If you are planning a house clearance, no matter the circumstance, you may be wondering how you can make some money from your unwanted belongings. As well as giving you a piece of mind and reclaiming your space, clearing your house could also potentially be profitable. In this article, we will be taking a look at some recommended ways that you can make money during your house clearance.
Decide What to Clear, Sell & Donate
During your house clearance, our team will aim to help you sort through your belongings and categorise them. Depending on whether you are keeping, selling or disposing of items, we will label them with coloured Post-its. This will signal to our team what will be happening with your items and whether they need to be cleared.
Sell Your Unwanted Items
During this process, you will be able to take stock of what you are disposing of, and whether it would be worth money once sold. Our clearance services can assist you in disposing of unwanted items, while allowing you to sell or donate your other belongings. Selling your items online can be a great way to make some money and reclaim your space.
Online sites such as Facebook Marketplace, Vinted, Ebay, Gumtree, or local Facebook groups are the perfect platforms for selling your unwanted belongings. All you will have to do is list said item, describe it in simple detail and decide on a fair price – the site does the rest. By sorting through the items that you want to dispose of versus the ones that may be worth selling, your house clearance could definitely earn you a pretty penny!
Donating Items You No Longer Need
When sorting through your items, you may find that you are looking to donate some of them. Some charities will pay for things such as clothing and furniture, as long as they are of good quality. Particularly if you have some high-end designer or even vintage clothing pieces, you can take them to pre-loved agencies in exchange for money. Technology, such as old game consoles, TVs and mobile phones can also be taken to high street electronics and entertainment specialists as well.
Scrap Metal & Rubbish
Did you know that we clear away any domestic and commercial scrap metal, and we can even offer you cash back for them? That’s right! During house clearances in London, another effective way you could make money is from scrap metal.
When our team is clearing homes, we are very likely to remove metallic objects which can typically include steel, copper or brass. If we find non-ferrous metals which are unwanted by the homeowner, we can offer cashback. Regardless of how much scrap metal you have, whether that be a kilo or a tonne, we can weigh the metal in front of you, and agree on a price. If you have any aluminium rims, bright copper wire, lead, stainless steel, household wires, or copper boilers lying around, and you are not looking to keep them then you can speak to one of our team members about receiving some cashback for these items.
Valuing Your Current Belongings
If you are requiring a probate clearance, our experienced and compassionate team can help. A probate clearance is typically required by most executors, solicitors and administrators when it comes to dealing with a property, where the contents need to be removed. During the probate process, a probate clearance is usually the next step once the valuation and report have had a thumbs up from HMRC. Not only do our probate clearances meet all the requirements, whether set by administrators, solicitors, executors or private individuals, but we can also offer you a piece of mind during this period.
Our aim is to make the probate process as smooth sailing as possible. We can pick up the keys from either you or a solicitor if you are too busy to meet at the property, and we can provide a one-off cleaning service once the building has been cleared. This will ensure it is ready to sell, or change hands. We can even take pictures of the property to ensure you are both happy and satisfied with our work.
During one of our probate clearances, we can also offer a full valuation service, looking at all the potential valuables such as jewellery which are in the property. Our insurance policy provides full liability cover for all of the services we undertake. We understand the reasoning behind needing a probate clearance can be emotional, and in turn, extremely stressful. As well as taking away the worry or clearing out the space, we can value the items left, and tell how much they would be worth.
