This gives new clients some understanding of the clearance process and pricing. If you are looking to clear a property in Edmonton 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 Edmonton area.
CLEARANCE DATE: 1st August 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Croyland Road Edmonton, London N9
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full House Clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 3 Bedroom terraced house
We were instructed by our client to completely clear the household furniture, effects and remaining personal possessions of a 3 bedroom terraced house in Croyland Rd, Edmonton London N9. The previous occupant, who had lived there for 60 years, was moving in to a care home, and the property was to be let. As the occupier had been ill for some time, the property also required a thorough clean, and there were a large amount of oak furniture and soft furnishings as well as personal effects which needed removing. We were also asked to tidy up the garden and remove all garden furniture. We usually value house contents for probate prior to carrying out a property clearance, but in this case a probate valuation was not required.
Croyland Rd is a narrow road, and although parking is unrestricted, it is often difficult to find a space. We therefore arranged with Enfield Borough Council to suspend parking outside the property so that our vans could park easily. We arrived at the job at approximately 7 a.m. and immediately started work, removing a large amount furniture newspaper and other assorted junk. We then started with the furnishings, and cleared cupboards, tables, chairs, chests of drawers, beds, bedding, stools, sofas, coffee tables and armchairs. We deep cleaned the kitchen and bathroom, and removed the carpets, as these were to be replaced. We then tidied the garden, cleared the paths of weeds and removed the garden furniture as requested. The job was completed by 6 p.m. and we handed the keys over to a firm of estate agents so that the property could be shown to prospective tenants.
Disposal of Contents
Most of the furniture was in poor condition, and, unfortunately, could not be re-used or recycled. We arranged its disposal at a local licenced waste site. The paper, bottles and other recyclable items were sent to our recycling centre.
The client , and his son, inspected the property and declared themselves to be ‘very satisfied’ with our work. They were particularly delighted by the deep clean of the kitchen, which left it looking clean, neat and tidy.
It seems that the previous occupant was a technology fan, and among his possessions, hidden in a cupboard, was a box marked ‘the world’s smallest radio’ made by the Sinclair company in 1970. We tested it with new batteries and the sound was very good. The radio was approximately the size of a matchbox, and was a miracle of miniaturization at the time. With the permission of the owner we sent this to a radio museum for exhibition.
