There is a website for the Association of UK House Clearance Companies who list reputable companies. Some of them appear to be larger organisations trying to appear local but they have a good and reputable standing with the association.

“There are hundreds of honest, reliable house clearance companies around, just because they are not members of this site does not mean they are a bad house clearance company. Our current members simply wish to show their customers they are a part of an organization that enforces a strict code of practice that puts customer satisfaction first.” Source UK House Clearance Association
