House Clearances recently commissioned
by Solicitors, Estate Agents, Letting Agents
and individual clients in the York area.
updated 25/10/2017
Town or Country Clearance were commissioned by the
family to conduct a
deceased clearance from a first
floor flat in City Mills, Skeldergate, York. The property
was rented from York City Council and had to meet
their standards when handed back.

The major issue was the distance from the front door
to the roadside - 50 yards. This meant 100 yards had
to be covered for each armful of items plus we had to
walk down a flight of stairs from the flat and a double
flight outside.

The client had a lot of possessions in this one bed flat
We sort the items into various categories - items for
charities, items for auction, items for recycling (wood,
glass, metal, fabrics, etc) and items for landfill.  

The total load filled a Luton box van - it would have
easily filled more than two large skips.

Clients regularly send testimonials and the one below was sent by email.

Dear Mr. Hall,

Thank you for clearing my property and sending me the photos. My friend told me that he was very impressed by your work yesterday. Certainly, the photos show that you have
done a very good job at a time when I felt unable to cope. Things are going a lot better for me now that I have been at my son's house for 3 weeks, and I will now be moving to
Austria in the spring. I will put a cheque in the post for you tomorrow, so you should receive it on Monday or Tuesday.

Thank you once again,

Best Wishes,
Pauline Galna.

No two house  clearances are alike so
how can there a be fixed fee?            
There usually isn't.  
Companies quoting over the phone
for house clearance without
assessment often invoice at a higher
rate than initially quoted. Reason
given: more there than you stated or
they believed.

Expecting you to accurately say what
the house clearance entails allows
additions to the bill - YOU got it

Items of value are an important
factor. Some companies ignore them
and just quote a fixed fee.

WE want to value them and use the
value to reduce any fees. Because of
this our clients, on average, paid
lower fees than those charged by our

We DO make allowances for items of value
The truthful answer is maybe or maybe not

In any form of clearance we incur costs. These are labour, transport and we pay tipping fees.
We need to recoup these costs and make a profit.

In the majority of cases the second hand value of items reduces our fees.
a) the value exceeds the costs so we pay the client
b) the value equals the costs so we remove everything for free
c) the value is lower than costs but reduces the fee in an agreed way.

Of course there may be no second hand value so no fee reduction.

So the answer to the question is it depends on the size of property, its position, and many other factors
AND the quantity, quality and value of the items inside.
Without an assessment we can't determine the value of items so any telephone quote is meaningless.

We want to give you a
written binding quote so please ask us to attend for a free assessment.
