Taking the hassle out of house clearance
House clearances can be stressful. Whether you’re dealing with the property of a deceased relative or preparing your house for sale or to let, it can be daunting to go it alone. We’re here to help things go as smoothly as possible.
Our professional, reliable house clearance service could even prove to be cheaper than hiring a skip. Operating across Yorkshire, we have a large fleet of vans, so can clear all of your property in one load.
Rehoming & Recycling
We are keen to reduce the amount of waste going into landfill, so we always try to make sure items from your house clearance are recycled or reused.
If you think you have something of value, just let us know. Occasionally we can buy specific items from you to reduce the cost of your house clearance.
If there is anything you don’t want us to take, just put it to one side and we’ll take the rest.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you’ve any questions for us, this is the place to find the answer. And if it’s not covered here, feel free to pick up the phone and call us…
Can we clear at the Weekend?
We are able to carry out your removal at any time that is convenient for you with no extra charge for saturdays but different days and times may carry a premium to reflect the extra cost of staff.
What size of van will I get?
The size of the van is decided by our staff based on a survey of your home. It is our responsibility to get this right. Always use a company with experience and a good reputation to ensure that they will. If a survey has not been carried out, we will use the information that you have provided us with to calculate the size of van required. As long as you have been honest then it will still be our responsibility to get it right.
How long will my house clearance take?
Usually a two bedroom house should take 2-4 hours depending on extent of clearance but if you give us a call we can advise you how long your clearance will take.
What do clearance costs include?
Jorvik removals prices are tailored to your needs. Our basic service supplies you with a removal van with a crew to completely clear your property including carpets and curtains when required and and items which are re-salable by us then this would reduce the cost of your clearance or if everything could be re-sold then we would arrange a price that we could offer you for your items.
How do I move house with a dog/cat?
If you chose Jorvik Removals then you may borrow one of our special pet carriers on your removal day. It is best that you shut your pets in one room for your removal day usually the room with the least amount of items to move in it and put a sticker on the door stating “Do Not Open’.
How do I pay for my house clearance
Once you have accepted our Quote, we require full payment before or on the morning of your removal. This can be paid via cash, debit or credit card and BACS.
Are my goods insured?
we only cover items that we move not items for house clearance
What time will the van arrive?
Generally, our staff start work between six and eight o’clock in the morning. We aim to be at your address between 8:30 am and 9:00 am in the morning. If you are moving long distance we will liaise with you and give you an estimated time of arrival. Sometimes, for many reasons we can be delayed, however, we will always arrive.
