CLEARANCE DATE: 2nd November 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Grove Park, Wanstead, London, E11
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full house clearance
PROPERTY TYPE: 5-bedroom house
Our client contacted us to clear this large house on Grove Park in Wanstead, London, after the owner, who was his brother, died a few weeks earlier. He had been through the property and removed anything that he wanted to keep, so he hired us to clear out the rest of the items and remove the carpets.
The detached house came with a private driveway so we were able to park our vans near to the front door, which made removing the contents easier. We protected the front door by covering it with plywood, and then we set to work clearing the house. Most of the furniture and effects that we removed were still in a very good condition and were perfectly suitable for reusing. In fact, we also came across a table and chairs that looked valuable, so we checked with our client whether we could sell them to offset the cost of the clearance and he was happy for us to do this. The clearance did not present any difficulties for our team. We worked throughout the day non-stop, moving steadily through the house up to the bedrooms. We removed the final item, a large wardrobe, just before 4.30pm, and then removed the carpets from throughout the property. After giving it a quick clean, it was all ready to hand back to the client.
Disposal of Contents
We managed to sell the table and chairs for a good price at auction, and with this money we were able to reduce the cost of the clearance for our client. We donated a number of items from the clearance to a local jumble sale that was being held a few days later, and we also donated some furniture and books to a nearby charity shop. The things that could not be reused were recycled.
Our client thanked us for being so professional and considerate at a painful time for him. Clearing houses can be very personal for the owners, so we were glad that we could work sensitively and considerately.
