Common Home Clearance Questions

What do you do with unwanted items?2020-09-03T22:57:20+10:00

Our approach to managing unwanted items depends on your preferences. If you want them gone, then we can arrange for their disposal, sale or even donation to those in need. If we find any items of significant financial value, such as jewellery or cash, then we will return them to you.

I would like to remove some of the items in my parents’ home myself. Will this affect the work that you do or its cost?2020-09-03T22:57:20+10:00

We are sometimes approached by clients who want to do some of the house clearance work themselves to reduce costs. In these cases, we advise against removing anything other than items of sentimental value. Only you can identify such items, which is why it makes sense for you to remove them. In terms of other items, however, you will probably find that it is not worth the effort. Home clearances are often pretty big jobs. Without the right equipment or experience, you can spend days clearing a property without getting very far. In contrast, it will probably take us a fraction of the time. In addition to this, the price of your home clearance will probably not fall by a great deal after you have toiled away for days if not weeks.
