Trustpilot Review – 9th March 2017

Fantastic

I cannot express just how good this company has been in what can only be described as a very trying time for my entire family.
From first contact with Carol in the office to the gentlemen on the day the entire process has been handled with the greatest care and discretion. They have all gone above and beyond to reassure both of my parents who were there to supervise on the day and couldn’t have been more helpful in any way shape or form. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second in recommending these wonderful people to anybody who finds themselves in need of their services.Thank you all

Guy from Newport Said:

(Unable to be present for the clearance – we collected keys from Solicitors and followed Guy’s instructions which were emailed to us in advance and then we sent pictures of the completed clearance by email to Guy for approval)

Many thanks Carol

It looks like they have done a really good job.

Could you thank the men for their work and professionalism, they were really good at keeping me informed and have clearly done an excellent job.

Thank you again for your help with this.

With kind regards

Hi,
I would just like to inform you how pleased we were with your service for my dads house clearance in Waltham Abbey. We didn’t call your team in until the very end and regretted it! If we had to do it again we would call you in much sooner! They were very quick, efficient and left everything very tidy, Thank you

Laura from Shenfield Said:

Emailed Testimony – 10th September 2016

Bill, Nathan and Les came to clear and clean my father’s house a few weeks ago. The whole process was straightforward and efficiently carried out from the initial conversation with Carol, follow-up emails to confirm and on the day itself. Bill, Nathan and Les arrived early, took care to listen to my instructions which they followed to the letter and got on with the job! They were cheerful, flexible and helpful and made a potentially difficult day smooth and pleasant. I would definitely use Abacus again if I needed the service and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. Thank you so much!

Dear Carol,

I write to compliment you on the excellent service provided by your team. the guys must have had a trying time finding the rather remote property, but remained cheerful and industrious throughout what must have been a very hard day, and indeed night, by the time they got home.
They were great.

Many thanks indeed.

Paula from St Leonards by the Sea Said:
Emailed Testimony – 26th August 2016

I used Abacus Property clearance to clear my sister’s house after she died. The customer service I received was excellent from the start. Communication was excellent and the clearance was arranged for a few days later.

The clearance took place on the hottest day of the year. Despite the heat the lads remained cheerful and professional throughout the clearance. My sister was a hoarder so there was loads of junk but the lads didn’t mention the condition of the property which really made things much easier for me to cope with. They worked so hard to make sure the property was cleared in a day, they must have been completely exhausted.
I would highly recommend Abacus to anyone looking to clear a property.
Regards
Paula

Carol,
I have really enjoyed the sensitivity, honesty and sense of humour that is needed for a removal of this nature.  I will definitely be recommending you to any friends obviously not just because I think they need their house defumigating!!!!

Hi

I just wanted to say such a big thank you for the job you did. The guys were amazing, so friendly and extremely efficient. They were very respectful of the property and my newly painted walls and managed the horrible stairs to my flat brilliantly. Your service was 100% worth the money and I don’t believe I would have been able to clear my flat ready for the market without you. Please give my regards to the whole team and thank them for such a great experience.

Thanks, Nicola.

I would like to thank Abacus for making the clearance of my mother’s flat so easy and trouble-free.
Bill Brosnan and his team arrived bright and early, and worked very hard. They were extremely courteous, helpful and efficient. They were very considerate in dealing with the constraints of working in a retirement block of flats with other older people around, and I was delighted to see how neat and tidy they left the flat when they had finished.
I would recommend Abacus to my friends without hesitation and I am happy for you to publish this endorsement.
Kind regards

Hi, I would just like to thank Bill and his team for the fantastic job they did for us in Southampton last Wednesday. My mum was over the moon and we really enjoyed the banter and laughs we had with them. At least our mind is at rest and the place can go on the market. Please thank them all from me and thanks for finding the folder of photos.

“Thank you so much to Abacus Property Clearance.

My wife’s aunt died and left a 1 bedroom flat full of “stuff” both useful, recyclable and rubbish. After a very pleasant phone call we arranged, at a distance, for Abacus to completely clear the place. We were delayed on our journey to meet at the property by traffic but the guys stayed there until we arrived, cleared out the place with courtesy and sympathy including removal of carpets, curtains and lampshades. The property was left in a condition that enabled us to hand it back to the owners within an hour.

A service I would recommend especially as they are partners with British Heart Foundation and donate as much as they can to that worthy cause.”

 

Chrissy from Bury Said:

Emailed Testimony – 8th January 2016

After losing our Dad earlier in the year, we had the difficult job of clearing the house to make it ready for sale eventually. My brother and I first spent time together, going through family mementos and belongings, but then quickly realised that the next stage, of clearing everything else was going to be huge. I live at the other end of the country, and my brother was unable to take time off to deal with it.

After extensive research, I made early general inquiries at Abacus, and Carol was so sweet, sensitive and understanding through my numerous calls, before we were in a position to set the date. We were so pleased with the professional ‘can do’ approach from everyone at Abacus from beginning to end.They were thorough,swift , professional,and lovely to deal with, at what is a difficult time.It was nice to know that Mum and Dad’s nicest things were donated to the Heart Foundation too.We asked for the property to be cleaned, ready for the new owner, and this was done brilliantly.

I can only say that we were so pleased that we had not risked a “cowboy trader” ,and that we entrusted the job to Abacus, who did not let us down.
Thankyou so much

  • Hello. My name is Sarah and I am a compulsive hoarder.
    I contacted Abacus after 8 months of inpatient psychiatric care for severe anxiety and hoarding.
    I have always been a “collector”. As a child I had a messy bedroom, fill of things that meant something to me, but to anyone else would be junk. I could never throw things away and would often cry at being made to clear my room. It was a reaction to being abused. Stuff made me feel safe. When I was fostered and then adopted, it meant I belonged and my stuff was me.
    Student life continued in the same vein, typically messy student. I hoarded books and papers and journals. Clearing out my flat took an entire week.
    As an adult renting a house that was inspected every six months, the week before inspection was terrifying. Cupboards crammed full and things hidden everywhere.
    Then I bought my own house and it started to go downhill. On the outside I was a clean neat person who held a respectable job as a teacher. On the inside I was increasingly anxious and not coping with the stress, and the hoarding started to take over. There was no one thing that I hoarded, it was a combination of junk, that made me feel safe.
    And then came the day where I couldn’t leave the house. I was signed off sick with anxiety and depression and that was it. I couldn’t leave the house even to go to the wheelie bin, food shopping was delivered and left on the mat outside until I could work up the courage to open the door to bring it in.
    And the rubbish got worse and higher and smellier. The bedroom became unusable it was full, and you couldn’t see the bed, let alone sleep in it.
    So then I moved to the sofa with a sleeping bag. Tried to keep myself as clean as I could though even the shower and the sink became unusable. I was “washing” with dry shampoo and baby wipes. I honestly believed I would never get out and never get my house back, it was too far gone.
    The day I decided to kill myself was the day my abuser got out of prison. I phoned an ambulance and got them to come and get me. The ambulance drivers visibly recoiled at the smell and had to sedate me to get me out of the house. I was admitted under section to a psychiatric unit where I spent 8 months, working on anxiety and hoarding behaviours.
    Discharge started to be talked about but it was clear that I couldn’t go home till I got my house sorted and that became a condition of my discharge.
    I emailed several companies. It was a pretty desperate email, including the fact that I have a phone phobia and so I couldn’t speak.
    I had several emails back. Some tried to call me anyway. Some quoted me prices I could never have afforded.
    Then Abacus popped into my inbox with Carol, and saying that they could clear the house no problem and quoted what turned out to be an incredible price. I was dealt with so sensitively and there was no judgement or shame put onto me, Abacus genuinely wanted to help.
    Emails went back and forth and sorted out what the job would entail. Carol made herself my point of contact throughout, meaning it was safe to say what was happening, and how I was feeling. Seeing the photos and testimonials on their website helped and Carol assured me they wouldn’t let me down. I posted the key to Carol and she booked me in.
    On the day a team of 3 men including Bill, the owner of the business were at my house. They were in an unmarked van and said nothing to my neighbours about what was going on, meaning my secret was safe.
    Carol texted me throughout the day giving me updates and asking questions about things that they found, did I want them or not, could they do this, I was still in control of it. Day two was the same, updates and reassurance. I also had asked for the cleaning service too and again questions and suggestions were made.
    One of the things that attracted me to Abacus was their policy never to fly tip and to recycle as much as possible, including giving anything suitable to charity.
    Still in the unit, Carol sent me photos. Wow, it looked amazing. Gone were the piles of rotten rubbish and worthless junk. Gone were the flies and insects.
    Nothing though prepared me for seeing it for the first time. It was absolutely incredible. It was clean, clear and I could get in every room! The bathroom suite was gleaming white like new and everything left was neatly stacked and sorted, I had a second chance.
    Overcoming my phone phobia to call Carol to tell her how stunned I was was a emotional experience, I’m not sure who was more nervous – that’s how much Carol wanted to do a good job.
    If you are reading this, there is hope, you can recover and there is no shame in needing help. I can’t recommend Abacus highly enough – they really are specialists in helping hoarders. They are trustworthy, reliable and sensitive. Carol, Bill and team helped me change my life, literally. Please call them. They will help.

    Dear IrvinI am just writing to thank you very much for all the assistance that you and your team have given to me in relation to the clearance of my family property.As I explained to you when making arrangements for you to carry out this job the property, whilst it had been occupied ( I am not sure I can honestly say lived in!) up to four months ago had not been attended to for a great many years and on top of the dilapidation that was evident in the dampness, leaking roofs and collapsed ceilings in some rooms, it was also extremely cluttered! Sadly it was so cluttered in some rooms we could not see, never mind access, the other side of the room.Just to make matters more complicated from my point of view I live many hundreds of miles from the property so were unable to meet to discuss matters beforehand which could have been a problem with a disreputable company.You were professional throughout, you agreed a price with me and stuck to it. You and your team turned up on time and not only worked their socks off but did it with good humor and a degree of sensitivity given the fact that you were of course clearing out what had been my family’s personal history!The job took longer than either of us anticipated and as you know I felt sufficiently at ease to leave you with the key to finalise the clearance without my being physically present.You very sensibly checked with me when anything looked important or valuable and you and your team cleared the entire house without causing me any of the anxiety or stress which I had expected!I will certainly recommend you on a personal and professional level and wish you all the best.Best wishesBronwenView the photos from this clearance

    I write with reference to the team from Abacus that came to our rescue today.I won`t bore you with the tale of woe, but we were left with a small house that was in dire straits that my other half and I had been trying to deal with for a while leading to tears, tantrums and several unpleasant domestic rows-not to mention the hard work involved in just getting two foot inside the door.I called Abacus. They arrived exactly when they said they would – in fact they were early! The situation in the house, it seemed, was much worse than I thought after my uninvited guests had departed, and was beginning to think that I would have to make arrangements for another day and then have to put off all deliveries etc that had been planned.Abacus to the rescue!The appropriate skip was ordered (50 yarder) and delivered that day and I was assured that they`d sort it all out the same day. The guys worked like Trojans and whilst identifying important documents and items selected as keepers, cleared the entire house without a moment of stress or anxiety on our part.I wouldn`t wish what happened to us on a soul, but these things happen to a great or lesser degree all the time. In hindsight, I wish I`d called in professional help immediately rather than even attempt this task alone, and would have no hesitation in recommending Abacus to anyone with a similar problem, howsoever caused.View the photos from this clearance

    When we were faced with needing to restore order to my Mum`s horrendously cluttered bungalow once she had become ill and had to go into hospital, we initially tried to tackle the clearance ourselves. It quickly became apparent that, particularly living 300 miles away, the scale of the task was far too great. I discovered Abacus on the web and saw its photos of house clearances and testimonials from other people facing similar dilemmas.Once I had spoken with Ian on the telephone I was impressed with his understanding, straightforward and non-judgemental manner. He put me at my ease in dealing with what was a highly emotional and sensitive situation. He reassured me that nothing shocked him and that no problem was too big for him and his team.Having agreed the items to be kept, I sent Abacus a key and we agreed a date and time to meet at the property. Ian and his team caused me slight surprise in telephoning me to state that they intended arriving half a day early. As it transpired, this was of real benefit, as, once they had gained access to all the rooms (due to missing keys) the amount to be cleared was discovered to be even greater than we had anticipated.Ian managed the whole situation in a highly professional and efficient manner. Despite the huge task with which they were presented, significant amounts of cash, personal possessions and items of great sentimental value were retrieved from the chaos and kept safe by the team. He and his team were courteous and extremley hard working throughout. The job took 2½ days and they started at 6am to finish by 4pm on the Saturday so as to minimise any inconvenience to the neighbours.We are extremely happy with the work and the thorough clearance that Abacus carried out and we have no hesitation in recommending Abacus to others facing the same dilemma that we did.Thank you for a superb job.Yours sincerely A B View the photos from this clearance

    We contacted Abacus Property Clearances after trying to empty my parents’ home for two years. The house was exceptionally full of a mixture of plain and simple rubbish, intermingled with items of considerable sentimental value.It was with some trepidation at the thought of employing a clearance company that we contacted Abacus, but we now feel it was definitely the best thing we could have done.Ian and his team salvaged furniture, ornaments and personal possessions from within the chaos of the house, whilst clearing the obvious rubbish and emptying the house in an incredibly short time given the amount of work they had to do. Their only break from work was five minutes in which to eat lunch. They worked tirelessly doing a demanding and difficult job.The team of six men (plus an additional two to clear the jungle of a garden) were punctual, polite, and straight away got on with the job of clearing the house quietly and efficiently.We were impressed by how Ian managed his team, who are a credit to him. They arranged everything, from the skip hire to the recycling, and did so in a calm, professional manner.It was the small things that made the big difference during the clearance, for example, when a neighbour’s car needed moving to allow skip access, Abacus politely and efficiently talked to the neighbour directly, without myself needing to be involved, and the neighbour happily moved his car straight away. It is the little things such as this that made the whole process that much easier for us.Ian and his team were completely trustworthy, and after agreeing what was to be left in the house and what was to be removed, we were more than happy to leave them with a key to complete the job and forward the key back to us.As the house clearance was particularly emotional for us, we were grateful for the professional, understanding approach that was shown by the team.After seeing the results of Ian and his team’s work, and the manner in which they went about it, I have no hesitation in recommending the company to other people that require their services.View the photos from this clearance

    Abacus live up to their reputation. I chose them at random from their website having read previous testimonials. The workers arrived on time, very helpful, hardworking and polite. The house was very cluttered and full of items to be cleared but they excelled themselves in clearing everything. They worked continuously, no breaks taken apart from brief lunch, always friendly and respectful of the fact that they were clearing my mother’s house who can no longer stay here. Would strongly recommend them and would certainly use them in the future.View the photos from this clearance

When you realised that the job was going to be much bigger than you expected you made arrangements to allocate more time to it there and then which was a great relief for me. I understand from neighbours that you were there until 7.00pm both Friday and Saturday – thank you. My wife and I went away for the weekend, returning on the Sunday afternoon to find the property cleared. I was especially grateful to Mike who agreed to fit a new lock on the front door when I explained that I was having trouble getting copies of the existing key. All in all a good job which has meant that I have been able to proceed straight away with arranging the sale of the property. Overall I am pleased with the work you have done and would recommend your company to others.View the photos from this clearance

    Following the death of a family relative we were confronted with the clearance of the house which was in a state of squalor! The rooms were elevated by 2-3 foot of rubbish, rotting food etc. We contacted the Abacus team who were extremely helpful & supportive, they arrived on time and despite the dreadful conditions worked tirelessly to get the job done. They did what they promised and cleared the whole house. The team was fantastic and did not complain in any way – great guys who we got on with very well and we cannot thank them enough, and would recommend them to anyone facing the kind of problems we were confronted with. Thanks to you all.View the photos from this clearance

    Dear Chris, Irvin and team (Abacus staff),I am writing to express my gratitude to you for your recent property clearance at Ambleside, Cumbria, which was a colossal job as it involved 3 separate large buildings with over 45 years worth of associated furniture and serious amounts of clutter/junk in every single room.Your team arrived early each day, you were very conscious of my customer sensitivities at a time of family bereavement and you displayed professionalism, honesty and good humour.The scale of the task you faced cannot be underestimated and I would definitely recommend you and your team to anyone. Your punctuality was all the more impressive given the distance and time you had to travel to reach Ambleside in the first place.Your good humour and friendly approach definitely contributed significantly to making the job go as smoothly as it did.Thank you very much indeed.View the photos from this clearance

    I have been very impressed with Abacus House Clearance. We needed a house cleared urgently, and Abacus were able to do it at very short notice. They were reliable and came when they said they would, and when it became obvious that the job was much heavier and more time consuming than we had originally thought, they went that extra mile to get it finished, staying much later than planned and hiring an extra van for us. They were pleasant and helpful people to deal with.View the photos from this clearance

They also phoned confirming that the job was completed. A very efficient service – highly recommended.View the photos from this clearance

    I contacted Abacus on Friday 31st March 2008 to discuss a flat clearance where the aged tenant had died a couple of weeks prior. Abacus were extremely helpful and were able to book the appointment for the following Saturday. The company were also very competitive as I had been put off by another clearance firm. On the morning of the clearance Abacus arrived on time and with two van loads had the property completely clear within half a days work. This included everything moveable in the property and left the way completely clear for remedial work to progress. Thank you very much for your help.
