Our House Clearance Services | Featonby's North East Auction House

House Clearances

Among our many services as expert valuers and auctioneers, we offer house clearance services – a practical undertaking that typically follows the passing of a loved one.

As this can be a sufficiently stressful and emotional time aside from any practical, financial or legal duties, our professional and understanding team make it their mission to take this particular task off your to-do list and, in this one, small way, make the whole process a little less overwhelming.

What is a house clearance?

A house clearance involves the safe and sensitive removal of any and all saleable items found in the home, ensuring any unwanted belongings from the property which hold monetary value as antiques or collectibles can be sold at auction for the best possible price.

No two home clearances are quite the same, as they’re always driven by the needs of our customers and the range of belongings in question. In terms of the sorts of items that can typically be sold at auction, these include (but are by no means limited to) furniture, fine art such as paintings and photography, crockery, cultural memorabilia and all manner of other antiques and collectibles.

Depending on your circumstances and requirements, we can tailor our service to suit you. Our house clearance services typically include:

  • Full and partial house clearances: in some cases, the whole property may not require a clear-out – so we can focus our time as you see fit
  • The disposal of non-saleable items: this way, you can avoid having to arrange transport yourself to have these disposed of by a third party
  • The option to have your home professionally cleaned by our dedicated cleansing team: this ensures that the property is looking its best and is ready to go on the market – taking this time-consuming job off your plate
  • Garden tidy-ups: this can be especially useful if the garden in question is looking unkempt, overgrown or generally neglected
