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.
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.
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.
NEVER pay cash before or after. Always get an invoice.
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.
Don’t be afraid to ask any questions, however silly you think they might be. A good professional company has probably heard them before.
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.
