House Clearance Kirkintilloch Overview
Our House Clearance Kirkintilloch staff were contacted by the owner of a large office in the city centre who required a complete clearance of the space. The office was on the fifth floor of a modern high rise building. The company that had recently occupied the space had gone bankrupt and left the office in a bad condition. There were numerous shelves, desks, boxes and cabinets to be removed, as well as office equipment, most of it broken. The property owner wanted the premises completely cleared so that he could get it rented out as soon as possible. He was keen that we should act quickly since he was losing money every day that the office was empty.
House Clearance Requirements
The building had a large service lift, so that made our job reasonably easy. There was a large quantity of desks and chairs to remove, so we started with these. Most of them were in a good condition, so we made sure that they were separated to be reused. There were a number of computers, some of which still worked, and lots of heavy cabinets. Some documents remained inside the cabinets, so we made sure these were separated and shredded for privacy reasons.
We finished removing the last item from the office at 3 p.m. then our team spent three hours giving the office a thorough clean. The whole job was finished not long after 6 p.m.
Disposal of Furniture, Junk & Contents
Most of the shelves, cabinets, office chairs and desks were in good enough condition to be reused, so we arranged for these to be sent to a number of charity shops in Kirkintilloch. The electrical equipment was disposed of in accordance with the WEEE directive which dictates how such waste is recycled. Paper and cardboard waste was all recycled also in Kirkintilloch.
Our client was very impressed by our work, especially by how quickly we’d completed the job. He’d thought we’d be there for at least a week rather than one day! He got in touch a couple of months later with another office clearance. Much of our business comes from clients who come back to us again and again because they know they can trust us to do an excellent job.
