How to find a reliable Bournemouth House Clearance company
It may sound easy but there is a lot to consider, take for instance this notice copied from the defra.gov.uk website If fly-tipped waste is traced back to a particular household, the householders could be fined up to £5000. However, the ultimate aim is not to fine people, but to ensure that they use registered waste carriers

Steps to finding a Bournemouth House Clearance company

1. Check to make sure they have a waste removal licence
2. Get a reference
3. Ask how long they have been in business
4. Get at least one other bid for the job to make sure they are not totally ripping you off
5. Find a Bournemouth House Clearance company that will give you some idea of prices over the phone. Although, it is likely it will be only a rough estimate, as they will need to see what the rubbish is, before giving you an accurate price
6. Ask neighbours and relatives for Bournemouth House Clearance referrals.

Why use House Clearance instead of a skip?
The rubbish House Clearance Company, does all the loading and cleans up for you and their charges reflect only the volume of junk they remove. With skip hire you have to pay for the entire volume of the skip, regardless of how much you fill. There is also the added hassle and expense of having to apply for a skip hire permit in advance and the fact that you have to do all the loading and clearing up yourself. On top of all that, you usually have to put up with neighbours using your skip to dump their own junk as well!

What types of items can you have removed?
1. General Household items
2. Old furniture
3. Bric-a- brac
4. Hard Waste & Rubbish
5. Other Rubbish Removal & Junk Removal
The House Clearance Company is expected to clear the house for you, they should arrive with a truck, load the whole lot and the price should includes tip fees & loading time.

What are considered restricted Items by ethical companies?
Some items cannot be loaded into general waste. These Items must be separated from general rubbish and are usually charged separately in addition to the cost of the rubbish load. These items are:
Food stuffs, may only be taken to tipping facilities that accept food waste.
Tyres, may only be taken to centres that accept tyres. (Limit 1 - 3 per visit).
Paints, are becoming increasingly more difficult to dispose of and are likely to be charged on a per tin basis.
Flammables, are only accepted at a few recycling centres and must be contained appropriately.
Liquid wastes, must be taken to approved collection centres (Including car oil & garden chemicals).
PCB's, (Old Transformers etc.) Must be booked in prior to work, taken to approved storage facilities and transported as hazardous material.
Fibreglass insulation, & mineral fibre tiles must be wrapped and are only accepted at some landfill sites.

Asbestos, & Fibro based materials must be wrapped and taken to approved centres only. Asbestos is a very common and highly dangerous material. We strongly advise you not to touch old fibro sheeting unless you are familiar with the safe handling and disposal procedures and have protective clothing, a good quality respirator type face mask, overalls and gloves. Do not cut, grind or break any asbestos cement based products If you have any doubt call a professional.

Taking chances with asbestos is simply not worth the risk

Most House Clearance Companies are not licensed or insured to carry certain hazardous materials. You should contact your local council for information on hazardous waste carriers in your area.
Ensure House Clearance Companies are fully insured to do this work, including cover against any damage caused to a client's property when removing junk from the premises.
Most companies will be unable to provide an exact price over the phone, because prices are based on the amount and type of junk being removed. Until they actually see what is to be removed, they cannot reasonably be expected to give an exact price. It is common practice before starting a job, the company will review the materials to be removed and provide you with an obligation free quote of how much the job will cost.
Most House Clearance Companies will look to clean up fully if that is at all possible, but they cannot be reasonably expected to clear some of the items listed above. It pays to agree exactly what is to moved up front and don€„¢t try to change the terms of the agreement afterwards. They also normally sweep up thoroughly at the end of the job. In the unlikely event that a company does damage your property when removing junk, they should be fully insured and will arrange for any repairs immediately.
