How to prepare in advance for a House Clearance?

House clearances can be quite a demanding task but making the effort to organise well in advance can go a long way. Proper preparation, along with the assistance of a good professional house clearance company, can make the entire process simpler and absolutely stress-free. There are a few things that you can do in advance before the clearance company steps in so as to make the task simple.

If you wish to part ways with some old stuff and it is still in a good enough condition to be reused or repurposed, you can always try to sell it privately. This can be achieved quite easily online via social media and auction websites or you can try your luck with a car boot sale. 

If you’re not bothered about selling them, you may wish to donate your unwanted belongings to charity, which is always a great option. There are many charities to choose from, with nationwide organisations and small, local charities accepting donations. This allows you to contribute to a cause that you may feel strongly about, as well as making quality items available to those who may otherwise not have access to them.

Once this is taken care of, you can segregate all your belongings that are to be moved. This makes the sorting and packing job much easier and safer, especially when it comes to fragile items.
If you need to get rid of certain things that cannot be salvaged, notify the clearance company well in advance. They usually have specific vehicles and equipment to make the process easier as well as the required permits which allow them to dispose of household items in the proper way.

Once you have decided on your preferred clearance company, it is always a good idea to inform them of any parking restrictions at your property, including whether it is paid or free.
Since house clearance can cause a lot of disturbance, it is also polite to let your neighbours know about it in advance.

Always ensure that you do not add tasks or contents on the spot once you have received the quote. In the case of any changes, let the house clearance company know as far in advance as possible.
If you have any specific requirements, such as storage for certain items, again let the company know in advance so that the necessary arrangements can be made.

Keeping these things in mind and setting up accordingly will greatly benefit both you and the clearance company employees, allowing the process to go smoothly.
