Hospiscare House Clearance are making some changes to the service

With over 7 years' experience, the Hospiscare House Clearance team are updating their service.

The Hospiscare House Clearance team have over 7 years’ experience providing a professional, respectful and efficient clearance service for properties in Exeter, Mid and East Devon. The House Clearance service helps raise much-needed funds by providing a regular supply of quality stock to sell in Hospiscare shops. Delivering an excellent service for people who are downsizing, moving out of the area or dealing with an estate, the team treat every property with care and sensitivity to make what can be a difficult time, simple and straightforward.

The money raised from the sale of items donated via clearances provide vital funds for patient care, but shifting market conditions have resulted in changes to the types of clearance services offered. The ‘Full Clearance’ service which leaves a property completely empty and clean is a chargeable service. The ‘Partial Clearance’ service, which previously included a free collection of up to 7 items of furniture and other saleable sorted and boxed items, is now being discontinued.

“The decision to stop offering the ‘Partial Clearance’ service was necessary due to rising operational costs and increasing pressure on resources,” explains Head of Retail, Helen Hutter. “To ensure we make the best use of time and resources to maximise the funds raised for patients, we have discontinued the ‘Partial Clearance’ service. Hospiscare will still be offering free collections of saleable furniture and white goods but we will no longer be collecting boxes or bags of homewares, clothes, books or other smaller items. These items will still be gratefully received at your local Hospiscare shop.

“This service change will create more space in our vans for collections of higher value items which helps raise more money from our collection service to fund care for patients at your local hospice.”

The House Clearance team will fully empty your property and leave it sparkling clean. Each clearance is reviewed individually and a quote provided based on the scale of the job; the travel distance from Hospiscare’s Exeter Warehouse to the location; and the number of items that cannot be donated and require disposal. If you need some help with a clearance the House Clearance team will be happy to chat about your needs. Call 01392 453057 or email clearance@hospiscare.co.uk.

The Furniture Collections team will collect quality furniture and white goods that are in good working order for free. Call 01392 428823 to book a free collection.

Pre-loved homewares, small electrical items, clothes and accessories, books and other smaller donations can be dropped off at your local Hospiscare shop where they will be sold to raise money for Hospiscare patients.
