The Costs


The cost of a clearance varies for different reasons, size of property and the amount to be cleared being the obvious ones.

A general guide of how the cost is calculated.

  1. If the property contents have no resale value, is cluttered or verminous, then we have to make a charge to cover our labour and costs.
  2. If some of the contents have a small resale value, we would offset this against the clearance cost.
  3. If the property contains antiques or collectables which have a high resale value, then we will agree on a price that we are both happy with and pay you for the contents. We always hope to pay you more than would be achieved in an auction room.

We believe our rates to be extremely competitive when you consider doing it yourself - hiring a skip will cost between £160-£200 + permit, and you may need several of these if you have large or bulky items, such as sofas and beds.  There are also many items that are not allowed in skip, tv's, fridges, freezers are just a few of them, and his does not include your time or equipment needed to complete the job as well.

Hi Dave

I just wanted to say thanks for clearing out the house and cleaning it up as well - it looks great.

The only other quote I received was a flat rate based on the size of the house which would have been heading towards £1000, so it was fantastic that you offset the cost of clearance with the value of some of the items for resale so I didn't pay out anything.

Dear Dave
I just wanted to write a note of thank you for your work in clearing my late Mother's house recently. As someone living in Canada it was so great to find someone easy to deal with over long distance and who was so accommodating to my tight schedule. I also really appreciated your careful, friendly and polite service in the actual clearance. It made what is a rather painful experience into something simple and effortless. I hope some of the items have found a good home. I would be happy for you to offer my name and email as a recommendation to any potential customers.
Hope you are well and surviving the cold. I completed the sale of the house today which is good.
With thanks and best wishes

Many thanks for your services on the 26th April.  A most refreshing service in these times, quick, efficient and honest and on time, leaving me free to attend to other matters on the death of a relation.  Apologies for the missing items between quote and collect, I have since located same and they appear to have been removed quite innocently by a neighbour.

I would recommend your services to others without hesitation.

Yours most thankfully P B

I write to thank you for the excellent work you did for me in clearing my late father's home.

Dealing with the death of a parent and having to make the necessary arrangements, manage the estate, inform other family members and friends etc is quite stressful and traumatic, so to find someone like you that could be extremely flexible and fit in with my schdule and take away the whole pressure of managing the clearance of the property was a huge relief.

That you did this with no fuss what-so-ever, quickly and on time and actually at a considerably lower price than the initial quote, which was already competitive, was marvellous and much appreciated.

I will not hesitate to highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a house clearance.

Thank you very much.

I would just like to drop you a note to say how much I appreciated your service in clearing my father's house.

Your attention to detail (such as calling in to discuss on the same day I had telephoned you) and then arriving exactly on time for the clearance, as agreed, was very professional.  However it was the personal touches, and the friendliness of your team, that mattered on the day, plus the fact that the end result was exactly what we had agreed.

Your service was excellent and very accommodating, and I have no hesitation in recommending you to other people, and by all means pass on my contact details for reference.

All the best

Davids House Clearance offered a very prompt reliable service.  Upon me requesting a bungalow clearance, the bungalow was cleared within a few hours, and in a very quick effective manner.  The place was hoovered up after being emptied.  I could strongly recommend using these people.  Nothing was a problem and all done at a very competetive price.
