House Clearance Frequently Asked Questions
A recent study found that people move home an average of 1.8 times in their life. That’s really not a lot when you think about it. But you don’t have to be moving house to clear a property. You could have lost a loved one who’s estate is your responsibility to clear, be tacking hoarding and so on.
Our point is, a full house clearance happens so unfrequently in our lives, that many people don’t know where to start when they’re faced with the challenge.
When clients first get in touch for a quote and a chat, it’s safe to say the word that best describes them is ‘daunted’. They have so many questions, aren’t sure where to go, who to trust or what to look out for when it comes to help with a house clearance. It’s our job to make them feel at ease by explaining everything they need to know.
A recent influx of calls made us realise that it’s probably about time to publish an FAQ blog post so people can see their questions answered online. So here we are. And remember, if we don’t cover a question that you’d like to know the answer to, be sure to get in touch!
1. How much does a house clearance cost?
This is very much like asking ‘how long is a piece of string?’ or asking for a quote from your hairdresser before they’ve had chance to assess your hair. Each house clearance quote will vary due to the size of the property, the waste to be cleared and the number of staff needed. You can give us a call on 07909 846679 or 01452 290086 for a chat and a free, no obligation quote.
2. How long does a house clearance take?
Again, this is dependent on the work to be done. When we provide you with your quote, we’d give you an idea of the amount of hours/days we’d need to block out in order to clear the property. If you’re working towards a deadline, don’t worry. As long as we’ve got the space to fit you in, we’ll get you all moved out by the time it’s arrived.
3. Do I have to be involved?
You can be involved as you like. Usually people hire us to manage the project ourselves so they can get on with other things. However, in some circumstances, you may like a more hands on approach. For example, we have a lot of experience working with hoarders and conducting a house clearance very sensitively.
4. How do I know who to trust?
You should look out for licensed House Clearance companies and ensure they have insurance too. This is the best way to pick a reliable company. Also, you can check out the company’s online reviews. Here at Clear and Clean House Clearance, we’re a trusted, well-respected family-run company with years of experience behind us.
