CLEARANCE DATE: 6th September 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Thorpe Bay Gardens, Thorpe Bay, Essex, SS1
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full house clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 5-bedroom house
We were asked to clear this very large house on the coast by the owner of the property who had inherited it from her parents. She had already removed any of the personal items that she wanted to keep, but there were still numerous personal effects and furniture to remove. She contacted us herself, but asked us to arrange everything with her estate agent, who she was using to sell the property once it had been cleared. We were also asked to leave the cooker but to remove the white goods from the kitchen, and to remove the carpets and underlay to prepare the property to be decorated.
This was a very attractive property with a large driveway, and because it was located along Thorpe Bay Gardens it had a view looking right out over the sea. We arrived just after 8am to start work on the clearance, and immediately began to remove the larger items of furniture. The largest of these was a huge oak table that required all of the team to carry safely. We then removed all of the other furniture from upstairs and downstairs, along with the white goods, general household contents and personal effects including clothing. Finally, we removed the carpets and gave the whole property a quick clean to leave it looking presentable, as requested by the client.
Disposal of Contents
Much of the furniture was modern and in good condition, so we sold a few items to offset the cost of the clearance. We also donated other items to a number of local charities. Nearly everything could be reused, which is great because we always try to reduce our environmental impact. Anything that was not reused was recycled so that nothing had to be sent to landfill.
We did not meet the client herself, but the estate agent visited the property at the end of the day and confirmed that it was an excellent job. The owner called us a few days later to say that she had visited the property and was very satisfied with the clearance
