How does it work?

Our House Clearance Service is undertaken by our trained, professional staff and volunteers who offer a quality service at competitive prices. 

Our dedicated team will clear property of any size with every property receiving the same level of care and respect. The service is tailored to your needs and you can have as much or as little taken away as you wish.

Please note this is a chargeable service. Our House Clearance team will assess your property on an individual basis and provide a personal quote based on the level of clearance you require. 

The charge for this service covers some of our costs, including the disposal of unsalable items. Any profit from items sold within our shops or online, as well as the income from recycling, goes directly to help local people face incurable illness and bereavement. 

We also are able to Gift Aid any item you and your family donate to us through the clearances, and by doing so you can help us raise more money in the process.

The fee will depend on the size of the property, amount of items for removal, and the proportion of saleable items. 

We are happy to liaise with a third party – solicitors and estate agents – and can collect keys from them in order to view and clear properties.

What’s included?

• We will pack and remove all saleable items from the property.

• Saleable items will be resold in our St Helena shops so that preloved items are re-homed. 

• We will recycle as many unsaleable items as we can, before disposing of anything that is left.

• We don’t just clear houses, we also clear Care Homes and offices. 

• We also offer clearance of lofts, garages, sheds, and outhouses if required.

• We will accept white goods, washing machines, fridge freezers, dishwashers etc., providing they are disconnected first.

• We will accept electricals except ovens wired into the mains

• For an additional fee we will thoroughly vacuum, wipe all surfaces – including skirting boards – and leave the property clean and fresh for potential new owners or tenants to view.

Today I have had a major house clearance done by your team ready for me to move to Wales. They arrived at 9am and worked through the heat of the day until 4pm. Their professionalism was fantastic, they were polite and willing to do all that I asked and more. I would recommend them to anyone I know needing any type of clearance. Thanking you and your staff.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the efficient, helpful, thorough and tidy manner in which you undertook the recent clearance of our mother’s bungalow. Although I was unable to be present at the time, my brother - who was there and relayed to me how it went - also asked me to pass on his sincere thanks for a job really well done.

You and your colleague have done a really efficient job, leaving the house clear, clean and tidy for the next owner. Your hard work has taken a great weight off my mind as it would have been very difficult for me to clear the house myself. My aunt is very pleased to hear that it has been done. What a great service. Thank you and all good wishes to St Helena 

Thank you so much for all you did in clearing mum & dad's house yesterday. You made what was a hard & difficult job that much easier & for that I am truly grateful. It is comforting knowing that some funds will be raised for St Helena as they looked after my mum so well , so it is a charity close to our hearts.

I would just like to let you know what a fantastic job the team made of clearing my mum & dad's house yesterday. They made what was a hard & difficult job that much easier at a very hard time for us all. They worked very hard & I am truly grateful for all they did for me yesterday. It is also a comfort knowing that money will be raised to such a very good cause as St Helena Hospice looked after & cared for my mum so very well 16 years ago. Please pass on my gratitude to the team , they are brilliant in their job... all carried out with a great sense of humour when times are emotionally hard! 

I should like to place on note what a good service I have had from your team today. The preliminaries were efficiently carried out as was the work and the guys were cheery and helpful and I thank them very much. I would very much recommend their services to any potential customer. They were excellent ambassadors for St Helena.

We just want to say thank you to your house clearance team. At all times their service was very friendly, helpful, professional and efficient.
