House Clearance Greenock Overview
Of course we are professionals, but sometimes it’s hard for the staff at House Clearance Greenock not to be emotionally affected by our work. One such case was when a client, an elderly lady, contacted us to do a complete house clearance of a house she’d been renting out in Greenock. She only had one rental house, a two-bedroomed flat on the ground floor of a small modern block, which she’d inherited when her sister had died a couple of years previously. Out of the goodness of her heart she’d rented it out at something below market value to a young family who she thought were a deserving case. Unfortunately, they’d taken advantage of the situation and had done a moonlight flit owing six months’ rent. Worse, they had left the house in an appalling state., hence the call to our House Clearance Greenock office.
House Clearance Requirements
The client wanted the house cleared and cleaned, and locks changed. We’ve seen properties in some terrible states over the years, but this was one of the worst. Furniture had been smashed beyond repair, the kitchen was filthy beyond description, the whole house was littered with discarded fast food wrappers, beer cans and miscellaneous rubbish, and carpets and furnishing were covered in cigarette burns. We did get chatting to one of the neighbours when we went to make our assessment of the property, and he told us the tenants had been the absolute neighbours from hell. Loud parties, fighting and shouting and other anti-social behaviour had been almost constant.
Disposal of Furniture, Junk & Contents
Unfortunately, there was very little in the house clearance that could be salvaged. We had to remove the furniture and carpets to the recycling centre in Greenock, although we were able to clean the cooker and refrigerator so they could continue in use. The kitchen as a whole needed a thorough deep cleaning to bring it up to an acceptable standard.
Our client had been very distressed by her experience as a landlady. We were pleased to be able to have completed the house clearance and return her property to her in good condition. As we have many good contacts in the estate agency business in Greenock, we were able to recommend one that we were confident would find dependable tenants. A few months later she wrote to say that the agents had found good tenants, “Thank you so much for all the assistance you gave me in clearing the flat and recommending a dependable agent to me. You went above and beyond the normal call of duty and this has gone a long way to restoring my faith in human nature.”
