Make your House Clearance Easy


It is a well known fact that organising and performing your own house clearance can cause your stress levels to go through the roof.

It is for this reason that many people nowadays are turning to professional house clearance companies to take the stress away.  Below we have listed a few tips to help plan and execute your house clearance with the minimum amount of stress.

Firstly you need to work out how much time you have to complete your house clearance.  Proper planning will make sure that the house clearance process runs smoothly and generally you will need to allow around ½ a day for each room that you need cleared.  Remember that allowing yourself more time than you may need can be invaluable.

Once you have done this you can then begin to decide what you want to keep and what you want to throw away.  This is a very important stage as you will need to go through all of your possessions and decide what you want to keep and what you can give away, sell or have cleared.  A simple way to keep track of your sorting is to label your items, the easiest system to use is a traffic light system.

Red = House clearance company

Orange = Items to be sold/given away

Green = Items you want to keep

You will need to be pretty ruthless during this stage and only use green labels for items that you definitely want to keep.

Once you have labelled everything you can start to move items around so that all items are grouped together according to your labelling system.  It is a good idea to start with the items that you want the clearance company to take and leave the green items until last so you have more space to move around and can be gentle with the items you want to keep.
