As many of our clients have never dealt with probate or used a house clearance company before, we found that it was helpful to outline a previous house clearance in Hammersmith we carried out recently. This gives new clients some understanding of the clearance process and pricing. If you have any probate requirements or looking to clear a property in Hammersmith or surrounding areas 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 Hammersmith area.
CLEARANCE DATE: 18th August 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Sterndale Rd Hammersmith London W6
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full House Clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 4 bedroom terraced house
This house clearance came about as the result of the company which owned the property reducing the size of their presence in the UK and selling the house, which had been used as a residence for employees from abroad on contracts. They now wished to sell the property and required us to clear and clean it and change the locks, prior to it being sold. The client requested also that we hoover the carpets and remove the washing machine, and to check for water leaks after doing so.
Hammersmith, as an inner city area, suffers from very bad traffic congestion, and parking is almost impossible without a resident’s permit. We arranged with Hammersmith Council for temporary permits, but to solve the traffic problem we decided to carry out the clearance on a Sunday. We arrived at 5.30 am to get an early start, and immediately started work, after putting dust sheets down to protect the carpets and plywood sheets in the hallway. We removed chairs, tables, desks, 3 beds, rugs, bedside cabinets, a flat screen television, wifi equipment, pots and pans, and general household goods. We then gave the whole house a good clean, and handed the keys over to our client’s estate agents who inspected the property.
Disposal of Contents
We were able to re-sell some of the contents as they were in good condition, and offset the cost against the clearance fees. The rest was sent to local charities who sold the items through their shops. In this case, everything was in good condition and nothing was sent to landfill or recycled.
This was the third clearance we had done for this client, and they stated that we had done an excellent job and were their first choice for clearance jobs in the future.
