Estate Clearance, What Happens to the Items You Can’t Sell?

When clearing a property I often get asked. ‘What happens to the items you cannot sell”? It is simply amazing how many items can be re-used.

At the moment we are hitting over 95% when it comes to recycling items. Most items are either sold direct to Antiques or Collectables dealers, sold through our regular auctions, sold to clients who have previously asked us to source items for them, sold for scrap or rags, used to fuel heating systems or simply donated to charities who help the homeless and those coming out of a refuge or similar establishment. The remaining 5% is recycled through approved recycling schemes.

On one day earlier this year we helped five desperate families in one day. They received, bedding, food, utensils, furniture, fridges, cooking items and clothes. We have even offered casual work to those who can work and they have assisted in clearing the items they need.

It is all a case of thinking out side of the box and we even recycle those boxes as well!!!

If you have a property to clear, items you no longer have use for or simply need a FREE P1050065initial valuation give call Nick on 01785 747325 or direct on 07890268004.

 

 

 

 

Estate Clearance, Where Do You Start?

I often get asked. ‘When you carry out a clearance, where do you start’?

First, I visit the client or the premises to be cleared. This visit is Free, well not totally Free that would be silly. I like to have a cup of tea whilst I am there.

Secondly, I ask the client to show me all of the property they are looking to clear. I get shown around the down stairs living area and the bedrooms. They often gloss over the bathroom and kitchen area. When I ask them if they have looked in the loft and is that part of the clearance I often get a blank stare, then panic appears in the eyes of the client. Yes they had forgotten about the loft. Not a nice place to go. Full of memories and 20160712_105043spiders. I then ask if there are garden sheds or outhouses, oh and what about the garage? Again they have a blank expression on their faces. It appears all of the valuable items are only kept in the house. Why would I want to look in the kitchen, bathroom, shed or garage?

Once I have taken a look at the complete layout of the property and ALL of the contents, yes even the loft with the spiders and memories, I give the client a comprehensive plan to clear the property and value and evaluate the contents.

Do you know what? In the kitchen of virtually every home in the land there is a rubbish drawer, in that drawer we often find precious metals or collectable items.

I recently viewed a property with a client. It was her Father property and he had recently passed away. In the back bedroom was a dressing table with costume jewellery on a display stand. The room had not been used for many years, since the death of the clients Mother in fact. After discussing the clearance options the client took the decision to clear the contents from the property herself. A couple of weeks later the client asked me to visit her at her home address to view items from her late Fathers house. The client had put the contents of the house into boxes and disposed of the furniture to the tip. The furniture would have realised between £500 and £1000 at auction!! But the client knew best.

After agreeing a price for the boxes I asked the all important question. “Is there anything else”? The reply “No”

I then enquired about the large amount of costume jewellery lying on the kitchen table. “It is going into the rubbish bin”. was the reply. “So if I offered you £5 could I have it”? A bit of a cheek I suppose but if you don’t ask you don’t get do you? “If you want. What would you do with it”? asked the client.

“Well firstly I would cash in the full sovereign. I would then sell the remainder at auction. I would expect to get about £300 back”. Came my reply. It sovstook the client at least a couple of minutes to comprehend what I had said and about 30 seconds to realise what a big mistake she was about to make.

Needless to say we agreed a fair price for the costume jewellery and the sovereign. I now have a client who will refer me with confidence to her friends and clients.
