As a family, we didn't have a clue what to do with the family home after our father died. Paul met me at the house and was honest and open about costs. The clearance was carried out with the minimum of fuss - despite snow on the ground and temperatures never moving above freezing for the three days they were there. Paul and his team made what we thought was going to be a tortuous and difficult process easy. I could not recommend them highly enough."

- James Young

House clearance services

Professional house clearance

House clearances can be a daunting task, especially if you are dealing with a large property or have limited time.

Whether you are preparing for a move, dealing with the estate of a deceased relative, or simply looking to declutter your home, understanding what house clearances include can help make the process smoother and more manageable.

Professional house clearance companies are usually hired to carry out this task as it can be physically demanding and time-consuming. These companies have trained personnel and necessary equipment to handle everything from heavy furniture to delicate antiques.

What Are House Clearances?

House clearances involve the removal of household items from a property. This could range from furniture and appliances to personal belongings and waste materials. The process is typically carried out by professional clearance companies who have the necessary expertise and equipment to handle such tasks efficiently.

The need for house clearances often arises in various situations such as moving houses, after a bereavement, when downsizing, or during home renovations. Regardless of the reason, understanding what is included in this service can help you better prepare for it.

A house clearance is the process of removing all or specific items from a property. This could be due to various reasons such as the death of the property owner, relocation, renovation, or selling off unwanted items.

A Typical House Clearance Includes:


Assessment and Quotation

The first step in any house clearance is an assessment of the property. The clearance company will visit your home to evaluate the volume of items that need to be cleared. They will then provide you with a quotation based on this assessment.


Sorting and Organising

Once you’ve agreed on the terms, the clearance team will begin sorting through your belongings. They’ll separate items into categories such as those that can be sold, donated, recycled, or disposed of responsibly.


Removal and Transportation

After sorting out your items, the team will then remove them from your property. They’ll use appropriate vehicles and equipment to ensure safe transportation of all items – from bulky furniture pieces to delicate antiques.


Disposal or Recycling

The final step involves disposing of unwanted items responsibly. Most house clearance companies are committed to minimising waste and will recycle as much as possible. Items in good condition may be donated to charity shops, while others might be sold or recycled.

“attentive, respectful, kind, and went beyond expectations…

“Outstanding service. We were so happy with Paul and Abode Clearances – they did an excellent job – fast, organised, respectful, warm and friendly. We highly recommend them. We were in a situation where there was an enormous amount of stuff to clear, and we needed it done in a very short time frame. From the moment he walked in to give the quote until the last stuff was removed, Paul was attentive, respectful, kind, and went beyond expectations in his customer service. It was like having good friends helping us through a difficult time. We’re SO glad we chose Abode over others! A BIG Thank You, Paul and co – for everything!”

– Odille Remmert


Remember that every house clearance company may have its unique offerings and processes; therefore it’s essential to discuss your specific needs with them before commencing work. By understanding what house clearances include, you can ensure that you get the most out of this service and make your home management tasks less stressful.

The Financial Aspect of House Clearances

Do you get paid for a house clearance? The straightforward answer is no; typically, you don’t get paid for clearing out your own property. Instead, you pay a professional company to do it for you. The cost varies depending on several factors such as the size of the property, amount and type of items to be removed, location, and whether any items require special handling or disposal.


Offset some costs during the process

It’s essential to assess all your options and choose what works best for your situation, whether that’s hiring professionals or doing it yourself. While house clearances can be emotionally and physically taxing, they also give an opportunity for a fresh start. If you’re clearing out your own home or dealing with a loved one’s estate, take this chance to declutter and simplify and make some money along the way.
