Declutter The Easy Way

Collecting things is largely a part of human nature. The idea that something might be useful in the future is a commonly held point of view for many. This is usually evident in our homes, which can harbour decades worth of stored possessions. The inevitable result of this is clutter. Here at Property Clearance, we specialise in decluttering homes. We have worked with many families to categorise and dispose of items that have gathered in the homes of their loved ones. Usually, clients come to us when they are downsizing from a large family home, to something more manageable. In other cases, we are approached by clients who are moving into assisted living arrangements. As a part of our declutter service, we identify items of value and return them to owners, or sell on the owner's behalf. We can also recycle, dispose of or even donate unwanted items.

Decluttering Tips: What Property Clearance Can Offer You

Here at Property Clearance, we aim to provide our clients with a clear and supportive approach to decluttering.

Before we commence the decluttering in earnest, we will return any items of personal value to you. Then, on your behalf, we can sell unwanted possessions that have some financial value. We can also recycle, repurpose or donate other unwanted items. For items such as documents and records – we will organise secure disposal and destruction. In addition to this, we take pride in responsibly removing potential hazardous items such as household or workshop chemicals.

If you, and members of your family, are able to identify and remove any belongings that carry sentimental or personal significance we suggest you do so. Alternatively, you can direct remove specific items such as a piece of art, or categories of items such as all photos. In addition to this, we will always use are discretion as we remove items from the home. We routinely find items that are of value to our clients, in fact in almost 50% of occasions this occurs even after they have looked extensively for such items. In many cases they were simply unaware that they were there. Items have included jewellery, important photographs, cash and many others.

Our team is very experienced when it comes to decluttering and we do exercise personal judgement. Basically, this means that if we encounter anything that we think might be important to you, we will put it aside and inform you promptly. We are of the belief that it is best to be on the safe side when decluttering homes. In line with this belief, we will never dispose of anything unless we are completely confident that it is not of any value to your or your loved ones.

At Property Clearance, we are of the honest belief that our decluttering services are more cost effective overall. The decluttering process is often quite a significant one. When you add to this the emotional impact of decluttering your or your loved ones' home, it can be nothing short of overwhelming. In addition to the emotional toll, you should also consider the physical difficulty of moving potentially heavy and cumbersome items such as furniture. With Property Clearance, you get respectful service that takes the emotional and physical toll out of the equation. It can take several weeks – in fact usually months – for you to completely declutter a home. In contrast, it normally takes us just 3-5 days. Because of this, we believe that our decluttering services are beneficial for all our clients.

The exact price of our decluttering services does depend on your situation. Factors such as the size of the home and the number of belongings inside it all contribute to the final cost. However in our experience, we find that approximately 0.5% to 2% of the property's value will cover the cost of its complete clearance. This includes maintenance, cleaning, decluttering, and more. If you arrange to have a telephone meeting with us, we can provide you with a detailed and customised service outline and a fixed-fee quotation within twenty-four hours.
