New to having to clear your home? Never done this before? Not sure what to look for in a house clearance team? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back.
There are so many unlicensed house clearance companies and ‘Facebook fly-tippers’ out there. It can sometimes be hard to know which companies are genuinely professional and which aren’t. That’s why we’re dedicating this week’s article to help you understand what to look for in a professional house clearance team.
We’re telling you what you can expect from us, Clear and Clean House Clearance, as a gold standard.
1. A friendly service
We value each and every one of our customers. You can expect a warm, friendly, genuine team who are a pleasure to work with. We're warm, genuine, trustworthy and will put your mind at ease.
2. A personal service
We appreciate that no 2 individuals are the same. The same can be said for house clearances. We provide a unique, person-centred approach to all house clearance projects. The project is focused around the needs of yourself and this will form the base plan of how we conduct the project.
We work on small to large house clearances, end of tenancy clearances, deceased estates, hoarders’ properties, garden/garage clearances, nursing home clearance and more. This hopefully gives you the confidence that we’re equipped with the house clearance and personal skills to complete your project to exceed your expectations.
3. Fully licensed
This is one of the most important points. We’ve written before about the risks of using an unlicensed house clearance company. If your belongings are fly-tipped and there is documentation that leads back to you, you could face up to a £50, 000 fine/12 months’ prison sentence.
Again, this is an important one. A professional house clearance company should have public liability insurance. This will protect them (and you) against any accidents/damage during the project.
5. Proper disposal of waste/ethical values
We always ensure that we do more than our bit for the environment. One of the key parts of our clearance process is segmentation. After this, we use our relationships with various charities, recyclers, upcyclers and scrapyards to ensure the avoidance of landfill. That’s our ethos.
6. Uniformed staff
A lot can be said for a professionally dressed team. Our team always look smart, consistent and are proud to wear their uniform. The uniform ensures that all employees are equal and equipped to undertake their job to the highest standard.
7. Not just a ‘man with a van’
We think the most important thing to recognise when you’re hiring a professional house clearance company is that we aren’t just a ‘man with a van’. We’re an ultra-professional service, with years of experience, who very much pride ourselves on the personalised experience we’re able to provide to every single customer.
We’re not just there for the removal, we’re there for the initial assessment/quote, segmentation, removal of items and everything in between.
