We are Chapel and Chapel and we offer an array of clearance services in Rainham, Essex and Greater London. With over two decades of experience we are number one for all and any of your clearance needs. At the heart of everything we do is asset realisation. What his means to us is we value your house clearance by identifying any items we believe are saleable by way of retail or auction sale. What it means to you is your clearance may be free or we could even pay you. We believe we are unique in our field and hundreds of our clients would agree.

We have worked with many estate agents and provide them with a straightforward, flexible house clearance service. We realise there are often quick and unforeseeable deadlines in this area so we are adaptable to their requirements often at short notice.  We offer the option to remove carpets, curtains and fixtures such as fitted bedroom furniture and kitchens. We have operated our own public auction house for many years so are able to place suitable contents to public auction. Whatever purpose is in mind, whether re-selling or letting for bedsits to houses we are the solution to any house clearance need.

We also offer probate advice and have a complete understanding of the probate process and we are able to provide full probate valuations. Our auction house benefits this service as it provides an auditable paper trail. We have years of experience in dealing with solicitors and again in meeting their requirements.

How much does it cost? Is the question everyone wants to know. We treat every Rainham house clearance as unique because every clearance is different. We maximise value to minimise cost. Surprisingly however, quite often the house clearance is free as many homes have array of saleable items to offset the cost of a clearance. We take a closer look at any valuable items, the time it will take, larger items to be disassembled and the general amount of labour involved etc. We will give you a quote and discuss a mutually convenient date or any other concerns or requirements you might have. We always welcome any pictures to be e-mailed or text to us.

We clear almost anything and everything. We have cleared vehicles, greenhouses, caravans, sheds and much more over the years. We love a challenge no matter how big or awkward to get to, so if you think something can’t be cleared or moved let us know and we’ll find the right solution. We have undertaken many commercial clearances in Rainham over the years including cafes, offices and tyre centres to name but a few.  In fact commercial clearances usually hold more items of value and as we would treat a commercial clearance in the same way it still means an offset against the overall cost.

Our staff are fully trained and highly professional. We appreciate sometimes there are reasons you would like us to be low key. Our staff are courteous and polite but do not divulge any details to the ‘friendly neighbour next door’. We have in the past arranged for plain vehicles to be used when completing a clearance. If you have any concerns then don’t hesitate to tell us. We also realise that a houseclearance is often needed when a loved one passes away and it may be difficult to part with some items. Don’t worry we are always sensitive and flexible to your needs.

Our auction rooms have operated in Essex for many years and we hold regular auction sales for HM Revenue and Customs, Essex police and on behalf of Enforcement agents (formerly bailiffs).

Chapel and Chapel have a wealth of experience in retailing. Much of our stock comes in via our house clearance service. We are based in Essex with a 6000sq ft showroom. We have an on-line store as well and regularly sell through e-bay and Gumtree. We offer a buyback scheme to our customers whereby we loan money on various goods T.V.’s games consoles etc with an option to buy back or extend the option after 28 days. Combined together these two elements of our business give us a realistic insight into the value of items.

We work with landlords in Rainham who have had tenants abscond leaving waste furniture and effects at the property. Sometimes these properties are in apartment blocks where gaining access to site skips is nearly impossible. Chapel and Chapel can avoid that problem in fact we can handle any clearance no matter how difficult it may seem. Some of our clients are just downsizing homes and have plenty of older furniture and effects they no longer require in their new homes. Our rubbish clearance service suits this purpose well. We are ideally suited to those who wish to downsize.

Rainham is in a fantastic position as a gateway to central London, Essex and Kent. With such excellent travel links the population is increasing which in turn is fuelling the housing market. With recent development over the past few years many new homes are being built increasing both the sales and lettings market. Because of the ever increasing demand for housing, Chapel and Chapel have worked extensively with Rainham’s local Estate agents and Landlords in recent years.

We offer free advice and no obligation quotations. Our friendly team are happy to discuss whatever requirements you have from our range of services. All it takes is one call to solve any and all clearance needs.
