How a house clearance in Leeds works

Provide a few details about what you need for your house clearance in Leeds, and we’ll give you a free no obligation quote. This includes an estimate of what needs removing from the property, where it is in Leeds, when you want the house clearance to take place, and any access issues.

On the day of your house clearance, one of our purple trucks with two or more of our team will come to the property, depending on the scale of the clearance. They’ll pick up and remove all the furniture, appliances, and other waste you requested, loading it into the van for an effortless clear-out. 

It’s then transported to a waste transfer station in Leeds for inspection and sorting. We aim to divert as much waste away from landfill as possible, so anything in a usable condition may go to a local charity. Items beyond repair will be recycled and disposed of responsibly, depending on the waste and material type.

For big house clearance jobs in Leeds, we may need to do more than one trip or use two or more vans and trucks. However, we’ll let you know in advance if this is the case based on the details you provide in the first place when getting a free quote.


Who needs a house clearance in Leeds?

Selling a house in Leeds, moving into a new one that needs clearing of stuff, and cleaning a property after a death are common times when Leeds house clearance services prove helpful. For both new and existing homeowners, it can make getting rid of furniture, white goods, and other big bulky items much easier.

There were around 9,400 sales of residential properties across Leeds in the last year. Most were for semi-detached houses and just under 3% were for new build homes. That’s a lot of house moves to create all sorts of waste that won’t be moving with you. Homeowners, renters, landlords, students, and families can all benefit from a Leeds house clearance when you:

Sell your home to get rid of big, bulky items you won’t take with you or that aren’t in usable condition. 

Buy a new house and need to clear out anything left behind by the previous owner or from DIY jobs, such as taking up carpets.

Leave at the end of a tenancy, renters and students may need a hand disposing of furniture and other waste.

Have to clear out a loved one’s home after they’ve passed away.

Local recycling centres in Leeds

You can take all sorts of domestic waste to the eight household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) in Leeds when clearing out a home. Most accept furniture, electrical items, appliances, fridge freezers, scrap metal, wood, textiles, and more. Plasterboard, rubble, and soil are accepted at some sites, but charges may apply.

If you visit in a commercial vehicle, a large vehicle, or with a trailer to drop off waste from a house clearance, you’ll need a permit. For landlords and businesses dealing with commercial waste, you can only take it to the waste transfer stations in Kirkstall and Seacroft and must be a licensed waste carrier.

All eight sites have the same opening hours and contact details. The last entry is 15 minutes before closing time.

Opening hours

Between 31 October 2022 to 26 March 2023 – 8am to 4pm

  • Does Leeds City Council do house clearances?

    Leeds City Council doesn’t offer a complete house clearance service. However, they do provide an unwanted items collection for private residents that live in the Leeds council tax area. This includes for items including furniture, carpets, electrical items, doors, and garden waste. Each collection is limited to five items, and you can only have up to four collections a year.

    Certain items are exempt from the service too. These include rubble, kitchen units, garden sheds, bathroom suites, window frames, and more.



  • How long does a Leeds house clearance take?

    Various factors affect how long a house clearance in Leeds will take. This includes where the house is, its size, and accessibility (such as the number of staircases). How many items you need removing and their size also affect the time. We can provide a rough estimate of how long it might take when you get a free quote.

    Our team work quickly and flexibly to ensure as little disruption as possible. Sometimes we may use more than one vehicle or have to make extra trips for particularly big jobs. But we’ll let you know in advance if this is the case.
