to your next property for safekeeping. Any that you no longer require should be disposed of, again shredding is ideal. It can be tempting to just throw them away in the stress of a move, but identity theft is on the rise and has become a growing problem in the UK, therefore precautions do need to be taken to ensure that you are not a victim of this.

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!!

Excellent service, quick and efficient nothing was too much trouble. Arrived on time professional and courteous. This was a house clearance after our tenant left the property in a disgusting state, the guys cleared everything saved us time in getting the property back on the market and money and effort in having a skip. Great job highly recommend.

I had no trouble booking a slot when I needed and the guys turned up exactly on time. They were cheerful, friendly, speedy and belpful. So much better than hiring a skip. Everything was gone within fifteen minutes. Would definitely use again and thoroughly recommend.
