How much does Bedford House Clearance Charge?

How Much Will It Cost?

More Information About Our Services

Further Information

Eco Friendly

We aim to recycle up to 90% of all waste we collect. We also endeavour to help out local charities where possible by donating items to them.

Large Fleet Of Vehicles

Because of the size of our vehicles, we can clear most properties in a single day. We run a large fleet to suit any clearance so you can be sure that we’ll have the correct transportation for your house clearance needs. This helps lower costs to you. Larger vehicles means less trips.

Rogue Traders

Rogue traders give the rest of us a bad name. They may be the cheapest companies out there but they don’t dispose of the waste in ways that adhere to the law and could get you in trouble.

We have the following tips for avoiding rogue house clearance companies:

BE WARY OF UNLICENSED TRADERS – it is illegal under The Environmental Protection Act 1990 to employ the services of an unlicensed trader.

You can be fined up to £50,000 or even end up with five years imprisonment for using them. If any items that are fly-tipped or not disposed of legally can be traced back to you, then you can be held equally liable alongside the rogue trader.

Warning Signs To Look Our For

1. Does the person you are speaking to on the phone sound cagey, hesitant, or non confident?

2. Are they promising the earth for very little money?

3. Ask them if they will supply you with an invoice once the house clearance is completed? The invoice should contain all of their business details.

4. Are they asking for cash in hand?

5. Is their website transparent? Do they have a registered office address shown?

6. Do they have any stated reviews, and do the amount of reviews match the number shown on their Google My Business page?

7. Remember, anyone can put together a website in a few hours. Take your time to go over their website thoroughly. Does it feel right to you? Just because they have a website, do not think they are accountable. We’ve heard of many stories whereby people have been duped by professional looking websites that fail to live up to their promises. For legal reasons, we cannot name and shame them, but please be warned. Just because a site is listed on the Google search engine, it does not mean it is either ethical or professional.

8. Remember anyone can write fake reviews. Go with your first instinct – if something doesn’t feel right to you, it probably isn’t.

    We used Bedford House Clearance after finding them through their alternative company St Neots House Clearance on a google search.We were moving my Dad from Buckden up to Scotland to be near us due to his dementia. From the very first contact Louis was friendly, helpful and professional. He met me at my Dad's house during our whistle stop visit and gave sound advice regarding the scope of the works, actively encouraging me not to spend money that he felt would make no difference when selling the property.We agreed a price which I'm sure may not be the cheapest you might find but this is definitely a 'you get what you pay for' kind of company. They also have all the appropriate licenses so I had peace of mind that the contents from the house would all be disposed of appropriately.I trusted Louis from the moment we met and left him keys for the house as we were heading back to Scotland. He did exactly what he promised, when he said he would. This was a big job and the standard of work was exceptional. I also used Louis' company to clean the house following the clearance and was delighted with the results. He sent me videos of the entire house, garden and garage and what he had managed to achieve far exceeded my expectations.I would not hesitate to recommend Bedford House Clearance and would absolutely use them again if the need arose. Louis helped to make what was quite a stressful situation far more bearable. It's not often you come across individuals who restore your faith in human nature so emphatically but he did.

    Bedford House Clearance were so good, today they cleared the furniture from my late father’s house. I could not ask for better service.

    D Brawn

    Must admit that I was initially shocked at the quoted price and still believe it to be on high side. However, Louis took the time to explain the whole house clearance procedure and the costs involved when dealing with household waste. He was very professional and kept me fully informed at all times. On the day, he and his team arrived promptly and cleared my late mother's flat of everything, including carpets and underlay, unlike other operatives who pick and choose what they'll take. Would recommend this company for house clearance, removals etc.

    Louis and his team are fantastic. I've used them on four occasions to do four different jobs and I've been really pleased with the finished result each time. Louis himself is incredibly responsive, appears when he says he will, does what he says he'll do and keeps in contact until a task is finished. He is also very kind and thoughtful. I'll have absolutely no hesitation in putting more work his way. Thank you Louis.

    I cannot thank Louis enough for the excellent service I received during the clearance of my late sister’s property.Throughout the process from quote to final clearance Louis kept in daily contact via telephone, WhatsApp, email and text and because I’m not local to the area he also sent photographs of the team's daily progress throughout.Louis and his team made a very difficult and painful task all the more bearable despite the rather daunting task ahead of them and the icing on the cake was the priceless collection of family photographs Louis and his team retrieved for me.I highly recommend this family business who deliver exactly what they promise and do it with a smile!

    James Clifton

    Terrific service and highly recommended. We contacted Louis to see wether he could help with a house clearance near Bedford. We live in Bournemouth and after posting the keys to Louis he went to the property and came back to us with an extremely competitive quote. He talked us through what he was going to do and when it would be completed. We were contacted on the morning of the clearance and sent a video of the work carried out. I cannot thank Louis and his team enough for making a tricky job absolutely painless. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company and will definitely use them again. Refreshing to find a company that were prepared to go out of their way to help. Cheers
