Chelmsford Property Clearance

vases, household items and furniture always wanted

Chelmsford property clearance services, better known as Essex House Clearances, provide clearance services for both residential and commercial properties. If you need to clear a property prior to sale, occupation or letting, we are the people to call.

A locally based owner-operated business, we offer property clearance services in the Chelmsford area, including Chelmsford, Boreham, Great Baddow, Chelmer Park, Writtle, Broomfield, Springfield and also most of surrounding Essex. If your property isn’t in the Chelmsford region, click here to see the areas we cover. We are of course fully licenced waste carriers.

We perform house clearances and property clearances for many different reasons, but with similar objectives. After each property clearance we leave it empty, ready for sale or occupation. Depending on your requirements we will clear the property of any unwanted furniture and other household effects, clear garages, sheds, gardens and even remove carpets and curtains if needed, leaving it ready for the next occupier. In the case of commercial property we can also remove unwanted fittings, stock and equipment.

A large percentage of our work involves a property clearance after the death of a family member, often called probate clearances. In such cases we offer as much help as possible, operating with absolute discretion and compassion. We’re flexible and are happy to work with your appointed agents if required.

We can deal with a property clearance after an illegal occupancy or abusive tenancy, where more often than not ‘everything must go’ and subject to availability can also offer an optional cleaning service, to ensure the property is left clean and tidy.

Chelmsford Property Clearance

If you’d like a quote for a property clearance, the first step is to get in touch to request a quote for the necessary work. We’ll then organise a mutually convenient time for one of our team to visit the property and assess what needs to be done. We’ll then provide you with a simple no-obligation quote for the clearance. As a general rule, bookings are available within 5-6 working days once a quote has been accepted.

Limiting waste

During the course of most property clearances we come across furniture and other items that are still good enough quality to be used. We don’t throw them away. Any clothing is bagged and donated to one or more of the charities we support, who will then sell them. We do the same with furniture and general household effects, though there are occasionally limitations (soft furnishings must have fire certificates attached, etc). During the covid lockdowns and restrictions most charities have been obliged to sit on large quantities of stock and been unable to sell it, but we’re all hoping this will improve soon.

We don’t deal in second-hand furniture, but we may consider buying unwanted furniture if we feel it has a genuine resale value, which may help to reduce the costs of your property clearance. In most cases, we prefer to donate, as we don’t have time to get involved in selling ourselves. It should be noted that most charities only accept items that are genuinely in good enough condition to sell in their shops.
