What is the actual process?

The first stage, typically discussed over the phone, involves setting the scene, explaining any specifics, the project, and timing, and discussing your relationship with the homeowner.

Next, we will schedule a home visit to meet you in person, further uncover requirements, and within 24 hours, email you a written report and quote. Our meeting will include recommendations for unwanted items, distribution of wanted items, and decision making assistance.

Don’t discard items. Often, we have salvaged saleable or donatable items from a skip.​


When determining what to keep, focus on the items you want only.​


Sorting through everything can be overwhelming on its own, let alone deciding what to do with unwanted items.​

Consider the case of opening the buffet unit filled with English crockery, knick-knacks, collectables, silverware, crystal, and other items. Just remove what you want, ignore the rest, then close the doors and move on to the next area.​

Don’t attempt a garage sale due to the risk of untrustworthy people, poor weather, and the hassle of setting up. Plus, only the better items may be removed, leaving you with the rest.

When overwhelmed with decisions or facing a problem, simply say, “ClearSpace will deal with it.”​

If you’re emotionally drained, ask the ClearSpace team to sort specific items or categories for you.​

Once comfortable with the ClearSpace team, approve the quote and pay the deposit, and the work begins.​

ClearSpace begins by sorting unwanted items based on priority – sell, donate, recycle, hazardous, and disposal. As we sort, an inventory list of all unwanted items is compiled.

Proceeds from any sold items get returned to the estate via a bank transfer to the account you nominate.​

If packing and distributing or storing wanted items is desired, we’ll handle that too.
