Getting Around to Clearing Out Your Garage
Garage clearance is a comprehensive service, removing everything from a garage building and disposing of it in a safe and secure way, is a very common service we provide.
It’s ideal for anyone who has a habit of stashing anything they might one day use – but it’s also helpful for anyone moving house, emptying the property of a loved one, or a garage landlord looking to clear out the discarded belongings of a previous tenant.
Garage clearance is rapidly becoming an in-demand service, as more people look to either renovate an under-used part of their property or else get rid of accumulated junk in readiness to sell. The booming housing market post-COVID has created a surge in homeowners seeking to maximise their square footage, as well as encouraging more movement up and down the property ladder.
What’s more, the number of people with garages that are no longer used for cars has increased in recent years, meaning there are even more hoarded homewares in need of removal. According to a recent estimate by the RAC, 36.7% of houses – equivalent to 11 million homes – have a garage, yet just over half of these are not even used for the car.
The RAC report found that 53% of respondents with garages never parked their cars in them, with the number one reason being that the garage space is too full of other items. The main culprits for taking up space are DIY tools, garden tools and furniture, bicycles and camping equipment.
Little wonder, then, that garage clearance is such a sought-after service. For homeowners who’ve lived in a property for a number of years, especially during their twenties to forties – the time of life when most of us undertake the majority of physical tasks such as DIY, cycling and heavy duty gardening – there can be a surprising quantity of belongings awaiting organisation. Add children into the mix, and the amount of items requiring storage can easily double – think trampolines, football nets, and all of the baby items you never got around to reselling.

Garages vary considerably in size and range from single car, single door garage to multiple car sizes so understandably, our garage clearance costs vary too.
At the cheap end, single car garage clearance starts at £95 + VAT but this will also be impacted by what your garage contains, for example, your garage may contain bits and pieces that are only covering the floor of the garage or, it may be full to the ceiling of things you want us to remove? This is precisely why you need to send us some photos of your garage, we can then provide you with our best quote for the job of clearance and disposal.
The weight of the garage contents has a bearing on our costs too so, if your garage floor is full of concrete paving blocks that used to belong in the garden then these may not be fully loaded into our vans as we have to abide by our safe carrying weight limits which would lead us having to cost for multiple journeys, before your garage became empty. We hope you can see the potential problems that can arise.
Here’s a list of bulky, heavy items that impact clearance costs.
- Old tyres and wheel rims.
- Paints, tins of unused household paint that are no longer required and have just been put in the garage over the years.
- Garden rubble particularly concrete posts, bricks, pillars and ornamental concrete items.
- Steelwork, old lintels or beams that have been taken out of the main house after modernisation or upgrade.
At all times we do our level best to bring you the cheapest quote we can offer for garage clearance but a word of caution here, we have been asked a number of time to remove old asbestos from garages after renovation work has been carried out but if you have this problem it is best to get in touch with our asbestos manager who can advise on the safe removal and legal disposal of this material, please see our main asbestos page which will be helpful to you.
