The house clearance in involved removing and disposing the contents from three floors and a garage, and shed and
dismantling a huge wooden dog kennel.  We also took up all the carpets.

As can be imagined there was a great deal of going up and down flights of stairs.
The need to recycle as much as possible and look out for items to return to the family required care and time.

A luton box van can only legally carry 1 and a 1/4 tonnes. This house clearance filled 2 vans and took a day and a half.

The truthful answer is maybe or maybe not
In any form of clearance we incur costs. These are labour, transport and we pay tipping fees.
We need to recoup these costs and make a profit.

In the majority of cases the second hand value of items reduces our fees.

a) the value exceeds the costs so we pay the client
b) the value equals the costs so we remove everything for free
c) the value is lower than costs but reduces the fee in an agreed way.

Of course there may be no second hand value so no fee reduction.

So the answer to the question is it depends on the size of property, its position, and many other factors
AND the quantity, quality and value of the items inside.
Without an assessment we can't determine the value of items so any telephone quote is meaningless.

We want to give you a
written binding quote so please ask us to attend for a free assessment.
