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 St Johns Wood we carried out recently. This gives new clients some understanding of the clearance process and pricing.

CLEARANCE DATE: 4th October 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Grove End Rd St Johns Wood NW8
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full flat clearance and lock change
PROPERTY TYPE: 3-bedroom flat
This three-bedroom flat on Grove End Road in St Johns Wood, NW8, was owned by our client who asked us to carry out a complete clearance right down to the carpets and curtains. He also asked us if we would be able to change the locks at the same time, and we said that we would be happy to arrange this.
Parking was available outside the building, but we had to arrange to use a neighbour’s permit in order to park our vans for the day. When we entered the flat it was clear that the job was a large one. Furniture was piled up high in the living room, with chairs stacked up on top of one another and large piles of magazines, books and general household clutter. We started by clearing the living room, which was the most challenging of all the rooms in the flat. We came across a large collection of comics as we cleared the room, and we separated these because we knew that they might be worth reusing rather than discarding. Our team worked very efficiently to remove all of the furniture, and seeing as there were so many items this took a large part of the morning. We also cleared out the kitchen, including the white goods. After clearing out the bedrooms, we took up the carpets and underlay so that nothing remained. During this time, the locksmith arrived to change the locks and we handed the new keys to our client at the end of the day.
Disposal of Contents
We donated the collection of comic books to a charity bookshop nearby, and the manager said that he thought they would sell quickly as they were very popular titles. We also donated some furniture to the same bookshop, and donated a table and chairs to a local home for the elderly, which they were very happy to receive. We recycled nearly everything that we could not find a new home for, and only a very small amount of the contents had to be discarded as waste, making it a very satisfactory clearance.
Our client did not return until the end of the day and he was clearly delighted by the work that we had carried out over the course of the clearance. He said that he would be recommending us to a few of his friends who were landlords.
