Free House Clearance

Clearing a property can be an exhausting and stressful experience. We can provide valuations for auction followed by a full house clearance. It can be surprising what items are saleable and having a valuer visit the premises to list the items of value allows family members and interested parties to make decisions about what items to sell or keep. Once items have been taken or consigned for auction we are able to offer a full clearance service leaving the property empty, swept and hovered and ready for estate agents or the next occupants.
Please contact us for further information, advice or to make an appointment for a no obligation valuation.
