What Do House Clearance Companies Do?

what do house clearance companies do

In very simple terms, house clearance companies in the UK will remove unwanted items from properties. It could be that you moved and left waste behind, or as in most cases, need a house cleared after someone has died.

A typical house clearance will include sorting, removing, and disposing of items such as furniture, electronics, clothing, and other household goods in an ethical and environmentally responsible way. Some house clearance companies may also offer additional services such as organising estate sales or donating usable items to charitable organisations.

But a word of warning, not all house clearance companies are the same. 

If you are looking to choose a house clearance company, look no further than the Zero Waste Group. We offer house clearances services across the UK. If we don’t happen to cover your area, here’s what to look for in a good house clearance company.

What makes a good house clearance company

1. Professional and experienced staff

The best house clearance companies are those that employ highly skilled and knowledgeable workers. Sadly, we see some house clearance companies quickly pop up in local areas, with no experience, and simply someone trying to make some quick cash.

2. Ethical and environmentally friendly disposal methods

The house clearance company should dispose of waste according to the latest environmental regulations and law. They should also look to reduce as much waste as possible, which can include donating items to charities and recycling.

3. Comprehensive clearance services for all types of properties

The company you choose should have the expertise and equipment necessary to handle clearances in a variety of property types, including homes, offices, and commercial spaces.

4. Ability to handle sensitive situations with discretion and empathy

The company should be able to handle sensitive situations, such as clearances after the passing of a loved one, with sensitivity, empathy, and respect.

5. Flexible scheduling to accommodate clients’ needs

The company should be able to accommodate clients’ scheduling needs and provide flexible scheduling options to minimize disruption.

6. Proper insurance coverage for all clearance activities

The company should have the necessary insurance coverage to protect clients and their properties during the clearance process. This also includes being a licensed waste carrier who can provide a waste transfer note at the end of the job so you have the peace of mind it was disposed of legally.

7. Responsible handling of personal and confidential items

The company should have strict procedures in place for handling personal and confidential items, such as documents, with the utmost care and confidentiality.

8. Support for local charities and community organizations

The company should have a commitment to giving back to the community, such as by supporting local charities and community organisations through donations or volunteering.

9. Competitive pricing

The company should offer fair and transparent pricing that is in line with market rates and provides value for money.

10. Good reviews and a reputation

Good reviews and reputation are essential for a house clearance company to establish credibility. It will lead to client confidence as they choose a company that has a proven track record of success.
