Time to complete: 2 hours
Job description: We were appointed to clear a 1 bedroom terraced house in Hammersmith London which belonged to our clients mother who had passed away over six months before, although our client had visited the property before and taken any items of value or sentimental value she found it too distressing to be at the house whilst we were clearing it of the contents, she arranged for us to collect the keys from an estate agents in Hammersmith on the morning of the House Clearance and we let ourselves in, we knew exactly what needed clearing as we send a detailed list to every client via email to ensure we don’t clear anything that we shouldn’t, it was clear that no one had visited the property in a while by the amount of post which had accumulated, we parcelled all the post together and put to one side making sure we did not dispose of any while clearing the property, there was a lot of clothes in the wardrobes which we put on the bed to sort as a lot of them were still very new looking we sorted any good clothing and bagged up to take to charity, there was also I nice corner wall unit and smaller ornaments and bric a brac suitable to donate to charity, so we carefully wrapped everything and put to one side. The job was completed in under 2 hours
Disposal of contents: there was not a lot of furniture in the property, however most was unsuitable to donate to charity, the wardrobes were flimsy and the hinges were loose so we flat packed it to get more room in our van, the sofa was old and did not meet with fire regulations so we packed everything on our van then put on the items which we could take to charity, after carrying out a final check around the property and taking pictures of every room we locked up the house and set off to the charity shop in Hammersmith, as the estate agents was not too far away we dropped off the keys and the bundle of mail that we collected from the front door before going to the recycling station in Hammersmith which we have used many times.
