House Clearance London
All throughout London, people are looking at spare rooms or even living rooms and surveying the clutter with a feeling akin to despair. How on earth are they going to get rid of all that junk? Even worse, how are they going to get rid of all the junk within a short timeframe?
Just to make matters worse, the times when people most often have to clear their whole house of bits and pieces – which aren’t always junk and rubbish – are times that are a bit emotionally fraught. At one end of the spectrum, someone might merely be moving house. Not that it isn’t stressful enough, but that is on the least emotionally difficult end of the spectrum. The worst and the most emotionally difficult time when you have to get gear out of a house in a limited timeframe is when someone in the family has died, and the issue of cleaning up after whoever it was faces everybody (more on that below).
The good news is that you don’t have to despair, panic or run around in circles doing a headless chicken impression while you wonder what you’re going to do, where you’re going to take it all, what’s rubbish and what’s not. You have already got enough to deal with if you’re in any of the most common situations when house clearance is necessary. Topwasters is here to help!
We are licensed waste handlers and dealers, and we can ensure that everything – and we mean everything – gets out of that house and off to where it needs to go. No matter where you’re located in the Greater London Metropolitan Area, or what sort of items need to be removed, we can take it away from you – responsibly, quickly and efficiently.
We use a simple pricing system based on weight and/or van capacity (more details on our pricing page). However, for a more precise estimate, have a talk to us, send us pictures of what you need removed and we’ll give you a better idea.
Trash And Treasure
When you’ve got a whole house (or flat or cottage or apartment or…) to clear out, some things will be just plain rubbish and other things will be suitable for a new home after a stint inside the second-hand dealer’s shop. Other things can be recycled. But what comes into what category? Is that child’s bike too rusty and is it rubbish, or is it still useable safely by another child? If it’s broken, is it suitable for recycling? It can take a lot of time to sort through everything and decide what needs to go where – and even more time to take things to the correct place.
Because we’ve been in the home clearance and rubbish removal business for quite a few years now, we are familiar with all these questions and we are experts at sorting out the trash from the treasure. If you’re not sure, just ask us. Or we can even do the job of sorting for you, for a small extra fee. Rest assured that we’ll make sure that nothing valuable gets thrown away and that some unfortunate second-hand dealer or charity shop isn’t lumbered with a bunch of useless junk!
End Of Tenancy House Clearance
If you’ve moved house a few times in your life, like most of us have, have you ever fantasized about just taking the stuff you want and leaving all the rest behind? However, most of us know that this wouldn’t be very kind or responsible. The landlord, for example, might get a bit snippy about finding their rental property full of your old broken chairs and ancient wellies.
Well, the good news is that Topwasters allows you to do just that: take what you want and leave the rest. We’ll do the work of clearing out all the unwanted items from every single room in the house (and in the garage and the garden shed as well) so that you can get on with the task of cleaning the old place (if that’s what’s required) and settling into your new place.
You can also call on our home clearance services if you’ve just moved into a new property and you discover that the previous owner or occupant hasn’t got rid of everything. The same applies if you are the landlord and your previous tenants left a whole lot of bits behind them. Just say the word (well, more than a few words – the more details you can give us, the better) and we’ll take it away. We’ve even got same day rubbish removal services available London-wide. This means that you can get that house ready for you to live in, or ready for a new tenant.
Clearing out a house after a relative has died isn’t easy on the emotions. You and your other relatives have probably had a quick look through Grandpa’s old things and taken out the items that are valuable and the ones that have real sentimental value. However, there are probably a whole lot of other things left behind. Maybe you’ve ensured that the contents of Grandpa’s drinks cabinet have been divvied up among the relatives, but what about the cans of baked beans and the sausages in the freezer? Someone’s taken the photo albums, but what about the National Geographic collection? The quilt made by Grandma has been bagged by Auntie, and Grandpa’s ties were useful for the teenage cousins who needed a tie that wasn’t a school tie for the funeral, but what about Grandpa’s tatty towels?
There’s a certain emotional pathos about the shabby everyday items left behind when someone has died. The battered pair of trainers waiting by the door that won’t be going for that little walk around the block any more. The jar of favourite marmalade that was bought but didn’t get enjoyed. For a lot of people, dealing with these household items can be quite hard. In the case of odds and ends that were used but are now rubbish, it’s even harder. Throwing away those old socks with the holes in the heels feels somewhat disrespectful. But you know in your head it’s got to be done, even if your heart howls that sending Grandpa’s newspaper with the half-done crossword is a form of betrayal.
The Topwasters team sympathises with you and we know that grief hurts. However, we also understand that there is a need to clear out all those things that are no longer needed. We don’t have the same emotional attachment to items that you do, so we can get the job of clearing out the house done quickly and efficiently. We won’t be hesitating, torn by feelings of doubt, when faced with that battered collection of magazines. We will take the good items to a dealer so that they can find a new life in a new household, the recyclables to the right depot where they can be processed, and everything else to the waste handling plant. You can rely on us to handle it.
If you live out of the city but your late relative lived anywhere inside the circle of the M25, calling in our professional estate clearance services is the ideal way to handle things, especially if you are pushed for time.
Garages, Attics And More
Sometimes, you don’t need the whole house cleared out but just a room – especially if that room has been filled with clobber and clutter for far too long! We can take away all that junk in the attic or the garage or the basement or the spare bedroom so that it can become useful space again.
When you’ve made the decision to spring clean your possessions and get rid of clutter, it’s best to act quickly. Just as well we’ve got same day house clearance services available.
