Emmaus Salford launches house clearance service

Emmaus Salford house clearance team

Emmaus Salford has launched an affordable house clearance service where all the proceeds are used to support people who have experienced homelessness.

The charity now offers three levels of house clearance service – a free cherry-pick collection, a partial clearance or a full clear and clean service. Emmaus Salford aims to re-use much of what it collects, saving items from landfill whilst raising money to sustain the Emmaus Salford community home.

“I think the house clearances will be a great way for us to widen our appeal and engage with new Emmaus Salford supporters. It will keep us busy and you never know what items you might find when you do a house clearance.”

Robbo, companion at Emmaus Salford 

Emmaus Salford supports formerly homeless people by providing a stable home and meaningful work for as long as they need it. The charity runs three shops across Salford, taking in and selling donated and refurbished furniture, household goods, bric-a-brac, clothes and vintage pieces. 

“Our Salford house clearance service is a natural extension to what our current social enterprises offer. With everything we receive, Emmaus Salford reuses, recycles or disposes ethically, using the proceeds generated to support our charity.”

“If you need a house, garage, workshop, office or warehouse cleared or stripped out then give us a call for a cost-effective quote. At Emmaus Salford we pride ourselves on doing a great job for a great price.”

Simon Locke, Community Director at Emmaus Salford 

Emmaus Salford 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.
