We are often asked how much a clearance will cost. If you are asking us to clear just a few items, and you can described them well to us, we can often provide a quote over the phone – we can take a calculated guess at the weight (whether it will weigh 1 tonne or under 0.5 tonnes), and whether or not we might be able to send the items for re-use.
It is more difficult to provide a cost for clearance of a whole property, without viewing it however, as the price we quote you, is largely dependant on the weight of the clearance load. (This is what we are charged upon at the commercial disposal and recycling site). We can get a much better idea of weight from actually looking at the house contents, and areas to be cleared, as every house is different.
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, for re-use. This can benefit you, by reducing the amount that will need to be dealt with at the disposal/recycling site.
After leaving the property/premises, we will be able to calculate the cost. We will call you to discuss the quote, and upon your acceptance and payment of the deposit, the written quote confirmation will be sent.
I was so naive as to how the house clearance process worked. Initially the price I was given, seemed a bit high, but after Christian informed me that my house contents couldn’t just go to the local amenity site, it all made sense, and actually, I had seen news articles, previously that confirmed what was explained to me. At the end of the day, I was so pleased that I called AAA. They did a fantastic job, left the house perfectly clean and tidy, were true gentlemen, and the cost was absolutely justified. I wouldn’t hesitate to use you again, or recommend you to my friends. S. Reiner, Crawley.
We do not charge upon how much loading space your items/house contents take up – this approach is unfair on customers because some items are very big, but weigh very little.
We do not charge on time taken to load – this approach is unfair, because it depends on how hard a team works.
We charge on weight, as this is what all reputable waste carriers are charged upon. It is the only fair, and responsible way to calculate how much a house clearance should cost.
The cost we quote, will be inclusive of all disposal charges and labor, and will be final. If, however, you asked us to clear more than we originally agreed upon and quoted you for, the price may 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.
Great job, at a great price. Thank you to the Woking team at AAA House Clearance. I can’t believe how hard, and fast you all worked to meet my deadline. Thank you so very much. Tristan J, Haywards Heath
