How a house clearance in Bradford works

Start by getting a free quote tailored to your needs for a house clearance in Bradford. Provide details of the property type and address, and when you want it cleared – as well as the types and the number of items you want removing. We can then book a date that suits you.

One of our purple vans or trucks will come out on the day with a couple of our team. They’ll lift and load all your waste items into the van, so you can relax. Then it’ll be driven to a nearby waste transfer station. Two trips may be required, depending on the size and amount of waste being removed.

The items will be checked and sorted. Anything in decent condition might be donated to a local charity or community cause for reuse. Everything else will be sent for recycling or responsible disposal alongside similar materials – diverted away from landfill. You’ll receive a free duty of care certificate confirming its responsible disposal.
