How do I know who to use?
House clearing companies should all be registered correctly so take a little time to check out their websites and look at the services that are on offer.

What should you look for?
You need a house clearance company who are trust worthy and who work to your needs. A company that offers competitive prices but also one who does the job properly.
You may realise you have some quite sentimental and precious items in your home that you overlooked. Be sure to find a company who will be transparent with you about things they find.

A company you can trust would give you peace of mind that you are in safe hands. An experienced and well known local house clearance company will have reviews that you can take time to read and process.
Who cares about the environment?
We do too! We are glad you feel the same. This is why it’s vital that the company you use diverts from landfill as much as they possibly can. They should also be clear about the recycling they do and how they use the correct disposal units for your items.
One mans rubbish is another mans treasure!
We find this all too often…. Customers want to dispose of items that a charity shop may have use for. So be sure to use a house clearance company that supports a charity and is happy to re home your rubbish if it can be of use to somebody else! Community spirit is always so important!
Maybe you are having a house clearance due to a difficult situation for instance a separation or a loved one has passed away. If this is the case you should ensure the company you use is able to handle your removal in a sensitive and efficient way. You may not wish to be at the property at all
