Decluttering services

When you are planning to move out or sell your house in London, decluttering becomes one of the most important tasks. By decluttering your home you can sell your house quicker, as you will create a more airy and clear feel which will be more appealing to potential buyers. Buyers will be keen on buying if they like what they see!
If you are simply moving out, deciding what not to take with you will make your move easier and quicker. Rogers Removals can do it for you cheaply and efficiently. No need to spend thousands of pounds! Prices start at just £180 + VAT.

What do I need to do to prepare?

The service is designed to help you out, so the requirements asked of you are kept at a minimum. Moving home or selling a house is hard, and decluttering is one of the many services we offer to make the process easier. All you need to do is tell us what rooms you need help with, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Why does decluttering matter? I’m selling it anyway

If you’re trying to sell your home, you need to make sure that it’s in the most appealing state that’s possible. Even if someone is going to completely renovate the place, it’s hard to see the full potential of a space if it’s full of stuff. Emptying your old home of clutter will help the estate agent to get the best price for you and should make the process quicker and more efficient.

Where will all my things go?

Where your possessions go will depend on where you tell us to put them. There are essentially two options, listed below:

  1. We put your things into storage, where they can be kept for as long as you need until you either have time to sort them out or decide that you want to dispose of them.
  1. We dispose of your possessions, either taking them to a local charity shop or a waste disposal site.

All you need to tell us is what you want us to do, and we take care of the rest.

How long will the process take?

Once you’ve booked a date, the actual process of decluttering could take as little as a day. It’s far quicker for external teams to deal with your possessions; what makes the decluttering process slower is when you have a sentimental attachment with each piece, which obviously doesn’t apply to external professionals.

How long it takes will of course depend on the amount of material that needs to be sorted, and a more exact estimate will be provided when you ask us for a quote.

Do I need help decluttering?

Whether you need help or not depends on how much stuff you need to sort through and how much time you have. Clutter can build up over the years, and if you’ve lived in the same house for ten or twenty years, the amount of clutter can be astounding.

It’s likely that you’ll have a lot of other commitments on your mind if you’re moving home or selling your house, not to mention general life commitments like work and family.

If it all feels too much to sort through your accumulated possessions, then you likely need help with decluttering. If you’re not sure if our services are appropriate for your exact situation, reach out to our team on 020 8368 7779 for some expert advice.

Questions we’re often asked

When should I start decluttering?

Decluttering is often quite an emotional process, and because of that, it’s easy to put it off, to procrastinate getting started. As a result, the best time to start decluttering is as soon as you’re able to. Starting sooner rather than later will mean that you won’t have to deal with it in the days before you move.

One of the great things about professional decluttering is that for our workers, there isn’t that sense of emotional attachment, meaning the process can be carried out in a far shorter time frame. It’s easier for people to be objective about the value of objects when they’re operating in a professional capacity, making the process faster and more efficient. That said, it’s always best to book our decluttering services in advance, to ensure that we aren’t fully booked out on the date you require our help.

How involved do I need to be in the process?

If you’re moving house, it’s likely that you won’t have the time to help with decluttering, which is why you’ll be looking for a service like the one we offer.

You can be involved in the process to whatever degree you like, although our removal experts will be able to work more effectively if there isn’t too much interference. Letting go of the process can be helpful, and it’ll let you spend your time and energy on more important things related to moving out of and potentially selling your house.

How much will it cost?

How much it costs to declutter your home will depend on how much clutter you have. The price will depend on how long it takes our team, and how much stuff needs moving, boxing, and storing.

For a more precise quote, reach out to our team on 020 8367 7779, and they’ll be able to give you a more precise estimate based on the information you give them. It can be hard to judge how much clutter you have, so that quote may be different to the actual cost, but our team will be able to better judge this when they see the property in person.

What if you throw away something valuable?

The perceived value of clutter is often inflated compared to its real value, but we don’t throw away your belongings if you don’t want us to.

If you suspect there may be items of value, we can store the clutter in one of our secure storage containers until you have the time to sort through it. If you later decide that the clutter can be thrown away, we can arrange for its disposal. It might be a good idea to quickly scan the area before our removal experts come over, to ensure that there’s nothing of obvious value that may be mixed in with the rest of the clutter.
