How much will I pay for House Clearance services?

Need to call in a professional to declutter your home but wondering how much it’ll set you back? Read our handy guide to find out how much a house clearance specialist costs in the UK.

What is House Clearance service?

A house clearance service will manage the removal of unwanted items from a property. There can potentially be many different types of house-clearance services depending on the exact service type that the customer requires. 

Many people require house clearance services if they are preparing a property for sale or rent. Another common example of using house-clearance services is when people decide to let go of outdated items kept in storage for years. 

House clearance is performed by professional companies that enable you to get rid of unwanted items from your house without worrying about where to dispose of your items. They’ll know how to dispose of hazardous items such as electrical waste, which may not be safe to simply throw in the bin. 

Why do you need House Clearance services?

Some extra space around the house is always a great idea! It enables the house’s occupants to feel less suffocated and tied down. Even if a space is very large, it can end up feeling cramped and claustrophobic due to there being an unreasonable amount of clutter in the house. 

But hauling your items from one place to another can be tricky, to say the least - it’s time-consuming and physically demanding. Hiring a clearance service means the issue is quite literally taken out of your hands, so you can sit back and relax. 

How much does House Clearance cost in the UK?

House-clearance companies have a few different ways in which they can choose to bill their clients. Here’s a quick look at how much you can expect to pay if you’re planning on getting house clearance services:

What affects the price of House Clearance in the UK? 

The cost of a house clearance service will change depending on a few key factors including: 

  • Project’s complexity level 

  • Project’s size

  • Number of staff 

  • Disposal costs of items

  • Day selected for removal

Project’s complexity level

The level of complexity of the project will affect the price that you will need to pay for house clearance. For example, if a customer requests complete removal of all contents from their property, that will most definitely cost them much higher than a relatively simple job such as furniture removal from a particular room.

Project’s size

Naturally, large properties will account for higher costs for customers. A small apartment, for example, will cost somewhere around £80 and a large house can run you upwards of £320 plus VAT.

The number of staff required for the job

If you require more items to be shifted away from your home, the job could require more than an individual or a standard-sized team. In such a case, prices will increase depending on the number of staff that would be required for the job.

Disposal costs of items

Items like electronics need to be properly categorised as electric waste and need to be treated accordingly. Similarly, different items have different ways in which they can be disposed of, each with a different cost involved. Items with high disposal costs can increase the price of the overall house-clearance job.

The day selected for the removal job

If you want to hire house-clearance services on a weekday, the costs involved would likely be lower than what you would have to pay if you wanted the job done on a weekend or a public holiday.

Is hiring a House Clearance Service worth the cost? 

Absolutely! Hiring a house clearance service means the decluttering of your home will be a seamless and efficient process, without you ever having to lift a finger.
