Moving house or having to clear a property when a loved one passes away is a very stressful time and a professional, knowledgeable and efficient house clearance service will take much of the pressure off.
Our valuer will visit the property and advise on all aspects of both sale by auction and disposal of remaining items. Everything from valuable antiques and collectable items to specialist lots and household belongings like fridges and shed or loft contents. We also auction vehicles from house clearances.
If an estate requires a written valuation for Probate purposes this will be carried out quickly and efficiently, the valuer will advise on the cost for this service, after which we will arrange for our removal team to clear the full contents to the auction room for sale and dispose of all unsaleable items.
We welcome enquiries from all appointed Executors, Solicitors, Estate Agents and family members dealing with all matters relating to estate administration and probate valuation.
