Customer Reviews
Why we prefer to assess before
quoting  -  to safeguard you.
We don't want to place the emphasis on you
to assess a situation you may never have
come across before.

We don't expect you to decide what is a lot
or a little clutter, or how big a van WE will
need and is there space for it, or how long a
job may take.

We want to give you the best price possible,
not one that is hedged to take into account
all the possibilities.

We consider it dishonest how some firms
have hidden get out clauses allowing
increases if you get it wrong.       
We want
to give a written binding quote.

We make an allowance on items we can
assess but cannot otherwise.

We want to give you peace of mind as to all
the job entails and how we will handle it .

We are happy to put in extra effort and go
those extra miles to make sure you are well

Important Facts about us
A deceased estate can be a stressful matter for
family members to deal with.
It is our policy that a partner has total involvement
with all aspects of a deceased estate clearance.  Do
as much or as little as you WANT to. We can remove
everything (including clothing and personal items) if
that makes the job less onerous for you. Call us in
early and let our experience advise you, especially
about the legal aspects of valuing and disposing of
items.  Document shredding is automatic.

A Strange situation and a Customer Review and

We were asked to give our opinion on a situation that Mr Ward was worried
Save the Children UK  had been left a house, a Solicitor had
commissioned a house clearance without asking for a quote and received an
exorbitant bill and paid it. Town or Country were asked to give our opinion on
the right price for the task and received the following in thanks.
                 Friday, 22 June 2012,          
Dear Mr Hall,

Thank you very much for looking at this for us and for providing such
comprehensive advice.

We were struggling to see why anyone would instruct a company without at
least getting a rough quote in advance, and your email has confirmed our
fears that we have been significantly overcharged. We would have expected a
similar fee to that as you have outlined and will now go back to the solicitors
and tell them as such.

Many thanks again to you and Mr Douglas. We are most grateful. Should we
have any properties in the region again, we will be sure to instruct Town or
Country Clearance.

Kind regards,
Tom Ward │ Legacy Case Manager │ Save the Children UK
The truthful answer is maybe or maybe not

To conduct a clearance we incur costs - labour, transport and tipping fees.
We need to recoup these costs and make a profit.

If the
second hand value of items
a) exceeds these costs we pay the client
b) equals these costs we remove everything for free
c) is lower than our costs we reduce the fee in an agreed way.

If there is no second hand value then you pay for the clearance. Any fee is only payable after
satisfaction and invoicing.

So the answer to the question is it depends on the size of property, its position, and many other
factors AND the quantity and value of the items inside.
Without an assessment we can't determine any of these factors, or the value of items, so any
telephone quote is meaningless.

After our
free assessment we put the facts into a written quote writing and they become
BINDING - any fee will never go up BUT if we have significantly overestimated it will be reduced.

We will
RECYCLE as much as possible, and DONATE to any designated charity shops.
