Clearing out a loved one's home can be an emotional and very daunting task, especially if you are not local to the area. Our professional service is here to help you at this difficult time.
We have had a lot of experience with people with similar worries and concerns about how to proceed. We have compiled a few ideas to help you to deal with some of the worries that you may have.
What should I do when clearing an estate?
Executors / family members can:
Ensure the property is secure.
If there is a will, respectfully follow any of the deceased last requests.
Gather together any valuable items, important paperwork or keepsakes.
Put aside items left to the beneficiaries for collection.
After all legal requirements have been met, you may feel it is the right time to go ahead with the clearance of the estate.
Bring in a reputed licensed clearance service info to get a free estimate for a complete house clearance.
alternately sell items or arrange a collection for donation then call a skip service to dispose of remaining items.
Power of Attorney (LPA)
When acting on behalf of someone close to you and making difficult but necessary decisions in order to improve that persons circumstances, it may eventually become apparent that the need for full time social care is required.
A property owned or rented may then also need to be cleared except for personal items and furniture that would have to be relocated to the new residence or care facility near by. Our service will be able to assist with both clearance and relocation, saving the need to contact additional services and ensuring a smooth transition.
If you are relocating to a smaller home, or if a family member is moving into residential accommodation, we are able to remove the items that are no longer required, and also, help you with re-location of the furniture that you wish to take to your new residence.
Hoarded Houses & Buildings

Please do not hesitate in calling us, we have experience in dealing with these situations and will be happy to help in any way we can.
