House Clearance Prices.
How much does a house clearance cost ?
The cost of a house clearance depends on the amount of stuff to clear.
The types of stuff also have an impact on the cost because some items carry a surcharge due to the way they are disposed of. Items such as Gas Bottles from calor type heaters, Sprung Mattresses, Old CRT Monitors and TVs, Refrigerators and Freezers are some of the items. these have an effect on house clearance prices.
In Garages and Sheds, there are often old paints and chemicals that must be disposed of properly too. Some creosote type products are extremely toxic as indeed are most pesticides.
The majority of house clearance companies simply charge based on the amount of stuff to clear then charge + VAT
So a House Clearance quote of £500 becomes £600.00 with VAT included. We do not add VAT on top of our quotes therefore there is no shock at the bill.

Does Less Stuff Mean Less Cost?
Not necessarily, Lancashire Clearance Services price by volume like many others but, we look at any value in the stuff in the property.
The value in the majority of properties is in the volume of smaller items and not in the furniture. A lot of customers make a start on clearing the smaller stuff first because it’s relatively easy to do.
We would advise you to just remove what’s being kept by yourselves, friends and relatives then call us in to give you a FREE no-obligation quote.
How Can More Stuff Cost Less?
Let’s say you need to clear a 3-bed house and our quote by volume is £700.00.
Once we have the £700 figure, we look at reducing it with any value in the contents of the property.
If you have a hundred small items that are £1 each in value then right away that is a reduction of £100.00. Our average reduction is between Twenty and Thirty percent. It is worth noting that we do not allow any value for Sofas (there are some exceptions), 3 Piece Suites, Beds, Mattresses, Dark Furniture or Refrigeration Appliances. (This includes Air Conditioning Units)
When you think how much does a house clearance cost, remember some items will add to house clearance prices and some will take away.
Example: Price by volume is £700.00 and the value in the contents is £500.00 means you would pay just £200.00
If the value in the contents is £1400.00 we would pay you £700.00
