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 Deptford area. This gives new clients some understanding of the clearance process and pricing. If you are looking to clear a property in Deptford 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 Deptford area.
CLEARANCE DATE: 25 August 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Idonia Street Deptford, London SE8
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full House Clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 2 bedroom 3rd floor flat – No lift
We were instructed by our client, the owner of the flat, and landlord, to completely clear a two bedroom flat on the third floor of a block of flats in Idonia Street Deptford London. The previous occupants had left the country suddenly, leaving a large quantity of possessions, furniture and household effects, which needed to be cleared so that the property could be re-let. He asked us to thoroughly clean the property as well. We were requested to ensure that items of value were given to the landlord so these could be returned to the owner. We usually value house contents for probate prior to carrying out a property clearance, but in this case a probate valuation was not required.
Deptford is an inner city area, and parking and traffic can be a problem, although there is unrestricted parking in Idonia Street. As a result, we started early, at 6.30 a.m. The flats had no lift, so we arranged for a larger crew than usual, as the carrying of goods down stairs is more labour intensive an time consuming. We cleared clothing, newspapers, televisions, beds, food from the kitchen, chests of drawers and cupboards. After the clearance we cleaned the kitchen and bathroom thoroughly, and hoovered the carpets, leaving the property spotlessly clean and ready for viewings by prospective tenants.
Disposal of Contents
Much of the furniture was in very good condition, and we were able to give this to local charity shops to re-sell. Items of value, such as a large flat screen TV were retained by the landlord. The other household effects were also given to charity shops, which left only a very small amount to be sent to our recycling centre
The client, a Mr Esser, said, “This was a great job. The flat looks really good. Thanks to Jeff and the team.”
