House clearance is one important task we simply can’t ignore for too long, especially if we have the bad habit of collecting all manner of items as we live our lives. Sometimes you need to do a little house clearance, junk removal, furniture clearance, you name it. The following tips will give some insight into the possible ways you can understand what you need to do:

  • Timing and organizing

This is one of the most important factors when you plan your house clearance and making sure you have everything going great from point A to point B. You would need at least a week prior to working on the rest of your things if you want to deal with planning and smaller details, so act ahead of time and look for possible options on organizing you can deal with.

  • Item categories

If you have any time to use around your house clearance, then you will need to consider the items you can keep over the items that simply need to go. Donating and selling are two great options, but you will first need to figure out what goes where before you can call it a day.

  • Clearing items out

You can work on arranging most of your items for clearance purposes, but you would need to go through a simple roundup of all items that need special attention. The easiest way to go about this is to know the floor plan of your place and to see whether you can improve upon it by removing some of the bulkier and dust-prone furniture pieces you have. If you need to move to a new location, then you will need to do a serious junk removal and furniture clearance if you want to make things more manageable.

  • Handling the volume

There are many ways you can deal with all your items, but you would do well to consider the pros and cons of selling versus donations. You can go either way, but one will give you cold, hard cash up front while the other will allow you to gain some benefits on your taxes this same year. Whichever way you go, make sure you make your choices wisely and you look for possible opportunities to make the most of what you have as there will be no second tries once you’re done.

  • Disposal

Once you’re done with this, you will need to work on disposing all your chosen belongings with a larger vehicle or by hiring clearance services to get the job done for you. Depending on what you chose to do and the volume of items involved things can go either way. Regardless of what you choose to do, you will need to do a bit of research on the market before you can call a Rubbish Removal Waste Ltd. Look for the options you can work with, call up several of the companies and have them provide you with quotes on their services and what that entails.

*** Note from the BGH team – This is a Guest Post by Ella Andrews – none of the links are endorsed by BGH.  We have used lots of different clearance firms and they often charge about the same per van load – get them to give you a price before you agree for the load – its a good idea to be there when they load up so they get all the things they are supposed to take on a “full load”. Don’t try and overload them. Alternatively try things like Freegle, a great chance to give your unwated items a second lease of life!!***
