New house clearance service launched
Emmaus Merseyside has launched an affordable house clearance service where all of the proceeds are used to support people who have experienced homelessness.
Emmaus Merseyside now offers three levels of house clearance service – a free cherry-pick collection, a partial clearance or a full clear and clean service. The charity aims to re-use much of what it collects, saving items from landfill whilst raising money to sustain the Emmaus Merseyside community home.
“This is a great business opportunity for the charity and a chance for the companions to learn new skills and interact with the local community more.
"The new house clearance service will also help the environment by stopping more furniture going to landfill because at Emmaus we try to recycle all the goods which we can’t sell in the stores.”
Steve, one of the community members who lives and works at Emmaus Merseyside
Emmaus Merseyside supports formerly homeless people by providing a stable home and meaningful work for as long as they need it. The charity runs three charity shops in Merseyside, taking in and selling donated and refurbished furniture, household goods, bric-a-brac, clothes and vintage pieces.
“Emmaus Merseyside collects furniture for our shops so it makes sense that we expand our service to include house clearances. We aim to offer a fast, friendly and professional house clearance service to residents across Merseyside.”
Angela Quinn, Business Manager at Emmaus Merseyside
Emmaus Merseyside is fully insured with public and employer liability insurance and is a registered waste carrier. The team carry out an assessment in advance of the clearance to assess the work, provide a quote if needed and arrange a suitable day to complete the clearance.
