How a house clearance in Harrogate works

Request a free quote online or over the phone for a house clearance in Harrogate. Provide details about what you need removing, where the property is, and when you want the house clearance to take place. We’ll give you a fixed price and can book your Harrogate house clearance on a date that suits you.

On the day one of our purple vans with at least two of our team will come to the house. They’ll move everything you want to get rid of and load it into the van, so you don’t have to worry about all the heavy lifting and carrying. Then everything will be taken to a North Yorkshire waste transfer station.

All the items removed from the house will be checked and sorted. Working appliances and furniture in decent condition may be reused or sent to a charity. Anything unusable or in poor condition will be sent for recycling or responsible disposal, depending on its type. Everything is diverted away from landfill.

 Who needs a house clearance in Harrogate? 

There are around 70,000 households in Harrogate, including nearly 4,000 council properties, with new developments popping up all the time. When moving out, a house clearance in Harrogate can be helpful to responsibly get rid of any furniture, appliances, and other items that won’t be going to your new place – whether you rent or own your home.

Sadly, if a friend or family member passes away who lived in Harrogate, this is another common reason for using a house clearing service. Or you might simply be renovating your home and create lots of waste that’s easier to get rid of in one go with Divert.

Homeowners, renters, landlords, students, and families benefit from a Harrogate house clearance when:

  • Selling a house and getting rid of any items you can’t or don’t want to take with you to your new home. 
  • Moving into a new property and clearing anything the last owner left behind or getting rid of items when renovating (like old carpets and bathroom suites).
  • Leaving a property at the end of a tenancy and disposing of those large items you don’t want any more or can’t take with you.
  • Cleaning a property after a friend or family member’s death in preparation to put it on the market.
  • Renovating your current home or just getting rid of a few big items or many bags of waste in one go.

Local recycling centres in Harrogate

You can dispose of all sorts of domestic waste for free at the two main household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) in Harrogate – Harrogate HWRC and West Harrogate HWRC. This includes furniture, mirrors, radiators, and most electrical items – such as cookers, fridges, washing machines, dishwashers, TVs, and more. 

Any furniture with current fire labels attached (where relevant) and appliances in a usable condition can be left for reuse at either HWRC. Anything unusable should be recycled in the relevant container depending on its material, such as:

Wood – the wood recovery skip.

Metal – the scrap metal skip.

Mixed – the waste for energy recovery skip.

If you’re a landlord or looking to dispose of commercial waste from a business you can only take it to West Harrogate HWRC. Charges apply to dispose of most types of commercial waste. If you visit either site in a commercial vehicle (such as a van, pickup, or with a trailer) you’ll need to get a vehicle permit.

Another option for households in Harrogate is the council’s bulky waste collection service. However, this is limited to two items at a time at a current cost of £46.75. If you need more items removed then you must pay for extra collections. Your address also determines the time and date when collection happens, and all items must be placed outside the property.
