CLEARANCE DATE: 2nd October 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Aldworth Road, Stratford, London, E15
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full house clearance and new locks
PROPERTY TYPE: 3-bedroom house
On-street parking was available outside the house, so we parked our vans up at 8.00am and began work on the clearance immediately. The first thing that we noticed was that lots of the furniture and effects had been damaged. Chair legs were broken and curtains were torn, so it was clear that we would not be able to reuse many items. We cleared out the living room first, removing all of the furniture including a large sofa that had been torn so that some of the stuffing was coming out. This took a few hours because there were lots of things to remove. We then moved into the kitchen, and made our way through the entire house removing all of the household effects that we encountered. At 2.00pm the locksmith arrived to change the locks on the doors and windows, and he finished a few hours later. We continued to clear the house, and we finished off by giving the property a light clean to make it look presentable. We ended up completing the clearance by 6.00pm.
Disposal of Contents
The owner was a volunteer at a local charity for the homeless, and she asked us to donate anything that we could to the charity. Unfortunately many of the items were not fit for donating, but we did manage to send over a few chairs and blankets that had not been damaged. All of the remaining contents were sent to our recycling centre so we could reduce the amount of waste produced by the clearance.
Our client took a quick look around the house at the end of the clearance and said that we had done an excellent job. She was also pleased that we could organise the changing of the locks on the same day for even greater convenience.
