Choose the family run business that can meet your needs

Chelmsford House Clearances is a small locally based and locally-run business serving Chelmsford and surrounding areas. We’re not part of a faceless franchise operation, but a part of the local community. Being small means we don’t spendfortunes on advertising we get the vast majority of our clients through professional contacts and by word of mouth.

Our motto is “Recycle not landfill”

Working closely with Charites and people in need our aim is to rehome and recycle as many items as possible.

We offer a friendly, efficient house clearance service in Chelmsford and across Essex, we are even happy to cover parts of the home counties. We are aware that house clearances are not always happy occasions and we do our best to be as compassionate and helpful as possible when this is the case. We are happy to work with property or estate agents or other representatives if clients are not present during clearances.

Based in Chelmsford we can help clear flats, retirement homes, bungalows, large or small houses, single rooms, lofts, garages, sheds, shops and offices, or just single items as required.

Not all clearances are the same, sometimes it’s easier to stagger the clearance to create space for the next stage of sorting, no problem for us, we are always happy to assist in this way.

Don't just take our word for it

Recycle

Roy and Jackie and the lads have been fantastic in clearing my mum and dads house.  They stepped in when other firms wouldn’t though I’m out of their area.  Thankfully they have been able to recycle a lot of things.  My mum n dad were givers so by them giving to charities it pleases me.  Would I use them again, without a doubt.  Very professional and very caring at what has been a very difficult and emotional time for me.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart guys

Spotless & Informed

To the point, look no further for your house clearances needs.   Chelmsford House Clearances are the best you will find.   What’s further to the point is that Roy provides an ethical and secure service.  Provisions from the house were redistributed to the needy, and my large library of books was catalogued for collection by the local school.  The house and garage were left spotless. Roy keeps you fully informed by photographs of the progress and results of the work being done.    And a final point is: do not hesitate; I fully endorse this firm.

Care and Respect

Roy and colleagues provided a very efficient service with good communication at all stages. Living at a considerable distance away from the house being cleared, being kept up to date with how the job was being done and how it was progressing was essential to set my mind at rest that the removal of the final large items from my fathers house was being done with care and respect. Roy also updated me on where some of the items had been housed for others to use. The reuse of the items was very important to me and played a key role in my choice of Chelmsford House Clearance. I would certainly recommend the company to others.

Grateful at a difficult time

Such a lovely couple, am so grateful for their ability to help me clear my mums house at what was already a difficult time, but during lockdown I thought it was going to be impossible. They made the task so much more bearable for me. Would definitely use again and I very much recommend to others. Thanks Roy and Jacqui x

Highly recommended

I highly recommend Chelmsford House Clearances. Roy and his team recently cleared a property that we rent and I was very impressed with the service. Roy is very professional and takes a lot of care, particularly when discussing the job and what is to be left and what to be removed. We live far away from the property and were able to be at the house for the quote but could not be there to see the finished job. This was not a problem- Roy took lots of photos for us and sent them over as soon as the clearance was completed. It was a relief to leave the house in safe hands and saved us A LOT of work! Thank you to Roy and his team.

Jenny Matthews

Thanks

This is just a quick message to thank you and your team for your excellent services in clearing my mother’s house. From first contact, right through to inspection and execution of the job, we have been impressed by your friendly and helpful manner, professionalism and attention to detail. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your services to others. Thanks for the photos confirming that the clearance has been completed.

    positive review  This family team came to my rescue when I needed to clear out my parent’s house in Great Baddow. At all times they were efficient, caring, considerate and cheerful, whilst maintaining a highly professional profile. Their communication skills were excellent too which was very important to me. What could have been a highly stressful event turned out not to be, and I can’t thank them enough. They successfully disposed of confidential material on-site, as well as leaving certain goods behind that had been identified by us for our buyers. I was glad to be able to donate some items to them for the Ukranian Charity which they support. Thank you to Roy and his amazing family team, particularly so under these strange times. I thoroughly recommend you contact Chelmsford House Clearance if you need such a service. Penny Knight.

  • positive review  So, around a month ago, just before Christmas, my washing machine died(only 2yrs old) Since then, I’ve been running back and forth to my beloved neighbour to do my washing. Like most of us, my cash flow is non existent, so trying to find a cheap washing machine, without transport to collect it, was problematic to say the least! Scrolling through FB, I came across a washing machine…a bargain at £45. Happy Xmas to me! However, I then had to find transport to collect it.. That was until I inquired about delivery options.. £20, so for £65 washing machine and delivery, which is more than reasonable. Problem was, I literally only had £50 I msgd Rob to let him know that I only had £50, expecting him to cancel the order. To my surprise, he took off the £20 delivery charge, and charged me just £45, not even taking the extra £5 I had. All of this took place last night, around 10.30, Rob (Mr Chelmsford Santa Claus) delivered my washing machine within 12/13hrs of me inquiring! Not sure if I should say this, but when he and his “elves”, 2 polite lads brought the machine in to my flat, I was absolutely ecstatic (am I the only person that gets excited over a washing machine??!!🤔😌) This man had fitted in my delivery last minute, waived the delivery charge and is an absolute genuine being, (few and far between these days) As I passed him the cash, he put his hand up and said”Merry Christmas”, are you kidding me? and he repeated it. This Man out of the goodness of his heart blessed me today and it actually brought a tear or two to my eyes… ‘happy tears’ as my lil one calls them. The moto on their business card is absolute gold they aim to recycle not landfill”….. I think that kinda says it all regards their ethics. The world is in need of more people like Mr Rob. I FULLY RECOMMEND these, and give them 11/10😁 Priceless business ethics and absolute gold customer service. Thanks to Chelmsford House Clearance doesn’t come close to the praise they deserve…. THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL. I HOPE YOU GET BLESSED FOR YOUR SERVICES, THE WAY YOU BLESS OTHERS… YOU ABSOLUTELY DESERVE IT 😁🙏😁

Roy is always really kind and generous and keen to help us out when there is something we need. We really appreciate the support of Chelmsford House Clearances when we need an item if they haven’t got one immediately they often ring back when they have. We are really grateful for their support.

Thank you Chelmsford House Clearances for your kind donations.  We are currently selling some lovely dog beds recycled from some of your contributions to raise fund in particular for Gloria, who was booked for PTS at 7 weeks old due to being poorly until we offered to take her. Her bill to date is over £2000 & in vets today for an op for PRAA which will be a further £3000.  We couldn't do this without kind people donating.
