Obtaining a house clearance quote or carrying out a clearance during COVID-19/Coronavirus

  • Visits maintaining social distancing. We are able to visit properties to carry out a quote, whilst observing social distancing guidelines. The Green Clearance Company staff will be able to enter the property with you, and will keep a distance of 2 metres apart – this may mean that one of us may need to go into a hallway or another room. We are also happy to enter your property alone to carry out a quote if you would rather wait outside. We are happy to wear masks, and are regularly washing hands and using hand sanitiser, and welcome being asked to do so in your home.
  • Send photographs. We accept photos of the items or rooms you need to be cleared. Please make these as detailed as possible to capture all items you wish to be cleared. If you have quite a few photos, you can put these into a .zip file to send via email to or using our ‘Contact Us’ form – we also appreciate any general overview or description you can provide. We may need to contact you for further information.
  • Neighbours. We are able to collect house keys from a trusted neighbour of friend, or to meet them at the property. We are often asked to communicate with neighbours or relatives that are keyholders, especially if the householder has perhaps inherited a property and doesn’t live locally.
  • Estate Agents or Solicitors. We can also liaise with estate agents and solicitors to collect keys. We regularly work with these trusted professionals and it works very well. Keys will be dropped back to the estate agents office. Alternatively they can meet us at the property.
  • Key Safes. Key safes are often installed for carers or relatives to use for vulnerable or elderly people. If your property has a key safe, we are happy to collect a key from the safe and replace it when we leave. We will always check that this is locked before we leave.

I am shielding and have items to be cleared

If you are shielding, high risk or clinically vulnerable, please carefully consider all of the above options before contacting us and seek advice if you need to. If you have only have a few items to be cleared and would prefer us not to enter your home, we can collect agreed items from outside your home.
