Chilcotts offer a considerate, sensitive and flexible House Clearance service to Executors of Estates and people who are down-sizing. We are often contacted by family members or solicitors in other parts of the country who need to clear the house of a relative in Devon, West Dorset or West Somerset. We are able to handle complete estates, carrying out full house clearance and leaving the property swept clean if required, thus removing worry at a time of stress.

Free Initial Assessment

Please contact us for a free House Clearance Estimate. We would meet you at the property, or collect keys from the solicitor or estate agent, to assess the size and complexity of the clearance and to discuss any specific requirements.

Careful and Flexible Service

Upon receiving your instructions our House Clearance team will set to work accordingly, carrying out part or full clearances, emptying sheds, garages and removing debris from the gardens, as required. Usually, we will take out the antiques and other saleable items first, delivering them to the Salerooms, and then carefully sort through and clear the remainder. We will open and check inside stuck or locked cupboards; we will notify you of any hidden personal or valuable items that we may find.


Our House Clearance rates are competitive, the exact amount will depend on how many vans and people are required, and how long it will take. Disposal fees are charged at cost.


Following the clearance, the key will be returned and an itemised invoice will follow. For estates where a large amount is going into auction, we can deduct the Clearance Invoice from the proceeds of the sale, if preferred.
