We were asked to quote for a house and garage clearance in Fleet. The clearance was being organised by a relative of the home owner.

The first step was to visit the property and take notes to consider the volume of waste to be removed and labour time to clear the property.

The relative discussed a trailer that was to be removed if possible. We suggested using a local Facebook page to advertise the trailer, which sold a few days later.

The property was 2 bedrooms, living room of furniture, garden shed and greenhouse to clear.

The quote was accepted. £660+vat (2 full van loads) additional 30 minutes loading time £45+vat with 2 mattresses as additional extras £30+vat each.

Tips that can help:

  • Donate clothing and bric-a-brac items to local charity shops.
  • Re-sell items and furniture using Facebook Marketplace, car-boot sale or eBay.
  • Organise items to be removed by boxing or bagging loose items. This will save with labour time.
  • Additional costing items often in a house clearance will include mattresses, fridges, POPs upholstered items and paid.
  • As a rule of thumb, an organised house is roughly 1 van per bedroomed house. A full single garage is often an extra van load.

Managing the clearance of the storage units

  • We cleared a van load of general waste. A mix of old signs, office furniture and general bulky items so they could access the archive boxes.
  • The customer was able to save money as we separated scrap metal from the general waste on site.
  • Invoicing over 5 years old was able to be shredded on-site with the use of a large lorry fitted with an onboard shredder. Shredding on-site enables a quick turnaround as paper is loaded into a wheelie bin, which is then tipped into the shredder by the collection operative. The customer was also reassured the documents were shredded securely as it was performed in-front of him.
  • Paper was recycled 100%, metal was recycled 100%, general waste was sent to an waste to energy transfer station.
  • Over 3 tonnes of general waste and metal was taken and just over 5 tonnes of paper was shredded on-site.
  • Waste transfer notes Certificate of destruction was provided for compliance
