Rogue Operators Out There
What We Have Seen.
Lancashire House Clearance are proud of their fairer pricing policy and always offer the best price possible.
In recent weeks we have seen quotes from other operators for really low prices.
One quote was £300.00 including 2 Double Mattresses and an old Fridge Freezer.
The minimum cost of disposing of these alone is over £70 plus the weight of them.
Look at fuel, labour and disposal costs and the alarm bells should start to ring.
Signs of a Rogue Operator
If you are responsible and care about what happens to the contents of a property you are clearing, you will want a licensed and insured company to do it for you.
Finding out skip hire prices is fairly easy and looking up the company on The Environment Agency Website is simple too.
Every House Clearance company MUST me a licensed waste carrier. The license must start with CBDU no other will do.
Its is It is YOUR responsibility to check the credentials of your chosen waste carrier.
The signs of a rogue operator are not always obvious.
When you get quotes for your job, always get 3. If one of the prices is lower than the other two by a long way, you should then check the lowest priced carrier out in more depth.
Lancashire House Clearance are members of Lancashire County Council Trading Standards Safe Trader Scheme.
The scheme has a code of conduct which all members must abide by.
This is just one of the things we do to demonstrate our commitment to fair and honest business.
Why Does This Matter?
House Clearance and Rubbish Removal junk needs to be recycled properly.
The environmental impact of fly tipping goes far beyond being unsightly.
A Properly licensed waste carrier should always take care to ensure your waste is disposed of safely and legally. Use only an Upper Tier Carrier.
Using an unlicensed carrier will increase the possibility of your junk being fly tipped. As business’s, we cannot go on to the normal council tip.
Commercial waste transfer stations are what we use.
The main one we use has a minimum charge of £108 plus VAT. This is for up to 0.75 Tonne of junk.
Mattresses and Fridges are charged extra due to the way they are disposed of. Because of this, we will advice you on how to get rid of these for free.
If the junk is fly tipped and traced back to you via an envelope etc, you COULD be found just as guilty as the person who dumped it.
All House Clearance and Rubbish Removal Companies Should Be Licenced Waste Carriers therefore YOU SHOULD check HERE
