Bereavement house clearance

We are a family run company and we know how it feels to lose a loved one, that’s why do our utmost to clear the property respectfully and carefully!

Bereavement property clearance is very similar to probate clearance, with the main difference being that the person dealing with the estate of the deceased has already been agreed. That person has the power to distribute or discard the friend or family member’s possessions. Our bereavement team will help you sort and dispose of any household items you need to clear.

If you need to make bereavement property clearance arrangements, but live some distance from the house, we can arrange to collect the house keys from the probate administrator or estate agent dealing with the estate, both at the time of providing you with a quote and again when we carry out the work.

    We have performed hundreds if not thousands of House clearances across the years, so we are used to dealing with all kinds of different scenarios, plus we offer a free Key drop and collection service which has proved to be extremely popular over the years as this takes the stress out of having to let us in at the start of the clearance, which is usually early in the morning and being there at the end of the clearance.

    Please do not worry, on many occasions we complete a clearance where there are items that the family would like to keep. In this incidence you clearly mark any items to stay, we usually gather the items in one room so they are in safekeeping. This is not uncommon and applies to nearly every clearance that we complete.

    Easy checklist:

    To make the bereavement property clearance as quick and simple as possible, we’ve come up with some hints and tips.

    We recommend you think about the following before you call:

    1. Are you organised? The more organised your bereavement property clearance is, the easier it is for us to give you an accurate estimate of the clearance and rubbish that we’ll need to carry out and remove. Colour-coding your bereavement property clearance items is a great way to do this, especially if we are only taking some of the furniture and rubbish from each room and leaving the rest etc.(partial-house clearance service)
    2. If over the phone, a great description of the work at hand will be very helpful.  This is especially important if you’re not going to be supervising the actual task.
    3. Can you provide a detailed description of the number of rubbish bags and junk that needs removing, or the specific house clearance items you want to get rid of? This will also help us to form an accurate quote for you upon arrival for the clearance quote.

    At Windrush Valley House Clearance Ltd., we want you to be 100% confident in choosing us as your bereavement property clearance contractor. Our aim is to recycle or re-use where possible.
