When arranging an office clearance it is important to consider the following points.
Take time to list and separate what you wish to keep and what is to be sent for waste disposal. This will make it easier for the clearance company to estimate the cost of the waste removal.
When considering the timescale for the removal of your rubbish work out the date it needs to be cleared by and then work backwards to allow enough time to organise the clearance. Allow plenty of time ensuring you factor in the time involved in the company completing the clearance. Remember waste companies will need time to complete the job including loading and disposing of the waste. This will be more time consuming if they need to do multiple trips to dispose of the waste. Depending on the size of the property you must also consider the time it will take them to transport the waste from the office to the waste van, particularly if they have to negotiate obstacles such as stairs etc. Most reputable and experienced companies should be able to give you not only an estimated cost but also a good idea of how long they expect the job to take them. Planning in advance means that you will also not be left with less choice over which contractor to use due to the best ones being booked up.
It is important to be picky about which clearance firm you use. Don’t be tempted to just go with the cheapest rubbish removal service. Make sure they are authorised by the Environment Agency. It is important to look at reviews and references, make sure they have the right tools for the job. If it is going to be a big job make sure they have a suitably sized team who can help and a vehicle fit for purpose. Of course it is also important to ensure their rates are competitive and they provide a detailed breakdown of their estimate as this is a good indication that they not only know what they are doing but they are prepared for what is involved in completing the job. If their quote is significantly lower than the competition then be cautious, if it looks too good to be true it probably is.
On completion of the job you should receive a waste transfer note to confirm that the waste has been disposed of legally and responsibly.
