As a specialist London house clearance firm, we know exactly what to do in any clearance situation. We’ve dealt with large and small clearances across the country, dealing with hoarding situations, dangerous items and valuable objects.
However, in some circumstances you can certainly make our job easier and help yourself out at the same time by taking a few simple steps before our team turns up.
Tell Your Neighbours
It’s a good idea to notify anyone who may be affected by the house clearance before we turn up to carry out the job. This will obviously include anyone living in the building such as tenants, but you might also want to warn your neighbours if they live in close proximity.
Although we make sure that our staff operate professionally and as quietly as possible, the movement of large items of furniture and lots of people going in and out of a property is clearly going to lead to some levels of noise and disruption. By informing neighbours and other residents early on you can make life easier for everyone involved.
Separate Your Items
If you have items within the property which you want to keep then it is your duty to notify us, otherwise we will clear them out with all the other contents. As well as notifying us, it is also a good idea to separate these items and label them when possible.
We make a big effort to dispose of items properly following any house clearance, which means reusing and recycling them in 85% of cases. However, we regularly encounter items of monetary or sentimental value, from antiques to important documents. You can help us out by separating these items and clearly marking them to prevent any chance that they may get cleared out along with the other items.
Notify Us of Items to Be Transported
Often people want a house cleared of everything, and in such cases we will dispose of the contents responsibly. However, when you want some items to be transported to another location you should notify us in advance.
Create a list of all the things which you want to be sent onto another address and then we can easily separate these from all of the other contents to ensure that nothing gets lost.
Simple Steps to a Better Clearance
These are a few of the simple steps that you can take to ensure that your house clearance is a success. As mentioned, we are used to dealing with even the most challenging situations and can handle any job we are set. However, by taking these steps everyone can benefit when organising a house clearance.
