If you need your items to be sorted so you can peruse them it is best that these items are arranged to be put in specific area so you can have time to look and decide on whether they should be kept or not.

What if I don’t live close to the property?

If you live some distance from the property, we can organise to collect the house keys from an estate agent or probate administrator. Whether this is to perform a quote or when carrying out any work.

If you wish to be present whilst we perform the house clearance following a bereavement, we will be happy to talk to you about the person who lived there and will always be available to listen.
