Who Needs House Clearance Services and How to Prepare for A House Clearance
There are many reasons why clients may need house clearance services and may choose to use a professional, reliable company such as ours to carry this out for them. The most common reason that we experience with our clients is after a bereavement, when an elderly family member dies, or perhaps when that person moves into a residential home. This can be especially upsetting for family members and hiring a house clearance company can make this process far less stressful and traumatic when dealing with a loss or big changes. House clearances are also useful when people have been hoarding items within their home or flat, are moving to a smaller property and require to get rid of furniture and general clutter in order to downsize, when a tenant has been evicted and has left unwanted items behind and in situations where there is a flat or apartment within a building with no lift or way to transport items up and down. These are just some of the reasons people may be in need of house clearance services and we have experience with all of these situations.
Preparing for a House Clearance
The two key items to a speedy and successful house clearance are the right preparation from the clients, and the hiring of a company who have a great track record and can be relied upon.
Spending some time doing preparation prior to a company arriving to clear the property always makes the whole process go more smoothly. The things you should do to prepare are identify whether there are items you’d like to keep and remove these from the property completely, or ensure they’re clearly marked that they have to be kept. It’s also a good idea to go through the home and see if there are any items of value that you could sell on and make some cash from. If you find a few items of value that you’re able to sell, this could even pay for the professional home clearance services!
Choosing a Reliable and Trustworthy House Clearance Company
The other thing to be aware of when choosing a company to carry out a house clearance is to ensure that they are reliable, experienced, trustworthy and full licensed. This means you know you’ll have a good experience and that the items and goods will be disposed of in the correct way. This will put your mind to rest and you’ll be safe in the knowledge that your items are being disposed of properly.
We recommend only using companies such as ours that are fully licensed with the Environment Agency. These licenses are compulsory and any company who transports and disposes of waste, whether household or commercial, is required to have one. Any reputable firm will be able to give you their waste carrier license information and should even show you their license on request.
