How Much is a Typical House Clearance?
A typical London house clearance, based on a two-bedroomed property, can cost between £200-£580. We may need to charge more if you have a larger house to clear. Essentially, our house clearance costs are based on the volume of items you need us to remove and how much they fill our 15-cubic-yard trucks. The price of two operatives to lift and move your items will be included. Here’s a general guide:
How to Organise a House Clearance with KwikSweep
- Step 1: Tell us what you want us to dispose of, and we’ll work out a fair price. We may need to visit your property or ask you for photos to see the type and quantity of items or rubbish that needs removal. We’ll then provide a quote.
- Step 2: Before we visit, make sure your house clearance items are in a separate pile away from any goods you want to keep. This helps make the process of house clearing quick and efficient. You don’t need to worry about separating the items into piles for recycling. We’ll sort through it and recycle what we can to make sure as little as possible goes to landfill.
- Step 3: Be mindful about personal data. If you’re getting rid of old paperwork, USB sticks or computers, these may contain sensitive information you wouldn’t want to be exposed. So, shred any confidential documents and clean hard drives before collection.
- Step 4: When our operatives arrive, please provide guidance about any items that must be kept.
- Step 5: During the house clearance, we’ll ask you to make payment. Remember, you’ll only pay what we’ve quoted and nothing more.

Q: Are there any items you can’t take?
KwikSweep is unable to remove hazardous materials like chemicals and medical waste. This includes old paint tins, as these contain chemical residues. We also can’t take asbestos, fuel, ammunition or explosives, gas bottles and building materials.
Q: What happens to my items and junk when you take them away?
After clearing your house, our operatives take your items back to our head office, where they’re sorted for recycling. We also donate what we can so that goods with life left in them won’t go to waste. Overall, we can recycle or reuse 95% of the items we clear from houses. Any items that can’t be recycled are taken to the local landfill site, where they’re disposed of responsibly and safely. We only use landfill sites as a last resort due to the impact on the environment.
Q: How do you handle a bereavement house clearance?
We understand that when someone you love passes away, it’s an incredibly difficult and emotional time. And the last thing you’ll want to worry about is clearing out their home. If you can tell us what needs removing, we’ll carry out this task sensitively and respectfully, ensuring your loved one’s possessions are treated with care and recycled or reused if possible.
Q: Can you clear cluttered or hoarded properties?
Absolutely. We have lots of experience in clearing hoarded houses and work with many London councils to help with hoarding issues. We understand that hoarding disorder is very distressing for all parties involved, and we deal with such clearances sensitively and compassionately. Learn more about this service.
Q: How quickly can you carry out a full house clearance?
The time it takes to clear a whole house depends on the size of the property and the amount and type of items that need to be removed. A small one-bedroom flat might only take a few hours, whereas a five-bedroom house could take a few days.
Q: Do I need to be present on-site during my house clearance?
In an ideal world, it’s best if you’re there to guide our operatives on any items that shouldn’t be taken away. But if you can’t be on-site during your house clearance, that’s ok. However, we’ll need written instructions from you in advance about the items that need clearing and/or keeping.
Q: Do I need to dismantle furniture or other items before collection?
No – we will safely dismantle any items that require being broken down. We’ll do all the heavy lifting and clearing from your property, even if it’s a top-floor flat. You don’t need to lift a finger.
Q: Can you offer a same-day house clearance service?
We’ll always do our best to help you with urgent house clearances, and quite often, we can offer a same-day service. It does depend on what jobs we already have booked for that day, and where our operatives are in London. To increase your chances of a same-day house clearance, call us as early as possible with your enquiry.
“Same day rescue. I needed some furniture removed and was running out of time after being messed around by other companies. Thankfully I found KwikSweep. They took care of it within a few hours of my enquiry, and were easy to work with throughout. Great communication and the guys did a good job removing the items from a challenging space over a mezzanine and around tight corners. Will definitely use again and happy to recommend.”
~ Iain, Trustpilot review.
Q: Do house clearance companies pay you?
Some house clearance companies will pay you if you have saleable goods or antiques. However, at KwikSweep, we mainly focus on removing junk and rubbish for recycling and reuse rather than selling on. Hence, KwikSweep is unable to pay you for the items we collect.
Q: How can I make payment?
You don’t need to pay us until our operatives arrive and work is being carried out. We accept all card payments, whichever is convenient for you.
