Where do people go wrong with their House Clearance?


Tom Pickering, the owner of Clearance and Clean Up, is asked certain questions extremely frequently.  So we thought, what better than writing an article in an attempt to answer those questions for you.  We don’t want moving house or house clearances to be as daunting as people often think they are.  They key to everything is to be as organised as is humanly possible!

In a nutshell, if you are disorganised (don’t know where anything is, where anything is going, don’t know what you do or don’t want to keep, haven’t emptied any cupboards, wardrobes etc., haven’t given any clear instructions to the clearance team before they arrive, haven’t asked neighbours for a access permission or cleared a route for the clearance team) then this will lead to clearance team having to be on site for much longer, which in return will, without doubt cost you more money!  So, if you are wanting to be economical, be organised!

How can our House Clearance go smoothly and be economical?

  • Get yourself organised – this is the singularly most important point for a smooth, successful and the most economical house clearancepossible for everybody involved.
  • By removing the items that you know you definitely want to keep enable the house clearance team to get their job done with minimum fuss or confusion.
  • Any reusable items can be given to your family and friends, though I’m sure they will only be particularly appreciative if they are in a good condition – it’s a nice way to recycle your used items without throwing them away, if you just don’t have the space or don’t need them yourself any more.
  • Bag up any clothing, towels and bedding BEFORE we arrive! By doing this it can really speed up the house clearance process, reducing the length of time that we are on site for, dramatically.
  • Empty your cupboards on to the side eg. In the kitchen/ bathroom.
  • Ask your neighbours for permission, regarding parking and pedestrian access.
  • Make sure there is clear access for the clearance team to manoeuvre and for the vans, too – the quicker and it is easier it is for us, the more cost effective it is for you and obviously we want to avoid damaging anything or obtaining any injuries from tripping over anything etc.
  • If you are able to do anything to aid your own move, in advance, such as prepare, pack up or move certain items, the less time we will spend in your property and therefore the cheaper your house clearancewill be. The longer it takes us, the more expensive it will be for you.

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.
