To avoid any misunderstanding, while we provide charity house clearance services, we are not a charity ourselves and should not be taken to be one. Essex House Clearances is a small local business which aims to make a profit in order to pay wages (and survive!). We do sell a percentage of any saleable items we recover in order to ensure profitability but, unlike many house clearance businesses, we do not operate second-hand shops and so we try to donate items to charity where possible to avoid storage costs. Aside from our own personal preferences, donating items to charity (or individuals in need) helps us too because it reduces the recycling charges we pay, which also helps us to keep our clearance fees as low as possible.
House clearances, for any reason, are rarely happy occasions and we try our best to be as unobtrusive and felxible as possible. If you don’t want to visit the property or can’t due to other commitments we’re happy to work around that, dealing with agent or solicitor you are using, or whoever you have chosen as a keyholder for the property. We are accustomed also to clearances in care and retirement homes and know exactly what is required from them in terms of how we operate.
In accordance with UK legislation, Essex House Clearances are fully licenced by the UK Environmental Agency as waste carriers / brokers. If you’re not sure why it’s important to deal with properly licenced clearance companies, please see this page for more information.
