The Pied Piper Appeal was started in 1992 to help to build a new Children’s Hospital attached to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. They also help equip special schools in Gloucestershire, send children with life limiting or terminal illnesses and their families on Wish holidays and has also helped to make children’s experience of mental health easier by improving the facilities they are treated in.

When clients choose my company Clear and Clean House Clearance we start by segmenting the house into areas of charity, waste, recycling, metal etc. We then load the van with good furniture’s ready for their shop in Brockworth and other charities we use.

Yes. The Pied Piper Appeal is close to our hearts as we know first hand what it is like to have a sick child. Our first son was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA). He went though a lot when he was very young and open heart surgery when he was 8 days old. He has since made a (full) recovery but others on the ward weren’t so lucky. After going back to the Childrens Ward at Gloucester, looking around you are surrounded by items donated by the Pied Piper Appeal. They do a wonderful job of helping children in the local community and it is all made possible by kind donations and a lot of hard work by many volunteers.

Our ethos has always been to give back to the community where possible and to support local charities.

1. Are they licensed by the Environment Agency and Insured?

Every house clearance company should hold a waste carriers license and have public liability insurance.

2. Reviews

A reputable house clearance company should have reviews. These are sent by previous clients so they should give you an honest look into the business.

3. Website

The website should be reader friendly and professional.

4. Contact numbers

Always look for companies with both a mobile and a landline number as a mobile number could be anywhere.

5. Payment

NEVER pay cash before or after. Always get an invoice.

6. Recommendations

If you are selling the property, speak to the local estate agent you are using as they will probably know and recommend a professional company they have used before.

7. First impressions

I believe that in the first 10 seconds of meeting someone you know if they are the right company for you.

8. Questions

Don’t be afraid to ask any questions, however silly you think they might be. A good professional company has probably heard them before.

9. Cost

To some cost is crucial. When something is cheaper it doesn’t always mean it will be better. If you get 2 quotes and one is significantly lower than the other don’t discount the higher quote, think why the other quote is so low.

You get what you pay for. Disposing of waste through the correct channels is costly and some companies avoid this by fly tipping hence why they seem to be cheap. This is illegal and if the council find any details on the fly tip a hefty fine is issued to the client. Always get an invoice from the company.

10. Service

We at Clear and Clean House Clearance believe that service is vital. We pride ourselves on the service we provide. When clearing a deceased estate it is an emotional time for the family so it needs to be treated with care, attention and respect. Always look for companies who go the extra mile. Clear and Clean House Clearance always try and donate to local charities, use dog shelters, food banks. Any personals found should go back to the family to be sorted and handed down the generation line. WE always clean the properties after we have cleared them and present them ready for the market.

House Clearance companies are all different in what service they provide. Some companies just clear the properties, where others clean as well.

Sometimes, it is necessary to carry out a full or partial house clearance to create space, prepare a property for sale/rent, or to clear the home of a deceased relative. A house clearance can be a major task, and hiring a professional and reliable firm to carry it out for you can be immensely helpful.

This article explains what house clearances involve and why they are used.

What is a House Clearance?

A house clearance involves full – or just partial – removal of the contents of a household. Typically, house clearances are used to prepare a home for new occupation by getting rid of unwanted clutter left over from previous dwellers.

Landlords and letting agents commonly utilise house clearance services between lets, to make sure that the house, flat or apartment is ready to be occupied again. A house clearance might also be needed to clear out a hoarder’s home, which may be entirely filled with myriad unused items. If you’re downsizing, a house clearance can be particularly useful in quickly removing items that you either can’t or don’t want to take with you.

Should you be in need of a House Clearance then you might be overwhelmed by choice, there are literary hundreds operating in almost every local town across the entire UK. Hopefully by reading this article you will be in a better position to make a decision that you won’t regret.

The most important thing you should know when selecting any house clearance company is that you are responsible for all rubbish and waste from the property, what this means even through you may be paying someone to dispose of your rubbish on your behalf but you are still responsible until the point it is legally and responsibly disposed of.

There are a few reasons why people or businesses will fly tip but generally it is because they are trying to avoid the costs of disposing of the items. You might not be aware that for people generally dumps are free, while businesses need to pay money – even if the items are coming from some one’s home.

The pricing of getting rid of your waste is fairly expensive and the dump will charge per the ton, a general house clearance could cost anywhere from £100 to £1000 or even more if most of the property is being stripped.

The government and local councils have made it easier than ever to report fly-tipping, if the items can be tracked back to you then you could face a fixed fine, the fine amount varies from county to county but just as an example Gloucesterhsire council treat fly-tipping very serious and charge up to £20,000 or you can even face a prison sentence, of course it’s unlikely that you will go to jail if someone has fly-tipped without your knowledge but a fine is extremely likely.

In the event your items are fly tipped then the local council will care little who you used to dump your items on your behalf, as far as they are concerned it’s been tracked down to your property and it’s your responsibility to ensure whom you use correctly dispose of your waste.

1. One of the instrumental factors when planning a house clearance is time, ensuring everything goes as smooth as possible. A good suggestion for two people undertaking a house clearance is to allow about ½ a day per room that needs to be cleared. This may seem a lot but it gives you sufficient time to do the job and remove the stress that comes with it.

2. Once you've made some time in your schedule for the house clearance, the next step is to go through everything to decide which items you wish to keep, which you want to sell or donate, and which items are to be cleared by labelling as such.

3. Almost there now! But before you call to arrange to take it away, you need to work out how much stuff you have.

The easiest way of estimating volume is to think in terms of a standard domestic skip. How many standard skips - the six-yard type one commonly sees outside a domestic building site - do you think your bulky items would fill? You don't need to be exact, just estimate to the nearest skip load. Once complete, add it all up and get a total volume estimate.

4. Take care of your confidential documents, as Identity theft is a growing problem in the UK. Dispose all bank statements, credit card receipts or health records etc by shredding.

In addition, if you are undertaking a house clearance for a deceased relative, be careful not to shred any documents you might require later. If you are in any doubt talk to the solicitor or executor dealing with the estate
