How To Choose A Quality House Clearance Company

It’s not until you find yourself staggering down the barrel of a major house clearance in London that you realise just how gigantic an undertaking it can be.  Whether it’s moving home, trying desperately to free up some space or simply going about an essential de-cluttering process, house clearances are the kinds of things we all have to tackle from time to time. Nevertheless, with limited space to play with and anything but an abundance of time, these are understandably the kinds of jobs that get put off and put off.

The good news of course is that right now, hundreds of house clearance companies in and around the capital are ready and waiting to step in and offer a helping hand.  Nevertheless, not all such businesses are operating at the same high level and nor can all promise of the same value for money. As such, if you choose to hire a house clearance company for any given purposes, it’s a good idea to be proactive when it comes to ensuring they are in fact the right people for the job.

Here is a quick look at just a few of the important boxes to tick before going ahead and hiring them:

1 – Professionalism

First of all, it’s a good idea to let your gut be your guide when it comes to those all important first impressions. When looking to hire a business such as this, chances are you’ll be relying on the web to find them and help you make your mind up. As such, the website the business uses to represent itself online will usually tell you all you need to know about the way they do business. Some present themselves professionally, while others run the most unimpressive and uninspiring websites imaginable – the latter being the bracket to avoid for obvious reasons.

2 – Insurance

Never under any circumstances give even a moment’s thought to hiring a house clearance company that isn’t comprehensively insured and permitted to be doing what it is they are doing. In order to enter your home, handle your property and take care of all required transportation, extensive insurance policies are required across the board. Suffice to say, there will always be those who flout UK law and regulation when it comes to insurance requirements – these are the businesses you really do not want to be dealing with. It should be pretty obvious by looking at their website whether they are insured and to what extent, but feel free to ask if you are in any way unsure.

3 – Attitude to Recycling

Something else to look into is exactly what kind of attitude the clearance company has with regard to recycling. Now more than ever, it’s of crucial importance for clearance companies to not simply give a nod to the idea of recycling, but to be 100% committed to the cause. The reason being that not only is recycling of absolute paramount importance to the country in general, but no less than 80% or even as high as 90% of all household waste and junk can to some extent be recycled or reused.  You can also interpret their attitude toward recycling as a mark of their professionalism.

4 – Experience

A quick point but important point nonetheless, it’s never a bad idea to make all necessary efforts and checks to ensure you work with a company that has been in business for some time. There’s a fine art to house clearances when it comes to getting the job done not only in the fastest and most convenient manner possible, but also the safest and most affordable. In this instance, the longer they have been in business, the better.

5 – Price Promises

Last but not least, there are so many of these businesses on the market today that to operate without offering at least some kind of price promise is largely unheard of.  Of course it’s simply common sense to be very wary of those businesses that seem to be offering prices that are far too good to be true, but in terms of backing services provided with low price guarantees, this is something that should be expected as standard.
