We understand that beginning the process of clearing a loved-one’s property is a difficult time, and we are here to help and advise at all stages.
Clearing a property and selling by auction is usually the best way to dispose of unwanted furniture and belongings, as it ensures that all items sell for a fair open market price and that there is complete transparency in the process to all interested parties such as family members.
We offer a free initial visit to the property and appraisal of the likely work involved.
After your initial contact, one of our valuers will visit your property and offer a free, no-obligation assessment of the contents and a clearance quotation, with no hidden fees. We will be able to advise on the best way to approach the clearance – with an honest assessment of the likely realisation and costs.
You can then choose whether you wish us to collect just the saleable items or whether you would like our staff to clear the property completely for you (and deduct the collection quote from the proceeds).
All saleable goods are offered for sale through our auctions, and for any item which may be unsuitable for sale we arrange either donation to charity or recycling, our ethical disposal policy ensures that we send the bare minimum to landfill. Our in-house expertise in all areas ensures that any special items are spotted and assessed prior to sale (it’s important to have one of our experts visit early on before anything is disposed of, to ensure that nothing of value is missed – sometimes it is the most incongruous piece of paper which is worth most!)
Once your goods have been sold, you will receive a full settlement statement within a few days, with any expenses deducted from the total.
To book a free, no-obligation appointment, or to ask any questions you may have, please don’t hesitate to contact Tim Blyth or David Gould on 01263 733195.
