Frequently Asked Questions
Our House Clearance Manager, Lloyd Bartlett, answers some of your frequently asked questions.
Q. Do I need to be at the property whilst you’re clearing?
A. No, it’s entirely up to you! you do not have to be at the property, we appreciate that it can be a very hard time to see a loved one’s items go. As long as our team has access to the property, we can update you when necessary.
Q. Why do you charge for house clearances, when you’re receiving items to sell on behalf of the hospice from the house?
A. We are deeply grateful to our customers when we receive so much to sell, however there are so many costs to consider when operating that you may not be aware of. This includes, running cost of the van, and the price to dispose of waste includes items that are hazardous. It all adds up, however we pride ourselves on being extremely good value. You’ll find we are the most competitive.
Q. So, Why Big Green? When there are so many other companies out there?
A. Everything we clear that is saleable goes into our retail outlets, generating much needed funds to support hospice care. The clearance fee also goes towards the hospice. By using our Big Green clearance service, you are also helping the environment. If we cannot sell an item, we will upcycle or recycle it reducing landfill and global carbon emissions.
