​How to Prepare for a House Clearance

If you’re ready to begin the process of your house clearance, you may be wondering where the best place to start is. Chances are you have a lot of belongings to work through before our Cambridge house clearances team can remove any unwanted items and dispose of them responsibly.

Whether you’re clearing out with a view to moving house, or you’re in need of a serious declutter, we provide house, flat, office and garage clearances across Cambridge and surrounding areas. Prior to carrying out any of our clearances, our team will get to know you and your requirements, ensuring we provide the best possible service to suit your needs. 

Here our house clearance specialists have listed a few steps to take should you be considering utilising our services. Feel free to get in touch for more information.

1. Decide what items you want to keep

You will of course have some items that you will want to keep forever. These useful, valuable or sentimental belongings can be put to one side, or perhaps into storage to be kept safe during the clearance.

This process can take a lot longer than you initially thought, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to sort through your belongings to make sure nothing is missed.

2. Separate your belongings

Once you have a selection of items you want to get rid of, you can sort these belongings into various piles that have various destinations.

A good way to do this is to have a colour-coded system. Anything you don’t want to keep can be categorised into rubbish (which our house clearance team can take care of), orange which could indicate items you hope to give to charity or family and friends, and green could be items that you want to sell.

We also recommend that if you have any electricals that you are hoping to dispose of, keep them to one side and our team of house clearance specialists will ensure they are disposed of properly.

3. Consider the environment

It is important to ensure you choose a method of disposal that is considerate to the environment. Did you know that if you pass your waste onto an unlicensed waste carrier that fly-tips, you could receive a big fine?

At Cambridge House Clearance, we are an Environment Agency registered waste carrier, offering you great peace of mind that your house clearance is being dealt with in the most responsible manner.

4. Call Cambridge House Clearance to receive a quote
