Our team of clearance experts are here to offer you ongoing support and guidance during this potentially overwhelming time. With so many things to think about, we want to help you minimise any feelings of stress and ensure that putting your property on the market goes smoothly. In this article, we will be talking you through the steps of a house clearance and giving you our top reasons why you should hire a professional team to help you with this process.
How Does House Clearance Work?
According to The Simplicity Habit, ‘moving is listed as one of the top ten stressors in life’. As well as making a move less time-consuming, hiring a team of house clearing professionals can make the process much simpler. Not only will they move the heavier items, they can also dispose of any hard to get rid of belongings. But, how does a house clearance work?
Step 1: Assessment
A house clearance company will first assess the home and provide a quote based on the size of the property, and how many items will need to be cleared. During this stage, we can offer a free no-obligation quote, which details exactly how long the clearance will take and all the costs involved in the process of your house clearance in Surrey. If you have any questions during this step, we are only a phone call away – our team would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
Step 2: The Removal Of Your Belongings
After we have assessed the space, and your clearance date comes around, we will focus on the next step in the process, which involves removing the belongings from your home. We can help you remove all unwanted or unused items, no matter their size. During this stage, we will move around the space and assign coloured post-it notes to each item to alert the team to what is happening with said belongings. This will ensure a speedy, and efficient way to clear your space.
Step 3: Responsible Disposal
After we have cleared the unwanted items, we also work to responsibly dispose of them. Any item that has been marked for donation, recycled or binned from the property will be done so in an environmentally conscious way, which will be in line with the council’s guidelines.
Step 4: Cleaning Services
Once our team has cleared the property, it is also recommended to clean the space. As well as offering clearance services, our team can also clean the space and ensure that it is completely ready for the next occupant, or to be listed on the market for viewings.
4 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Professional Clearance Company
Now that we know what a house clearance involves, it’s important to consider the benefits of hiring a professional clearance company rather than trying to take on the burden of clearing your home by yourself. Here are four reasons why hiring a professional clearance company near you could be a great alternative option.
- Helps To Declutter Your Home
When it comes to selling your property, it’s all about making it more attractive to potential buyers. A house clearance can help you get rid of any unwanted items which can in turn, highlight the space of your property. By clearing the space, you can create a more neutral environment, which can further entice buyers. It is recommended to clear away any personal belongings you may have. Family photos and personal deco can prevent potential buyers from imagining themselves living in the space.
Not to mention, by clearing out your home ahead of time, you can also sort through all of our personal belongings at your own pace. Before clearing your home, it’s important that you take stock of what you own, and look at what you may want to keep, sell, donate or dispose of. Here at Greenleaf Clearance, we understand that clearing out a property can be time-consuming and laborious. As professional house clearance service providers, we can save you both time and effort. We are a family-run business, who offer professional and punctual services. Our team is ready and waiting to remove the stress that arises when clearing out your home, allowing you to focus on the other aspects of the selling process.
- Increasing The Value Of Your Property
By having a clear home during the selling process, you could potentially increase the value. A more cluttered space can take away from the size of your property. Empty and clear rooms are much more likely to make the home feel bigger and more open. By removing all the heavier items, you can truly showcase the best selling points of your property. By taking away any unnecessary furniture, you can highlight the beautiful flooring, big windows, and how much space the home holds. As well as offering house clearance services, we can also assist when it comes to clearing furniture. We can clear a long list of bigger items, such as:
- Tables and chairs
- Beds and mattresses
- Workshop equipment
- Kitchen goods; microwaves, ovens, fridges, freezers
- Technology; TVs, records, DVD players, video recorders, monitors

- Compliance with Regulations
If you are planning on moving home, you will most likely be looking to get rid of a few items that you no longer want or news in your new space. As mentioned previously, clearing your home is a great way to sort through all your belongings. If you have items that you are looking to get rid of, it can be difficult to fully understand the environmental issues that arise when disposing of them.
Professional house clearances companies can manage everything when it comes to discarding items safely and legally. Here at Greenleaf Clearance, our fully-licensed team is insured to undertake and dispose of common household items. We hold an Environment Agency Waste Removal Licence, allowing us to transport your waste for appropriate disposal based on the item’s material.

- Cleaning Your Home Before Selling It
Having a clear space means that keeping it clean is made much easier. When it comes to putting your house on the market, you will naturally want to make it as enticing as possible for potential buyers. Clutter can make it more difficult for viewers to move around your property, which can disrupt the overall flow of the house. Clearing your home can remove any unnecessary items, which can make all of the space feel more inviting.
After your space has been cleared, we would recommend enlisting our cleaning service. Often after one of our clients has requested a clearance service, the next step is typically to clean the space as well.
