House Clearance 10 top tips

House clearance Sheffield advice by Tom Pickering the owner of South Yorkshire largest on demand rubbish removal and property clearance company and I’m going to give you my top 10 tips to make your clearance go as smoothly as possible and save you both time and money on the process.

  1. Take anything you are keeping out of the property or at very least put in 1 room in the corner and label do not remove this will save the clearance company time trying to decide what is staying and what is going and avoids any confusion.
  2. This isn’t a must but will save time and ultimatly save you money empty and bag up the kitchen cupboards or at the very least take the items out and put on the kitchen side this will save the clearance company time.
  3. Empty and bag up clothes again not a must but will save time and you money also gives you a chance to make sure you haven’t missed anything of value.
  4. Get a charity round this good for a few reasons you are donating items and a bonus is the more they take for free the less the house clearance company
    will charge as most companies price based on volume and time on site but don’t be disopointed when they take very little charities are inundated with stock and can be picky.
  5. When phoning to book your clearance have as much detail as possible to include , List of the large items cooker beds etc, Any access issues narrow lane etc , Details about basements or garages the better the detail the more accurate the price will be.
  6. Knowing whats required by this I mean house clearances can be done for many reason and the properties can be of any type weather its privately owned housing association council etc they all have different standards they want them back in so for instance if its privately owned is it going up for sale does it need cleaning and making presentable. If its a council house are the carpets to come up do the lights need changing back to standard fitments their is many questions to ask just cover your self by asking them what standard do you want the property to be handed over in.
  7. Time slots for booking your clearance this will all depend on the size of your clearance and the company will advise but I would recommend the first slot in the morning as this is normally more reliable as if they have jobs before you they could run over making them late to yours.
  8. Let the clearance company do their job once they are on site have a chat with them and leave them to it specially if its a full clearance and you have removed your items of value they will work faster ultimately saving you money if their was any problems they would have your number.
  9. On completion of the clearance walk round the property with a member of the clearance team making sure nothing has being missed sometime there is sneaky little cupboards etc that can be missed or hidden away so always check
  10. PAPERWORK PAPERWORK PAPERWORK this is so important make sure you are issued with the correct paperwork this should include a waste transfer note with the property address on the company name their address the Waste license number that can be checked online at the environment agency website. Make sure you are also issued with a receipt and if you are being charged VAT make sure there is a VAT number on the invoice their is no excuse these days for people not issuing paperwork wether it be straight after the job or via email on completion. cover yourself get the paperwork.

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.

Great experience with these guys. They came and cleared a load of rubble from my garden. The two lads who came were very polite and friendly, they cleared the rubble in very little time and I am very impressed with the job they've done.It was slightly more expensive than hiring a skip, but so much less hassle! Plus if I'd hired a skip I'd have had to do all the lifting and moving myself! Definitely worth the money, I will definitely use again and I would recommend to anybody.

Really impressed with the service I received today. The guys were polite, friendly and efficient and cleared everything really quickly, despite the heat. I now have a garden I can enjoy for the rest of the summer. I would highly recommend this company - far less trouble than hiring a skip and very good value for money.

Brilliant guys who came to clear up the bungalow of an elderly relative with dementia who had been a hoarder all her life. They worked quickly and were very polite. We used them 2 weeks running because of the amount of rubbish. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and would use again in the future.
