CLEARANCE DATE: 9th November 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Langley Avenue, Surbiton, London, KT6
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full house clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 5-bedroom house
Our client for this clearance owned a detached house on Langley Avenue in Surbiton, London, KT6. After inheriting the property from his uncle, he wanted to place the house on the market and he required a full clearance and clean beforehand. He informed us that there were some antiques still in the property that he would never get around to selling, so he said that if we could sell these we were welcome to them.
The house was very large and had a spacious driveway for our vans so we were able to park up very close to the front door. We protected the door with plywood, as well as through the hallway, to reduce the risk of any damage occurring. We located the antiques in one of the bedrooms and sorted through them to decide which of them were suitable for selling. In the end we picked out three items including a painting, a statue and a decorative bowl, and separated these from the other contents. We removed everything from each of the rooms, including the fridge and freezer from the kitchen. We had previously called a Gas Safe engineer to disconnect the gas cooker, and once he had arrived and carried out the work we removed this as well. Once everything had been removed, including the carpets, we cleaned the entire house using industrial cleaning equipment. The result was a completely empty, very clean house that our client could place on the list to be sold at auction.
Disposal of Contents
We managed to sell all of the antiques that we had separated, and in this way we could save some money on the cost of the clearance for our client. We also donated most of the remaining furniture along with the pots and pans from the kitchen, books, DVDs and a filing cabinet. Everything else was recycled.
The owner was very happy to be able to get a discount on the clearance after we had sold some of the antiques, and he also thanked us for our diligence and hard work.
