We have put together some of the most frequently asked questions our customers ask when enquiring about house clearances in Exeter. 

How much does a house clearance in Exeter cost? 

Our prices start from as little as £40 +VAT for single item clearances. This is based on 1 vehicle with 2 of the Busy Chaps team and an estimated load time of 15 minutes. However, as all house clearances are different it is best we speak to discuss your particular requirements.  

Are you able to do house clearances outside of Exeter? 

We cover the whole of the Devon and much of the rest of the South West, including Cornwall, Plymouth, Taunton, although we have taken on house clearance contracts as far afield as Bristol and Swindon.  

 What sorts of items can you clear? 

There is very little in a house clearance that we cannot deal with. Rubbish and waste, household fixtures and fittings, furniture, electrical items, white goods, clothing and bedding and just general household clutter can all be taken away. 

A close family member has died and it is too painful at the moment to deal with. Can you work with probate solicitors to have the house cleared? 

 At a very difficult time like this we can take part of the load off your mind by dealing directly with whichever agent you require to make sure the house clearance is done compassionately and effectively. If you send us the contact details for the solicitor we will be happy to contact them to set everything in motion.

We are able to offer a wide range of services including garden clearances, loft clearances, flat clearances, garage clearances and rubbish clearance to mention a few. We are also able to carry out office and commercial premises clearances, including shops, lock-ups, storage facilities and commercial yards.

Busy Chaps top 7 tips for preparing a house clearance

Carefully think about how much time you are going to need to complete the clearance and set aside enough time to get it done. If you don’t give yourself enough time it can quickly become a very stressful process. If you need help please give us a call and we can come and give you an estimate. 

The more notice we have the better, especially for really big whole house clearances. Once the booking is in the diary we can tweak the time required to complete the job once you have an estimate of the stuff you need us to clear. 

This can be one of the most difficult parts of a house clearance, but you have to remember why you started out on this process. Be ruthless, if you haven’t used an item for 6 months then it is unlikely that you really need it. It may well be better off in a new home or simply time for the bin. 

Remember that one persons junk is another’s treasure. If you think something may be of value set it to one side and we can let you know if it is saleable. We can knock the value of any items saved in this way off your bill once they have been auctioned. 

Once you have established exactly want you want to keep try to estimate how much stuff we need to clear. It doesn’t have to be exact, but it will really help us to give you an accurate quote and make sure we allocate enough vehicles and team member to the job. You can visualise it in anyway that makes sense to you, skip loads, boxes full, transit van loads, however you choose we will be able to work with it. 

We will be able to give you a final price and estimated time required to complete the job.  

You may want to lay down some sheets to protect you carpets and floor. Make sure our team can get easy access to your property and ensure there is somewhere for them to park. Put the kettle on, sit back and let us do the rest.
