  • When clearing a property full of clutter how do you guys decide what to keep or throw?

    We have been trading for over a decade and have developed a good sense of what is disposable, resalable and what is recyclable, at the end of our house clearance service we will ask the customer to come along and assess left over items with us. The items that are worth keeping alive and not throwing away are either sold or sent to charities in the local area in Bournemouth.

  • What will happen to all of the old clothes after the house clearance?

    When we perform a house clearance we clear the entire house and sort through things as we go, clothes will be thrown into bags and labeled, this procedure is followed through on other effects such as shoes and blankets. We will either sell or give away clothes depending on the age and quality of goods.
