The Braintree House Clearances website is part of Essex House Clearances, a small owner-managed business based just outside Braintree, providing property clearance services across most of Essex.
We have to admit we’re friends with the owner, but the reason we’re happy to recommend Braintree House Clearances to anyone who needs house clearance services is that we know they offer a superb service. In the past we haven’t recommended anyone’s services unless they relate to dogs, but in this case we can do it without reservation.
In case you’re wondering, a house clearance means having a house (or indeed any other property) cleared of unwanted items, including things like furniture, appliances, general household items, personal effects such as clothing and even things like carpets if necessary. As the customer, you decide what needs to go and these guys get on with it, leaving you with a property that’s empty and ready for renovation, sale or letting.
Recycling as default
If you ask Braintree House Clearances to empty a property, they don’t load a van and take it all to a landfill. Everything that’s cleared is assessed to see if it can be rehomed, one way or another. Things like furniture which is in good enough condition is rehomed, generally by donating it to local charities who help those on lower incomes or sell items through their charity shops. Things like clothing are always donated to because they can either be sold via a charity shop, or sold as ‘rags’ if they’re not in good condition. Thanks to ‘Gift Aid’, the charities even get tax relief on donated items that they are able to sell. Anything that isn’t suitable for rehoming goes to a commercial recycling centre, meaning as little as possible wasted.
Braintree House Clearances are happy to help regardless of the circumstances behind your clearance needs, whether it’s emptying a rental property after an abusive or illegal tenancy, whether you’ve bought a property at auction that needs emptying or even if a family member has passed away and the house needs to be emptied in order to get it sold.
