If you’re an estate agent or solicitor, dealing with probate estates can be difficult. It’s an emotional time for everyone involved and you may feel like you wish there was more you could do.

One of the most dreaded tasks involved in a house sale after a loved one passes away, is clearing the property. The properties can sometimes be family homes, filled with belongings and precious, cherished memories.

This is where the estate agents/referrals usually lend a hand and refer their clients to us. We’re a house clearance/removals service based in Gloucestershire and we specialise in deceased estates.

Using our service allows your clients to hand the responsibility of the clearance over to us.; or at least allows us to give your clients a helping hand when clearing their loved one’s belongings. We allow families the chance to take a step back whilst we respectfully sort the property ready to back on the market. This ensures the property completes on time and also allows the families to grieve, rather than focus on clearing and cleaning.

We sort through the property, remove everything that’s no longer needed and donate/recycle/upcycle them. Our ethos is all around the environment and we do everything we can to avoid landfill.

Here are some reasons why estate agents and solicitors through Gloucestershire continue to refer their clients to us and why we’re the best at what we do.

1. Specialist approach

We have a really strong reputation through Gloucestershire for providing the most caring, personal and unique approach to house clearances in the local area. Our service is 100% person-centred and our approach is yet to be beaten.

Our kind, thoughtful and caring team are amazing at what they do and aim to make things as easy as possible for clients who are grieving.

2. Experience

We’ve spent years working with grieving families. Over this time, we’ve gained the experience needed to call ourselves specialists in our field.

If clients are unsure about letting a team of people into their loved one’s home at such a difficult time, they should take a look at our online reviews. These are comments written by real people who have taken time out their day to do so. People come to us because they have faith that we have the experience needed to be able to make things easier for them; and indeed, we do.

3. A tribute

With many house clearance companies, especially the larger ones, the experience is quite impersonal. They’re usually working to tight deadlines and are focused on getting the task at hand completed.

At Clear & Clean House Clearance, we put a huge focus on your client’s loved one for the whole clearance. After an initial consultation with Director, David, the team is always fully briefed. Each team member is trained to treat each client with the utmost compassion and kindness. Belongings are always treated with dignity and respect, whether they’re being kept by the family members or cleared.

We can even tailor parts of the clearance around what your client’s loved one would have wanted. For example, donating items to their favourite charity. We also work with up-cyclers, to give old furniture a new lease of life. There is always a little bit of comfort in knowing that rather being taken to the tip, loved one’s belongings are bringing joy to someone else.

4. A weight off their shoulders

During the difficult time of losing someone you love, the thought of having to clear and clean their whole property shouldn’t be the main thing on your mind. This is why we’ve tailored our service specifically to help families and make a difference to their lives during an upsetting time.

“I would highly recommend David Rudd and his team who with respect, sympathy and dignity, cleared my Mother's house when I had to put it up for sale. David and his team had a difficult job to do, due to the access to the property and its location. David kept in contact throughout the 10 days it took him to clear the property and advised of progress. The property was left neat and tidy at the end of the job. I would never have completed the task without him. Excellent service, before, during and afterwards.”

When it comes to choosing a new company for any type of service, the decision-making process of who to choose can be tricky. Are you choosing the right company? Are they reliable? Will they show up? Will they get the job done on time? There are so many unknowns involved. And, things can be become more complicated if you’re an indecisive person, or maybe a bit of a worrier.

Here at Clear & Clean House Clearance, we understand that it can be difficult to put your trust in a company you’ve never used before. So, we’re giving you some tips on how to decide on and book the best house removal/clearance company for you.

1. Does your estate agent/solicitor have any recommendations?

We work really closely with both estate agents and solicitors in Gloucestershire. These types of businesses are always really keen to work with us because they know we’re a hard-working and reliable business who go above and beyond to help their clients. They understandably want to refer their clients to someone they know they can trust, so asking if they can refer you to any house removal/clearance companies is a good starting point. Plus, you’ll feel a bit more at ease using a business that comes with multiple recommendations.

2. Google is your friend

If your estate agent/solicitor doesn’t have any recommendations, or you’d like to look at some other options too, head to Google. Googling terms such as ‘House Clearance Gloucestershire’ or ‘House Removal Tewkesbury’ will display lots of relevant businesses for you to have a browse through.

3. Check reviews

A great way to check the reliability of a service you’re thinking of using, is seeing what kind of experience previous customers had. We understand that it can be hard to let strangers into your home and handle your belongings. That’s why we always ask our customers to leave us a review – to help people like you be assured that you can trust us.

4. Phone around

If you’ve narrowed it down to a view different house removal companies and you’re not sure where to go from here, give each business a call.

It’ll quickly give you an insight into the company, their values and probably availability too!

At this stage, we’d also give you a free, no-obligation quote.

5. Check their website

When you’ve come to a decision and it’s time to make the booking, check their website to see what their process is. Most house removal companies will be reachable by phone/email. Some may use online booking systems. Each business will differ.

Here at Clear & Clean House Clearance, we always suggest giving us a call to book. That way, we can have a chat, learn about you and your clearance/removal and make sure we can help in the way that you need us to.

Every house move is totally unique to the homeowner and we put a lot of effort into making the move as personalised as possible to the client.

We’d also add that in our many years of working in this industry, we guarantee there’s nothing we haven’t seen. So if you’re worried about something, or are perhaps going through a difficult time, please let us know. One of our many strengths is tailoring the whole experience to you, including ensuring you have the support you need to get you through the move.

If you’re currently looking to book a house removal/clearance company in Gloucestershire, or just have some initial questions, give David a call today on 07909 846679 or 01452 290086. He’ll chat with you about your needs, let you know our availability and give you a free quote too. We’ll be more than happy to see how we can help.

Every house clearance company operates differently. Most house clearance companies that we’re aware of, focus solely on removing unwanted items from a property and disposing of them. Not many clearance companies will offer a ‘removals’ service. This is where, if a client is moving home, the company clears the property, taking the client's belongings to the new property. Then they will dispose of the unwanted items too.

Clear and Clean House Clearance are really proud to offer both house clearance and house removal services. But… with something a little extra. We do house removals with a difference. We even include cleaning in our packages, so there’s no need to hire an additional company to help. Check out the below questions to see how we’re so different from other house removal companies around.

How does the process work?

You simply book us for the moving date that you need. We’ll come and start boxing things up and labelling them by room in the weeks beforehand. Then we’ll remove everything on moving day, so you don’t need to do a thing. Oh… and we’ll also return to clean the property!

What happens to items you want to keep?

We stagger our removals package over a period of time, so things aren’t left until the last minute. This way, you can see things coming together. From a few weeks before, we’ll agree on dates to come in and start boxing and labelling things up, room by room. When the time comes for the big move, we’ll simply come in, pop everything onto our van, and unload all boxes in the appropriate room in the new property.

What happens to items you don’t want to keep?

All you need to do is let us know the products you don’t want to take with you. We will then segment these items by material/items that can be donated/salvaged.

We never take items to landfill, so will either recycle, donate or upcycle your unwanted belongings.

What services do you provide?

With our house removal declutter package, we do all the boxing, clearing and moving. We’ll then return to the property to clean it to a professional standard, so it’s ready for its new occupants.

We take a lot of time to ensure all unwanted items are dealt with in an environmentally friendly manner. Any items that can be salvaged will be taken to charities/our friends who love to upcycle old products. Any items that can’t be salvaged will be segmented and recycled. So, you can be assured you aren’t contributing to the ongoing landfill epidemic.

We also have a huge amount of experience working with sensitive removals/clearances like hoarders and bereaved families. We provide an incredibly personal approach, with emotional support; with many of our clients saying we become part of the family for the time we’re with them. So, if you’re going through a hard time and are worried about trusting a company to come into your home and sort through your belongings, please call David for a chat and some reassurance.

When do I pay?

There are no up-front costs with our house removal declutter package. Full payment can be made after the project is complete/when the house hits completion. Why? Because we understand that moving home is stressful and expensive. So, if you need us to wait until your house completes for payment, we’re happy to do that.

Who do you work with?

We work with so many types of clients. We work with direct clients who are moving home/decluttering, hoarders, bereaved families, companies who are moving premises etc.

We also have partnerships with Estate Agents, Solicitors and other types of businesses. We know that companies like Estate Agents prefer to refer their clients to companies they know they can trust. That’s why, when it comes to Estate Agents referring clients to a removals company in Gloucestershire, we’re always the first choice.

If you’d like to know more about the process, have any more questions or would like a free quote, please call David for a chat today on 07909 846679 or 01452 290086.

Moving home is usually an exciting time. A new place to live, perhaps a better garden, a new location and a fresh start! It’s all going so well until you realise it’s time to start getting organised for the dreaded house move

Many people don’t know that this process doesn’t have to be stressful. If you’re an estate agent who is waiting on a seller to hand the property over under vacant possession; or even a buyer, waiting to move into a new property, things can be tense. This is because everything is down to the seller to ensure the property is left in a good condition by the deadline.

With so many different things to think about, many people find themselves thinking ‘I wish I could just get someone else to do the move for me’. Well guess what? They can... we can! Here are a few things that we, at Clear and Clean House Clearance do, to make a house removal as stress-free as possible for everyone involved.

1. Avoid up-front fees

When you’re moving home, there are so many fees involved! It’s a good idea to avoid as many up-front fees as you can. We know what you’re thinking, ‘that’s nearly impossible!’… but our removals package makes this really easy for you. We don’t charge a single thing, not even a deposit until your house hits completion. Meaning that we can conduct your whole house removal whilst you can focus on the sale of the property. Then, when your house sells, you have the cash to pay us.

2. Don’t do everything all at once

As with most situations, it can be stressful to leave things until the last minute. This is why we stagger our removal period over a period of time. Rather than waiting until super close to the deadline day, we start early by coming in to pack boxes and get things organised. Depending on the size of the removal, we’ll do this for as long as we need to.

Then, when move-out day comes, everything runs smoothly for clearing the property. We then return to clean the property and leave it in perfect condition for vacant possession.

3. Organise a box of ‘essentials’

When you’ve boxed so many different items, it can be tricky to remember where everything is located. So, when you get to your new home, you’re having to rummage through every box looking for the things you need.

This is why we always prepare you a ‘care package’ containing things like phone chargers, toothbrushes, spare clothes, towels, plates and cutlery.

4. Plan where everything will go

It is so easy to just put the things you don’t want in black backs and pay someone to take them to the tip. But have you ever thought about how much you’re contributing to landfill, and what exactly that does to our planet?

We help our clients stop over 552 tons of unwanted items from going to landfill every single year. We take the things you don’t want and either recycle them, donate them or pass them on to charitable upcyclers. This is a really positive thing to do if you’re deciding which items to keep from a loved one who’s passed away. We have great relationships with charities, recyclers and up-cyclers, and the removal of the items from your property is all included in our removals package.

Whether you’re a homeowner who’s selling their property, or an estate agent looking to refer some clients to a trusted, Gloucestershire-based company, get in touch today. Give us a call on 07909 846679 or 01452 290086 and we can have a chat and see how we can help.
