Finding a reliable, trustworthy and professional property clearance company is not as easy as you might think. Yes, it’s true that clearance firms are spouting out of the woodwork faster than you can say ‘Jack Robinson’, not all provide the most reliable of clearing services and may not deliver on their promise of a top-quality service for affordable rates. Sometimes the clearance services just don’t show up, or they turn up hours late. They are known as rogue clearance firms. Other times at the end of rubbish removal they’ll present you with an invoice, whose figure doesn’t match the rate you originally agreed upon! There are so many things to look out for before hiring house or office clearance services. Here are just some ways to ensure you employ a reputable clearance company.
Say goodbye to the yellow pages, as Internet search engines make finding whatever service you want ten times easier. All you have to do is type in the term Clearance or Rubbish disposal companies with your London postcode and a list of matches should appear on your screen. Now that’s the easy part. The harder, more arduous and tricky part is trawling through all the results and reading carefully the services and charges delivered by the waste disposal firms. Anyone can create a fancy website with today’s technology and flash software, so make sure you carefully inspect every detail on the clearance company’s profile. Also try looking for customer feedback online on various other reputable testimonial forums.
Protect the environment
Before signing on the dotted line employing the clearance services of a London based company, find out if they have all the necessary licenses and permits to conduct a safe and swift job. With so many companies and individuals now more environmentally aware, you might be wise to ask if the company carries out white goods recycling and if they recycle as much of the waste removed from you home as possible. You don’t want them just dumping all your old belongings, some of which could be salvaged, recycled and used again in manufacturing in the local landfill or skip.
Get organized first
It’s always imperative to first sort through all your belongings before hiring a company to tackle junk removal or waste disposal. In fact you may be able to save yourself some money by doing your own junk disposal if you notice you have very little that needs to be dumped. You can hire a man and van service and have your waste transported to the local recycling plant. Remember however that performing your very own waste removal can be tiring and not to mention time consuming. For any real larger scale domestic clearance needs stick to the professionals!
Cheap is not always the way to go
It’s true that most people are attracted to getting a bargain or a good deal, but when it comes to property clearance, you’ll need to look at more than just the price. Make sure the company can deliver on its promise of excellent quality for reasonable costs. If the price for waste removal or furniture disposal sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Also watch out for hidden fees. Make sure you get any quotation in writing and if you can get a recommendation from someone you trust about the company’s reliability!
If you’ve had enough of searching for a clearance company, as non seem quite able to meet your needs, then why not go solo and employ the help of family members or friends to help with your flat clearance or house clearance! This is not suggested lightly, for doing your own property clearance requires time, dedication and effort. Just make sure you’re up to the job before it’s too late to change your mind and you’re knee deep in that garage clearance!
