House Clearance Charges Explained
It is important for you to understand that a house clearance involves a considerable amount of resources including labour, transportation, tipping fees and various other charges which all go together to make a total cost for a house clearance. Further to this we have other factors to take into consideration ie. the value of the furniture and effects and residual content which can possibly be taken into consideration by way of an allowance used to offset the house clearance quote
What’s Involved The Costs And How It All Works
1. The charge for disposal of household furniture and effects that has no commercial value at a land fill site classed as general waste. This charge varies depending on location, and in some places, particularly London, as much as £190 per ton.
2. The cost of manual labour, fuel, parking fees, materials (boxes and black bags) and congestion charging where applicable.
3. Cost of relocation ie removals of items to other locations inside UK or overseas if required.
4. However, if some of the furniture and effects have a realistic commercial value or they are good enough to re-use, recycle or give to charity then an allowance can be made that will reduce the total cost of the house clearance. But please be aware that second hand furniture does not carry a great value and it must meet the current fire regulations.
