Our house clearance service

At Shelter, we offer a sympathetic, professional house clearance service that is here to help you.

We offer both a full house clearance service (chargeable) and a part house clearance for free. To arrange a clearance service, give us a call and tell us whether you'd like a full or part clearance service and the area in which you live.

We'll arrange a day and time for our helpful team to visit and we'll pick up all good quality items for free.
