House Clearance Drops a Bomb Shell

grenade house clearance sheffieldRisbury, a small village not normally known for interruptions, near Leominster, but on Thursday (10th September), this sleepy village was strangely interrupted. A house clearance team were undergoing a house clearance in Risbury when they found a World War II grenade. An area of Risbury was cordoned off when the grenade was cited amidst belongings in the middle of the house clearance and Police were summoned immediately to the address.  A 25 metre radius around the house was taped off henceforth. Bomb disposal experts from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) attended the scene extremely promptly and assessed the bomb.   Luckily, for this little village, the bomb assessment found the bomb not to be live and EOD announced that the grenade was empty. This story could have had such a different ending if the bomb had not been so, with dramatic impact for both the house owners and indeed this little village. But it was all thanks to the house clearance team who knew exactly what to do when they spotted this potential danger.

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!!
