CLEARANCE DATE: 30th June 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Cookham Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL6
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full flat clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 2-bedroom flat
The owner of this flat had been named as executor of the will following the death of his father, the previous owner. He and his siblings had been through the property and removed any personal items that they wanted to keep, so he instructed us to clear the rest of the property so that it could be sold. Off-street parking was available outside the building so we had no problems with access.
We parked our vehicles at 7 a.m. without any difficulty, and the client had already informed other residents that we would be clearing the property during the day. It was immediately clear that the stairwell was very small and that the larger items would have to be dismantled before we could remove them, but the owner was fine with that because he did not want to keep anything from the property. We started with the furniture and effects along with the clothing and general bric a brac. Most of of these items were in good condition and consisted of a large amount of books, records, ornaments, cutlery and utensils. The house was tidy and easy to manoeuvre around so that made the job easier. The client was not planning to sell the property immediately and was going to get a small amount of renovation done over the following months.
Disposal of Contents
The clearance took just over half a day to complete because the flat was not large and it was all in good order. Many of the items were in a good condition so we donated these to some local charitable organisations. We found a diary in one of the drawers belonging to our client’s father with accounts of his posting during the second world war. Our client was very happy and tucked it away in his bag to study later. We also found a few items of interest including an old violin, some silverware and a couple of Victorian prints which were retained by the owner. We removed everything else in our vans and sent them straight to our depot to be processed for recycling.
The client was very impressed with the job and said that we finished much sooner than he expected. He said that he would be more than happy to recommend us to any of his friends that might have the same task in the future.
