We can arrange to pick up keys if you are unable to attend the clearance. We remove everything that is outlined in the original quote. If there is anything that we feel has a resale value we will let you know and offset this against the original cost. Likewise if we find things that we feel may have sentimental value we will set these aside for your perusal.
What does our house clearance service cost?We provide a quote based upon certain factors;1) The amount and weight of unwanted items which, in turn, affects the charges we pay to dispose of them responsibly2) The time and labour required to complete the clearance3) The resale value of any items we are required to clear
In the event that we are able to identify any items of value we will reduce the cost of the clearance accordingly, if there are items that we feel are antiques we will offer to purchase these or advise you as to how and where to sell them if you wish.

It is very difficult to offer an accurate house or garage clearance quote without having seen the job in question. Various factors which influence the final quote are the size of area to be cleared, the overall weight of the unwanted items and charges incurred by us to remove said items. We therefore advise that we arrange a visit, at your convenience, to establish a quote. Once this has been agreed the amount we intend to charge is final, it will only alter if the conditions of the original job change, such as additional items needing disposal. This will increase the original cost of removal due to the additional weight of our overall load.
However, if we find there are items which may have a resale value we will lower the cost accordingly. You are under no obligation or pressure to accept our quote, we are only interested in providing you with a good service, not cold calling or hard selling.
