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

“Recommended by a good friend, I used Chelmsford House Clearances to clear out my father-in-law’s house at the start of the summer. Jackie and Roy were great and did everything we agreed.”
“Thank you for your help, flexibility and the jokes. It wasn’t a happy day, as you know, but you did at least help it pass as smoothly as possible. Steph.”
“I could not believe this team, it took them just a day and a half to clear a three bedroom semi, very caring and very professional… Fantastic effort.”

Just have to give Roy and his team a big thank you for today!  We needed to clear my Father-in-Law's house at very short notice and Chelmsford House Clearances did a fantastic job.  They went above and beyond to make sure the job was done swiftly and without any stress for my wife.  They were very professional and caring, in a situation that can sometimes be emotional fo the people involved.  We would highly recommend this family run business.

Andy S Big Thank You

This place is like a treasure cove. I originally found this place because they were very generous and helpful with supporting our school. Then I found some amazing gems for myself.

Jamie D Big Thank You

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 😁🙏😁

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.

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

Great service from Roy and family from start ‘til end. Responsive in getting a quote done quickly and able to carry out the clearance promptly.

Peter & Dannie J Caring

Thank you so much for today - I can’t tell you how much more bearable you all made it for me.  You were all so kind and considerate and worked so hard. I really really appreciated it.

Claire Kind & Considerate

I can't recommend Roy, Jackie and the team at Chelmsford House Clearances highly enough. I had been dreading clearing my father's home where he had lived for 60 years.  Friends of mine had said they had been really impressed with the service they had received so I gave Roy a call. I was so pleased to think that some of my father's furniture could find a new home rather than being dumped.  The service was amazing, and as I wasn't able to be there for the complete clearance, Roy sent photos showing their progress throughout. Their attention to detail was first class and they contacted me when they found a couple of items I had overlooked which as it turned out were important documents.  First class, friendly service, what a refreshing  change!

Jacquie E 60 years

Many thanks for doing such a great job today please pass on my thanks to your team my wife was so grateful for the support today.

Simon Many thanks

Thank you so much for taking care of the final house clearance.  You were so helpful and understanding when I had to change the date and also assuring me that all the precious possessions would not end up in landfill.  It meant a lot to me.

Nicky Care

From the first phone call to the very last pickup. Roy, Jackie and the team were totally amazing. I initially discussed what I thought would be a difficult timeline to which Roy just casually replied "Yes, we can do that" Roy put me at ease immediately and made me feel like nothing was too much to ask. He arrived on the day we arranged. Took some photos, discussed our needs and never once seemed phased by the task ahead. On the day of the clearance the team arrived and went in full steam ahead. We couldn't believe what we were seeing as the full house gradually disappeared into vans and mobile skips. The rickety old shed was dismantled, the overgrown garden was cleared and tidied, the loft was emptied and all in the space of maybe 5-6 hours!! They left us with some living essentials until the end of our stay and then arrived on the morning of our leaving to clear the last pieces out. I honestly can't recommend these guys highly enough. If you use them, you will see exactly why I have given them such a glowing review. Thanks to all at Chelmsford House Clearances. You guys are amazing!

Lee R You need look no further

Thank you so much to you and your team for all your help again. It has made our life so much easier and another task we can tick off! Best regards to you all

Niz W 5 Star

Fantastic service from Roy and the team - as I was unable to be at the property in person, Roy set up a video call to walk through the property and establish exactly which items were to be cleared. The clearance itself was carried out professionally, and the team went above and beyond in keeping me informed on progress. I was also pleased to hear that one item was donated to a family in need on the same day. Can recommend Chelmsford House Clearances as a reliable and truly ethical company.

Carlin P Fantastic Service
