As many of our clients have never used a house clearance company before, we found that it was helpful to outline previous work we have conducted in the Cricklewood area. This gives new clients some understanding of the clearance process and pricing. If you are looking to clear a property in Cricklewood then for free advice without obligation, you can call our London Office on 0208 640 0044.
We also carry out property valuation for probate and house contents valuation for probate purposes in the Cricklewood area.
CLEARANCE DATE: 16th June 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Anson Rd, Cricklewood London NW2
CLEARANCE TYPE: House, garden and garage clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 5 Bedroom semi detached house with garage
We were instructed to completely clear the house, garden and garage of a large 5 bedroomed semi detached property in Anson Rd Cricklewood London NW2. The property had been continuously by a couple for the past 60 years, but, as a result of ill health, they had moved in to sheltered accommodation, and wanted their son and his family to live there. As they had their own furniture, they requested that we clear the property so that they could move in. The garage contained a 1964 Zephyr car which was in the process of being restored, and they requested that we remove this as well, and arrange for re-sale if possible. We usually value house contents for probate prior to carrying out a property clearance, but in this case a probate valuation was not required.
We arrived at 6.30 on site, and parked in the front forecourt of the house. We immediately started to remove the furniture, some of which dated from the 1930’s, and was solid and heavy. We removed beds, chairs, bedside units, cupboards, tables, cabinets and assorted household effects. Finally, we removed the Zephyr car and placed it in storage at our recycling centre.
Disposal of Contents
We advised the client that art deco furniture from the 1930’s could have some market value, and that he should consider auctioning them. We assisted with this process, and the proceeds of sale meant that the cost of the clearance was significantly reduced for the client. We also assisted in the sale of the Zephyr car. Much of the rest of the contents were in very good condition and we arranged for disposal through local charities.
The client, a Mr McNaughton, said that he was very pleased with our service. He said, “Thanks for doing an excellent job, and for pointing out the value of the art deco furniture. I really appreciate your honesty and commitment to good old fashioned customer service.”
We found, hidden in an old trunk, every copy of Look and Learn Magazine from 1965 to 1975. The cartoon strip in this publication, the Trigan Empire, has a cult following on the internet, and we were able to arrange for an enthusiast to be given the entire collection. This helped to prevent the necessity to recycle them.
