How It Works

PETERBOROUGH HOUSE CLEARANCE offer a full and part house clearance service within a 50 mile radius of Peterborough PE2. We can clear houses, flats, garages, sheds, lofts, offices, shops, and pubs. Whatever your requirements are in clearing we can help.

Every clearance is different, so we need to visit the property to give you a free ‘no obligation’ quote, tailored to your needs.

Unlike some clearance companies, we possibly will buy items that we feel have a resale value. These must be in good condition and full working order.

We also recycle as much as possible, this reduces the amount going in to landfill.

There is no set price for undertaking a clearance, but we use a fairly simple procedure :

1. We call out to give you a free ‘no obligation’ quote (within a 50 mile radius of Peterborough)

2. We assess the value of any contents that we are able to resell.

General guide – we buy good quality modern, vintage, antique furniture, & modern appliances, soft furnishings must have 1988 fire and safety label attached.

3. We assess the items that we would have to dispose of and work out a cost for providing this service. We can remove ALL items if required. This will usually work out cheaper than hiring a skip and we do all the hard work!

We calculate our disposal quote by the cubic metre of volume.

4. We provide a quote which is valid for 90 days, this then gives you 2 options:

The first option is a cash price that we pay you, to buy the items we are able to resell – Please remember we pay a wholesale price for items     roughly 30- 40% of a retail price.

The second option is a quote based on the wholesale value of the items we would purchase, minus the cost of disposing of the remaining contents. The  final figure may end up with us paying you, or you paying us. It depends entirely on the value / quantity / volume of the contents.

Please remember a house clearance service provide, Vehicles, transportation, staff, labour and packaging materials. We then have to pay for disposal of your unwanted items at a commercial waste transfer depot and we have to segregate your waste, we are currently charged at the moment £130.00 per tonne + Vat

Unusable electrical goods / fridges / freezers / crt monitors / televisions incur a £12.00 + Vat charge per item.

Items we do not clear – garden green waste, hazardous / chemical waste / tyres / asbestos / large quantities of oil / paints.

Minimum requirement for call out quote is 6 items of furniture / appliances.

We do not clear or buy individual items.

5. You decide what option you want to go for, if any. If you would like us to carry out your clearance we can arrange a date for this to be done. We usually need a week’s notice, but can work to a shorter deadline sometimes if required.

There really is no set price for a clearance and we have to view the contents of the property in person to give a quote. We will always quote for a job, no matter how big, small or difficult the job.

We ensure that we recycle as much as possible but what does have to be disposed of is done safely at a commercial waste and recycling facility.

To carry out this work companies need to be licensed waste carriers.
