House Clearance & Clearing Services Melbourne

Every client and every house is different; therefore how “Home Moving Planners” prepares a property for SALE or for SETTLEMENT with our house clearing or house clearance services is dependent on the individual situation.

  • If the owner of the property has already moved to aged care or the property is a deceased estate and the property has already been SOLD; all remaining furniture and possessions left inside the property, need to be removed/sold/taken to storage/given to family or friends and unwanted goods are sorted into charity or landfill. The property then needs to be thoroughly cleaned.
  • If the owner of the property is still residing in the house and is moving home in the near future; “Home Moving Planners” help our client decide what they need/can take with them to their new home (particularly if they are downsizing or moving to aged care)/what will go to storage, family or friends, and unwanted goods are to be sorted into charity or landfill. All our client’s possessions need to then be packed up and moved to their new place, where they then need to be unpacked and their new home set up. “Home Moving Planners” then need to return to the old property and make sure it is thoroughly cleaned.
  • If this is the second stage of “Home Moving Planners” work (that is, we have already prepared the property for SALE) and:
    • The owners have already moved onto aged care or the property is a deceased estate, all possessions will have already been cleared, therefore only remaining furniture used to stage the property for sale will need to be removed/sold/given to a family member or friends, charity or landfill and the property thoroughly cleaned.
    • The owners were residing in the property during the sale period and are about to move to their new place. “Home Moving Planners” then need to work with our clients and help them decide what they need/can to take with them to their new home (particularly if they are downsizing or moving to aged care)/what will go to storage, family or friends, and unwanted goods are to be sorted into charity or landfill and the property thoroughly cleaned.

Why choose us?

  • Home Moving Planners staff are experienced expert declutter and sorting specialists. Our staff are experienced trained experts at finding important items such as wills, personal papers and financial documents that could be crucial to solicitors, executors of estates and family in winding up a probate or other legal and financial matters on the estate. We often find important documents related to banking, shares, investments that family members and beneficiaries were unaware of.
  • We also understand that in a loved ones homes there may be other important items, valuables and even money inside the home. It takes a skilled expert professional to quickly and carefully sort through a home to find items that may be hidden, sometimes in inconspicuous places amongst other possessions. Our staff have found lost wedding rings and between $15,000-$17,000 hidden in places such as a seamstress’s clothing patterns, in between books and even wadded up in dirty tissues stuffed in the lining of a bedside table. It’s important to choose a business whose staff are honest and well trained to sort through possessions, and don’t just come in and throw things out because on first glace they look like rubbish!
  • We have short turn around times to prepare homes ready for market. In most cases we can prepare a home for sale 1-2 weeks of beginning depending on the services required.
  • We organise reputable and reliable second hand dealers to visit the property to give a valuation on any saleable furniture and goods prior to the decluttering process starting, so that money can be given back to the estate for saleable contents.
  • We provide our own in house rubbish removal that is fast and cost effective compared to using expensive skip bins. This way the skip isn’t left outside your home so your neighbours can use it until it is ready to be collected. We are also able to do multiple loads of rubbish in one day so that you don’t have to wait for a skip bin to be collected and replaced, which could delay the time taken to clear your property for sale. You also only pay for the rubbish that is removed, that is if you only have 3 cubic metres of rubbish this is all you pay for, unlike skip bins where you pay for the full 6 cubic metres even if it is only half filled.
  • We can offer a range of other services to help prepare a home for sale and settlement, such as cleaning, property styling, gardening and maintenance.
  • We are a family owned and operated business with family values. Our culture is to treat all of our clients as if they were our own family.
