We are often asked if we can provide quotes over the phone. This is possible if we’re being asked to clear only one or two items, and when they can be well described to us. It is rather more difficult to do this for a large area that needs clearing, as the price w quote you is largely dependant on the weight of the clearance load. (This is what we are charged upon at the commercial tip). Obviously we can get a much better idea of weight from actually looking at (and sometimes even lifting) what needs to be cleared as opposed to having it described to us.
If we can visually inspect what there is to be cleared, we can also ascertain whether there is anything that has re-sale value, and the amount that can be either recycled, or passed on to charities and santuary’s. This can benefit you, by reducing the amount that will need to be dealt with at the commercial tip, which in turn, reduces the cost.
Having looked at what there is to be cleared, we go away to work out a price for you. We then phone it through to you to avoid any feelings of on-the-spot pressure. However, verbal quotes are always confirmed in writting. If the quote is acceptable to you though, we are happy to return the same day with the van to carry out the work if it needs to be done sooner rather than later.
The price we quote yhou will be inclusive of all tiping charges and labour, and will be final. The only factor that would change the price we initially quoted you, would be if you asked us to clear morre than we originally agreed upon and quoted you for. The price is likely to increase in-line with the added weight and time taken to do the work. We will inform you of any price increase prior to loading additional items onto the van.
