House Clearance Dumbarton Overview

A firm of solicitors contacted House Clearance Dumbarton as they were working for a family whose elderly mother had recently passed away. She’d been in residential care for a year before her death, and the family home had been occupied by one of her daughters who was unmarried. The family had now decided to sell the house, which was a large five-bedroomed Georgian town house on the edge of Dumbarton. The house had been kept in good order over the years and the family now wanted to clear out personal belongings, furniture and domestic items before selling the property. We were also instructed to remove the fitted kitchen which had seen better days.

House Clearance Requirements

Our Dumbarton house clearance staff arrived at 7.30am. The first job was to remove everything from the kitchen, including the fridge, freezer, washing machine and dishwasher, all of which were still in working order. We then dismantled the kitchen cabinets leaving the space ready for the planned refit.

We cleared all the other furniture and general household effects from the house. Although the family had already removed most of the lady’s personal effects and some pieces of valuable furniture, we came across an unmarked cardboard box under one of the beds, which had apparently been there for some time judging by the dust on top of it. Inside were two antique teddy bears which we recognised as being made by Steiff. These bears from the late 19th and early 20th century are extremely collectable, and since these examples were in very good condition, they were undoubtedly very valuable. We immediately handed the bears over to the solicitor.

The house clearance was completed by 4pm, and then we started work on cleaning the house. This took a further three hours so we completed the job at 7 p.m. One of the solicitors arrived to check over everything and confirmed that the job had been completed to a high standard.

Disposal of Furniture, Junk & Contents

Much of the furniture was in good condition, as were the white goods, so we donated some to a local charity shop in Dumbarton and the remainder to a charity that works with homeless people who are being rehoused. We took paper and cardboard waste to the local recycling centre. Nothing was sent to landfill, which is our aim with every house clearance.

Client Recommendation

The solicitor who checked over the property was very pleased with the house clearance and especially the standard of the deep clean. Later, he emailed us to say “The family were delighted to be reunited with the Steiff bears. They told me that they had puzzled over what had happened to them, and after their Mother’s death, thought they might never find them. They asked me to pass on their sincere thanks to you and your staff.”
