How much does a House Clearance Cost? is probably the most commonly asked question. There are of course many contributing factors such as access to the property, type of waste, age of the contents etc but we use a very simple formula:  Value of the contents minus cost of clearing the waste and emptying the house. So in answer to that question the answer is often 'A House Clearance costs nothing' as many homes have a good array of saleable contents to offset against the cost of clearing the house of waste and pereparing it for resale or relet. Of course we are able to estimate the cost of the house clearance should you want to email us some photographs of the rooms or we are happy to meet you at the Dagenham property to assess further the task in hand.

Dagenham House Clearance Case Study
January 2015

Dagenham house for clearance

As is the case with so many of our customers our client had decided that it was time to clear the property as an exchange of contracts was imminent and upon the Estate Agents advice it was time to progress matters further. We had alrteady been to view the House Clearance weeks prior and had already cleared some of the rooms so that whilst the agent was marketing the property it was still furnished yet tidy and furnished to give good perspective of room sizes. Some agents ask that the client has a House Clearance in this way where others prefer that a full house clearance is performed to leave all of the rooms empty. This is often the case when a client wishes to redecorate a property prior to resale.

The house clearance was fairly straight forward in the home as all of the waste had previously been cleared at stage one leaving just the furniture and effects that were kept to aid the visual elament of reselling the property. There were some key pieces that had been removed at stage one which I will show you below in a second. The larger pieces were essentially the furniture that denoted the purpose of the rooms for example a bed in the bedroom, a dining set in the dining room, sofe set in the living room so on and so forth. The house clearance stage 2 therefore was very straight forward in respect of the house as all of the items were of a saleable value.

Garage waiting to be cleared

Garage Clearances and shed clearances generally attract a cost to the overall House Clearance price. In our example here the garage was not kept traditionally for a car but more so for a lifetime collection of garden equipment, old furniture converted to storage cabinets and probably the largest collection of nuts and bolts in jam jars that we have ever seen. There was a lot of metal in the garage which of course allows us to make good use of our Environmental Agency scrap metal carrying licence. Most garages are at the front of the house making the clearance fairly straight forward however this one was at the back of the garden with the only access via the rear alleyway which in time had become too overgrown to allow vehicular access. We made a cost based decision to clear the alleyway to allow access as this would far outweigh the extra time that it would have taken to carry all of the waste through the garden and then through the house not to mention the potential mess that it would have made.

We are adept at making all of the decisions regarding the clearance for you anfd manage the whole project no matter how complex it appears. We keep our clients informed of any changes to the initial plan of the House Clearance but do not burdon them with having to make uncalculated decisions. We assess ourselves the best course of action and act accordingly.




As mentioned earlier we are keen to extract value in as much of the house clearance contents as is possible. This Dagenham House Clearancee had it's key furniture pieces removed at stage one. These pieces were then marketed on the client's behalf. Some were offered for sale at our Public Auction Rooms and other sold on a commission sale basis.

We are ourselves retailers so will always be happy to purchase the household contents from you and offeset this against the cost of the House Clearance however should you wish as our client did to take advantages of the many other services that we offer please do enquire.

We have a broad skillset in Asset Realisation and will be able to obtain the best prices for you taking into account and of course managing all aspects such as logistics and storage. At Chapel and Chapel we really are re-inventing the house clearance market.
